So, I’ve been drinking from the fire hose for about the last week and half. My usual work day is 9:00 – lunchtime which is usually 12:00 (or 1:00) or so. In the afternoons I generally will work on blog posts, or read/respond to emails, or go out to forums to see what is going on in the world of publishing and writing.
But for the last week and a half I’ve been working from 7:00 am – 1:00 am (or sometimes 2:00 am) with only very short breaks for lunch and once again at dinner. In fact, there have been times when I actually can’t see the monitor because my eyes are so burned out. But it’s all good.
I’m deep in the throngs of creating my “next bit series” and it is exciting to be back to building worlds, creating maps, languages, clans and factions, and developing characters. I currently have a rough sketch on 12,000 years of history, developed many words ad how they derive from various cultures, and have plotted out all three books. A nice piece of work for a little over a week.
What I’m hoping is to record my progress through this series and post here. Hopefully it will help others with their writing and those who enjoy my stories will get a bit of a behind the scenes peek at how this all goes.
I’ll try to post at least a quick update every day. I hope you enjoy the journey with me.
