Demon of Words XII - April 2014

Yesterday wasn't the greatest of writing days, though I was doing research so it balanced out. Today, was different. I think my muse must have been snorting the icing sugar again (save whatever sanity you have and don't ask).

Today's word count: 4,070

Total word count for Camp NaNo: 27,220

thoughts on my books... II

Book V is coming along well.  As I mentioned on twitter Jules has recevied a large ornate box, at first I had said it was wooden. It appears it is not, it's metal though it is still ornate.

It now appears (thanks to last night's dream) that Jules will receive 3 items. Each one is a representation of the Holy Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Not only do these items affect Jules in some way (physical and/or psychological), they will also affect others in The Community.  Whether directly or indirectly remains to be seen.  Think of it as a ripple effect, when you throw a stone into water the first splash is the most explosive (or so it seems). Though in actual fact some of the ripples that come from that can be more explosive.

At the moment, I am just writing away and seeing what happens.  Though I am tempted to remove this bit from Book V and put it into a book of it's own. I will see when the time comes. 

Stepping away from Jules for a moment. Something, something has happened to Tarquin...  Not saying anything more than that but it's definitely an interesting twist for him.

Demon of Words XI - April 2014

Today's word count: 700

Total word count for Camp NaNo: 22,897

Not a massive word count today but what I did get written (in my favourite cafĂ©) was worth writing.  I got a lot of books for research today from the local faith mission bookstore. I spent several hours looking through them and making notes and placing said notes into my Bible. Also lots of markers in said books already. So although word count wasn't that much, still had a productive day.

Demon of Words IX - April 2014

Today's word count: 2,200

Total word count for Camp NaNo: 19,930

At the moment, Jules hates me. I forced him to go somewhere he was trying to avoid.  A new character has been introduced a young girl.

In Book IV, I have mentioned the girl. An interaction with Jules and her father, her name was only mentioned once in passing. I had forgotten about it until I wrote that bit today (Book V).

New character introduced and he's on the wrong side of crazy, unstable, dangerous yet he's important.
