Status Update: 5/28/17
Upcoming Novel Progress: Chapter 18 rough draft finished, Chapter 19 in the works.
Current Total Word Count: 36,839
It’s May 28th, 2017. You might have noticed that the word count and chapter count went down. I actually had close to 21 chapters complete, but part of the way through, the third act was losing its focus. It had a plot line I didn’t like and didn’t make sense as time went on. As such, I went back from Chapter 17 and worked my way up again.
I still intend to finish a rough draft by late June, so here’s hoping this new story sticks.
I have always been a pantser at heart and any outlines I would do were no more than a single paragraph of what happened in each chapter (I usually save the scene list outline stuff until I have a story that’s more concrete). Even writing such paragraphs, I always deviate from them when I come up with a better idea as I’m writing.
So a minor setback, but still on target.
Happy Memorial Day
Happy Memorial Day for those in the US. Time for parades and barbecues. Not much to say, really. Sometimes, these news posts are kept simple. I will have topics every so often and I’ll keep the small talk to a minimum. By the time this post goes up, I’ll be watching the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I loved the first one and I hope this one is even better. Perhaps next week, I’ll give my general opinion on the film. I won’t give a full blown review of it (I don’t have the stamina to do a play-by-play review of it, especially in one sitting), but I will give some brief thoughts about it as a whole.
That’s all for today. Take care, and remember, the inn is always open.
