Writing in Public: Day 10, Month 6

Well, the day’s writing wound up getting interrupted in a few different ways, so I didn’t get to start “False Seer” like I had wanted to. I did, however, finish the second draft of “Fire with Fire.” It is coming in at around 8,000 words, and I’m thinking of expanding it and making it my entry to the Writers of the Future this quarter. There are some complications arising in the story telling. Good complications to the plot, that is. But, we’ll see. I’ll be brainstorming that a bit tomorrow while I decide my next move.

In the meantime, the rough draft of “False Seer” will begin tomorrow morning, and that should be the bulk of the day’s work. I also have a flash fiction idea that I am tossing around, one that would tie in to the novella “You Are My Brothers” from the perspective of one of the female knights before the events of the novella.
