Updates on writing:
I have been at work on my novel and 130 pages in now and feeling good about its direction. I was waffling with the pov and tense, but I have settled on the traditional– third person past tense. It works best.
I have a new title too which is perfect. Yet, I will not share any part of my novel until it’s published.
I realize that the genre a crucial piece, and so I will stick with dystopian–even thought it is ripe with other elements and I’m not sure about the saturation of dystopian. I hope mine is not overdone. It is written with adults in mind, so that is one aspect that is different (maybe). I’m definitely not writing with teens in mind.
My goal is to complete a draft in a month (maybe two). It is a lofty goal, but I think I can do it. Each day I have a new scene, a new idea. I’m immersed so completely that I am drained, at times. I can write up to 10k words in a sitting if I’m focused enough–with few distractions. But then there is the returning for edits, the evolving of a new idea or strand, and on it goes. Always a process.
