July 20 - 26

Didn't quite make my total this week: 3500 words.

However, I have a very productive time in plotting out the sequel's overall story line.  I had a plot line before I got started, but something about it didn't feel right.  It gritted against my creative instincts, like sandpaper.  So I spent one of my writing periods ripping it apart and putting it back together again.

Now I feel like I have a plot I can be excited about, not one I'm dreading having to fix later.

I'm also starting to suspect that I have too many characters and I'm going to have to trim the field a little.  A few of them can be combined without issue but I'm a little sad to lose some interesting backstories.

July 13-19

Made my target this week: 5000 words total.

I had a very clear set of images in my head for the start of the Revelations sequel (although still no good ideas for a title).  The words just started flowing out.  I'm taking it as a good sign for the rest of the project.
