Twelve chapters in “The Overzealous Healer” and I have written 18,895 words! This is a first for me, and such a long story. I don’t think I can keep up steam without burning out, so I’ll slow down (I still have classwork during Coronavirus lockdown, heh). A novel is 50,000+ words; I’m not even halfway there, but eventually I will be. I have about 4,400 words worth of snippets for the plot, and I’ve been fleshing out the outline with more adventures. I wonder at what point the plot will reach, if/when I hit 50,000.
I also want to create mugshots of each of the characters, but it takes a while to render them. I’ll see how far I can get without distracting myself from finishing the novel.
I recorded a timelapse video of making the cover.
Honestly, I hope this doesn’t sound self-indulgent, but I love this cover so much. I love the thematic representation. To be honest, I’m scared my writing will fall short of the cover, and fail to live up to its expectations.
