Night Soil — Three-Quarter Report

We’re at the three-quarter intermission in the writing of Night Soil, and I’m still thinking that the working title won’t be the final title this time. With most of the previous books I ended up using the working title when I published them. This time, though, the book isn’t turning out to be enough like the title to justify keeping it. That’s what a working title is for, though, right? Just something to get you through the writing of the book, then you’re supposed to pick something that reflects the actual story.

I’m still enjoying writing it. There have been some bits of life intervening and causing delays and slow-downs, but when I can get to it, I’m liking it. My characters are really showing their true natures, and the relationships between them are developing. I always wonder before starting a new book whether I will be able to find enough words to get us through it. But, they are always there. I’m glad because I really enjoy seeing how the story comes out.

So there’s the three-quarter report on my novel, Night Soil (for the time being.) I estimate another two months of writing, then it’s on to all the mechanical stuff. Proofing, editing, formatting and recording. There will be some interruption in the coming weeks because we’re moving house, but then I’ll be able to pick up my fountain pens and get back at it.
