I’ve been doing something a bit different this past week or so; working on all three of the novellas of my series at the one time.
Now, those of you who know me know that I often work on multiple projects at once, but not usually related ones. In this case I’m typing up the long-handed words of N3 and doing editing notes on N1 and N2.
I think because all three are in “scratch draft” phase – where there’s a lot still to be nailed down in terms of the worldbuilding and how things relate – it’s actually not as confusing working between them as I expected. In some ways it’s making getting them to a fully fleshed out draft a bit easier, because I can see the inconsistencies between the three novellas as I dip in and out of them.
It’s making me wonder if I will continue to work like this throughout. Though, I can see it might start to make things harder once each novella has its own character. I’m excited to see!
