So, here’s what’s been going on…

Sorry. I kind of fell off of WordPress again without meaning to. I don’t know why, but it seems like it takes less energy to just make a quick post on social media than it does posting on here.

Anyway, many awesome things have happened. First draft complete, as shown via Instagram.

Okay, it wasn’t really “done” done at this time…I was frustrated lol. But after getting past some printing complications, which required using up two whole cartridges of black ink…and fighting headaches/migraines…

…Then creating a fun Editing Key for the novel and to make myself happy again…

I finally printed the first draft manuscript in its entirety, reaching a proud 470 pages and 130792 words.

I’m incredibly proud of the work I’ve done, but there’s much more to come. I’ll be sharing my creative projects more frequently now that the first draft is complete. More music, more art, more writing, more everything. I’m excited to share with you all.

I probably should stop announcing it and just do it.

Yeah. Get ready.

First Draft Progress: Four Days Until Deadline

Words Written Today: 1132 Words (I did more editing/rereading than writing to prepare for the ending lol)
Approx Total Word Count: 115k Words

If I were to guess how many chapters were left, I’d say about…three to four and only one of them will be much longer than the rest of them. Then I have to rewrite the prologue. We’ll see.

A little research on mythology, but mostly writing today. I had a tiny “writer’s block”, if those are even real, and successfully conquered it. It got me thinking about character arcs and making sure I do them right.

I’m so tired, but today was a fabulous day.

Do you think writer blocks are real? I don’t think they are anymore lol.
