Or… half a draft.

The White Raven: Morrigan’s Wrath
(The White Raven Duology, Book 2)

50256 / 90000 (55.84%)

Half a draft, and spring break starts next week. Which means that I need to count up how many days are left in school and figure out what my daily target needs to be to have this done by May 19th.

That’s 74 days (thank you, Google.)

40K words divided by 74 days… actually, call it 65 days because there’s ICFA in there, and there will be days where words just don’t happen, or at least not as many words as I’d like.

That puts me at (pulls out calculator) roughly 620 words a day to finish this on time.

That’s very doable. It does, however, mean putting The Sea Prince back on hold. But I’ve already done that because I noticed something — when I first drafted out this synopsis, I did some very sketchy worldbuilding, just to get the idea of the place. I never went back and filled it out. So in and around finishing Morrigan’s Wrath, I’m going to fill in the worldbuilding for The Sea Prince. I’ve already drawn a map and started sketching out a history and discovered things I didn’t know were in my brain. (I hate it when I don’t tell myself all details…) So The Sea Prince is on hiatus, possibly until the fall. Or it will become the next Patreon project, and I’ll post the worldbuilding as it comes together. I need to decide.

I am very much looking forward to ICFA next week. I’ve gone through the schedule and marked which panels I want to see, and I have my volunteer schedule. I’ll be at Registration for the conference opening Wednesday afternoon, and on Thursday and Friday mornings. If you’re going to be at the conference, say hi!

The Chronicles of John Zebedee releases tomorrow (and is currently on sale at Smashwords!) No one seems to be price matching the preorder, so you can grab it for 25% off at Smashwords only. Once the book goes live, the other venues should price match.

Time to get back to making words! Talk to you all next week!
