WIP Update – 27 Apr 17

So, before I head out the door on my grand adventure, a quick recap of recent progress. I finished my work on Chapter 26 of TSoA1 and then worked on two chapters that have yet to be enumerated. I decided I’m going to spend at least four chapters on Caradoc Freichfras and his gang. That should add another 10K at least. I may well cover St. Germanus’ campaign against the Picts as well. As noted previously, the chapter structure is about to get shaken up, so all updates will cease to reflect the actual chapters that were worked on, not that I imagine anyone is wanting that accurate a chronicle of my progress. Anyway, I’ll try to get at least a little writing done over the next four days. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 26 Apr 17

I got through Chapter 22 of TSoA1 and then went on to Chapter 26. Although I’ve got plans to keep me hopping over Golden Week, I’m going to try to pay some time and thought to revamping the story so we can have something closer to a respectable wordcount. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of casting the net wider for the characters and events from the time period, especially the ones who will factor heavily into the future of the overall narrative. As noted the previous chapter numbering will quickly become obsolete, but that isn’t going to bother anyone here too much, now is it? Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 25 Apr 17

I managed to get Chapter 28 of TSoA1 mostly done and made good headway into Chapter 22 as well. These numbers are likely to mean little in the very near future if I decide to go forward with adding a bunch of new chapters, but progress is progress. More to come. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 24 Apr 17

I did some work on Chapters 21 and 28 of TSoA1. I honestly don’t have that much left and I’m going to have to make a decision. Either I just leave this as more of a novella-length story focused primarily on Merlin and Uther or I cast the net wider to include more about other characters such as Caradoc Freichfras. I need to double the length for it to stand at the same level as my average novel. I need to think about it more. This is part of the reason I continue to delay the story’s debut on the site. A little more time and work and I should have it figured out, though. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 23 Apr 17

Well, I’m calling it. I put the finishing touches on the epilogue of CeleKing1 and that’s that. My 14th novel is complete. It all feels like it went by really quickly, but I guess that’s not necessarily a bad thing given all the projects in my cue.

I promptly went on to do a little work in the prologue of CeleKing2, but the real work won’t begin until next cycle. I’ve already got about 10K written on that book, so if its predecessor is any indication, that means about 50K more to go. (Honestly, I don’t even have the thing fully plotted yet, so that’s work to be done.)

Anyway, now it’s back to TSoA1. We’ll see how far I can get this week. Because I have Friday off, my schedule’s been compressed a bit, so I won’t have quite as much time for writing as usual. I should still be able to make decent headway, though. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 22 Apr 17

I spent most of the day just transcribing all my handwritten work, so I didn’t get much new writing done, though I did finish the dialog for the epilogue of CeleKing1. I just need to fill in a little of the narrative and I’ll be done. There will be some additional polish and revisions added later, but the work will be mostly done. I won’t quite announce the deal’s done yet, but we’re close. Stay tuned.

Apr 22 2017

WIP Update – 21 Apr 17

I managed to pretty well wrap Chapter 24 of CeleKing1 and get about halfway into the epilogue. One more push and I should be done. Because I’ve been playing so much BotW, I haven’t been transcribing my handwritten work, so I ended up spending all evening transcribing and still haven’t got it all on the computer yet. More fun to come. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 20 Apr 17

I continued on in Chapter 24 of CeleKing1. I almost have it finished, which means that all I have left is the epilogue. If not today, then definitely over the weekend I’ll be wrapping things up. Is everyone looking forward to it? I thought so. Stay tuned.

Apr 19 2017

WIP Update – 19 Apr 17

I managed to finish up Chapter 23 of CeleKing1 and start in on Chapter 24. Chapter 24 should be quite a bit shorter, so it may just take one more day to finish it. Stay tuned.

Apr 18 2017

WIP Update – 18 Apr 17

I’m continuing to make headway in Chapter 23 of CeleKing1. I think another day and it should be finished. Stay tuned.
