Author Update 12/01/2022

It seems I’m not doing really well at this “weekly update” routine. Sometimes the story drives me so, I feel I have to take the time to step back and assess. Well, a significant event in the story has left me feeling a bit spent, and definitely needing a momentary break.

It seems that beating up your imaginary friends can sometimes take a bit of a toll on you. There may be minor spoilers in this entry, though I will do my best not to give away the big reveals.

Weekly Update 10/3/2022

This week’s output was, again, lacking. Two threads were pulled at and fleshed out.

Weekly Update 9/12/2022

This past week was not a great one as a writer. I spent some time at the keyboard but spent far more time setting up my website and looking at software for keeping track of my story’s timeline, characters, events, and interactions. I’m not big on planning, but now that I have a couple of episodes out there and establishing the universe, I need to keep track of those solidified and stable events before I can dive too much deeper into the universe. While the significant events are easy to keep track of, the smaller events and personal moments get harder to track as the story grows longer.

So, I had planned to do a weekly update on progress, give a brief overview of favorite scenes I had written or edited in the past week, and provide a brief glimpse into where the story might be headed. There was so little progress this past week due to spending a lot of time setting up the website software, it’s tough for me to think of something to fill each of those categories, but I’ll give it my best shot.
