I’t’s been a long time since I have been productive. I procrastinated and pretended that everything was fine. But it wasn’t. I knew it wasn’t. Skyrim has been the outlet for my frustration and sadness and a method of avoiding the work I should have been doing. I couldn’t even blog properly. Yet somehow modding the damned game made my creativity flow again. The winter just arrived to this hemisphere but in my head the winter is over. *Happy Dance*
Within the past few days I wrote two and a half chapters worth of story, and I’m only a few chapters away from finishing Part One (which is more of a Book One, to be fair).
It wasn’t a perfect piece of the story, but at least it was something. Something that can be edited and built upon. I don’t really care now what it is as long as I’m putting those words out and finish this year. I can see my goal clearly again! Then I will be editing a bit and going through a few beta-readers before setting out to write Parts Two and Three. Those are barely in development yet, though I know what I will be doing there. Writing multi-POV books is hell, I tell you. Writing epic-sized multi-POV books is triple that. And no matter what I do, it takes me a year to write a medium-novel-sized book (~90k). I hope to celebrate the New Year with one of my goals completed.
It is too early to say if I will be releasing the story in three parts or as one piece, but it won’t happen until all of it is written. There is a possibility that I will handle finishing the next two parts faster. I’ve been doing this before.
At least I no longer feel guilty to be called a writer. I’m writing, after all. 😀
