75,000 words into novel 3 and only seven scenes left to write. So close to the end, right?
I still have to write the parallel narrative that runs alongside the main story! I think the final word count is likely to be about 120,000 words - which will make this book the longest of all my novels.
It struck me this morning that I've not made it easy for myself with my novels because they all have different point of views and structures:
HEAVEN CAN WAIT - first person point of view, past tense, hero's journey
HOME FOR CHRISTMAS - two alternating first person point of views (there was a 3rd person POV too but that was cut during the edit), past tense, 3 Act Structure
NOVEL 3 - first person point of view, present tense, parallel narrative, 3 Act Structure
For me HEAVEN CAN WAIT was definitely most straightforward of the three to write, structure-wise.
What have you used in your novels? Have you tried using different POVs and structures? Any you found easier than others? What are you going to choose for your next novel? Any you'd never do again?
