Novel #2 Progress: All Done!


I’m a little early with this update, but I am beyond excited to report that after five months of relentless work, revisions on Novel #2 are complete!

Word Count Progress:

Draft #1 Word Count:

  • Start Word Count: 67,994
  • End Word Count: 75,808
  • Total: 7,814

Draft #2 Revised Word Count:

  • Start Word Count: 70,551
  • End Word Count: 79,002
  • Total: 8,451

Writing Process Notes:

  • A week off from my day job certainly did the trick. With nothing else to worry about during the day, I had the freedom and the time to write!
  • I ended up finishing three days ahead of schedule, which goes to show how much determination and motivation can really push a writer to keep going.

The Title:

Back in January, I stated that I would reveal the title of Novel #2 when I finished revisions. I’m keeping that promise, but with a twist. Ever since the beginning, I’ve had a working title, but I’ve never been dead set on keeping it in place. So, instead of one title, I’m offering up four! One is my working title and the other three are on my brainstorm list. Which title jumps out at you?

  1. C. B., you are the Energizer Bunny of my writing pals! I’m on vacation this week, so I’m hoping to add some mileage to my word count. And I, too, will wait for another round of titles from you, if you don’t choose one from these four.


  2. You rock, C.B.! Of the four possible titles – the one that is the most open to what lies ahead without giving anything away is Lineage, IMHO. And as you are planning a sequel, it gives an automatic lead in to the next book.
