A post updated every other Sunday discussing my current writing projects and any completed the prior two weeks.
Finished Projects: 1
Working Title: The High Archon
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Progress: Setting up notes in Scrivener
Sometimes you take steps back in a process, which is why I removed “working on Chapter 1 outline” from the status. I’ve been hashing out more notes and trying to refine the connections between this and my first novel. I’m trying to decide if I want to make a Scrivener for that prior to starting work on this. Obviously The Serpent’s Tale is already written, but it needs a complete overhaul. Because it’s the foundation of this story, I have characters and settings from it in Scrivener under “Past Characters” and “Past Settings,” but there’s a lot of crossover, and it might just be easier to make it its own. Even if it wouldn’t help with this novel, it’ll help when I rewrite TST. It’s really just deciding if I want to do it prior to jumping into this, and this all started because I needed to make a map lol. I am absolutely awful at direction so a visual representation would really help; however, I’m also shit at drawing and measuring distances so there’s that, too. All of the online map creators are either too complicated or cost money, so here I am doing it freehand. I have notes about where certain places were located as well as the story’s starting and ending point. It’s just filling out the details between.
