Wordcount Wednesday + Black Friday Sale!!!!!
Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again! Where did the year go? I feel like we still ought to be back in May somewhere.
This week’s word out in perilous tower is 17,131 – which means I added about 2,553 words this week, but that’s not really what you want to hear about, is it? You wan to know about the sale…
I’m going to try to get Shadowsong up for FREE on Amazon, Black Friday through Cyber Monday! You heard right, my baby will be free this weekend. I was going to put it up on Thanksgiving, but just my luck, that is the day my unlimited subscription expires, and though I have it up for auto renewal, It won’t be rolling over quickly enough. But it will be up Black Friday! So, I will be ever so appreciative if you would grab a copy. And please, tell your friends too!

Thanks everyone, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I am back in the writing zone this week! After struggling mightily to get anything onto paper for the past several weeks, the past several days have just been pouring words. Perilous Tower got 3,588 words added to it, making a total of 14,578, and one of my antagonists, who has been causing me no end of frustration since I started writing him, is finally opening up.
This character has been confusing and somewhat erratic since the day he stepped onto the pages back in book one. A couple of days ago, I was writing a scene between him and another character – from the other’s POV – and it wasn’t really working. Suddenly the dam burst and the words flowed out – from my antagonist’s POV. It worked! Now I finally understand why he has been acting the way he has, though this does mean I’m going to have to go back and do some more re-writes on book one to add this information in.
In other news this week, I managed to also add 904 words to a novelette I am currently re-writing. The book was originally written about a decade ago, and i’ve been having the strong urge to go back and start updating it to more my current writing style. Maybe someday it will see print too. I also managed 950 words in what may eventually become a spinoff to the fairytale series.
Thank God I didn’t sign up for NaNoWriMo this month. I’ve never been a fast writer, but this had been one of the slowest writing months I have had since I started writing in earnest. I’ve only managed to write in Perilous Tower three or four times a week. In the past two weeks I have managed to add 3,210 words to Perilous Tower, bringing the grand total up to 10,990.
On another note, I did manage to write about 400 words in what might one day become a spinoff novel from this series.
