You may or (more likely) may not have noticed I haven’t written any of my own posts in the past two weeks.
It’s supposed to be week three of Camp NaNoWriMo, but I’d say I’m official down and out for the count. This past week – yes, an entire week – I’ve been in bed, unable to function, with migraines day in and day out. I’m booked to see the doctor on Monday, but meds have been ineffective, and thus, I have been getting absolutely nothing done.
University semester 2 also started this week, so I’ve been prepping for that. I’ve already missed a class, thanks to these migraines, and I’m not a happy camper.
Before these, however, I made all kinds of progress on Demon’s Run, my WIP for Camp NaNo. There’s been all kinds of plot development and planning going on – including the creation of character profiles for my leads Alessandra and Keirran.
Most significant, perhaps, is in Keirran’s development; I realized he has an entire story of his own to be told. I debated a while, whether I wanted to write a separate short story for him, or maybe give him his own spin-off series, but ultimately concluded the Demon’s Run is not, in fact, just Alessandra’s story. Demon’s Run is now a 2POV story, so I’ve been studying up on writing from two points of view, on writing from the male point of view (which I haven’t actually done before), and on some relevant mythology that I won’t divulge details on at this time.
In case you didn’t see, I began making my first aesthetic spreads for Demon’s Run. I’ve never done those before either, but I plan to keep producing more of them. You can follow these on my Pinterest.
That’s all for this week. I’ve officially had two migraine-free days, so I’m hoping really hard I’m good to go.
