Words Written Today: 2726 words

No research. Just writing today.

Research I probably should do:

  • Linguistics
  • How to make a language for your fantasy world

Additional Work: More plot organization, cause we’re wrapping this first one up pretty soon. ❤

I am definitely rethinking the ending for this first novel. In my notebooks, I had an ending that’s a bit too obscure. Like I said in my previous post when I was critiquing the Game of Thrones show, endings are hard, but the last thing you want to do is make it look like you’re saying “Sorry guys, I don’t know what the hell I’m doing! Lol bye!”. You also don’t want to do the opposite. You don’t want the ending to be so ambiguous that your audience is not only dissatisfied, but also not even wondering, let alone caring, about the story’s next installment. I want my ending to punch my readers in the gut and I want them to ask me to punch them again.

So, I’ll be thinking with punches in mind.

Here’s some of the music I listened to while writing today.
