Had a lovely time in Australia, and now I'm back. So, this afternoon, I’m about to return to working on my (graphic-ish?) novel in earnest.
Right now. And I'm getting both nervous and excited.
2+ hours a day (minimum of one). 6+ days a week.
Current word count: 26,424.
- solid short synopsis
- clear overarching plot in mind
- a sketch for one illustration
- solid beginning (with small gaps) and established voice
- vastly messy middle with large gaps, unclear plot points, too few characters, and various black holes
- nebulous but forming ending.
Goal: A finished solid first draft by January 9th, 2013.
