The Academy of the Accord is giving me a headache.
Yes, I know. I’m supposed to be working on Onyx Sun, and I am, but yesterday I had a few flashes of insight into The Academy of the Accord and scribbled them down (and typed them up so I could read them later).
One of those flashes of brilliance belongs with a scene that I’m pretty sure has been cut (but which I know still exists in one of the previous versions). The headache comes from not knowing what book it’s going to go in.
I’m pretty sure it can’t be Book 5.5 (which will be Book 6 eventually but I’m really not ready for the re-numbering headache yet!) but I’m not sure how to get it to fin into the current Book 6 of 7 either. Seven would be a better fit, I think. It definitely has to come before Book 8.
I really need to get Onyx Sun finished and off to a beta reader so I can get back to work on The Academy of the Accord.
I think working on Onyx Sun (and catching up on the blog hops from last weekend, which I still haven’t done) is going to be my main goal for the rest of the day today – and maybe over the weekend, too, although I want to get this weekend’s blog hops done as they happen. (It seems like if I don’t do them on the weekend they don’t get done until just before the next round starts. I’m not quite sure why that is.)
In other words, my goals for today are pretty much the same as they were for Monday.
But on the other hand, at least I’m not any further behind.
