Chapter 5 complete!

Today I added another 2,350 words to my book, finishing chapter 5 and getting well into chapter 6!  A lot of that was someone telling a story about the history of the world, which I had already created, but I had to edit it a bit to be more in that characters voice. I now …

Well into chapter 5!

I added another 2,200 words to my book today! (I’ve only had about an hour of writing time!) I’m continuing on with the ‘make it up as I go’ plan until my hero reaches the next city. I have major plot plans for the city. He’s currently on day six of an eight day stretch, …

Chapter 4 complete!

So before I got back into writing, whenever I thought about my book I usually thought about the beginning – what happens to my hero while he is still in his home town.  I thought about it so often that I had a clear image in my mind.  When I came to actually writing it, …

History of the World

Today I created the ancient history of my world!  I had not even planned on doing it today, but I suddenly started thinking about it and now here it is!  I already had a basic idea but now it is fleshed out and I am pretty pleased with how it all fits together.

And Chapter 2!

Definitely feeling very productive today! The first draft of chapter two is also complete!  Again, it’ll need edits and additions, but I am still pretty pleased with what I have achieved today!

Chapter 1 completed!

Well, by completed I mean the first draft is completed and later I’ll have to go back through it and add or edit a whole bunch of stuff.. but the idea is out! I also rewrote everything I had already done in chapter 1. I guess old habits die hard and I decided to go …

Chapter 1: it’s a start..

So it has been a month since I wrote my prologue, and since then I have not found the time to write much at all, but today I started chapter one! Ok, so I am only 560 words in, and I am not quite sure if I like any of those words, but it’s still …
