    Crawling Out From Under My Rock aka An Update Post

    It’s about time I did a writing update. I got out of the habit of doing updates, and I suppose the time away made it a wee bit daunting. But here I am, braving the blank blog page. A while back, I decided I needed a break from pre-editing Working the Asset (Deniable Unit #1). […]

  • 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 […]

    Working the Asset — Update 20th August

    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 update (ten days ago), I’ve completed Pass #5 — four days ahead of schedule 😃🥳 — and have made a start on Pass #6. In […]

  • Working the Asset — Update 10th 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 to deepen audience delight with genre sequences, dramatic irony, and making sure that the story escalates well. I’m now working on Pass #5. This pass […]

  • Working the Asset – Update 27 July

    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 ahead of what looked like a tight schedule! So, this morning, I started work on Pass #4 (Deepening Audience Delight) and am 7% of the […]

    Working the Asset – Update 23 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 second editorial pass of the outline by Sunday. Well, it’s Thursday, and I’ve done it! The second pass is complete. Woohoo! Here’s how the last […]

    Working the Asset – Update 20 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 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 […]

  • Writing Update and A Wee Bit on CRPS

    Writing Update and A Wee Bit on CRPS

    Last week I posted about getting stuck into adding some meat to Working the Asset‘s story skeleton. I’d fantasized that I’d have posted that I’d gotten that done by now and was on the way to editorial pass #2…I may have bitten off more than I could chew for the time I had allowed for […]

  • 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 […]

    Writing Update!

    It’s been a while (a really long while) since I’ve done an update post for my writing progress. That’s mainly been down to life getting in the way of writing. In the last month or so, I’ve taken steps to remedy that—pretty much bahookie in chair and head down kind of steps. What I’m Working […]
