Writing Update and A wee bit about Genre Scribes

Hi all! This week has been a hard slog…to no real progress. Well, none that moves the percentage bar. I’ve come across a few issues with my scenes in the form of wishy-washy scene goals. Up until this week it wasn’t noticeable. That was until I started working on the Character pass. It would have been okay; the characters all have scene goals in there, somewhere, and the story still flows and entertains. It didn’t become a real problem in my eyes until Monday when I was nearing the end… Read more Writing Update and A wee bit about Genre Scribes

Working the Asset – Update 2 June

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.

Deniable Unit 2 Progress Update: Oct 2

I’m now at 12% on my outline for Deniable Unit 2! Well, it’s been a while since I posted an update on my current work-in-progress (WIP). I started work on the intentional outline for DU 2, made a ton of notes that made total sense, and then went on holiday. When I got back to work a few weeks ago, those notes made absolutely zero sense. So, I’ve spent the last three weeks getting back up to speed with the outline, made a lot of changes, and now I’ve got… Read more Deniable Unit 2 Progress Update: Oct 2

Outlining: Deniable Unit 2

On Wednesday, I completed my intentional outline (stage two of three) for Deniable Unit 1. To give the outline a wee bit of breathing space, I’m now working on the intentional outline for Deniable Unit 2—work started yesterday. I’m working the same way I did for DU1: fixing plot, protagonists, genre, tone, and theme in turn. With today’s work complete, I’ve made a total of 7% progress on this outlining stage!

Deniable Unit 1 Progress Update: Aug 28

Less than a month ago I put up a little progress bar on my WIPs page for DU1. The bar was empty and looked like it was going to take forever to get to full. But, I promised myself that I’d keep chipping away at the job of pre-editing my outline, that even progress of one percent would get me there. Well, today, I just filled that little progress bar all the way up! I’m 100% done with my intentional outline for DU1. The story has transformed from a pretty… Read more Deniable Unit 1 Progress Update: Aug 28
