The Writing Madness of Oz! Day 13...

As you can tell, the pace is still a bit more relaxed, but I did manage to start and complete chapter 3 of The Ozian Adventure of Pickleless & Blu. 

In my initial chapter outline, I had planned by now to introduce the entrance into Oz and set up the meeting of new friends. Instead, as is often the case with me, I find the need to add an additional chapter in between outlined chapters in order to explain stuff.

One of my biggest concerns is writing a story that tends to drag on. When I wrote Family of Oz, it turned out to be as long as Magician of Oz and Shadow Demon of Oz combined. I kinda knew Family of Oz would be long, just not that long. However, I wouldn't cut a thing out of it as it turned out to be the exact length it needed to be.

For The Ozian Adventure of Pickleless & Blu, my goal is to write a shorter story than Magician of Oz, which comes out at 45,000 words. Now, I just have to figure out how not to overwrite a story and go into too much detail, although it's the details that really make my stories what they are. It's a matter of style and I don;t feel right truncating my style.

We'll see as time goes by. For now, the hero is making his way south and having a good time at it, as am I!!!
