Monthly Challenge: August

Happy 1st of September everyone! Autumn has arrived! Just a short post that I should've done before August actually ended but better late than never am I right?

This (last) month I challenged myself to write lore for the characters in my novel. The challenge was to write one characters lore a week, meaning by the end of August, I should have had five characters individual lore completed. So how did I do? Erm....ok but not great. I completed two. The other three I started but never got finished. So I'd say I completed like 40% of this months challenge. I thought a week would be more than enough time to write out a basic back story for my character, especially since a lot of it is based around the events in the novel I am currently writing, but I was dead wrong. Writing out lore is hard. You don't want to go into so much detail that you're essentially writing a character synopsis but you don't want to skip out little details that help define their character.

As a result, I struggled a lot more than I thought I would but I am still determined to get the lore for each character written out. Maybe just not one a week. But we're in September now and that means it's time for a new monthly challenge. I have already started on it and hopefully I'll have it completed come the 30th. You'll just have to wait until my next monthly challenge update to find out what it is and how I did.

Until next time,
