Progress Update May 2021

The last couple of months have been hectic, but after a major change in my life, things have stabilized and I can spend more time writing in the evenings. So where are things at?

Book 2 has been outlined twice from start to finish and I’m very happy with it. I’m glad I took the extra time to work on this, expanding the plot, world and mythos. Currently I’m working on character arcs to make sure they grow, evolve and interact in a way that is organic and in tandem with the plot. Thereafter I’ll formalize the environmental sketches and then I can finally start the first draft. With everything in place, writing the draft should be significantly faster than with my previous novel (pantsing is fun but not very time efficient).

Cheers,
AJ
