Welcome to this week’s special edition of Weekly plus a Day Writing Wrap-up. Yes, I am late posting this, solely because of yesterday is a Day I don’t Deal with. What day is that? Can’t tell you because that would be dealing with it. Because I didn’t post yesterday, I counted it as part of last week. So let’s dive in.

Why not start with what this week’s post title is called. A Good Start. Yes, I am referring to writing Pyre (Book 1) of the Forbidden Realm Trilogy. How many days did I write? Well, not as many days as I was writing when I finished draft 2 of Seeing Through the Veil, which basically every day. Last week, I wrote three days back to back. No, Monday wasn’t one of them. Why? Well, by the time I get home from work, and that includes a good workout, I am mentally tired. Plus, I need to write this post and that uses up any writing I have in me. Funny, that is also the reason why I didn’t write Friday, oh and I have a podcast I do with a friend. Non-Writing Related or I would be posting it here. So three days is a good start and will build on that.

So, three days is a good start and will build on that. I am still getting back into the swing of things. One the first two days was finishing up a chapter that was way longer then I thought, that was at the end of a section. Thursday was starting a new section so momentum changed as I had a different POV character. I almost wrote Saturday, but I decided to use my weekend for some fun stuff instead. Also, I saw Logan, so that was fun. I have already written today, and I already feel like I have a grasp on the section for this POV Character. The real challenge will be when I switch to another POV in two or three chapters. It will be good practice for later in the book when sections are split between two POV characters the come as needed.

Something I tried with draft 1 of Seeing Through the Veil was writing the two POV character sections separately. What I mean is I wrote all the sections for one POV character first and then went back to the beginning and wrote the others. Never doing that again for a first draft. Maybe in a second or third draft, but never in a first draft. I may try that when I am editing Pyre.

Moving on, I don’t have much progress on the Multiverse, as I spent my time writing. However, yesterday I finally sat down and worked on Long Live only to come to the conclusion that, that book takes place in the God’s Multiverse. Oh and I developed a little of one of the magic systems. Not much just a piece. I have a few ideas from that on how my God Multiverse will work. I plan on doing a little work on that this week, even if it is just writing down the ideas. Long Live will continue as my primary focus, and maybe the key to helping me crack the God Multiverse.

Beyond that, I got nothing. Wow, I didn’t mention that this week would be short and I actually got a short posting instead of saying it is going to be short and it turning out not to be. Oh well. Check back on Friday for the final post in our Military and Law Enforcement sub-series in our ongoing Worldbuilding series. The topic afterward I am playing around with is Magic, but I am not sure if it will be that. If I do, it will be Technology and Magic. That’s the other thing over the next two weeks I want to do is finally plan out the rest of the Worldbuilding series so I have an actual end date. I gotta see what I have left to cover.
