Thought I’d drop a post about the progress of the new novel – Starveyors. If you’re following my Making of a Novel series, this is apart from that and more in real time. Those posts are all made in advance and do not reflect where I am at this moment in time.
So, where am I now? I’ve just finished chapter 3 and I’m starting to flesh out the outline for chapter 4, which I will write this week. My unofficial goal is to write a chapter a week. I use the weekend to map out the scenes in the chapter and then write it that week.
I got a bit of a head start on the novel over the holiday break. That means that last week was the first real week of writing. Since I already had chapters 1 and 2 completed.
There are no big hang ups yet and so far the writing is going smoothly. Each chapter is currently under 4000 words. Which is a good size. Other than that, not much to say about it. I’ll try and do a blog update on it each week or so, and update the progress bar.
