It’s Sunday morning and I’m awake before 8am
So I thought I’d write a blog post, seeing as I advent done it for a few days. So here’s a little update on where my writing endeavours are currently at.
Project Apollo is moving along nicely. I started typing up the hand written chapters that wrap up the end of the novella on Monday and I got around 500 words done both Monday and Tuesday nights. I was absolutely shattered Wednesday after a busy day at the day job so I took a night off. Then Thursday and Friday I knocked out just over 1100 words on both days. I have also been doing more handwritten parts for the story as well. There are a number of plot holes we have which need a bit of attention so I have been working on those as well. This has been good because I’ve got my head truly into one of the characters who, although only has a few small parts in the book, they are rather important.
Owen and I have a lot of plans for this universe so we’re trying to bear that in mind as we write this. Each story will be a stand alone story but each will tie into the universe that will be launched by Project Apollo. I really want to tell you all more but Owen will kill me so I’m going to keep quiet. I am going to say that even when we have this one well locked down I’m not sure when it’ll be released. As this is going to be the first of what will hopefully be many stories in this universe we want to get a couple of stories written and locked down before we start releasing them and I really want to find an artist who not only me and Owen click with but will be happy to do all the art work for this universe so although each cover will be different they will all be similar. There’s a couple other little signature things I want to include in the artwork, so that will take a little time.
This brings me onto a topic I do want to discuss quickly and that is when I publish something, whether its a solo project or something with Owen or Chrystalyn I want it to be as tidy as I/we can make it before it goes live. I know it’s all but impossible to publish something perfectly, hell even the big publishers have typos in what they release but I’m going to try to make sure it’s all but spot on.
I have great Beta Readers who will pull me on anything that is not right with something that I write so I have no excuses there.
Right, back to state of play, all other projects are on the back burner till this draft of Apollo is done although I am still having ideas which are being noted down as they pop into my brain so Im not going to run out of anything to write for a while.
I do know what I want to work on once this draft is finished so thoughts of that are creeping into my mind but I’m writing them down and forgetting about them because Apollo needs to be wrapped up.
