Today I’m taking stock of what I have done in recent days and what I’m going for next.
Recently I completed two books for my historical series, A Twist of Fate and A Secret Tie. This meant a lot to me because this was solid writing progress. I started both the books last year and then got stuck and moved to something else. When I came back, a fresh look revealed the stumbling blocks and I was able to resuming writing with speed. In fact, A Secret Tie required only one and a half month to complete. It was done upto 14k last year and I finally finished at 78k. So, those were some productive days writing wise. But then Hitaksha and Yashita were intriguing characters with lots of conflict to write about and their adventures in the ancient kingdoms were quite fun.
Now for what’s next.
At the moment, I’m expanding the first book in the series. Since the second and third are novel length, and now I have a fuller grasp of the characters, I want to write in more detail of the first one, Against the Tide. It seems odd to go back to the same series, but after writing the last two books, I felt I hadn’t done justice to Jayat and Lohana, so you might say, I want to give their romance more footage, lol. I might release the newly written book as a second edition. I don’t know if adding about 20k words to the first edition of the book would be all right. Any thoughts? You can share in the comments. I think it could pose problem with the reviews which have been posted already.
So, what’s going on with your projects – writing or otherwise? Do share! I think it will help to keep track how much we get done.
Hope you have a productive week.
