18th October 2019

Good morning folks. I’m having a play with the scheduling feature, so if this doesn’t go live at 11am I made a booboo somewhere!

Today, or yesterday as it were I wrote about 500 words but I did a lot of editing in the time I had available to me. I’m now at the point of CS1 where I’ve got to decide what direction to take the story in. I’ve got two choices, but I’m kinda tempted to try and merge the two and see what happens.

Where I’m thinking about this years NaNo I’ve realised I’ve still not gone through and edited what I done last year. I’ve done a couple but that’s about it. I’ve got ten short stories in various stages of first drafts and I need to get them tidied up. Which is making me think that next year is going to be a heavy editing year. I’m considering dropping my word count target to something like 10k a month and going heavy on editing.

That’s the lot for now, I’ll end with a cute picture of a cat that I’ve just taken.

Anarch by Dan Abnett

This isn’t exactly going to be a book review. More of a case of how I feel about this book and what I hope for the series.

Anarch is the latest Gaunts Ghosts book by Dan Abnett. I’m a big fan of this series and was super excited when books started coming out from it again. The Warmaster was fantastic and Anarch rolls right on from the end of that book.

I liked the direction Abnett took Anarch. He teased us with the return of a character in The Warmaster, which was a bit of a rollercoaster throughout Anarch (trying not to spoiler here), and took us in a few directions I wasn’t expecting.

Something I’m kind of hoping is that Abnett has an endgame in sight. Don’t get me wrong, a big part of me would read these books for the rest of my life, but I wonder where else Abnett can take them. Hey, if he’s got an ace up his sleeve that’ll let him write these books for years, cool, but I’ve got the feeling from these last two books, well at least the last three if I’m honest, that he’s bringing it in to an ending.

I haven’t looked up any details online. If Dan Abnett is bringing these to an end I don’t want to know until I’ve read that last sentence.

17th October 2019

Good evening, folks. It’s been a busy week so far, but I have got a few words written. Granted it’s not as many as I’d have liked but it’s still words down. It’s not that many words as much of it is editing. Today is a good example. I wrote 334 on CS1 over yesterday and today, but edited three or four chapters. So words were taken out while others were added.

I do have to keep reminding myself that even if I don’t hit a 1000 words a day I’m still making progress as I’m editing. It’s a key part of the process that I know a lot of writers despise, but it’s something I don’t mind. It’s all part of getting a book from start to finish. It needs to be done.

I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with the ending of CS1 just yet. I’ve got two options I can go in, I just have no idea at the moment which way to go with it. At the moment I think I’ll do what I’ve done in the pass and see where it goes while I’m working on it.

NaNoWriMo preparation is moving slowly but I’ve got enough to get me going and then rolling if I get stuck. I’m going for the same method last year of short stories and novellas. So when I do get stuck on one, which will happen, I can hop over onto another one. This worked well for me last year, and I think it’ll work for me nicely this year. Although I’m not planning for NaNoWriMo 2020 just yet I think I will go back to a single story then. I’ve got a few ideas in mind for what I’m going to have a go at.

Right, it’s almost my bedtime so I’m calling it a night. Have a good one folks!
