Daily Challenge Check-in: July 1, 2015

Words/Time: 1 hour & 22 minutes, revising “Pithea” for half and “Outcast” for the other half. “Outcast” is one I have been wanting to work on for a while, but it’s taken a backseat ever since I started work on “Pithea” in 2013. “Pithea” is technically the first book that would need to come out, but “Outcast” is one I wrote 7 years ago as fanfiction, but will need much less rewriting to adapt it to my new story world than anything else I’d written. I don’t have any kind of introduction for it worked up yet, but let me just say that it’s my favorite of anything I’ve ever written. My biggest issue with the adapting so far is how to bring the narrator’s voice into it. I’m not sure if I can do that without forcing it too much.

Camp NaNoWriMo started today, and my goal is to work for around an hour per day, average, throughout the month of July. Because I’ve been anxious to start redoing “Outcast,” I do plan to split that time between that story and “Pithea.” However, I’ll put “Outcast” on the back burner if I need to; we’ll see how it goes.
