Tonight I wrote a lot more than I thought I would. I hit 60,000 words! It’s coming along and I love every moment of it.
I realized that I needed some time to pass. Earlier in the story, three months passed between chapters. I needed to show my MCs at a later time after they got to the Iridescent Caverns to show how their lives had changed. But then I realized that this threw off my original calendar for my timeline of events. I need something that will happen soon to happen in the spring, and that time had passed. So, in order for everything to line up correctly, I needed to have a nine-month time gap, meaning this story has taken a little over a year to tell so far. And I think it works out well.
I can show my MCs older, now Jassa is fourteen and Rike is thirteen. I can show them with much more training and skill, and established their abilities a little more before we head into the climax. Overall I think it was a good choice.
Current word count for Mistcraft: 60,686/50,000!
Until we give thanks,
