WIP Update – 10 Apr 16

By removing all distractions and focusing on nothing besides crossing the finish line, I managed to finish Chapter 25 of EM and with it, the novel. That makes eleven completed novels thus far. Clocking in at 55K, it’s a bit on the light side, but I’m not worried about the wordcount so much. CeleKing1 is going to take EM’s slot. Next go around, I plan on getting the outline squared away so I can move forward with a better idea of how to get from Point A to Point B. Before that, though, I’ll be switching over to TTWC3. Finishing Urgill’s section may be a little overly ambitious, but I’ll see what I can do. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 09 Apr 16

After making such good progress, I go and fall off the wagon for a couple days. Work was a big part of it and I did get some reviews written, so it’s not like I completely frittered away the time, though I will admit to getting drawn into the mobile game Granblue Fantasy after finding out about it from work. I managed to pull myself together a bit and make a little progress on Chapter 25 of EM. I’m going to try to get it finished before the switch, but I’m not going to make any promises. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 05 Apr 16

I made some progress on Chapter 23 of EM, enough to make up for not doing any writing on Monday. I estimate it’ll take two or three days to finish the chapter and then it’s a matter of how long Chapter 25 will turn out to be, which I don’t even have any solid estimates for at the moment. Still, the goal is to be done by the end of the week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 20 Mar 16

I had two rather hectic days in which I wasn’t able to get any writing done. (What little productive time I had was divided between catching up on my backlog of reviews and rolling out the update post.) Unwilling to let a full three days go by, I sacrificed some sleep time to make a little more progress on Chapter 23 of EM. I fell short of my goal of finishing the book this cycle, but I’ll get it next time for sure. Now it’s time to switch over to TTWC3, which will begin its serial run next week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 17 Mar 16

I made a little progress on Chapter 23 of EM. Not quite as vigorously driving forward as I have in the past few days, but now that I’m done with work for the week, perhaps I can drive on ahead and finish the book. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 16 Mar 16

I managed to pretty well wrap up Chapter 26 and the epilogue of EM. If I was going chronologically, that’d be it, but I still have Chapters 23 and 25 to go. Finishing the book by the end of the weekend is entirely within the realm of possibility, so fingers crossed.

In other news, I’ve decided that besides kicking off CeleKing1, I’ll also be resuming “The Case of the Spotted Leopard” in December. The Ticonderoga Detective Agency series involves comparatively short stories which only amount to novellas or novelettes, so TCotSL will wrap the following January. I’ll probably follow it with another If Arc story, either “The Dragon Lady’s Dark Secret” or something else.

Well, that does it for gazing into the crystal ball. More to come. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 15 Mar 16

I made some good progress on Chapter 26 of EM and also wrote a little on the epilogue. It won’t take much to finish up the former. I’ll probably go back to Chapter 23 after that. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 14 Mar 16

I made some progress on Chapters 23 and 26 of EM. I’ll probably finish the latter before the former because I know how it ends. The real tricky one will be Chapter 25, which I only have a fuzzy idea of where it’s going. It’s bound to pop up before the week’s out, so fun, fun, fun. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 28 Feb 16

Well, I managed to surprise myself by buckling down and finishing Chapter 24 of EM and then adding a few lines to Chapter 23 and the epilogue. If I can repeat progress like this week’s next cycle, I’ll be done with the book. It’s probably going to weigh in under 50K when it’s done, but I guess I don’t need to be obsessing about wordcount too much. Now it’s time to switch over to TTWC3. It’ll be launching soon and I’d like to have at least one more section done before then. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 27 Feb 16

I made a little more progress on Chapter 24 of EM. I’ll probably fall short of finishing it before I switch over, but this has been such a productive week that it won’t bother me too much. While I’ll probably start up CeleKing1 after I’m done with EM, I still need to decide what will take JJ’s place when I’m done there. It’s either going to be in the If Arc or the Earth Arc. Both of them could use some love. I’ll let you know when I have it figured out. Stay tuned.
