Amazingly enough, I am coming to to the edge of the end of my manuscript. Even though it only has 56,000 words currently, I seem to be heading towards the great fight and wind down a little faster than I thought.
I had hoped that the first draft would be at least 70,000 words but I don’t know if I am going to get there. I know it is only 14,000 words, and at my pace will be about 2 weeks, but I had hoped for more.
Maybe I am not disappointed. I mean, I wrote another novel. Yea, it has holes and things that need to be fixed, but I did write it. I have another planned after this, and another after that.
I will be taking a month off of Dragon Masque so that I can let it rest before I dig back into it. I think I will start the second of the series immediately, and then jump back and forth between edits and writing.
So what do you do when end a story? Do you start with the next in the series or do you dive into edits?
