WIP Update – 22 Sep 14

Inspiration took me in an unexpected direction and I did some writing on the Cross Arc story Child of Promise. Also did a little bit of dialog for The Boy King’s Madness. Where will the whimsy of my muse take me next? Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 10 Sep 14

I did some writing on KniTwi, but most of the day’s work was done in the peripheral materials. I got an outline sketched out for KniTwi and also solidified the one for The Boy King’s Madness. A lot of work on the military ranking structure for the Celestial Kingdom duology, which involved adapting the New Earth Empire’s ranks to Chinese. Also worked on the patrician families of Gladius, working out some of the details of the various family branches and their history. It all may sound boring to you, but I love getting elbow-deep in all this worldbuilding stuff. I might have teasers for the Celestial Kingdom books up in the next couple days. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 29 Jun 14

Perhaps in part due to yesterday’s post comparing KoG to the Hero’s Journey, what writing I did yesterday was mostly in the peripheral materials with a Gladian bent, but I also piddled around a little in The Boy King’s Madness. I started adding charas to the cast and such, thinking more on the millieu of the kingdom during the time the story takes place. I’m getting a bit of a Game of Thrones-ey vibe off this one. There’s political intrigue and such in my other books, sure, but the tone that’s developing is different and that’s the best way I can describe it.  “Oh, great. I hope you aren’t inviting Mark’s son to any weddings.” Ha ha ha.

I kinda wish I’d finished Chapters 4 and 5 of Tico4 and I may actually devote a little time to doing that because I’m so far ahead on TTWC1. Finishing a chapter or two there would also be a nice goal for the week. Stay tuned.
