Well, you people on social media might have noticed, if you were paying attention, that I crossed the 10,000 word mark on the sequel to The Clockwork Giant.
And… I have a title. Releasing this December, the next book in the Chroniker City series is…
The Chroniker Legacy
I originally wanted to hold onto that title until the third book, but I think it’s going to fit better with the second book, especially since I couldn’t think of any other titles, not good ones anyway.
I’m more excited about this story that I was when I first started writing The Clockwork Giant, which is saying something, because I was girlishly giddy in the early stages of writing the first book. In the sequel, we’ll get to see a different side of the city and of the University. Petra will be more involved socially, a new cast of characters joins the story, and there will be plenty of action for the manly men among my readers (I honestly had a friend tell me the book needed more explosions *shakes head*). I hope that in this book, you get to see another side of Petra as well. I wish I could say more, but I don’t want to spoil the first book for anyone.
I’m just glad that I finally found the right place to start the story. So far, it’s been flowing really well, each scene transitioning nicely into the next. But before this week, I was so lost that I probably would have made more progress planting my face on the keyboard and rolling around for a few minutes. I’m glad that I stuck with it and didn’t settle with a good enough beginning. The moment I settle for good enough, someone should slap me.
Anyway, I hope to get another block of writing done today… after a nap. The new dosage of my daily meds has sapped my energy, which is why my blog posts this week have all been posted after eleven o’clock. And I haven’t been keeping up with my exercise either. Too tired and apathetic to do crunches at seven in the morning.
In other news, next week, I start watching my goddaughter while her mother goes back to nursing school. Taking care of her will probably cut into my writing time quite a bit, but only two days of the week will be really time-consuming. The rest of the week, I’ll only be watching her a few hours a day.
That’s all for today. I hope you all have a great Friday the 13th and subsequent weekend. Peace out.
