I love update post day! It means that I’ve made progress on my WIP, and that I’m ever closer to my goal of releasing Working the Asset. Since the last… Read more Working the Asset — Update 20th August →
It’s been a couple of weeks since I did an update post for Working the Asset. Since the last update, I’ve blasted through Pass #4, the aim of which is… Read more Working the Asset — Update 10th August →
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 →
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.
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 →
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!
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 →
Still chugging along on my intentional outline for Deniable Unit 1. I just hit 80%!!! Not long now 😜
