Camp Ramblings 4-25-14

I did it!  I got caught up!

Well, until the clock ticked over to midnight I was caught up.  I still need to get today’s words in and I’ll be caught up again – and hopefully a bit ahead, even though I have to go back to work today.  But, yeah, I can definitely do this.

And I will definitely never do this to myself again – let myself get this far behind on a NaNo event.  I’ve been enjoying the challenge of getting caught up, but I don’t think I want to do this on a regular basis.

I have been working on Book Three of The Other Mages trilogy instead of Books One and Two as planned.  I now have a totally different beginning to it.  (This is my third beginning of it, in case anyone is keeping count.)  I’m pretty sure that I like it better than the second one, but it’s missing a lot that I like from the first one, so…

What to do?

The answer is easy – keep on writing this one until it merges into the body of the original, then, when the time comes, print both of them and see what I can do about changing and recombining.

And don’t worry about it until then because the chances are that Book Two will lead to more changes for Book Three anyhow.

(Someday I will learn how to not write books out of order.  On second thought, given the mess that is The Academy of the Accord series, it’s too late for me – save yourselves!)

  1. Congrats on getting caught up. I feel for you on the beginning rewrite. My current WIP probably has had 3-4 different beginnings so far lol.
