With under ten chapters left on my outline of this particular book I’ve come to a conclusion on how I want to present it. I debated before on one book or two; do I beef them both up or are the plots similar enough to  combine them and take an over all word count? I’ve decided to part 1 and part 2 it these particular books, which I suppose is now just one book in two halves.

Depending on how the next few months go I might even managed to finish it before the start of the year. It makes me wonder if six months is enough away time before I star going through and heavy reviewing the first half. I’m significantly more confident in the second half despite it having a lower word count.

My next plans after this are to take individual’s stories and do a full book from each perspective. Maybe half and half with two leads if the stories are intertwined. 

Oh a whim I decided to make a family tree of the Altret Clan (from the Sinca Saga) as far as I have planned out. I made it to 119 people in 4 generations (there are some rather prolific members of the family). I know I’ve missed some but it’s now way past my bedtime for a week night.

21000 words into book 2 of the Sinca Saga and I debate cutting the first 14 chapters and putting them at the end of book 1. 

Two reasons:

  1. Where as I know going back and editing to fill in detail will bulk up the first book, it’s word count is a bit lower than I want and it’s not as if these chapters won’t fit with the story.
  2. The main plot of the second book wouldn’t really come into play until the 14th/15th chapter- not that there isn’t subplot that’s important beforehand just that I worry there’s too much front fill of individual character story. 

Despite that, however, I feel like where I stopped book 1 has a sort of solid ending point. 

Theo made an excellent suggestion which was wait and see how book 2 ends, check the word count, and possibly put them together as a “Part A” & “Part B” of the same book. I feel like I have a lot more intense and drawn out plans for book two than I did for book one but I was also surprised at the low word count of book one, so that option is entirely viable considering where I’m already at with my outline for book two.

Happy National Voter Registration Day, Tumblr.

The number one way of celebrating it? Registering to vote.

Every year, millions of eligible Americans neglect to register, which means that millions of important voices are utterly silent on Election Day. Don’t be one of them. There’s basically a 100% chance that something you care about is on the ballot, something you don’t want to be quiet about.

So be one of the loud ones. Register already. It’s an easy form that you already know all the answers to. No excuses.

You can do it!
