I’ve managed to keep my schedule of posting new material every Sunday for my novel-in-progress thus far. The latest bit went live yesterday and is titled, Prologue: Eternity.
The novel so far is located here.
As the title suggests, I went back and did a little preface. I figure that since I’m sharing a story pretty much as I write it, then if I’m going to write such a thing in such a way I should get any introductory bits out of the way early in the game.
I’ve noticed that I’m developing a tendency to work backwards a bit, editing and correcting things as I go along. While it has been working so far it is early days yet and I think this could be a dangerous thing, when the story is longer, and could stall my first draft progress. So in the future I’m going to make notes somewhere about things I need to correct once I’m done. I’ve fallen into that trap before with other projects and avoiding said trap is one object of this pantsing experiment.
I plan on writing a final section to wrap up Chapter One for next time. While I’m doing that I hope to finalize in my own mind where I want to go with this for the first quarter of the story.
