The State of the Writer: 10/2/22

<–The State of the Writer: 9/18/22         The State of the Writer: 10/16/22–>

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

Finished Projects: 1

Project: Story/Series
Working Title:
The High Archon (The Truth Seeker Chronicles)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Original
Length: Novel
Current Word Count: 11,282
Status: Reorganizing & Worldbuilding
Updating background information on Scrivener

I’m not quite sure what I’m going to work on next.  I’ve finished the pages for the major characters, and I made one for all the pronouns in the Rava language (I had a spreadsheet already of course).  I’ve been trying to work on better organizing the Pinterest boards since things seem out of sorts, and I’m also updating the name pronunciation guide and term glossary on Scrivener.

I’d love to say I’ll be ready to write for NaNoWriMo next month, but I doubt it, especially since I’m not sure if I’m going to rewrite The Serpent’s Tale before I start the WIP.  Although (and I think I mentioned it before), my friend who is (also) an author Kat made a good point that writing the WIP first would give me guidance with where I’d want TST to head, and I don’t think that’s a bad idea.  Especially since I’ve already drafted the “first” novel, so it’s not like I’m not working with anything.  It’s not a bad suggestion and I’m already taking editing notes for when I go back to TST.  Eh, these sound like problems for Future TSN :p

Project: Story Audio Recording
Title: Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction
Length: Novel
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Status: Editing
Progress: Adding in sound effects

Remember how I said I was putting this on hold last time?  Hm, well I did also say I might work on it during my two week vacation, so I wasn’t completely flakey lol.  I did a little bit of work one day last week and added one sound effect.  I had two medical appointments on Thursday, which means I had to spend Wednesday preparing, Thursday doing, and Friday recovering.  A bit of that recovery spilled into Saturday, and well today I’m doing this.  I had some lofty hopes that I might finish Chapter 2 during vacation, but I know that’s not going to happen.  As long as I can make some progress I’ll be content.

Project: Research & Essay Organization
Status: Organizing Reference Material
Progress: Moving pertinent notes into Essay and Research Notebook on OneNote

I’m currently re-organizing the notes on this and moving things into the Essay and Research Notebook for easier access.  There’s more organization I want to do with the essays, but I need to figure out exactly what.

Project: Author Website
Name: Adrienne’s Authorly Adventures
Status: Active
Progress: Updating

I should probably update this lol.  I should also do that TikTok stitch I found about my “best written line.”

In Progress

  • Game Reviews: Final Fantasy VI – I have finally finished the Story Analysis section edit, and I feel like I might be in the home stretch.  The next section is Music.
  • Book Review: Alex + Ada: The Complete Collection by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn – I know I posted a book review this week that wasn’t this.  Idk I attempted to work on it and I just couldn’t get my thoughts straight so I moved onto the LKH because I knew it would be something I could easily get out, much easier than this.  I do want to come back to this, but tbh I don’t remember a lot of the details of it and almost want to read it again before I review.  Sadly, I’m not sure if I’ll have time for that, but on the other hand, this graphic novel touches on a lot of points I feel are important to discuss so I might make the time at some point.

I…think I may have had pneumonia haha, haha hahahaha.  The reason I think this is because both my dad and my older brother wound up in the hospital with that and they had the same symptoms I did 😳 They didn’t have a nebulizer though aha!  Anyway, I still live (somehow) and my big bro is recovering and that’s all that matters 💗  I thought pneumonia meant you’d be coughing up tons of phlegm since your lungs are filled with it, but nope, apparently you don’t really cough that much, so…oops.
