WIP Update – 17 May 15

Here I go and give you a glimmer of hope that things are going back on track only for me to go off the reservation again. While I haven’t made any story progress, it’s not like I’ve been doing nothing of relevance at all over the course of the past week and I might as well report on that. Besides more reviews, I’ve been working in the peripheral materials, particularly those of Junker Jorg and Nagareboshi Tennyo. In the latter case, my encyclopedia file was corrupted at some point in the two years since I last worked with it which had perpetuated to all my backups, so I had to start it all over again, reconstructing as many articles as I could from the timeline.

I’ve pretty well got JJ’s outline filled out and once I get all the chapters named, I can have a proper table of contents. On that note, I really need to do the same for Everyday Magic and TCotSL. Things to do to occupy my time. Hopefully I’ll get some actual story writing done this week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 09 May 14

I did a little more writing on Nagareboshi Tennyo. I think the premise would’ve made a fine JRPG fifteen or twenty years ago. Given how much JRPGs have been languishing in recent years, maybe it’d be good today too. There are some shades of Grandia and Lufia 2 for sure. Pardon me while I reminisce on my misspent youth.

I’m thinking about redirecting my focus to Tico4 next week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 07 May 14

I did a little more piddling around with Nagareboshi Tennyo. I don’t have a whole lot of the story figured out besides the basic premise, but it’s fun to play around with. I really enjoy the freedom the Cross Arc grants me when it comes to the setting. The original three Arcs have been so strictly codified that I have to work in rather specific limitations (all self-imposed, admittedly), but the Cross Arc allows me handwave just about anything. I know I should be focusing on Tico4, but I’ve got a decent lead already and sorting out the last bit of Chapter 3 is going to be a bit of a pain, which is why I’m procrastinating. To say nothing of what a terror Chapter 4 is going to be. So it goes. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 06 May 14

I worked on a short that acts as a prequel for KoG1 (actually part of a small series that gives a brief glimpse at each of the six main members of Mark’s party shortly prior to events of the main story). It’s primarily intended as an option to pad out the wordcount in case I’m optioned for publication and the current 60K is deemed insufficient.

I’m also piddling around a bit with the Cross Arc story Nagareboshi Tennyo, mostly just ’cause.
