Day ONE of NaNoWriMo is complete. Current wordcount for Project ZiS: 8331 words. Bloodlines the Third: 57,487.
It’s strange, writing on two projects. I used to do it a lot back in the day, but I veered away from it a while back when it became clear that while I can edit and write, writing two projects at the same time didn’t work for me. I’m a binge writer, which means the book wholly consumes me for days on end. I write fast, nothing else matters, and I do it until the book is complete.
But these two books are very different in style and genre.
So I’m trying it again, because I really want to finish Bloodlines the Third, but I also want to keep writing new things. 2021 was supposed to be a writing year for me. I was going to hold back on trying to publish and focus on writing new stuff. It didn’t turn out quite like I’d wanted, but I’d like to finish the year strong.
Also, in preparation for the upcoming Emerald Fires release, I’ve created an ARC for it. You can check it out on Booksprout. Keep in mind that the review has to be completed by December 1, 2021. Your review can be two sentences or two paragraphs. I don’t care. As long as it’s honest and yours and it’s posted by December 1. Bonus points if you love it.
