It was a good week last week. With the exception of Thursday, I managed to reach my target of 500 words every week day. It meant I completed a whole chapter in a week, which makes for better reading as that is purely what I focussed on.
I am really happy with how the book is progressing. My writing is stronger and I am enjoying exploring the characters. All of their stories are strong at this stage and so I think the reader will enjoy the pace of the book as well.
The only small concern I have is I know I need to introduce a new POV. All aspects of the story are covered except for one area. I was hoping to get away with using a wandering character to uncover what a certain Warlord was up to, but whilst this mystery is good, I fear the drip feed of information is too slow and too restricted given the magnitude of the character involved.
The question I now have is who do I use for this POV? I think I know, but I need to do a lot of thinking around their back-story. This needs to be done in the background to my time I spend writing so as to not affect my output.
Anyway, since none of you have read book one yet, all of the above must comes across as rather vague.
