The Dark Lands Book 2 Week 13

I will be over 85,000 words before this weekend is out and this book will now become my new longest book. I may not have quality down yet but I am definitely working on the quantity. I think the final word count will top 90,000. Maybe by a couple of thousand words.

It’s hard to tell because I am definitely at the end of the story. All of my plot lines are coming together and the ending is near. I am hoping to be done by next weekend. With book two out of the way I will start my steampunk novel.

I know that I am going to have to carefully edit the last 10,000 words of this story. I have been thinking a lot about the steam- punk novel and I want to make sure that I didn’t let this book suffer because my mind was wandering.

I am also going to finish several comic scripts and short stories that I have been batting around. I want to get a few writing projects out at the same time. Truthfully, I think I can still write a good comic script and want to get something in the mail. I don’t like writing superheroes so that will force me to write for the Vertigo line which is much harder to break into. Once again my goal is to get it by the readers into an editor’s hand. Personalized rejection means I am in the ballpark.

Tune in next week where I hope to be able to write the faithful words, the end. I also plan to give a brief preview of the Steampunk novel sometime next week. I have a working title and a few tidbits I want to throw out there.

About csdaley

C.S. Daley was born in California but has spent most of his life in his imagination. His first short story written in third grade, the now classic "Close Encounters of the Turd Kind," was sold to his next door neighbor for a quarter. The neighbor promptly demanded a refund. An unhealthy obsession with the writings of Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, and Terry Pratchett have left his mind warped and broken. He spends most of his evening swilling down coffee while tapping at a keyboard under the watchful eyes of his kittens. They are there to make sure he doesn't snap. He likes to write fantasy for adults and teens.
