The Revolution Diaries part 46

This week, with chapter forty-eight of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy complete, I moved on to chapter forty-nine as the characters continued to interact and debate among themselves. Once that chapter was done, I worked on a few random lines before starting work on both chapters fifty and fifty-four. Other than that,Continue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 46”

The Revolution Diaries part 45

After almost a week’s worth of writer’s block, I started this week by finally finishing off chapter forty-six and moving on to chapter forty-seven. Here, I have a couple of characters interacting for the first time, so I used the opportunity to unveil some of one of the character’s backstory, fleshing them out a littleContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 45”

The Revolution Diaries part 44

As the new week dawned, I completed chapter forty-five of the last book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Revolution, and moved on to chapter forty-six. After a couple of paragraphs in, I found I wasn’t happy with the second paragraph and deleted it. Then I realized that I was stuck. Everything came toContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 44”

The Revolution Diaries part 43

At the start of this week, I was in need of another brainstorming session, as I continued to work on chapter forty-four of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. The session really helped and I realized that the spot that I’d become stuck on was a perfect place to end the chapter andContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 43”

The Revolution Diaries part 42

With the first half of the last book in the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Revolution, finished and currently going through final edits, I can at last turn my full attention on what remains of the second half of the book. This week I began the first of two sections that I’ve been looking forwardContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 42”

The Revolution Diaries part 41

Back on track after last week’s brush with self-doubt, I finished off chapter thirty-six of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy and moved on to the last two chapters of the first half of the book. I began with chapter seventeen where I’m dealing with the story from the aliens’ point of viewContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 41”

The Revolution Diaries part 40

This week started off with an attack on my confidence. About a week ago I was pleased to find that my sixth novel, Scorched Earth: Arrival, had been rated five stars on Amazon, but then fast forward to the beginning of this week and I was shocked to see that the reader had seemed toContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 40”

The Revolution Diaries part 39

This week started slowly. After I’d completed chapter twenty-two of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, I wanted to move on to chapter twenty-three, but I wasn’t sure how to proceed with this particular sub-plot. Fortunately, after a couple of brainstorming sessions, I managed to get past the writer’s block and was onContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 39”

The Revolution Diaries part 38

Shortly after I’d finished writing last week’s post, I completed chapter forty-one of the last book of the Scorched Earth trilogy. With that done, it was time to begin working on the final eight chapters of the first half of the book. I wrote chapter twenty-one, then briefly jumped over to chapter twenty to writeContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 38”

The Revolution Diaries part 37

This week began with me finishing chapter thirty-two of the final book of the Scorched Earth trilogy, Scorched Earth: Revolution, before eagerly going over to chapter forty-one, where all the main characters eventually meet up. However, the interference of constant rolling power outages this week meant I failed to make much progress until Thursday whenContinue reading “The Revolution Diaries part 37”
