Even though I finished Bloodlines on the weekend, I am still actively writing. Book 2 is being planned at the moment, and my genuine hope is to have it finished by the new year.
I forgot to mention that when I was outlining book 1, I used this video, from Katytastic, as a guide. I didn’t quite follow the 9 chapters per act rule, instead making mine 6. But it’s a good little guide and makes the outlining process easier to digest.
I’ve been writing scene ideas onto a page the past few days, and today I started figuring out where each of the scenes actually take place in the novel. It does look like it’ll be a longer book than the first, which is definitely a good thing. But I can’t tell how much it’ll increase. I’m hoping around 70k for this book, but we’ll see.
Yesterday I didn’t really get much done, because I had a day off sick due to a massive out-of-the-blue migraine. I’ve recovered today, and I’m excited by the possibilities of this next venture.
Hope everyone is enjoying their time with their novels! 12 more days to go! You can do it! 😀
