Starting the Third Draft of Lust Today
Hey everyone so today starts the first official (for the third time no less) the third draft of Lust in my Favor of Ares series. The goal is to write at least 600 words a day for the next 140 days. Each 600 words will be the minimum for the beginning, middle, and end parts of a chapter. This means every chapter will be at least 1,800 words. I’m planning on having 40 chapters so I’m looking at a novel of 72,000 words. This word count qualifies each novel for industry standards.
Essentially that means it will take me three days to write a chapter. During those three days I will be working on that particular character’s bio, character design, and arc especially for act one of the book.
Obviously if I feel I can write more than the minimum then I will. The minimum is set so that Lust will be finished by November 18th. My maximum goal is to write 1,800 words a chapter a day which would be 40 days. However, I have to account time for other projects like my screenplay, art, design, clients, and life. This minimum goal is great because I can also start focusing on the other novel series. I’m planning on starting graduate school for creative writing so managing time is going to be crucial.
So stay tune for part one of Chapter one of Lust (Favor of Ares 1).
