A post updated every other Sunday discussing my current writing projects and any completed the prior two weeks.
Finished Projects: 0
Working Title: The High Archon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Progress: Setting up notes in Scrivener
This week’s pic is a dead ringer for the titular character of the story and the male main. Not…so much the clothing, but the paleness and ethereal beauty. If this artist took commissions (and if I didn’t already have an artist I wanted to commission first) I’d absolutely tap them to do work.
The worldbuilding continues. I pulled out all of my old notebooks so I can organize and incorporate what’s in them into Scrivener. This is like twenty years of ideas that all started because I wanted to write about a city of goths among other things lol. So there’s a bit of parsing that’s necessary. Right now I’m trying to expound on and flesh out all of the languages I came up with. I’m not Tolkien by any means (I’m literally only fluent in my native English, and I could maybe blunder my way through Paris if the Parisiennes weren’t too impatient with me), but I find them fascinating, and I made some words, syntax, and rules for a few of them, mostly based on Latin and German because those are my favorite languages to sing in (Carmina Burana and Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy anyone?). Anyway, it’s a long process, and I haven’t even touched on the main worldbuilding I need in order to start writing, but any progress is good progress.
Project: Story Audio Recording
Title: Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Progress: Adding pictures for slideshow
I’m the slightest bit stuck right now; nothing too concerning especially considering I’ve been stuck before lol. I always figure something out, but it may take a few days. Sometimes my utter lack of talent in the visual arts field makes for some creative solutions, and I think that’s what’s going to happen here. I’m in the last fifteen minutes, which means I’m in the home stretch. I have thirty minutes so far and 177 pictures. Even when I’m “done,” I still have a bunch of artists to ask permission from, but I’ll deal with that bridge when I reach it.
- Book Reviews: The Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint – I honestly thought this was going to be one of those quick reviews especially since it’s DNF, but apparently I had a lot to say about useless men/dickhead dads and missing moms in the short time I did read it lol (though, to be fair, I always do).
- Game Reviews: Final Fantasy VI – I maybe wrote one paragraph in this over the past two weeks. It’s been hard to muster up the energy. Ah well, I persevere.
I did some Christmas shopping yesterday as planned, and I have it on my schedule to do more today, but I also didn’t get out of bed until 3:00. I’m really achy today, possibly a fibro flare. My head hurts, too, ugh. I’m staying hydrated and petting Cid whom I call “my little, purring serotonin machine.” It’s like instant. No matter how shitty I’m feeling, petting the kitties makes everything better.
Oh fuck…Christmas is literally next week, ughhhhhh.
