Last week I reached the point where it was time to begin adding the content to the website – this week, I’m still working through it. Similar to this blog, my website will contain descriptive elements from many of the writing books / courses that I find, as well as a catalogue of my journey as I complete the first draft of my novel.
Well, even though I have quite a backlog of information to use as an update now, I’m beginning to realise that a lot more of this content will have to be trickle-fed to my website on a periodic basis – basically as it’s developed.
With that in mind, I figured that I should at least work toward getting the bare-bone content / description up on each page (of which there are now sixty-six) by the end of this week before I take the plunge and start to beef up the detail. This should give me the whole month of April to get the site ready for a May 1st release.
In terms of pages, I’ve begun to develop a new section on map-making. Why? Well, I’m heavily invested in the Fantasy genre and just felt that this is a topic that should be covered. Also, I’ve been working on a map for my own world of Monecia in my downtime and thought it may be worthwhile cataloguing the research that I’ve been doing as I bring this world to life, especially as I’ll be covering so many other elements of world-building.
The work that I need to put in over the next few weeks is quite daunting and I know that it’s going to take time away from actually writing the first draft itself. However, I can’t keep juggling things and never completing any of them so it has to be time to start ticking things off the lists instead of adding to them.
That’s it for this week!
