I also spent a good bit of time researching this weekend and am making progress toward having the facts I need to do a rough outline for the rest of this Civil War series. And that horror? Yeah not sure if that's what I'm writing next. I think I'm going to do a Southern Gothic, but there's a chance it will have some magical realism and horror elements. Trying not to think too hard about it because of the outlining goal that I want to focus on.
This is a weird challenge for me overall, because word counts are not a part of my goals at this time. Which is sort of a first. But I'm excited and glad to have the accountability to make progress.
Goals remain the same:
- Roughly outline the rest of the STARS & STRIPES series, so that I have somewhere to go should it become something. As a note, this goes hand-in-hand with additional Civil War research. Made it through the summer of 1863 in my research.
- Think through some ideas for my next project. I have some basic plot ideas for this.
- Outline and/or begin my first draft of that piece.
- Read. Not sure how much, but just read. Read Gone Girl. Crazy, crazy read.
