A Kingdom Divided Into Threes

Well, with grades done, I sat down late tonight to do something I have been meaning to do for a while. Make a stab at locating the breaks between the three books in my YA trilogy project.

It actually went far better than I expected. The divisions may actually even stay there, though nothing is carved in stone. And there's still the one big trilogy file, so I can work across the stories all at once.

Anyway, I've set the goals for each volume at 80,000 words, so I also reset the big trilogy counter from 200,000 words to 240,000 words.

And I am STILL having fun.

The new, new shiny counters:

The Lost Kingdom Project YA Trilogy Version 1.06

Book 1

Book 2

Book 3

The Lost Kingdom Fourth Novel Version 1.03

*** Note: the numbers for Books 1-3 don’t add up, because there is text which is in a section which hasn’t been assigned to a Book and Chapter yet.

I had been lamenting that I didn't really have many words for Book 3 -- and it turns out to be an almost identical count for Book 4. Also Books 1 and 2 are close in size so far. I am nothing, if not consistent.

And yes, you'll be getting a tiny taste of my princesses for Christmas, when I publish my annual Christmas story on my LJ/DW blogs. (grin)
