I started writing a new book this week. For those of you wondering, it’s Bloodlines the Third, the conclusion to Nicola’s arc. BL2 is in final edits and proofreading and formatting stages and so I decided to let myself kind of play with plots and things for the third book.
It took me about a day to play with. Maybe two. Then I was like… hey, why don’t I write this scene to get the hang of this particular new character that I don’t know, because this character doesn’t have an arc yet. So I did. Then I wrote the next scene for fun. Then another happened and before I knew it, it’s been 5 days and I have 43k on it now….
This was supposed to be my NaNo project. I mean, I’m not complaining that I wrote all the words, but I kind of am because I’ve pretty much let everything else fall by the wayside.
I’m going to probably be done with the discovery draft by the end of the month. I should probably concentrate more on the second book, considering all the things I haven’t done on it…
But BL3 has been so much fun and I’m having such a fantastic time writing it.
My writing process changes with every book. I’m kind of hoping that next time I try this book’s process, it works like this again. It’s been a lot of fun.
Only bad thing is that it’s been inflaming my wrist, typing so much. I could learn how to dictate, but I need my voice for other things. So I’m going to go get an ice pack for it and chill. But really, who are we kidding here? I’ll be back on the computer in like an hour because I can’t help myself and my Book Brain is strong right now.
