It’s been a few weeks since I last updated on my progress on Working the Asset. As I mentioned in a previous update, I’m writing my outline with my non-dominant hand (lefty) owing to CRPS in the right one.
Fast-forward 27,000 words, a stack of index cards with writing so small only a fruit fly can read it, and a terrifying amount of coffee and this is what you get:
I’m finally, finally done with the first editorial pass (Plot). And, now I’m working on the second pass which is for story structure. Luckily, having studied screenwriting at UCLA Ext’s Writer’s Program, I have a good grasp on story structure. I started work on this pass yesterday and am already 30% of the way through!
My really stupid goal is to complete this pass by Sunday… I say stupid because there’s a lot of reading–I’m a very slow reader–and a few techniques to implement that I’m unfamiliar with. (Yes, Grammarly, I’m going to leave that preposition hanging out there, right at the end of that sentence. 😋)
For now, it’s time for a break (playing co-op Halo: ODST with Jez! 🥳) I’ll leave you with the update photos I never got around to posting.
Thanks for reading, and take care.
