Chaboocha 2018

Greetings and salutations. It's been a while since my last update; my daughter and I were due to move at the end of January/beginning of February so we were busy house-hunting, and sorting, culling, and packing our belongings. I continued to write daily, but I couldn't spend the time writing as much as I wanted. At almost the 11th hour we found out that we didn't have to move. We were relieved as we do love where we live. Since then we've just been trying to catch our breath, and slowly reorganise the house. We're taking the time to change things up. One of the first changes that we made was to move office area, and while it isn't finished I'm already loving the changes. Pics will be posted later when it's finished. So today was the first day of chaboocha (chapter book challenge) where participating writers aim to write a book over the course of the month. I have decided to resume work on "Death Goes to High School". I have spent the past couple of weeks prepping as much as I could, while nursing a head-cold. I rarely get colds but this one knocked me for six. I looked closely at my earlier attempts; worked out what could be salvaged, what needed to be pushed to book two, and what needed to be scrapped entirely. Today I wrote approx 1000 words, which wasn't as much as I had hoped to write, but I did also identify cliches/tropes, found more that could be moved to book two, and spent more time developing themes for the book. I'm casually confident that I'll be able to finish a very rough draft by the end of the month. I'm aiming to post daily updates across the various social media platforms; with the majority being posted on here and over at Patreon.
