The process of rewriting Origins has been tedious, to say the least. There’s a lot more content, a lot better characters, a lot cleaner plot development. Overall, it’s just better, but with that comes a lot of writing. I managed a couple dozen thousand words last month before getting far too drained to continue. I’m maybe 3/4 of the way through the second part of the book (out of four parts). Of course, there’s a lot more ahead of me beyond writing. I’m looking to go a traditional publishing route, which will likely take a significant amount of time in and of itself. I’m trying to push out as much as I can, but with the stress of having to find a new job post-grad and moving and all that nice junk, I’m worried I won’t get to finish as soon as I’d like.
