The End in Sight

So far so good. I'm on track to finish this chapter either tonight or tomorrow. Then I'll be ready to jump right into the next one. That being said, the chapter I'm working on was already halfway done before I started writing again, so I guess we'll see how well I fare next week. Earlier… Continue reading The End in Sight

We Back

It's been a busy week of trying to focus on editing but I'm finally done. And now I can get back to cranking out the rest of the novel. Most likely 5-6 more chapters. Yay! The editing process was actually kinda rough. Almost every time I found something that didn't agree with my current stylistic… Continue reading We Back

Bouncing Back

I'm back in my writing groove! We did it! Yeah! Honestly, the whole experience feels much better. I've started off rereading from chapter one. Unsurprisingly, I found a lot of things that could've been written a little better, so I wrote them a little better. This is something that happens virtually every single time I… Continue reading Bouncing Back

Write Tunes – Shuffle

It's been a weird week. I'm making a lot of headway, but I guess I wanted to quickly talk about trusting the reader. For example, my protagonist is more focused on other things and doesn't pay a lot of attention to mundanity. In this situation, I don't feel like this needs to be stated. It's… Continue reading Write Tunes – Shuffle

Destiny Islands

It's been probably about a year since I posted this the first time. I've made a lot of changes since then and I guess I'm just trying to find out if there are still more changes that need to be made. I've said before that I think the first chapter is the most important for… Continue reading Destiny Islands

Lightbulb

I think I'm going to refrain from progress updates until I get closer to the end. There's just something about setting unrealistic goals publicly on a frequent basis that just bums me out. It bums me out when I don't meet them. It gives me this intense feeling of apprehension. On one hand, I think… Continue reading Lightbulb

Toeing the Line

I constantly struggle with how obvious a symbol should or shouldn't be. And most recently, I've been paralyzed with indecision. There's a very blurred line between a totally missing the message and so obvious that it can come off as offensive. Admittedly my reservations of tackling a turbulent topic are probably a contributing force in… Continue reading Toeing the Line

Something to Hold on to

So I got really busy this morning and now I'm late posting this, but I'm still working on the novel a bunch so I'm just going to keep it brief today. I've been thinking a lot about how descriptive I need to be in my writing. Since it's from my protag's POV, I've taken the… Continue reading Something to Hold on to

I just can’t do outlines

Lately, I've found that my chapter outlines are just completely pointless. Almost to the point of being self-defeating. I know I've talked about this before but it's actually kind of funny how much of a departure I end up taking from my outlines now. I think it's because when I'm writing the outlines, I'm thinking… Continue reading I just can’t do outlines

Hitting Record

During Ubisoft's press conference, I was introduced to really ingenious site called hitRECord.org by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He introduced it as a way for the creative side of the gaming community to contribute to an upcoming game: Beyond Good and Evil 2. Immediately I was like, sign me up. And I did sign up. I'm not… Continue reading Hitting Record
