Weekly Writing Update

Hey all, I’m back!

To everyone’s surprise, but none more than my own, I got so much writing done since the last update.  So much.  All handwritten stuff which I haven’t had the time to type up yet so I don’t know the word count, but putting aside about an hour every day to write, I averaged about two pages per hour.  It’s not great stuff, it’s all word/idea dumping, but I have a pretty good start to a draft, and the layout is almost done.

Of course, I say a lot of drafts go well, and almost none of them have ever been published, so…

More optimistically, I still got a lot of writing done, far more than I was expecting, which makes me absurdly pleased.  In my usual vague, non-committal nature, I’ll say this much about the story, that it’s a fairly new concept I’m experimenting with, and meta to the absolute max, but more realistic and less cracky.  It’s an unfortunate tendency of my brain that the tiny scientific part of it has a pretty loud voice and always wants the art and imagination to still make sense, so world building is absolute hell in addition to being absolute fun.

I’ll leave it off here for this week on that note, since I have some things to get caught up on, but with any luck (read: less procrastination), I’ll have another just as positive update soon.  See you all next time!

Weekly Writing Update

Heh, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Writing’s been on and off lately.  Not necessarily so much as a lack of ideas, just trying to focus on one long enough to get something out.  I’ve been experimenting this past little while with writing strictly chronologically instead of just jumping around and writing down disconnected paragraphs in the hope that they’ll be linked in the future.  It’s worked well in strengthening the quality of the writing, everything’s a lot more cohesive, but there is the ever-present roadblock of getting stuck on a single but crucial linking paragraph/scene/what-have-you.

Because my interests of the moment are eternally jumping around, I’m not going to make any promises about my current projects as yet, at least until I have completed drafts for them.  That may be a while.  Will be.  I am not a particularly productive writer.  This series will also take a two week hiatus starting next week because of prior engagements as opposed to my own forgetfulness and terrible procrastination.  I will endeavour to get as much writing done as I can though, so that when the hiatus is over, I will have something to actually talk about.

See you all next time!
