A post updated every other Sunday discussing my current writing projects and any completed the prior two weeks.

Finished Projects: 0


Project: Story
Working Title:
The High Archon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Original
Length: Novel
Current Word Count: 676
Prior Word Count: 676
Word Difference: 0
Status: Drafting
Progress:
Chapter 1

I moved all my notes for Chapter 1 to Scrivener, so now I have those and my outline on that program.  I did some more world-building over the past few weeks as well, since there were a few things I needed to figure out.  Now I want to look at all of my “false starts” over the years and see what I can glean from that.  No clue when I’ll start drafting again, but I at least know the direction I’m going.


Project: Story Audio Recording
Title: Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction
Length: Novel
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Status: Editing
Progress: First edit of Chapter 3

I never realized how long Chapter 3 was lol.  That’s a lie; I’m sure I did last time I edited, but that was years ago, and the TSN that did that was a different person.  I think I’m almost done with the first  edit.  It will be hilarious if I either don’t or only just finish that before I have the chance to record again.

Progress: First edit of Chapter 3

Progress is going well with this.  As I’ve stated before it’s much easier to edit than NL since it’s my latest finished project.


In Progress

  • Game Reviews: Final Fantasy VI – I’m onto editing the Story Synopsis section.  The Introduction and Gameplay sections look good, though I might do one more final edit after everything is said and done.
  • Book Reviews: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North – I was going to just list all of the stories with similar time loop paradigms, but I didn’t like how that was going.  It seemed more natural to put them into the places where I was talking about their paradigms, so that’s what I did.  I think I’m ready to move on with the review and afterwards the analysis.

Ugh, this is one of those days where caffeine does the complete opposite of what it’s supposed to.  My ability to concentrate is null and void, and I still have a ton of things on my to do list to take care of.
