WIP Update – 11 Jun 17

I made some good progress on Chapter 6 of CeleKing2, more than enough to make up for not doing any writing on Saturday. (It would seem that this has become my new pattern, but so long as I meet my weekly quota, it isn’t so terrible to take a day off in the week.) Although I should be switching over to TSoA1, I have to admit to not feeling much enthusiasm for it, so I think I’m going to go ahead with my proposition to put the story on hiatus until the spark of inspiration returns. Now I’ve just got to find the right story to work on in the meantime. I’ll inform you of that decision next time. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 01 Jul 16

If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you already know what I have to announce. I completed the epilogue of JJ and in so doing, completed the novel, my twelfth in the nearly 15 years since I first really started writing. To reiterate my plans for the immediate future, I’m going to start in on TTWC3 and keep going through next week and from now on, TCotSL will be taking JJ’s slot in the cycle. As TCotSL is more of a novella, it should only take me a couple months to finish it. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to go on to “The Dragon Lady’s Dark Secret” or do something else. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I have ideas for sequels to both EM and JJ brewing, but I don’t know when I’ll put them in the queue. Something for me to think about.

As a side note, I’ve got a big translation project that’s come in, so progress may be on the light side this month. We’ll see, though. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 30 Jun 16

I made some more progress on the epilogue of JJ. I finished the dialog and just have to fill in the narrative and I’ll be done. A couple hours’ effort should be all it takes. Given how much of the week has been used, I’ll go ahead and work on TTWC3 through next week and then switch over to CeleKing1. I’ll be using JJ’s slot to work on “The Case of the Striped Leopard”. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 28 Jun 16

I managed to finish up Chapter 26 of JJ and did a little work on the epilogue. A few hours’ solid work and I’ll be done. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 26 Jun 16

I managed to finish Chapter 25 of JJ and started in on Chapter 26. I’ve decided to break with my standard practice and stick with JJ until I finish it. Any time I have left over I’ll roll into TTWC3. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 24 Jun 16

I again made a little progress on Chapter 25 of JJ, but I’m falling well short of my goal. Maybe I can blitz my way through, but it may be another cycle. We’ll see what happens. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 23 Jun 16

I made a little more progress on Chapter 25 of JJ. Not as much as I would’ve liked, but I let myself get carried away with the new event in GBF. Anyway, I’m really going to have to buckle down. We’ll see how that goes. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 22 Jun 16

I managed to make decent progress on Chapter 25 of JJ, but I’m going to have to step it up if I actually intend to finish the book this week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 21 Jun 16

I made a little progress on Chapter 25 of JJ. Not nearly enough to meet the day’s quota and certainly not enough to make up for Monday either. I’ll try to turn that around, though. I want to finish the book this week. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 05 Jun 16

I once again find myself having to make up for lost time, but I managed to meet my goal of finished Chapter 23 of JJ and even managed to go through and round out Chapter 24 as well. I think I can finish the book next cycle. In the meantime, though, I’ve got to return to CeleKing1. Stay tuned.
