My first Dreams & Echoes book is finally nearing completion, nine months in the making. I hope my second book doesn't take that long to write.
Monday - Typed and arranged 5,000 words from my notes, Chapter 1 complete
Tuesday - Typed and arranged 5,000 words from my notes, Chapter 2 complete
Hopefully Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are no different.
25,000 words this week, again the week of May 18th-22nd, and again the week of 25th-29th and the book should be completely written for edit.
The whole ordeal makes me wish sometimes I'd written the book in some sort of order, and that I had the ending decided on and written. The week of 25th and 29th will be difficult because I'll have no notes past 55,000-60,000 words, meaning the final 3-4 chapters will be written entirely with no command + c, command + v.
I think the last 15,000 words will pretty much write themselves when I get there. May 27th, 28th, and 29th are going to be magical, assuming I can stay on schedule and nothing unforeseen occurs. It'll be nice to take July and finish my RPG without distraction, then start D&E book 2 in August.
If I could crank out my D&E Book 1, my RPG books, and D&E book 2 all in 2010, that would be epic.
