Books & Writing January 2017


Well. My writing year started off with a bang. On average I wrote 1,392 words per day, ending up with 143.85% of my original 30,000-word goal. That's taking into consideration all the days I only did my minimal of 500 words per day.This leads me to believe that for the rest of 2017 I could bump up my wordcount goals to 1,500 words per day.

I did a lot of character profiles from the Blacktree storyverse. I'm pretty sure I've got all the major characters that will be appearing in Unchained and some extra just in case. They're not 100% complete character profiles (there's no such thing) but they'll more than get me started.

Every now and then I took a stab at the world I've dubbed The Fairy Godmother Problem. I didn't focus on it but it was there to give my brain a bit of a rest while allowing me to make wordcount and feel productive. I'm almost sorry that this story is set in a fairy tale version of the 1600's because the phrase "bippity boppity fuck you" is awesome and I'll never get to use it. (At least, not in The Fairy Godmother Problem...)

To wrap up January I started working on the Seven Point Story Structure for Unchained. This will definitely be getting scrapped fairly early on but it's allowing me to get an idea of which characters are involved, what settings will come into play, and the aspects of worldbuilding I need to focus on for this particular story.

My streak of consecutive days writing was at 72 days at the end of the month. That's... damn....
