Oh, it was a good one this week! It had a little dip but really picked up later!
The dip was just me feeling a majorly overwhelmed at one point. There’s SO much I want to do in the world of Wayhaven, as well as Book Four (Curse of Creek Edge, Book One and Two spruce-up, plenty of other ideas…). But time seems to be against me, and the main series will always be my focus as I write it.
I’ve still not worked out how I’m going to fit it all in, if I can, but I’ve been focused on Book Four’s plans at the moment, and that is just going seriously smoothly! The amount of scenes I’m already bursting with excitement to write is…a lot, hehe!
I was also SUPER happy as I managed to come up with this awesome idea to fill in a gap where I wasn’t sure what to put. I just had ‘Something here’ written in the plan, but as I was typing it up it came to me, and I love what it’s going to be!
Well, actually, what it might be depending on what you pick, hehe! The scene has the same feel to it whichever version as it’s something to help the player start deciding where they want to go on the new Agency stats being introduced, but depending on which characters you choose to be with in that scene should add a very different feel to it and give some very different viewpoints!
One of the other things I’ve been tackling this week is deciding whether to add a certain big thing into Book Four. Vague, I know, but I don’t want to mention it in case I can’t end up doing what I’d like.
It would only be a Book Four thing, so it’s not as if I really have to worry about it exploding into major branching in later books but…I’m still not sure… It would be a very indulgent thing for me, hehe!
Think I will see how planning goes, but I’ll talk more about that if I decide to add it or not!
As you might be able to tell, a lot of big and small decisions happen within these early planning stages. But it’s better to make those decisions now rather than try to adjust anything major once I get to writing! That’s definitely the plan for going forward with Book Four this time—a much more intensely detailed plan so as writing will hopefully go smoother and quicker!
Hope you all have the most amazing weekend! We’ll be offline as usual, so I’ll talk to you all again next week! <3
