Keepers Week 7

This was a rough week writing wise. I had a lot of plans for last weekend and they were all swallowed up by a terrible cold which eventually led to me taking a day off work. I rarely miss work due to colds so for me to take a day is an indicator of my near death experience.

I did make my word count goal every night for Keepers but did not make it on getting any new zombie stories done. Hopefully, Sunday I can get at least one new one done. I would like to have 5 or 6 new ones by next week. Sometimes I set ambitious goals so we shall have to wait and see.

I will reach the 50,000 word mark on Keepers today. At some point this week I will cross over the 55,000 word mark. This is a significant moment for me because that is the amount of words I accomplished on over a year’s worth of work on my abandoned steam punk novel. I will have written the same amount in less than two months. Again reaffirming my decision to cut ties and move on.

The story is rolling and I have hit a good plot point which will set the tone for the last half of the book. One of the characters I was struggling with has become a little more concrete and easier to write. Plus, a character I had assumed was going to be the bad guy has suddenly turned into a shade of grey guy. This has made the character more important to the story and a whole lot more fun to write. I love when this happens.

On the self publishing front of my first novel a slight snag has been hit. The person who I thought I was going to be using as a cover artist is not going to work out. I have been forced to punt. I received some recommendations from friends and will get in touch with them now. Hopefully, this won’t set me too far back. I really wish I could draw right now. I am still shooting for April and my lovely readers will, of course, be the first to know.
