Last night, with that 12th novel done, my mind was finally clear to begin planning for Birch Blackguards. I mapped out the first 15 days / 15 chapters of the novel. I need to do some mapping since I am going to be in the actual locations on the days in question. So I need to plan my schedule smile.

What did you guys write today?

Last night I finished mapping out the timeline for my second murder mystery, Birch Blackguards. I will be writing it day-by-day in Aug. Usually I don't map out books like this but since I will need to be in certain locations on certain days, I need some sort of a schedule for this smile.

What writing have you been doing?

The night before last, even though I have two medieval novels pending plus a modern murder mystery about to begin, I was drawn to work on my near-future-bleak-fantasy novel that I started a year or so ago. I hoped by working on it that I'd get that out of my system before I began my chapter-a-day murder mystery on August 1.

So then LAST night it was even stranger. I felt strongly called to work on my sci-fi-space-fantasy, one I'd been working on since probably 1990 and which I hadn't touched in over a year. I have 38,000 words done on it and "know" the whole story in my head but haven't ever written it all out. For some reason I really want to work on that right now.

Have you had that happen, where you "should" work on one project but you crave working on another?

Oh yes! I'll be working on one article, and it completely doesn't "vibe" with me, so I'll switch to another topic and stick that one on the backburner.

Michelle -

That sounds like a good idea. That way you always have ideas waiting in the wings smile.

My sci-fi space fantasy is now at 180 pages, 47k words.

New plan, maybe I can finish this off before August 1st. Then I can clear my head and be fully focused for the murder mystery novel. I think I have about five chapters left to write out. I should be able to do a chapter a day - that's traditional NaNoWriMo speed.

LOL ok this is getting worse. Now my sci-fi-space story has 191 pages / 51k words but has 6 chapters left to go. It's expanding as I write.

My sci-fi space story is at 218 pages / 61k words, with four chapters left to go (it expands as I write). I have five days left to finish, before I'm scheduled to begin that murder mystery. I know I can do this smile.

What are you working on?

Up to 240 pages / 69k words on the space story. Estimate 3 chapters left. That gives me one a night to be ready for August 1st. Tight. What are you writing today?

My sci-fi space story is now complete, at 264 pages, 77k words. So I'm free and clear to start my murder mystery story, a chapter a day, for the month of August.
