I haven’t written much here, lately. I’ve been too busy getting Highway to Tartarus published, and writing on Resurgent. But, now that the big push for Tartarus is finished, I’m going to get back to writing a bit.
I am about 4/5 (37,500 out of a planned 50,000 words) of the way finished with the first draft of Resurgent, and I find myself rethinking the title. I’m considering adding to it a bit: either Pendragon Resurgent or Camelot Resurgent. I haven’t made up my mind, yet. I’m open to suggestions…
After I finish writing Resurgent, I’m planning on writing a children’s book for the daughter of a dear friend. I’ve had indications of interest in that from people other than the little girl in question, so I’ll probably publish it, too. It will be a chapter book, but shouldn’t be beyond a child’s ability to read it.
After that, I’ll pick Resurgent back up, and do up a second draft, probably adding about ten thousand words or more, since I haven’t done many descriptions. All I’ve been focused on is getting the plot.
I’ve noted that the Modern Gods series (The Godshead, Highway to Tartarus) haven’t been nearly as well-read as my Legends (The Last Pendragon, Resurgent) books. I’m wondering if it’s because the format of a novel told in short stories is putting people off, or if it’s because so few people know classic mythology…either way, I’m not going to stop writing them, I’m just going to refocus to other things unless and until interest picks up.
Because, yes, I write the things I want to read, but I’d also like to eventually be able to make a living off of it.
