October’s cumulative word count is 29,953. I like to think a lot of that was written on The Last Assassin, but I’m honestly not sure. Approximately 7,300 was written on short stories.
I’ve prepped for NaNoWriMo, deciding on what I want my bullet journal word count tracker to look like for the month, doing a little bit more worldbuilding, working on The Last Assassin, stuff like that.
On top of my more pressing writing with The Dark War Trilogy, I’ve also come up with ideas for a couple of short stories to connect to it as well as two new worlds, one of which I’m fairly consistently thinking about and working on developing. I think it’s going to be really cool when it’s done, and I’m glad it’s being subtle enough to not get in the way of TDWT, lol.
I’ve actually kind of done a lot of reading this month compared to most. I finished Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock and The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, and I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick. I’m also in the midst of Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson, and The Darkling Child by Terry Brooks.
Because this has been really long in the past, I’ve decided to leave out the character interviews and weekly updates this month.
