Welcome to this week’s Weekly Writing Wrap-up, it has been a long week. I didn’t work that much this week, yet I am tired. My coffee doesn’t seem to be working. That could be due to me only having a little of it so far. This busy week comes with many things, so let’s dive right into them.

Let’s start off the disappointment of the week. I got nothing done on Seeing Through the Veil. Nothing. Didn’t even look at it. Not sure why, or how that happened. I had time. Yet I didn’t. My guess is that playing catch up on Pyre (Book 1 in Forbidden Realm Trilogy) prevented that. It is NaNoWriMo for two more days (not counting today). I realized that I hadn’t touched Veil around Friday and I knew I wasn’t going to get to it. I am going to make time to work on it this week. After Wednesday, I will be able to dedicate time to it.

Speaking of NaNoWriMo, that is what I spent my week working on. I am behind by about four thousand words. It’s less than that, but I decided to round up because looking at the number of 46,666 I need to be at today, and where I am. I feel it is closer to 4k than not. I could be wrong, with my coffee not kicking in, my desire to know the actual number of words I need isn’t really there. There something fun about writing the first draft where your Magic Systems are up front from the start. Most of my series are like this, but Seeing Through the Veil isn’t one of them. It will be eventually, at the same time there is a difference. The best part is figuring out how the magic will be used. I know how it will be used, but that is after the characters are powerful. I am not there yet. These characters have limits how to look at it from when they will drain or used up all their magic power supply.

For my Life magic system, I seem to be drawing more from Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn at the moment. Since the characters aren’t strong enough or powerful enough to use the energy beyond their bodies. So, I rely on how to make their stats like speed, strength, etc change. Not just that, but since I am dealing with alien races as well, how could an alien race with a specific ability of their race be affected by using life. It’s fun. When this book is finished, I will have to go over what I came up with and streamline how all the magic systems work. Especially together. Of the seven in the series, only three are showcased in book 1.

With National Novel Writing Month wrapping up on Wednesday, I am going to try to get done by tomorrow. Not sure if I will, but I am going to try. It will all depend on how much I wake up in the next few hours. Once I am done with NaNo, I will be spending more time on Seeing Through the Veil. I will continue to write Pyre as I am only in section two, but I will spend less time trying to play catch up to hit a specific word count goal by a certain date. Also, the faster I get through the edits on the veil the more time I will have for Pyre.

That leads me to The Gathering. Nothing new has come up since last week. Mostly because I am at a point in the development trying to do it at work isn’t going to work anymore. I will need to sit down and toss all of my idea on paper and start examining them. I could do this at work, but well it’s work and not working is frowned upon. I am not sure when I will sit down and start to develop further on The Gathering, but it will probably be after I am done with Veil or when I have taken a huge chunk out of the editing on the veil. Or, tomorrow because I am hit with an idea that I just need to get down.

Finally, I have continued to expand the events of the multiverse. What’s the Multiverse? Well boys and girls, according to many scientists, it is possible our universe isn’t the only universe out there. Under the many-worlds theory, in one world, you are Batman. Okay, enough with that. The multiverse is where all my stories take place in. There events behind the scenes of all my stories that come together in a much larger story. I have been slowly mapping out events. I wrote a huge chunk on Friday. Surprisingly, I found a character who was a good guy who actually is a villain. Now I am finding I like the idea of multiple villains. Think of this way, you have one character who is THE VILLAIN, the comes along another guy is a villain and same thing happens again so you have three villains. Twist, one of the villains turns out to be THE VILLAIN instead of the first villain who it was believed. Not sure if that will happen, I am still developing but it would be fun to do.

It seems like I am doing these developments every few weeks. You know, after the brain has had some time to meld on what has already come before it and figure out where it is going. Time will tell how this is going to turn out.

That’s all for this week. Checkback on Thursday for a wrap-up of NaNoWriMo, and my thoughts and experience of it. Friday we are on a new sub-series in our on going Worldbuilding Series. Governments, yeah fun topic, especially what is going on right now. Check back next week to see how everything going writing wise. Until then keep writing. For those who are participating in NaNoWriMo, you’re almost there. Keep it up.
