A weekly post updated every Thursday discussing my current writing projects and where I stand with them. This will include any and all work(s) in progress (WIP) be they creative writing, essays/analyses, or reviews of any type.
Title: The Broken Rose
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction (FFVII) Novel
Current Word Count: 277,027
Prior Word Count: 277,058
Word Difference: -31
Progress: Reread-through of Chapters 4-6
I thought this would be an appropriate picture, as Sephiroth certainly treats her like a (stereotypical) princess, and the rose is appropriate in sobriquet and Chapter 7’s reality. As I am going back through prior chapters and am currently out of pictures, this one seemed fitting for this tale.
At the very least, doing these read-throughs is fairly quick. I’m already finished with Chapters 4 and 5 with only Chapter 6 left. I’m supposed to edit tonight, and I’m hoping to get to it through my exhaustion. If I finish the chapter by this weekend (and hopefully find that errant and incorrect “your”), I’ll be able to start organizing my many notes for Chapter 8.
Title: Half a Tragedy Is Worse Than Whole
Subject: FFVII Comparative and Meta
Current Word Count: 1436
Prior Word Count: 649
Word Difference: 787
Progress: Potential new title and definition of tragedy in six parts
I consider any session where I write more than the last to be a success. Not only that I thought of another potential title besides “Half a Tragedy…” that I like a great deal more. It explains not only what continually draws me to FFVII, but also metaphorically describes a personal and unresolvable dilemma. I think I’ll leave what the new title is for when I post it.
What are you currently working on? Is it a creative writing project, essay, review, or something else? Have you just started something new or are you wrapping up a long term project?
