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 (The Truth Seeker Chronicles)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Current Word Count: 11,282
Status: Reorganizing & Worldbuilding
Progress: Updating character pages on Scrivener
This might be a bit bare bones this week because you have a grumpy TSN. I stayed up until six this morning watching small animal vlogs and I didn’t wake up until seven so I’m cranky, hungry, sore, and out of sorts. Anyway, let’s get this done.
I spent the past two weeks writing the history of the world/main demographic, and the foundation of everything is a bitter ex and a broken promise. The bitter ex is the lady above Sariel Niss, or the closest picture I could find for her. Now that I’ve written the world’s history, I can finish her character page on Scrivener.
I’ve also made some progress on a map. The oceans are now in the right place lol. I was trying to find a good map software online, but I really need some sort of visual aid before I could do something like that. I may still pick up some software once I have more details ironed out, because I think it’ll be easier after that point.
Project: Story Audio Recording
Title: Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Progress: Adding in sound effects
Project: Research & Essay Organization
Status: Organizing Essay Notes
Progress: Working through notes for FFVII & ASOIAF comparative essays
This is the other thing I devote most of my time on even if neither are on my schedule for the day. I did go through the Final Fantasy Essays tab and it actually no longer exists lol. I was able to incorporate the main essay about archetypes and time loops into the notes I already have about the collective unconscious (re: Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung), though I still have quite a few things to iron out. The archetype/time loop essay is for the entirety of the Final Fantasy series, but I put it into the tab devoted to ASOIAF and FFVII paradigm comparatives, buuuut I also have a ton of other narratives to reference. I still think it belongs over there because I’ve come to the conclusion a lot of these essays are going to be a series of related ones.
Project: Author Website
Name: Adrienne’s Authorly Adventures
Still fumbling around like a baby bird with this. I have at least been posting this update on it. I’m honestly not that pressed about it. I think it will become more useful when I’m closer to publishing something. I have been sharing what I post there to my main page so that more people are seeing it.
- Game Reviews: Final Fantasy VI – I’m still making excellent progress with this. I really hope I can finish it before the end of this month.
- Book Review: Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke – I haven’t done much work on this since I’ve been wrapped up in my series and essays, but I hope to finish it soon.
I think I’m supposed to do 20 crunches today and I was supposed to do 15 yesterday. I don’t think the 20 is happening. I’ll start that tomorrow. I like the crunch challenge I found. It’s way easier than the others I was doing, topping out at 70 because it’s for beginners.
Alright, I think I’m going to go. I have more things to do and people keep messaging me lol.
