Couldn't be happier right now with just about everything. I'll be honest, I wrote a LOT more than I'm used to writing this week (the first 3 chapters of Act Two) so, having said that... I'm probably going to keep this week's blog a little bit on the 'shorter' side.
But, wow. All that aside, humble brag incredibly proud of where things are at right now. Tackling the first three chapters of Act Two gave me an incredible amount of momentum for the road ahead. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to keep up with the pace I created for myself these next couple of weeks. And yet, so far, I'm exactly on target for having Act Two done by the time I fly home to California next month.
Of course, I'm not blind. These chapters aren't "perfect" - there's the whole editing stage, sprinkling pretty things all over it, tedious item #4, yada yada yada... you get the idea. BUT. That's the easy part, To me, at least. Once I throw the words on the page, I can form the specks into something pretty neat - I'd like to think. It's just GETTING THEM THERE that's the hardest part.
The last thing I wanted to mention is how excited I am about writing/continuing to write Act Two in general. When I first had the idea for where I wanted the story to go at this point of the series, I honestly thought, "Wow, that's a really neat concept, but there's no way in hell Kyle you're going to be able to pull that off."
I think I am. Piece by piece, day by day. And I've got a hell of a long way to go. But my energy is high, the well of motivation/inspiration hasn't been drained an inch... and I'm ready to go into next week and knock another 3 out.
Damn it, I didn't keep this on the shorter side.
