One Month Down

So it's been a month that I've been working on my new WIP. And aside from being totally excited about writing it, another great thing has been happening. I'm re-excited to go back and do more revisions on books 2 and 3 of my Forgotten Worlds trilogy. This is based on great feedback I've been getting from my critique group along with better understandings of plotting, character development, etc.

WIP research done to date:
We just finished the 1930's The Mummy with Boris Karloff tonight.
We've watched The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, and The Scorpion King.
(And just an aside - all are fine for kids. The Scorpion King has maybe a couple "questionable" scenes, but is pretty tame).

WIP words written:
~37,000

Time left for first draft:
4 weeks (about 30 days)
