Ok on the Lord and the Duchess. I am eliminating chapters from the side characters and instead focusing on Elisabetta (the Duchess), Daniyel (the Lord), and Jean Michele (the Duke) as the main story is really about them and the rest of the stuff I had in my outline was subplot. That story can wait and right now it's all a mash and I'm like 15K and 50 pages in and she's just about to arrive to the fucking place. So basically I'm gonna start over.

Right now I'm shooting for the book to hit 70-80K maybe? I have to break down the wordcount into little goals or otherwise that number seems impossibly big to me. It's like how I read. If it's a big book break it down. 100 pgs one hr. 100 more the next. I find I work better that way.

I wrote a sestina but it makes no damn sense but I think the form is better this time around than the one I did on Matilide and Stefano. But it makes no sense so I will be working on it. I need to look through my past drafts for the month of December and then work on them. Ay!
