A Little World Building

Just a quick update in WIP-land.

This afternoon I sat down with full intentions to write. Right now I'm drafting a novel called Sovereignty, as you might or might know from the bottom of my posts. The other day, as you probably also know if you've been keeping up with this blog, I was going through old story ideas to hopefully find some jewels.

Well, I did. And I managed to string together said jewels to make a necklace. In plain english: I have my next story mapped out.

I'm a pantser, but that doesn't mean I don't plan sometimes. I detest plotting when it must be done. My weakness IS plotting, generally. But I think I have something special here, and I'm so excited about it. Thus, I was excited to do some work on it today and start answering those questions now instead of later, when all I'll want to do is write it.

All that to say, I ended up spending this afternoon world building for my new novel. The one I'll write just as soon as I'm done with Sovereignty.

So, for the comments, do you ever multitask? How many novels have you worked on at a time? Perhaps some are in your head?

I think I might go practice my guitar now. I'm learning a new song. I'll just go ahead and put this in-the-process-of-being-learned-song on my Music Pick for today.

Until next time!

Best Part of Today: Getting some super good plot work done.
Currently Craving: Ice cream. In the WORST way.
Music Pick: "Everybody" by Ingrid Michaelson (lovely song on guitar, truly)
WATM: Sovereignty (drafting)

I *wish* I could write more than one novel at a time! I'll admit that I've never actually tried it, but there's no way I could do it.

Good luck!


I've only tried it once, and it didn't go very well. Technically I'm not writing two novels, since I'm only plotting for one and writing the other. But thank you. :) And thanks for reading.


Do I multitask? Do you have a solution so that I can stop? I can't even remember the last time I haven't had more than one project on the go at the same time. Except for NaNo, when I really can't focus on more than one thing, I tend to have at least two things going that I'll flip back and forth between. I'm almost always trying to focus on one, but there are always times when I just have to work on the other one instead.

I think the most I've ever been working on at once is...4? 5? I don't know. It's hard to tell. I've managed to force myself into being a lot more focused since then, but it's hard. XD


Seeing this makes me want to go work on CotL real bad! *sigh* I have to wait on sitting down to play with it until I leave Galveston. But I can still think about it! *dreamy look*

I agree about the plotting/pantsing. That is so me(TM :D).

And you practicing guitar makes me want to work on my Penn whistle. Which I also have to wait on, for the sake of my family's ears. xP


@Andre You're awesome. And that's quite a skill. Yet at the same time it sounds counter-productive. *likes you all the same*

@Twin Aw, I'm sorry! I understand. And of course it's you! If you blogged today that would be your TM of the day. XD And LOL! I'm sure you're not THAT bad. :P
