The End

Posted by on Apr 26, 2011 in General Chaos | 8 comments

Finally, after about a week of trying to finish one scene, the first draft is DONE. I’m really proud of this one. Weighing in at a sleek and slender 60k words almost on the nose. I’m debating another title change at this point, to Fenrir’s Boon, but I’m not sure about it yet. I’m going to let it fester… I mean sit for a few days at least before I start hacking it apart. I think the plot is pretty well settled, just a few things I have to go back and tweak. I’ll work on the description , loglines and such in the meantime. I’m excited. πŸ™‚

  1. Woohoooo! What a huge accomplishment! Congratulations… I hope you’ve been celebrating! (And what a beautiful picture, by the way!) πŸ™‚

  2. Yay!

    I think writing something else helps to get the story out of your head so you can see it with new eyes when you go back.

  3. Thanks!

    I’ve had another idea simmering for a few weeks now that I wanted to put some words toward, but I’m fearful of getting drawn in and not finishing up this one. Right now I’m making notes on things that I want to change, parts that I want to expand, that kind of stuff.

  4. Congrats on finishing your draft.

  5. Yay! Good work.

  6. I hate to put this way down here but it fits better here, and I just recently thought of this. I hope you see it.

    Anyway-have you figured out I like that word, πŸ™‚ Anyway, have you thought about what the next book in the series will be about?

    A while back I came up with an idea for the next one in the New Mage series–or what hope will be a series-but I didn’t want that idea for the second book. Well, thanks to reading a book my John Levitt I have the basic-very basic- idea for the Number two plot which means that idea I had months ago could be Three. (I nod) that works better.

    • Well, I’m not certain it will be a series. In principle, I’m sort of adverse to sequels. This story may have a follow-on, but it would be with a different main character. As the story stands now, I leave a pretty big loose end untied that I would use another character to deal with. I’m not sure if it would be novel-length though, I tend to think not.

  7. Well, it sounds like a series with that title and history of the “family”. But doesn’t mean it has to be one.
