A SMALL UPDATE ON DURING THE BLUE HOUR
Writing the werewolf novel : Chapter 30 of my wip novel During the Blue Hour is now done for this 2nd draft. This particular chapter finished with a little over 5,000. I know maybe a bit long . But all together so far this 2nd draft is over 60,000 . So I think i’m about on target in completing the novel. This chapter sort of had three parts.
The summary/synopsis for this scene chapter 30 is : After making it home Sirena intercepts her mother’s rage about her missing but also finds out a truth about her father.
The first scene I mentioned on this chapter was that Sirena was on a deserted road and since she now knows that she is a werewolf which she is trying to deny, she can hear all the sounds and also senses that someone is following her.
I figured out who would be following
So when she gets home she finds the journal that Cristen left in her bag.
She finds that her mother is home and so she sneaks into the hallway and sees her mother looking at her fathers picture. Sirena steals the picture.
The third thing that happened in this scene is that she realises from the picture that the journal she was reading is her fathers journal. Thus confirming she really is a werewolf. To her surprise she is shocked and doesnt know what to do . And that very moment her mother pops in the room and finds out that she is home and Anthony is with her mother.
She tries to tell her mother what going on but Anthony calls the town police on her for burning down the rec center. Sirena jumps out the window and tries to run but gets stopped by the town police and captured and thats where my scene/chapter 30 ends with also she sees Adrian hiding telling her to be quiet.
This scene took a month to finish because I had to rewrite alitttle bit and change things around from the 1st draft.
Okay I explored alot in this chapter Sirena’s deep dive into who her father is and coming to the realization that she is a werewolf. In future chapters she is going to continue to fight this new reaility of her existence . And its not going to be fun at all. And the next chapter might be intense cause she is going to be captured. And so what will she do?
So the plan for the next chapter which I have already started writing is in Adrian’s Pov and he is on a journey to save her because he has until the blue hour to hand over Sirena’s father journal or the pack will be harmed by the werewolf council. So he has to hurry, not only that but he is wearing the diver mud which i talk a little bit about in that article but I will do a post on magical objects in a werewolf novel on another day. But the divers mud will wear off soon. And he can’t be around the town when that happens.
So I’ll let you know how it goes.
Let me know how your writing is coming along . I would love to hear.
