I had a great, relaxing trip this weekend. We celebrated birthdays, mother's day, and all sorts of other things. However, I didn't get any writing done at all. So my streak stops at 30.
That's fine. All it means is that I get to start a new streak today! Right now I'm tackling a huge amount of revisions for Book 2. My plan is still to produce an audio book for it, and that takes a couple months of hard work all by itself. So, I'd really like to get the final draft done as soon as possible.
I'm also making sure that Book 2 ties in well with the whole series. Remember when I talked about creating the character of Syra in Book 1 so I could use her in Book 2? Well, I want to make sure if I have to do something similar for Book 3, I can.
Writing a series is hard work. There is a lot of planning that has to go into it and a lot of faith. I don't know for sure how the plot of each book will turn out. I have a general idea, but until the words hit the page, I can't be sure.
So, I have to be very deliberate in my methodology. I outline, plan, and prewrite in order to make sure the overall narrative connects in a logical way.
I'm making good progress, despite taking the weekend off. I'm looking forward to what the next few weeks bring :)
