Writing Update

14 Apr

Just knocked out a little short story (465 words), based on a simple misunderstanding and a famous saying.
Edited on the fly, ending worked quite well in my opinion.

News On An Update, It’s Good!

12 Apr

Remember THIS blog entry from me?

Had some good news today, not sure if I can share any details as yet so it’s just going to be listed as “good news” until I know that I can reveal more.

Well now I’ve had the Okay to tell you what’s occurring!

One of my horror stories has been accepted by The Sirens Call eZine! SQUEE!

Yes, horror isn’t a genre I am traditionally known for which is why this is a big deal to me. It’s not a paying gig but they are a good site and it’s cool exposure.

As yet the release date isn’t finalised, I’ll let you know when I find out.

Another Writing Update

10 Apr

Typed up my story, first use of my nice new document holder! 642 words, some rewriting on the fly.
Despite its title, NO dragons are featured within.

I think I’m going to eat some lunch (after I’ve made it) then look at finishing that story from Tuesday.
I know I wrote down a framework of how I wanted the rest of it to go, I wanted to be helpful to future me.
Past me is getting far too kind, check him!

Writing Update

9 Apr

I finished a flash short yesterday, 453 words.

The piece I started Tuesday is still in progress, I did nothing on it at all yesterday.
I’ve also got a finished short to type up that I hand wrote in bed early yesterday morning before I got out of bed.
I meant to type that up, got sidetracked.

With nothing on tomorrow I’ll hopefully do that type up and try to finish the other in-progress story.

Ray Bradbury Challenge, Week 15.

9 Apr

This weeks Bradbury Challenge story is now finished.
It was really easy to write, I’d had the idea just before midnight, typed down the outline and got straight to it as soon as the day started.

2357 words.

I’m pleased with both the idea, it’s implemenation and how it worked out.

And a good title too.
And I’ve also got a story I was writing early during Tuesday to finish off which should be fairly easy to complete as I know exactly where that’s heading as well.

More Novel News

7 Apr

After asking myself a question (answered by Google), I have selected Lebanon, Kansas for an important location.
Thanks for being the geographic centre of America!

I’ve also chosen O’Hare Airport in Chicago (thanks Wikipedia) as it’s the 2nd busiest airport in America and ranked higher in the International Airport list than the number 1 slot.

Now I’ve just got to come up with a new for the research lab.
Thinking about something Systems.
I’ll have to work on that first word, see what I can come up associated obscurely with what they do there.
Maybe look into Mythology for that one.

More work on the novel

6 Apr

This time before bed last night.

I came up with 2 new characters.
One was for the sake of balance, the other was to aid in interaction across a certain sequence of scenes.

I’ll type their details up a little later today.

Might look at writing my female protagonists first scene.
Not her actual first scene but her first appearance according to the linear timeline of the story.

Make of that what you will.
If I can crank out another 2000 words today, that’d be lovely.
But it’s unlikely.
Anything more than the type-up of the two character outlines would be great.
