After a very busy November, writing has slowed down a bit in December. However, I did finish the first draft of my NaNoWriMo project, otherwise known as Thorns Saga #3! I did 50,000 words during November, and finished out the project with only another 5,000 words. I plan to expand significantly in the revision process, so after I finished drafting I read back through it and made notes on additions and new details. Not sure when I’ll actually do the revisions, but at least I have the plans for them.
After that, I turned back to Thorns #1, to hopefully finally get this finished. I have one chapter to write still – my most recent revision pass involved moving things around and I need a new chapter to fill a hole, and it gives me the chance to intro some characters who will be more important in later books. So that’s what I’m working on right now. Then one more complete review and we should be about there! I’m hoping to get this one out into the world in the first half of next year.
With that in mind, I’ve been working on a different project that’s not strictly writing, but is related – I’ve been doing cover designs for all five planned books in the series. So far they’re turning out very nice, so I’ve been enjoying that! Can’t share them for a while though… 😉
I’m aiming to finish the new chapter in Thorns #1 plus a few other edits by the end of the year, then plan to primarily work on Thorns #2. Lots of drafts in process! Hopefully I can get some complete soon. 🙂
One thought on “Writing Update (December, 2022)”
Congratulations on all the writing you have gotten accomplished these last couple of months, especially in November! And I’m excited to hear more about the covers in your new series. Will they be inter-related, as they were with the “Guardian of the Opera” series, with Meg on the cover of each?
