Yup, Dark One’s Mistress skipped over the ten thousand mark. And it happened a chapter before I thought it would. ^_^
Like I mentioned in an earlier post, if this works, I will have done two things: sticking to one point of view and, basically, trying to keep the same level of action in a limited travelling area. I’ve a bad track record in both. Though I’ve attempted the former before in The Unborn, I couldn’t stop myself from switching pov’s for the three ‘epilogues’. It was necessary for that novel. I’ve two main characters sharing the narration in Dragon and three in The Rogue King.
It’s whether the latter holds up over fifty/sixty words. Part of me thinks I may be getting just a bit too over my head there. Guess I’ll just have to see how it goes. It’s a rather large citadel, so all should be okay, but then again my main character travelled two levels in a paragraph. It all depends on what’s more important at the time, I suppose.
But, at the moment, the one pov is going quite well for me. I’ve gotten a good number of words out of it, anyhow. ^_^
