I am super proud of myself – this week I actually finished editing and organizing my notes on Faeriia from my NaNoWriMo blob! When I first started this process of consolidation, I said that I was falling in love with this setting all over again. This is still so true; this setting has a history and characters that are very alive in my mind. Of course it helps that several stories I’ve come up with over the years have all found a home in Faeriia. I may abandon my goal for this year to edit my NaNoWriMo 2012 book in favour of either editing the NaNoWriMo 2011 novel (which is now set in Faeriia) or of writing something totally different (again set in Faeriia).
The final Google document is 24 pages long now. Remember the comparison? Imezza is 9 and City of the Dead is 8. That also makes me want to work on Imezza again, fleshing the setting’s history out a little more (although that’s not super necessary; if I write some stuff in the setting, I’m sure it will slowly flesh itself out).
Oh yeah, thinking about goals, finishing this small editing project means that I have officially finished one of my goals for 2016! Goal #9 was to take apart my NaNoWriMo blob, and finishing up with Faeriia means I did just that! This took me a little bit longer to accomplish than I thought it would, but it is done! I guess it’s another reason to be proud of my week. 😀
While I think I’m on track to finish a few other goals, it’s unfortunately the only one I’ve accomplished to date. I haven’t worked on Tears of the King since early May, so it’s time to get back to that.
