So my plan for today was to finish writing the third of the vampire stories I’m working on, then do a little bit of another short story I’ve started and then work on a proposal for a story in mine and Owen’s universe.
That didn’t happen. I had a friend who needed my help today and there was no way I wasn’t going to be there for them. I did manage to get the vampire story almost done; I may even only have a couple of sentences to go but my brain threw in the towel after 1350 handwritten words this afternoon.
After I did that I spent a few minutes adding files to my Scrivener document for this universe. I’m writing by the seat of my pants here, which is a lot of fun, but there are unresolved elements from the first book and I need to address those. For one storyline in particular I really wasn’t sure what direction to go in but I had a lightbulb moment and I now know how to progress that characters story now. As he is pretty much a main POV character from the first book I didn’t want to just leave him hanging or give him a story where he is just doing the same thing as the last book.
This second vampire book feels like it has a slightly different tone to the last one, which I’m liking. I don’t want my books to just be carbon copies of each other. I’d like each one to have a distinctive feel to it.
NaNoWriMo is just around the corner so I need to get these couple of short stories wrapped up before then, so I need to get my butt into gear.
