I’ll begin with the fiction writing, which this morning started like a frozen engine with a dead battery. I ended up tinkering with a few worldbuilding questions, looking around in the MC’s newly discovered home library, and reading back through a couple of past chapters to figure out why the fact that Tori’s wandering around in her grandmother’s library full of unreadable books — Grandma was apparently capable of reading languages Granddaughter can’t even identify — mattered today.
When I got the answer to that question, it was still an uphill push, but at least I got to the end of the current chapter, and finished with 1610 words of new fiction I really like.
And a good question to start tomorrow’s chapter.
Discounted How to Write a Novel class
Next, a quick reminder on my How to Write a Novel class, which is available with the Splinters Discount for just 10 more days. (The discount ends on June 30th at 11:59 PM ET).
The complete class is finished except for the BIG bonus, Interweaving Multiple Story Threads in Big, Complex Novels, which is bigger than I thought it would, and which I’m still putting together today.
The class goes off sale at the same date and time that the discount ends — June 30th, 2019, 11:59 PM ET.
When I make it available again, which I’ll do later this year for about a week, it will be in Finished First-Draft with Splinters, and the price will be over 20% higher than the current price. I haven’t settled on that price yet. I’m currently still finishing the Big Bonus, and am contemplating adding one other thing suggested by current students to the class. Everyone already in class gets all in-version upgrades and additions for free.
Folks who buy later pay a more to cover the cost of my continuing to update and improve the class.
Finally, redrawing for the final Ko-Fi winner tomorrow
I’m drawing from my list of Ko-Fi supporters tomorrow morning at 10 AM ET for the last signed special-edition print copy of Create A Character Clinic.
I’ll let the winner know first, then announce the winner here and on my Ko-Fi blog.
If tomorrow’s winner decides to decline the prize, it will sit around until some future grab bag drawing, so I can get the other four packaged and mailed out.
