So, maybe I’m terrible at daily updates.
I did well over the weekend, nothing spectacular. Hit word goal each day. Last night I couldn’t sleep and ended up typing a few hundred words into my phone for an idea I had. It seems like it’s going to work well, and it may turn a “Hey, I’m here with some relevant plot information and will now disappear” character into a real character. I don’t know though, we’ll have to see. I think I would need to add a few more chapters into the second book to be able to really set that point. But we shall see!
As to word count we’re sitting at just over 23k. (Not entirely sure why I refered to myself as “we’re” but we’re gonna just go with it.) The characters are developing in an okay way. I wouldn’t say “great” quite yet, but we’re working on it. (There’s that we’re again. I think my characters are trying to get out!)
Not related to Essentials, I had a very interesting (to me, at least) dream that I plan on writing a story about. I wrote the idea down, and the relevent memories and will write it when Essentials is done.
Not related to anything really: I may not get famous, or rich, from my writing but damned if I’m gonna leave it inside my head any more. I want to write my stories, and I want my characters to have lives outside of my head. Maybe people will like, or relate to my characters. And if they don’t, that’s okay at least my characters lived instead of being forgotten inside of my head!
