Monthly Writing Update – Feb 2016

  • Posted on February 7, 2016 at 11:19 am

So, I’ve decided that, since I have trouble keeping up with one post a week, much less two, I’m going to switch to a Monthly Writing Update, which will generally be published on the 5th or so of every month. As always, this will include my writing progress, writing goals, reading goals, and various other goals that I feel like sharing with you guys. I hope you don’t mind the change in format, but honestly, I feel like this is a bit more… uh. Honest.

Writing Progress:

The Knight of Kuryle – Rewrite – 5,605 words – five chapters re-written

All other writing projects are on hold until I can get this done.

This week has been a bit rough for me. I’ve been forced to take part time hours at my job, due to massive panic attacks, and I’m worried about next month’s rent. However, I remain hopeful. Worried, but hopeful. The book is coming along well! We’re towards the climax of it now, and that’s always fun!

Also, I’ve started up a new gaming group, of which we’re making meetings every other week. This means I can still spend time with my nakama, and have plenty of time to imagine the world I’ll be playing in too!

Word Counts: 

First Book of the Kurylian Saga: 1.5 sections rewritten –

  1. Knight of Kuryle – 26,203 words – roughly two-thirds rewritten.

Kaimi Rowe Series: Seeker Born – Rough Draft – Restarted w/new concept

  1. Snippet can be seen in Bruises and Broken Bones

An Asexual’s Guide to Dating – Outlined – one section handwritten

Blog Posts:

None finished this week, sadly. Would love to see some reccomendations for this one!

Goals 

Finish rewriting Knight of Kuryle

After much fiddling, and quite a bit of fuss, the new element is fitting in quite nicely, and adds a detailed nuance to the story that is QUITE entertaining <3 I’m working hard not to have to extend my deadline, but if there’s anything this world has taught me, it’s that sometimes things happen!

Also, I’m looking into switching lines of work again. Call centering has begun to take it’s toll again, in massive migraines and almost-panic-attacks. I’m thinking about taking up fortune telling. What do you think?

Word Counts: 

First Book of the Kurylian Saga: 1.5 sections rewritten –

  1. Knight of Kuryle – 23,946 words – roughly two-thirds rewritten.

Kaimi Rowe Series: Seeker Born – Rough Draft – Restarted w/new concept

  1. Snippet can be seen in Bruises and Broken Bones

I’m so close, guys, I can feel it! Unfortunately, i had to add in a whole new element with the Knight of Kuryle book, which is testing my limits aMAZINGLY. Who knew I was so bad at dialogue?! But I’m doing my best to get it in there, because it’s SO important.

Word Counts:

  1. Knight of Kuryle – 18,604 words – roughly half rewritten.

As I predicted, my job is turning out to be more stressful than I had originally anticipated… I can’t write as much as I was hoping for, which is discouraging. I can, however pay my bills for the first time in months, and have food money, so that’s nice!

Kaimi Rowe Series: Seeker Born – Rough Draft – Restarted

Well, this is turning into more of a monthly writing update, honestly. But hey, if you learn one thing from me, it’s that plans change, and you have to move along with them. Anyway, I’ve been working steadily on rewriting Knight of Kuryle (working title), and I’m thinking I may have to extend the deadline for publication. Plots are expanding, and it’s tons of fun!

Wow, take a look at that date. It’s been FOREVER hasn’t it? I’ve been without internet for a lot of it, due to comcast stating that our ‘internet signal was leaking’. Whatever THAT means. So, a few updates to my personal situation.

I no longer work at Zales, and am in fact with a previous employer, AFNI, inc. It is a call center, but as this is a work-at-home position, I should be able to balance work and writing, which will be nice. I managed to write an entire 150k word manuscript while working for afni last time. This time, I hope to do a lot more than that! <3

Another thing, I’m getting really into Midori-type travellers notebooks? And I’m thinking about creating my own Book-dori, which is a really interesting idea! I’d use it for bullet journalling and note-taking and idea-writing. So there’s that.

OH! And I am now the proud owner of a turtle! <3 Her name is Hermes, and she doesn’t seem to want to move much… >.> But other than that, she’s a sweetheart, and I adore her.

You know, sometimes all you need for inspiration is a long car drive and someone willing to talk about the weird shit going on in your novel. I’ve recently figured out why the going is so slow on the Kurylian saga and… Well… I’m sad to say that I may have to completely rewrite it again. TAT

On the bright side, rewriting it will make it more interesting, and less exposition-y. Which is always good.

So this week has been a big win! Not only have I started writing again, I’ve really taken control of my finances, with the help of my tax return! <3 I’m proud to report my nest egg has grown from exactly jack-fucking-squat to $350, in two months! <3 I’m also getting new glasses and a new phone here soon. That’s going to be fun. ^.^

Here it is! My Weekly Writing Update!

This has sort of turned into a biweekly writing update, hasn’t it? I’ll admit, I’m a bit of a bad egg when it comes to keeping schedules. I hope you all aren’t too bored of me, or disappointed in me for that! As it is, I’ve been having trouble at work and at home, and just about everywhere, so there’s that. But! I’m not giving up! <3 I still plan to have my first book out by June!

And on that note, here are the tallies:
