Hey Folks, how are we all doing today?

Today I have edited 13123 words of the vampire book, and added 179 words to it. That’s my next story that I’m working on. I’m being a little ambitious but I’d like to have it done by the end of the week, I’ve got two days off towards the end of the week so I can always smash through the last of it then. It’s a little under 60k words so I should be able to do it, despite a busy working week coming up.

I was going to start working through the edits from the editor on the zombie book, but I don’t feel ready. This is something I don’t want to rush. I’d like to let it all simmer and read it through again before making some notes, and then maybe again after that before I start making changes. The editor I use I’ve worked with before and she knows her shit, and she’s brutal without being an arsehole about it.

Writing has been shit of late. I’m struggling to find a flow with new words. Hopefully finishing Isolation was me breaking through that wall a little but we’ll see. I do think I need to refill my creative well. I’ve not had a lot of new content recently and I need to change that.

Okay Folks, I’m going to wrap it up here. I’ve got all that I wanted to do done today. I’ve got non-writing bits and pieces to do now and then a little chill out.

Have an awesome one, folks!

Hey folks,

I’m close to wrapping up a draft of the bounty hunter story I’ve been working on. I think I’ve found the theme for it now which will help when I come to edit it. I added a lot more detail in the last sitting I had with it. I’ve got a few inconsistencies and plot holes I need to work out, but I don’t think there is anything there that I can’t fix. I won’t know that properly until I’ve gone back through it.

With the other story that is set in the Penal Earth world I’ve not done any work on it this week. I’m going to get the bounty hunter one done first and then look at that one. The big difference between the two is the second one, is not even bare bones. It’s just the confused beginnings of a story.

Right, I’ve not got much time before I have to think about work. So, I’m gonna wrap this up here and get onto bounty hunter and see if I can get this first draft done.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Good Evening, 7th March 2021

Howdy folks! When I was in bed last night, not being able to sleep, I gave up trying and started writing and ended up writing 473 on a new story set in the Penal Earth universe. I haven’t read it since I wrote it, so it could suck! but who cares! everything can be fixed in edits!

I took time during my break to make some notes on the mermaid story, and it feels like I’m getting some good world building down. This story is beginning to fill out nicely, although its just occurred to me that I’ve not done too much on characters yet.

Anyway, after work I did a little work on the vampire book and added 182 words on that one while also carrying out edits. Not much, but I worked through a fair bit of what is a difficult scene.

Right, I’ve got an early start tomorrow. So I’m going to bed! Have a good one, folks!
