Today I’ve had a 2100 word morning which has wrapped up the short story I’ve been working on for my vampire collection. 6600 words in four days all in; which I’m really happy about. I’m quite happy with how this story went as well, despite the fact that it went off in a totally different direction to what I had, roughly, planned. As it did this it totally screwed up two other stories which happen later on. One of which has a first draft done, and is the last of the collection. The other one is just a rough synopsis at the moment but because of the events in the story I’ve just completed I’m not sure where I these two will go. The one that’s completed i could still use, but i think it’s not going to be in this collection. The other one will take some adjusting of the synopsis but I think i can still make it work nicely.
Something I think these changes could benefit is that I can use this new story thread more down the line then I and originally planned. I feel like the characters who have messed up my plans have a real flip-side to them that’ll be a lot of fun to explore.
