Time for a quick update on Working the Asset. My goal for July was to complete Pass #3 (Premise). Amazingly enough, I managed to achieve that on Saturday–a whole week… Read more Working the Asset – Update 27 July →
I had zero plans of posting a progress update on Working the Asset until Sunday. In my last post, I said that I had the foolish goal of finishing the… Read more Working the Asset – Update 23 July →
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… Read more Working the Asset – Update 20 July →
All ready to add some meat to the outline. It’s time to break out the index cards! 😀🤓
Hi all! Our internet went on a major go slow, like slow-slow. I spent the better part of today getting it back up to speed, and thankfully it’s running smoothly now. Yay! On the non-yay front, I’ve run out of time in my workday and haven’t had the time to work on this week’s Genre Scribes. Never fear, Amy and Kelvin will be back tomorrow. Till then, stay awesome.
I’ve had my head down this week, getting more of the outline for Deniable Unit 1: Working the Asset fine-tuned. I’m now 80% done with the editorial pass for the plot (1 of 7 passes)! With every action step I complete, the outline transforms into a better, stronger, and more cohesive story. I can’t wait to see it fully formed and in stores! If you’re wondering what I mean by “action steps,” they’re from H. R. D’Costa’s Sparkling Story Drafts (affiliate link)–it’s a fantastic series on outlining screenplays and novels.

Life in a key worker household is a wee bit random at the best of times, but during lockdown? Crazy doesn’t quite cover it. I’ve been operating under the delusion… Read more Who Knew It Was Friday →
As it’s Jez’s last day of holiday before we go back to the craziness of his work schedule tomorrow, there won’t be a Genre Scribes: Friday Fiction post today. But, as I’ll be up nice and early (some would say it’s still night-time), I plan on getting the post up tomorrow. Until then, stay safe 🤗
