Incarnators Week 16

Welcome to the shortest novel update ever. Today is my birthday and I have been informed by my brother that I am suppose to take the day off. I was going to write something yesterday but I was still recovering from food poisoning. If you have never had food poisoning, consider yourself lucky.

This is the second time I have had it in my life and it is miserable. I am serious, it should be used as an interogation device. I thought I was dying. I would have told anyone anything just to make it stop. It was a long 6 hours before it let up enough to go to sleep. Yesterday was better and today I appear almost full speed.

As for Incarnators, I am almost done. How almost? It will be finished this week. I think I have about 8,000 more words to go. Hard to completely estimate but I know this is close. I will cross over the 90,000 word mark tomorrow. The final word count will be somewhere between 95,000 and 100,000.

I am in the process of writing the final big fight. Then I have a little wrap up to leave characters in a lovely place going forward. This isn’t going to be a Disney finish. There will be some loose ends. My ending in a lot of ways will be the beginning of my characters next journey. It is a journey I will not be writing. I may go back someday but I never planned on ending it where everything was “happy ever after”. My plan had always been, we survived. Next week this blog will be writing about how excited I am to be done.

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.
