Progress 9/23/15

Tazu Saga:

The content edit notes came back, and then i tossed mine back again, so now content is all done. Book is officially in the que for line editing, but it’s apparently a busy time of the year and RAP is doing very well, so not expecting it to get to line editing in 2015. Which means release will definitely be no sooner than spring 2016. Did get the first draft of the new cover though, and i gotta say, it’s going to be spectacular. 😉

Book three in that series is now above 110k, slowly plodding along. Few plot hole issues at the end i need to sort. Hoping to keep it under 150k. Might save the big push to finish this for Nano in November.

WW:U3

Made some pretty big progress last week on the outline of the book as a whole. Illyan plot seems to be set, so now i just have to buckle down and write the thing. Will need to add in a few more social scenes and class stuff. While this makes me more hopeful that this can get done, its still a very, very big job. I’m not anticipating a quick finish.

Still in a holding pattern waiting on MJ. Scribbling a few notes here and there when i think of things.

Reading:

Erica Lucke Dean’s Splintered Souls. really, read this, really. SO GOOD.

CoG– “A Wise Use of Time”. A fun one. Recommended.

Home front:

Started teaching again. Glad to be back with the kids, but my back is starting to get upset again. Might need to resort to wearing the brace in class. Ick.  My hands and wrists are doing well. Hope that continues. Also been beading up a storm– my coffee table is covered in beading stuff on one side and Way Walkers notes on the other. 😄 First big craft fair is on Oct 3rd– only doing a few this year.

Otherwise, I’m doing well. Fall clean up in the yard has been interesting, and my dog an i have been enjoying the cooler weather with long walks. I’m also tempted to buy all of the pumpkin spiced things.

Progress 9/4/15

As promised, this is me trying to update more often. 😉

Tazu Saga:

I finished the content edit notes for the second book last week and kicked it back to my content editor. Waiting on them to come back.

Book three in that series got a few tweaks, i think i added about 1k words. Not much, but important stuff.

WW:U3

Got an outline for the first chapter of the story. Precognition class, followed by deciding on a course of action for dealing with Illyan, followed by a birthday party, followed by recruiting help for said illyan-plan. After that, it gets hazy. 😄 however, i’m fleshing out those early scenes and getting back into the rhythm of *choicescript writing. good times.

Way of the Red (WoR)

In a holding pattern waiting to touch base again with MJ. Scribbling a few notes here and there when i think of things.

Reading:

Decided to add this for fun. Read through two RAP books by Erica Lucke Dean– To Katie with Love and Suddenly Sorceress. Recommended if you like romantic comedies in book form. Good stuff. Also picked up CoGs “So you’re Possessed” and “A Wise Use of Time”. Haven’t read Time yet, but Possessed was a fun little romp. Little limited with the replay value, but the story so far has been very creative, and i’m likely to pick up the sequel when it comes out. Recommended.

Home front:

To be honest, its been a rough couple of weeks, with a lot of ups and downs. Trying to gather myself before i start teaching classes again next week. Also doing heavy beading work for the craft fair season which will officially start for me and my partner on Oct 3. Hoping my wrists will hold out, but over all my pain’s been MUCH better since the early summer. (part of why i’ve been writing so much more again– yay!)
