Two weekends of writing on the second book and I’m over 6,000 words in. I’m happy with that progress. Actually, ecstatic. My blog url is “firstnovelblog” but now I’m working on the second. I think that’s ok since I’ve not published my first. If it ever gets published.
One more weekend of writing on the second novel and then back to the first. This will be the third edit on the first novel and preparation for beta readers. If I get any. Next weekend will be a four-day weekend. One day off, weekend + MLK day. I should get a bunch done.
I’m using Scrivener still. I take the time now to do a synopsis on every scene and list out the characters and word count. I feel more organized. Hopefully I learned something from my disorganized approach to the first book. Can’t wait for the iPad version of Scriv.
Right now I’m planning to spend a lot of time trying to get the first novel published traditionally vs self-published. I just don’t feel like an experienced enough writer to go the self-pub route. I’d like the help of an agent, etc.
The title of the first novel changed to match up better with the second. I like the new title. It’s a series.
That’s all for this weekend. I’m going to do some arpeggio work on my bass here before lunch and then head over to a meeting of my writer group this afternoon.
