Incarnators Week 6

Not a great week of writing but better. I have worked out some kinks with Incarnators and done some plotting. I also spent a bit of time hammering out the last few steps of getting Whispers of the Dead published. Happily, I did accomplish that goal. Whispers of the Dead went on sale at Amazon today. All the other stores will soon follow.

As far as Incarnators goes it is time to get serious. Work is back in session for me tomorrow. Students return on Wednesday. This is actually not a bad thing for me. I actually write a lot better when I am not on summer vacation. Despite my slow start I have not changed my mind on when I want to be done. Incarnators has to be finished by the end of October or beginning of November. This will give me time to take a break and then hammer out the edits. I would like to get the book out before the end of the year. This is going to mean a 2000 word a day goal for at least 30 of the next 60 days. I feel confident I can get it done. I am rested and my brain is clear. It is time to crank this baby out.

This week I spent a lot of time on my new character. His name is Mouse and I love him a lot. I hope my evil side does not get the best of me. I don’t always treat the characters I love very well. Having said that I have a character from the first book who I thought wouldn’t make it past the fourth chapter who has become a major player. Writing is always full of surprises for me.

Starting on Monday I will start updating the word count on a daily basis. I will not count any words that I have written so far (mostly because I think most of them were background story which I am not sure will be included). Check back in if you’re a fan and you can see the word count roll and know you are getting closer to finding out how the whole horrific thing ends. In the meantime I need to get some sleep. Busy week ahead. We have new carpet being installed. School starts and a whole lot of furniture moving.

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.
