Day 5 of 9: Taking a Moment to Think

Writing doesn’t just happen while you’re typing or scribbling down words. In the haze of waking, I thought about my book this morning and what it needed and came up with some ideas.

untitledVolume two of House of Cabal poses a lot of questions. While it’s still early on in the series, it needs to offer up a few more answers to be satisfying. I figured out what some of those revelations should be. These early answers will hopefully set up a better payoff for volume three.

Taking a moment to think about what you need to accomplish can be a huge help to preventing you from spinning your wheels when you get absorbed by the words and sentences. It’s amazing how much you can write without taking a moment to take in the bigger picture.

Current draft status: The first five chapters are mostly finished, chapter six is now in okay shape, and I’ve rearranged some events in chapter eight and nine.
