So, yesterday I started to think about trying this challenge of writing three books in twelve weeks. After sleeping on it and poking at it in my head all day, I have decided to do it.
It is going to be a challenge. The last one I tried a year ago was writing a novel in 21 days. I got it done. Had it up for a bit, but then needed to take it down since I didn’t do a good enough job with the copy edit. (It will be back up soon.) It was a struggle, but I made it. Now, I am going to be working on three books in twelve weeks. That is rather crazy.
But, I am up to it. I am currently working notes and the like. I don’t “start” until midnight PST. But, I might try for a small early jump to it with plotting and the like. Which is going to be odd for me since I am a pantser for the most part and don’t really plot until later. We will see how that goes.
For now, it is a combo of steampunk and space opera. Who knows, I might be able to make it work. Or have it crumble into nothing. But, won’t know either until I try it.
I plan on keeping this blog updated every day, or every other day at the most, with word counts and where I am in the process. I just opened up the Scrivener document and put in a place holder title, “Mars Flight.” Why? Well, I know that the first scene will be on Mars, I have always been a Mars junkie…read my 4Pollack novels.
A good question that could be asked is, “Why don’t you work on the next three books in the Book of the Void series?” Can’t give you an answer. I know that I want to do more with that series, but I want to start with something fresh and new. Don’t worry, I will get back to that series and to 4Pollack as well.
I am going to end this entry now and start up on plotting and world building. Thank you all for reading and I hope that you follow me as I do this.
Until next time…
