14. Writing Out Loud

So some may have noticed that I haven’t posted on this series of blog posts much lately. Yes, I am working, and no, I don’t have an excuse for not posting. All I can say is that I have had some pressures around me that made me deviate from blogging a little.

So here’s what I’ve been up to.

The week before last I finished writing the final book in a boxed set series of romances I was working on. A total of approximately 11K. The following week I edited it and compiled the final book as well as the boxed set. Today I sent out the final newsletters announcing its release. Yay! That’s done. And I honestly don’t know when I will revisit that pen name. It’s not performing like I hoped it would. And I would much rather work on for stories for the Bre Faucheux pen name than my romances right now. Especially since my income isn’t any different as a result of having branched out to another genre.

The last three days I have been revising the first book in the fantasy I have been working on for over a year. I’m 130 pages into this process. Next week I hope to finish and read over the drafts I wrote for the second book. At first I thought I was going to scrap most of what I wrote for the second one. Now, I’m not so sure. Certain parts may need to be redone, but not all. The first book is now at around 75k. The second is currently unfinished at 53K. With the plans I have for Nanowrimo and possibly finishing the second book in that time, it might over 100K by the time I’m done.

And that’s the state of the union. I want to finish reading over and editing the first book (at least to some degree) by next Tuesday, and then have what I wrote for the second book at least revised in some form by next Friday. With that being done, I might be ready for Nanowrimo.

Technically speaking for Nanowrimo, we are supposed to start something completely new. Excuse me while I burst into hysterical laughter. The thought of starting something new right now makes me want to rip out my own heart and gauge out my eyes. So…nope. Not gonna happen. Finishing the sequel to my trilogy it is. At least for the time being.
