The end of week two is bringing me closer to the half-point mark, and I will confess myself pleasantly surprised at both my time management and my story management. The plot had come out of this place in the recess of my brain which I wholly attribute to the years that I had spent in college studying legal procedure and jurisprudence. That and, considering part of my day job is knowing about trusts and estates….yeah. Slight spoiler there, considering another main character had kicked the bucket, but there we go.
And I’m definitely ahead of schedule. I will be able to, if I keep writing at the pace that I’m writing, to wrap it up on November 24th. And that would make me very happy indeed, because it means that after the writing frenzy is done, I can use the Thanksgiving Week to actually relax.
Which will be awesome, really, but I learned from the misadventure of Book 5: finish quickly, and the rest can always be edited. This manuscript I aim to wrap up in full by December 31st.
In other news, music! Music everywhere! I had a wonderful time seeing Jeff Lorber Fusion on Monday, and will write about it as soon as I get back from Steve Cole’s show tonight, and the incomparable Acoustic Alchemy tomorrow afternoon. Lots of music for Christmas…just the way I like it.
Shout-out to my people in NY and everywhere, and to everyone who, like me, is in NaNoWriMo.
