So, a couple of days ago I finished the draft of Book Two of the book that I’d really like to call The Terror but probably shouldn’t. I was really hoping to get the draft done right around now as my wife is expecting our second child and I don’t see myself getting a lot of writing done in these coming months.
Now I just have to figure out how to finish the damn story. I’ve always had a soft spot for tense horror movies, but am most often disappointed by their final acts. It’s one thing to come up with a premise, but it’s so difficult to wrap up something that is primarily concerned with being horrific. I’ve never written a book like this before, and so if nothing else it’s a good exercise. What to do now…
Anyhow, so far these last two parts have pretty much gone to plan, so here’s the rest of my plan: get to a point where I can begin writing the draft of the final part before the new year. Finish that by the end of next summer. Then spend a year editing and revising. Which brings me to having it all done by 2017. But once I complete the draft of Book Three, I’d like to focus on the sections one at a time, so perhaps I could release Book One in… well, early 2017. Or late 2016.
Man, that sounds futuristic.
