It was 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) today. We had 3 to 6 inches of snow this time last week. This was a good delivery day. Like almost every Tuesday (Wednesday and Friday) I was a Blue Apron car. I had a car full of Blue Apron. I like doing the Blue Apron and having that predictable route. I can plan it as I scan so I ca lay it out before I pack the car making the process easier. It also gave me the opportunity to change the route when I was out on the road without skipping stops by accident. From what I can see (on the news and Weather Channel App) this week is going to be a good delivery week with no snow until December 24th. Fingers crossed.
Looking back on volume 1 of the Book with No Name I can see where I made many mistakes. I am going to try and use these mistakes and learn from them, so I can make all new ones with Volume 2. A big one is the part structure. By focusing on parts I made way too many jumps making the story a little fractured. I was more worried about having content that continuity. I also will use a list of characters and plot points, so I can keep names and motivations clear while I type. In Kaylee and the Book, the names Bob and Bill were interchanged when I was on just one character. He will be back in Volume 2, so I need to keep it strait. I think that is one of the reasons I have had so little content this week. I am having a hard time gearing up, so I can do a better job. It’s also hard to let the first Volume go.
I am going to work on chapter one of volume 2 today and I will post something tomorrow. If I can it will be the first half of chapter one (but I will post something even if just a part). It won’t be like I did with the first book. The goal is to have a concise base for the book to be built on. This first chapter is set before he (Bill) opens the book. It covers his life and family and just maybe why he was targeted for the book. His (Bill) journey with the book will be different than Kaylee’s. I am 4,000+ words in without a single hint of the book (not counting an orange Easter egg from book 1). My plan is to work on this until 8pm (EDST). Then I watch IT (just bought the 2017 movie on Amazon Video and I want to watch it in the dark).
Thank you for your time and patience.
