Howdy folks! How are we all doing tonight? I hope everyone has had a great weekend.
I’ve had a couple of days off from writing, I wasn’t well yesterday no slept most the day after finishing work. And Friday I had my little one and then errands to run.
Today I got cracking nice and early and got 1409 of War Child written. I was aiming for 1000 words and I was about 600 words in by 11am and when I next looked at just after midday I saw I was past the fourteen hundred mark and decided to call it a day as I had a lot around the house to do.
It’s kind of that steady progress, working through one scene after another until I’m happy with them. It’s a little bit editing and a big bit rewriting to include details to build the world. Sometimes I find trying to insert details into a scene can make it feel forced and I don’t want that. I want it to feel as smooth and organic as possible. This story, War Child, is the most complicated story I’ve ever attempted. I think I can do it, but it’s going to take a little time. I need to get some sort of plan of how I’m going to get this done from start to finish. Book one through to book whatever.
I think I need to be working on other projects while I’m doing it though. I need a little variation in what I’m doing. It’ll probably be short stories I’ll be working on but it’s still something where there isn’t the pressure of War Child. I can have a little fun with them. Also, not for nothing, getting short stories finished will serve as a good morale boost. I find it can be a little monotonous working on one big project at a time.
This coming week has a lot of potential and I’m hoping I can tap into it.

1409 is fantastic. I didn’t write any today. I’ll be back at it tomorrow!
