6/29: 458 words. I’ve written over 5,000 words of the new novel about insidious fairies, and I still don’t know where it’s going. It reminds me very much of how Seeking Sanctuary went, when I couldn’t figure out my antagonist for a long time.

I spent some time this morning creating the beginnings of the outline for this novel. At the very least, I (think I) know how the first six chapters will go. Beyond that, we’ll just have to see.

I don’t know how “panters” or “discovery writers” write this way. For me it creates too much anxiety not knowing which direction things are headed.

Don't miss anything about projects I'm working on, new books you should be looking for, and articles about the craft and business of writing. I'll also give you the first three chapters of my novel, Vulcan Rising.
