Now Working On The Novel’s ‘Bible’

by Shelton Bumgarner

I’m now working on the document that will be what I use to actually write the first draft of the novel itself. I’m giving myself until July 4th to finish it. Or, put it another way, whatever I have at that point, I’m running with.

I’m trying to give myself a page a scene, or about 200 pages. And I’m trying to do in a way whereby I can essentially scan the text and get as much information as possible. This comes after I’ve finished a scene summary, which has helped a lot.

It took a long, long time — several months — to get to this point. But now things should move a lot quicker. I should be able to wrap the bible up by my deadline and work seriously towards wrapping up a first draft — that only I will read — within about three months.

After that, I will take about a month break, as is suggested.

Then I will turn around and do it all over again. Though, I suspect the things will go much, much faster. I’m shooting for a Summer 2020 publishing date, though I have a hunch for various reasons, it may be more like Summer 2021.

I just don’t know, though. I just don’t know.

I’m moving as fast as I can. Overall, it feels great. I’m really pleased with what I’ve managed to come up with so far. It’s a really interesting little political fairytale.

Wish me luck.

I’m now giving myself until July 1st, 2019 to wrap up development. But that’s really simply erroring on the side of caution. There’s a decent change I will be ready to write the official first draft of the novel a lot sooner than that unless disaster strikes.

Which, of course, it could very well do.
