Effulgent Corruption Day 1 - Editing

on Thursday, January 6, 2011
I've started Effulgent Corruption again, for reals this time. I scrapped everything except the prologue, which I have edited today. I also have a few more distinct ideas for the novel, which have only resulted in making it much more complicated. This novel's going to either be awesome or completely awful. This should be interesting.

Anyway, today I planned the next portion, which was the part that made Jason sick so that he almost quit. Sorry? It happens. My current writing goal is going to be between 1-2k a session, possibly more if I figure stuff out. I'm also going to try to write twice a day: once in the morning, and once in the evening. That has been a great way of bumping word counts without burning out completely.

So that's the plan. Goal to get off the xbox/gamecube enough to write. If I can pound out 4k a day in two chunks, I should be able to get this book done in 50 days (I'm estimating it'll be long, like 200k, though I'm going to try REALLY hard to keep stuff moving at a rapid pace).

If I get this entire book done before February ends, I get a present. I don't know what that present is yet, but I'll figure it out. Though, considering I'm rusty, I have a hunch I'll probably finish Mid-March. This also depends greatly on if I find a job.

Anyway! Expect updates as they come!

Awesome or completely awful--I feel that way often.

50 days? You are a sick man. Sicker than Jason, even. ;)

Let me know how the split word count works out. Maybe I can discipline myself to do that same.
