Can you believe how close we are to the release of Book Three?! Aaahhhh!
I’m both unbelievably excited and consumed with anxiety—I just really want everyone to enjoy so much! :D
The release content is well underway now, and were so glad to see you’re all enjoying it!
So this week we worked on things for after the Book Three release as well as continuing on with Book Four prep.
The checklists we came up with have really helped to calm me down a little from last week. Although it’s a lot, it definitely is now achievable goals seeing them written out so clearly. Most of it is finally just actually getting down things from past books (variables, events, possible branches, etc), which I have all in my head but at this point—with how much branching and how in-depth the books are getting—need to be actually written down for much easier reference.
But one of the fun things with that is that we’re going through all the previous books again to look for all the variables and where they pop up. It’s been a blast going back to the beginning to where this all started! :D
It’s also been very interesting to see how things have developed and changed from my very original plans to where I’m at now! Some moments came from nowhere and have led to surprising story events, and other things I planned to happen just didn’t come to fruition.
I did also sneak in a little Book Four planning. I’m definitely holding fire on that until all the prep is done and Book Three is released, but…it’s impossible for me not to, hehe! Mostly I’ve been working on the antagonist because they are much more of a… heavy hitter than they other antagonists but in a very different way from the antagonists I’ve had so far in the previous three books.
I’ve been very excited to write them for a very long time, as well as just what influence they’ll have…
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! We’ll be offline as usual, so I’ll update you all again next Friday! <3
