One Down, forty four to go

Finally, after cursing and stomping my feet and countless tantrums from my brain, I finished the first draft of Fiery Magic. I do feel accomplished right now.

The rewrite of Soul of Magic is going on. I hope I can get it finished this month. Fingers crossed.

I started a new WIP and a new fanfic. The fanfic is obviously Shadow and Bone, but I’m excited about the new WIP. I hope I’m able to do justice to my idea.

Finishing Fiery hasn’t reduced the number of my WIPs at all since I started a new one. So, still 44 remaining. I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish all these in this life time.

SPFBO starts next week, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Deathless Ones.

The lockdown is still continuing and my insomnia is worse than ever. I have to get up early tomorrow to get my second dose Covid vaccine too.

Why even life

More lockdowns and writings

The lockdown in our State is continuing, and we had triple lockdown in our district the last one week. The good part? Gave me time to write. I wrote 15k words in this one week, and I am rather proud of the effort.

Fiery Magic wasn’t moving forward, so I tried something new. I plotted. Yes. I did. I know. The world hasn’t ended. But it did rain heavily here for a few days. Anyway, it has helped. It is now moving forward, and I’m hopeful of finishing it by Monday at least.

I also started rewriting Soul of Magic. Yet to look at all the beta feedback to be honest, but I remember most of them saying this could be larger. Well, guess what? It is larger. Looks like my cute little novella is going to be a cute little novel.

I am also planning to take a second look at Colliding Forces. I hope that one doesn’t grow into a novel too. Or Bleeding Gold. Or WIzard’s Debt.

My sleep schedule has been thrown all out of whack during this lockdown even if I have work on some days. I have been getting up almost at afternoon, and unable to fall asleep in time during the night. Hopefully. I will be able to get things back to normal before the lockdown ends on the 30th.

In the meantime, there’s all the writing.
