It is April 1st and time to launch forward with writing my next novel. I am currently calling it The Dawning, which may change. I just feel better when something has a name.
I have spent a few days outlining the story, taking notes, and doing research to align my thoughts with an idea that has been formulating for at least 6 years. I am very excited to finally begin working on this book. Hoping to have it finished by the end of the month.
I don’t want to give too many details, but it will be meant to be a science-fiction, dystopian YA novel. I made it through the first 1,000 words last night of the actual book. I felt like it was a nice jump start before really delving in today.
For any of you that stuck with me through January when I finished Melkorka, you know I will be a hit and miss this month on the website. I am planning to keep up with my general output of around 18,000 – 25,000 words per week (depending on schedule and coffee resources).
Enjoy your day!
