It has been 4 weeks since my first interludes post, so I thought it was a good time to do one again. To be fair, I hadn’t planned it, but it fit in the schedule, which meant I went with the flow. To be honest, I’ve had a really hard time lately to get the right inspiration for the flash fiction. And I think I know why.
It’s almost November, which means NaNoWriMo is coming up. For those who don’t know what that is, I’ve mentioned it in the previous interludes. It’s basically a challenge to write a novel in 30 days. A novel is seen as at least 50 000 words. Now, of course a decent fantasy novel is more like 100k words and more. So NaNoWriMo would be a perfect motivation to get a good start on the new novel.
‘Wait, what?’ I hear you say. ‘A new novel? Does that mean your first one is finished?’
Well, heh, no. My WIP 1 (“Work In Progress”), which doesn’t even have a title yet, is not finished. Not at all. I’ve been having difficulties continuing on it while thinking on the outline of the new one. As a matter of fact, I’ll probably set it aside for now, to pick up again once I gain more skill as a writer. It has many characters and 4 ARCs. My limited skills aren’t good enough to tell this story as it needs to be told. So I’ll write other things frist, and get back to it once I feel like I can.
And I will definitely get back to it, as I’ve got a masterplan in my head which will interconnect all of the next novels I’ll write. I’m not saying anymore on that because it’s useless at this point. I’m so excited to start writing the second novel though! It already has a (temporary) title: “Tear of the sky”. It’s awesome, at least in my head. I hope to be able to put down that awesomeness in words. I’ll keep you posted on the progress for sure.
As for November, I’d like to write a bunch of flash fiction beforehand. That way I can keep the blog posts going on a regular base. I’m already ahead a few chapters of Nadec, so I’m pleased with that.
That is it for now. There might be a short post before the beginning of NaNoWriMo, to check in with you all and let you know what to expect during that month. As for me, I’ll just continu staring into the void where all of the stories take place.
