Hello protagonists, and welcome to the first weekly SODA TIME! Now, Soda Time is just a stupid name that I gave to a weekly update blog. Essentially, every Tuesday I’ll keep you folks all up to date on whatever projects I’m working on, upcoming projects, and so on.
Anyways, today folks, I want to talk about New Game+. To start, I feel like it’s going very well! I am a bit behind on schedule, but personal matters got in the way and made it really hard to actually sit down and write. But I have a pretty lenient schedule I feel everything will go fairly well from here on out.
In terms of words, I’m at 5,419 as of this update which means I’m roughly 7% done! With NG+ I’m doing something a bit differently from Spring-Heeled Jack. You see, with SHJ I wrote out the outline chapter by chapter and then told myself that each chapter needed to be roughly 2,000 words. However, this made the 19-chapter book just barely under 50,000 words. Technically, a novel is supposed to have over that amount, but my excuse is going to be that it’s for kids and not that I had poor word management.
Anyways, I plan for New Game+ to have roughly 80,000 words. This is mainly just a personal reason and I’m not going to add thousands and thousands of words of fluff just to reach that word cap. After all of that being said, however, I feel that reaching that number shouldn’t be hard. The estimated time to finish is around July 10th. If you’re curious to see how far along I am though, I will be keeping a percentage of my progress listed on the home page, so keep an eye out for that. I promise I won’t forget about it.
So that’s it for this week’s update protagonists! As always, thank you very much for tuning in and I hope you have a wonderful day.
