I’ve written a little for my book after writing a section of my outline. I’m now finishing the outline completely before continuing with the writing of the actual novel.
Outline Word count: 6,611 (Yes, I go crazy on outlines)
Total word count: 20,893 (which is exciting because for my first outline I’m writing very basically - like shortening descriptions, as I’ll be adding more detail on the next draft)
I’m currently working very hard to make the feeling of the book less like “Oh! those guys are the BAD guys,” and more like “perhaps there is no distinctive BAD and corrupt side of the fight, like both sides have their opinions, their up’s and down’s, and either side could be equal good as bad,”
No bad side, but some bad people ;’)
