Today’s Word Count: 1025 words
So this was my first day working on my Trans Harry Potter/Bruce Wayne fic that I have rebooted like six million times called ‘Chain Reaction’, which is the first story in the Criss Cross Series. It took me a while to get the hang of things. It was a bit of slog, I was trying to find the right words to say, trying to get that first page to be a good hook for my readers.
Although, it was a struggle it was worth it in the end because I’m really satisfied with my first 1k of this fic. I was also surprised how much better my writing with this fic is then when I started on FSOBE which was my first fic in like two or three years ago. It is really loads better, and for someone who touted to everyone and their mama that I was unable to write it diffidently something to be proud of.
Truth be told, I was going to skip this writing session because I wanted to work on the cover art for Chain Reaction. Art continues to be my first love. So it’s hard to pry myself away from art, especially when already started on a piece. But it was nap time, and this is my usual set writing time. I really don’t want to mess up my hard-won writing routine. It has made more productive on the writing front than I know what to do with.
As for balancing art and my writing that is going to really hard. but I’m willing to sacrifice to contribute to my passions of art and writing.
As for ‘Chain Reaction” I have a general outline of all the plot points I want to hit, notes on character’s personalities in such in my one note. I have Scrivener, but I can work much more easily with my Google Docs and My Onenote. And unlike Scrivener, both are accessible to any device and is backup to a cloud.
Anyway, “Chain Reaction’ much FSOBE is going to be longer in the second draft. I’m thinking it’s going to be 25k in the end, but we shall see. My end word counts predictions almost never pan out.
Well, that’s all I got to say for today. So as promised here is my excerpt (remember this is an unedited draft ya’ll) of ‘Chain Reaction’.
