Progress in Work (Scion of Wornten)

After two months of prep — world building, character sketching, and outline writing — I began work on my YA novel Wednesday of last week.

Two months is a little misleading.  I wrote a novella containing most of the novel’s core ideas before Christmas, but the real work has taken place since Jan.

Since Wednesday, I have pounded out about 15k words.  The work progresses smoothly, because it is all planned.  I envisioned these chapters well in advance of typing them up, and that seems to make a huge difference both in my ability to immerse myself in the work, and in quickly moving from one important scene to the next.

Now I merely have to push through to the end.
