In all fairness first draft was done a couple days ago but I got excited and started the plotting process for my series.

Project: Maddox Files: Back To Business
First draft is done! Completed. Feeling a huge sense of accomplishment.
Since it is a series … yes I am planning a series for my Maddox character. I am currently outlining what I want to see in my other books for this character and her growth.
I am also jotting down some plot ideas, story lines, character sketches.
I’m making a list of what I want this book to look like. Making a few notes and then my plan is to start the rewriting process starting Monday!
If you are writing a series … writing tip of the day: Outline what you want your character to look like in the first novel and what he/she/it will be in the 5th and 10th and 15th novel. There should be some well defined quirks, likes and dislikes. A couple back stories that shape your character into the person/being that they are.
Having a clear idea of what you want for your character down the road will allow you to place things in your earlier works that will make sense in those works but be part of a bigger picture in the long run.
Have a great weekend! Keep writing and rewriting!
