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

Sensation

I'm struggling to find something that hasn't been said already. I know there's some string of words that wants to be said but it's all so familiar now. Honestly, I'm having trouble pinpointing my ideas for this post after watching the Sense8 finale this morning, and, just by the way, its brilliance and complexity cannot… Continue reading Sensation

Back into the Action

It's been a weird week. Weird doesn't even begin to describe it actually. I found a new side of myself that I didn't know existed. In a way, it left me kinda dumbfounded. And I basically surrendered to a new set of ideals for the whole week completely unintentionally. I realize I'm being overly cryptic… Continue reading Back into the Action

Running in circles

After another week of brainstorming and genuinely making notes, I've been hit with a harsh reality. My whole philosophy of letting the story tell itself can only get me so far. Imagine that. I've reached a point where even my protag has no idea what happens next. So now I'm trying something different: letting the… Continue reading Running in circles

Progress tho

Finished the draft of chapter nine last weekend. Using an unreliable narrator on top of increasing amounts of metafiction is challenging, to say the least. But I'm sorta content with how it's turning out. I think I want to get the story's skeleton on the page before I start seriously considering big changes, so I'm… Continue reading Progress tho

We Back At It

Finally finished chapter eight. And it's a long one. Probably too long but I'm not worried about that right now. Point is: it's done! I won't lie, one of the big reasons why it took so long to finish this one in particular is that I have a penchant for procrastinating. But the subject matter… Continue reading We Back At It

We Goin’ Clubbin’

So I put together a small book club with a couple of my friends probably about a month ago. But we're only calling it a book club because we only discuss my book and my book only. Kinda just happened out of nowhere. I was talking to both of them individually on the subject and… Continue reading We Goin’ Clubbin’
