My eyes have finally healed enough for me to work on writing again. The last two weeks I’ve been outlining a new novel.
This is a new step for me. I don’t normally outline before I start writing. What I like to do is write and then make mini outlines of what I want the next three or four events to be. Generally when I start writing a novel, I have an end point in mind. Then, I work to get my characters there by preventing them from getting it too soon. (At least that’s how I think of it in my mind).
So at this point, the next step should be drafting, but…
There are two other stories that I want to write. Both are in different stages.
My three projects are:
1. Mages of the Lake (already wrote about 50,000 words during Nanowrimo last year) This one could be worked on. At first when I wrote it, I didn’t really want to do more with it, but now that some time has passed, I can see what needs worked on and what I’d like to change.
2. A New Novel Set in the Magical Realms Universe. This one would focus on Zak before he met Jamie. This is the one I’ve been outlining.
3. A BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW novel about magic that’s been hidden and then found in our time.
So… my brain can’t seem to focus because I keep thinking about all three. I’m honestly not sure which one to work on now. I would like to pick one and get it to a final draft.
I’m going to work on the outline for the second one until I decide. By April, I am going to decide and focus and buckle down!
Anyway, happy reading and writing today and every day!
