As you know I closed up my NanoWriMo challenge on day 13 but I’ve been picking at my novel actively since then. My new book, The Birch Island Chronicles, is at that awkward stage now where it’s got all its structure but it probably isn’t worth reading. I need to get it to readable so I can get some feedback on it.
This kind of work is going to require a lot of repetitive editing, so I’ll need some support. It’s time to bring back writing partners!
This shoggoth is one of the guys I worked on over NaNoWriMo. I have been playing the Call of Cthulhu tabletop RPG with my wife and friends, so working through the minis in CMON’s Cthulhu: Death May Die board game seems like a good use of my brainstorming time.
The minis in Death May Die are easy to work with and very detailed. I find they take dry brushing well so they are perfect for absent minded painting while you’re focusing on something else.
I couldn’t think of better writing partners to work with while writing horror. They’re going to be put to the test though. I have one more week in November and I want this new novel to be in it’s second draft before December. Beyond that, who knows, I’m really digging writing in this world and from what I can tell indie authors do their best when publishing series. Maybe I’ll just roll into the next book in the series? I have the entire Death May Die line, so I have plenty of friends to paint if I’m aiming to release a horror series next year… not that I’m going to. Though it does sound like a lot of fun…
