Should probably start giving these posts different titles. Hmm.
I haven’t done any writing recently, but I’ve been plugging away here and there in the two weeks since my last post. Gave one of the longer fantasy stories some late stage editing, made another pass on the short story collection, and rewrote the ending for a standalone story.
I also spent a few minutes on Secret Project #1, but only enough to remind me how much work it’s going to need. As much as I love the idea of it, I’m well aware that it’s more in the “stuff I’d do if I won a million dollars and retired” category than the general hobby category. At least it’s fun to work on, and that’s what really matters.
Did some editing work tonight on a few stories, and surprised myself by making good progress with the limerick. It’s still an abomination to the senses, but I’m a little less ashamed of it than I used to be.
Wrote a new scene for an existing story I’ve been working on, then did about 2k words of a new story. It’s a very very rough first draft (I’ll be surprised if more than a handful of sentences survive the editing process), but I like the core idea quite a bit. It actually ended up evolving into a plot identical to a story I started and abandoned years ago, but with a much different narrative style that succeeds where the original fell flat.
I’m hoping to find some time this weekend for writing, maybe chip away at some of the longer stories.
There will probably be more content here at some point. Probably.
