Progress Journal comin' atcha! Hello I'm Lady Marmalade, I've never done one of these but I think they'd be a good motivator for writing. It couldn't hurt to try at least. I'm planning on writing a YA urban fantasy trilogy, something that I would've liked to read when I was a bright eyed teenager. I've done a fair bit of world building before writing the plot outline to the first book. By world building I mean race building... I built a race of wizards. They're a sub-species of human and they're quite different from the typical wizard you see in fantasy. I wrote the plot outline to the first book and I wrote the epilogue for fun. It's four pages and it sets up the second book. I don't have a clear outline for the second book yet but I know the basic direction it's going in. I'm going to write the first draft backwards for a change. The second draft I'll write forwards and the third I'll write backwards again. Next I have to write about the young heroine winning the final battle... sweet.
