Just Finished First Draft of the Main Plot!

by Wes Penre, February 12, 2021

This morning, I completed the first draft of the main plot, which describes the part of Ismaril’s journey as far as Book One goes. Now, I’m going to go back to beginning and edit it, while at the same time start writing on the subplots that will be inserted as separate chapters into the main plot where it fits and is appropriate. These subplots–at least in Book One–will not be nearly as substantial when it comes to word count as the main plot, so the most extensive part is now already written.

Thank you for your interest in my work!

February 9 Update on my Novel

by Wes Penre, February 9, 2021

I just want to give you a short update on my writing process.

I love writing this novel, and it goes very well, IMO. I write for 2-3 hours every morning, and I have now written ~95,000 words on my first draft (that’s about 310 pages with the font I’m using). But because it’s the first draft, it will fortunately be condensed and reduced during the editing process, or the novel will be very long. However, I only have one chapter left of this particular linear time narrative.

I’ll explain what that means:

So far, I have written the direct linear narrative pertaining to the main protagonist, Ismaril, on his journey north. This narrative will soon be completed as far as the first book goes (The Book of Secrets). Then, I will write and fill in the subplots that will run in parallel to the main plot that’s just about finished. These subplots, although happening in different locations, will eventually intertwine with the main plot.

Hope this makes sense…

Spiritual Handbook for the Twenty-First Century

by Wes Penre, February 9, 2021

I just got an email from Amazon that my next (and last, for now,) book has been published on amazon.com in Kindle and Paperback versions. This is the 2013, “Beyond 2012–A Handbook for a New Era,” but I have retitled it “Spiritual Handbook for the Twenty-First Century,” which I think is a more appropriate title. I also made some small changes in the Introduction part of the book.

Here is the web address: www.amazon.com/dp/B08W7SNKF2/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1612871455&sr=1-4 .

Amazon says it can take up to 7 days before the LOOK INSIDE features and the cover image for the Kindle version shows up on the amazon page, but it happened the same day with the previous book, so I hope that will be resolved very soon…

So, the next book I will publish is the novel I’m working on, but it’s still very much in progress
