I rewrote dreams #1 and #2! ... And, instead of being the awesome things I expected, they seem kind of wordy and long and not very dreamlike at all. So I'm going to sleep on them and see if I can make them stronger.

I'll try for tomorrow! But we have a New Year's Eve party, so I don't know how far I'll get. At least I have Tuesday off!

Posts this week and next! [Dec. 9th, 2012|01:28 pm]

I have a new abomination of a chapter--currently sitting in at 5,500 and /completely unedited/--that I'll post... tomorrow, I think. It needs some attention before I post it, and I'm hoping that it'll get smaller (and not larger.) I don't have a lot of hope. D: At this point, I'm thinking the previous chapter and this one need to be split up into 3 chapters, not two.

And I'll be late next week, too! Irwin and I are going to Vegas to see his family from Saturday to Wednesday. I do most of my writing on Tuesdays, so I'll probably have something to post next week, but it'll be posted much later than normal.

Holidays are messy!

I mostly just tweaked the outline. It's... now acceptable-ish for the next 4 chapters, though now the ones leading up to the ending need some work. :\ I still wrote a chapter, though! It's very drafty. I'm going to edit it tomorrow and post it then, since I spent this weekend finishing my Halloween costume instead. Sorry for the delay!

OK, so I didn't end up finishing that chapter this weekend. :| But I *am* close, so I'll finish that tomorrow and send it over. I'll read your two chapters then, too!

Sorry for the delay!

I think I'm going to try to get more writing done during the week this week. Guild Wars is still way too distracting on the weekends. D: (Also, if you've ever messaged me and I haven't responded, I apologize. I hardly ever look at the chat box. I really ought to move it somewhere more obvious.)

I'm being such a terrible slacker. :( But terribly I posted this week already, right?!?! C.C

Still outlining!

Morgan self-published last week, randomly. It's available on Kindle over here. It's not available any other way, unfortunately!

I know another dude who's self-publishing this week, too. Super weird!

This has made me fiercely competitive for some reason, so I've been pretty productive this week. I have:

* Completed the short outline for the entire story
* Started on the long outline (I've done 3 chapters out of 15.)
* Written a bunch of basic theme files.

I really need to pump up:
* Theme files for history and culture, because these are pretty shallow. I want this to be a story that has a vivid setting. Or at least more vivid than I normally do.
* Characterization, because for one rare time in my life I'm focusing more on the outline than the characters. Ooopsie-doodles.

So I still have a lot to sort out. But it's still progress!

Outlining Week! [Aug. 19th, 2012|04:05 pm]
CritiWriting: Let's Critique Eachother's Writing!

I'm not sure when I'll start writing. Hopefully in the next few weeks!

I still have a /lot/ of outlining to do, though. And worldbuilding. Half the characters don't even have names right now. (In my outline, the demi-gods, which are now dubbed the Unending, are just referred to by titles. The two main characters' are "Justice" and "Flame" right now. This will not do. It's amazing how much you can outline without referring to people by name, though.)

But I really want this to have a world, and I really want it to be an action story, which means I have a hell of a lot of planning to do. I haven't had a lot of success with either of those things, and I'm really going to have to think hard about how to pull those off. :\ Jewels was a first attempt at action, and it was /okayish/, but I'm hoping I can do that better.

DONE DONE ALL DONE

But, like last week, I really need to edit this shit. It's really outline-y at this point. I need to make it sound less horrible.

But I finished Chapter 13 and the Epilogue because, well, they were both short and it was easy to do. So I'll have that posted on Wednesday!

All in all, it's 53,000 words, which is better than I thought it'd be. I have a *lot* of ending to do, and a lot of stuff to cut out. But I'm hoping I'll still be around 50K by the time I'm done.

I don't feel liberated from this story yet--it's still not done-done--but it's still super awesome to be making progress. Hurray! I've started the first few slivers of outlining for the next story, but it's definitely not far enough along for me to start writing (as much as I'd like to.) I suspect I'll need to do a lot of outlining and research before I get hauling on that one. But I have a good feeling(TM) about that one!

I finished the BIG FINALE. Finally. Oh gosh. I'm finally so close to finishing this thing!

But because it's the FINAL BATTLE, it needs a lot of editing. I expect to do that sometime early this week. By Wednesday, I'll have it posted. And if I'm super productive, then I'll even post the last chapter, too! AND THEN ILL BE DONE (except for editing.)

SO CLOSE
