Incarnators Week 17

Ladies and gentleman we have completion. The first draft is done. I finished it on Thursday and this is the first time I have sat down at the keyboard since. I needed some days off and I took them. It felt great. I played a lot of video games and read a couple of books.

This is my second completed novel of the year. I have now written over 200,000 words this year. I have slayed a lot of words. I am a regular word serial killer. It feels great to be done. Especially, since there was a time I was unsure if this novel would ever get written. The decision to publish it on my own was a good one. It forced me to finish it. I have now completed my first trilogy. I am fairly certain it won’t be my last.

Now I am going to take the rest of October off from working on novels. I might dabble on my comic script. Not sure yet. I might need some kickback time. I need to read a few more novels. When Novemeber comes around I begin editing. I will have two novels to edit. So it is going to be a while before I get to the next novel. Probably not until next year around March.

My goal is still Decemeber to get Incarnators out. I will then immediately begin working on the Keepers editing and hope to have it out by March or April. Then it will be back to writing novels. I still hope to get two written next year. I know which ones I am going to be working on next and feel confident I will be able to get them out. In the meantime, I am going to take some well deserved time off. It has been months of solid writing and now will be months of editing. This writing thing never seems to end.

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.

  1. Grats on completing the novel draft. Two in one year is pretty good.
