Another Quick Update

I apologize for dropping off the face of the internet again for the last month and a half. My wrist was flaring really badly and I had to further limit the time I spent on the computer.

The nerve conduction test found that I have cubital tunnel syndrome, rather than carpal tunnel syndrome. Similar sort of problem, but the compression point on the nerve is in the elbow and the symptoms appear on the opposite side of the wrist from carpal tunnel. That doesn’t...

And the Countdown Begins…

I was definitely tempted to put off this particular update until after the new year, to make it into a sort of year-end wrap up. But since I’m thinking about changing the way I do these progress reports next year, I figured I should stick with this format for one last time.

Here’s where all of my works-in-progress stand now:

  1.  Unnamed Shifter Story, based on a Japanese folktale. Original goal was to expand the story from 15k to 20k. Still sitting at 16k. Found...

Updating…. Please Wait… Updating…

As much as I hate missing progress reports, real life has been getting in the way–as it often does for everyone around this time of year. Here’s my current status:

  1. ¬†Unnamed Shifter Story, based on a Japanese Folktale. Original goal was to expand the story from 15k to 20k. Still sitting at 16k. Haven’t had much luck hunting down research materials for a certain plot element I wanted to add.
  2. Sci-Fi. Sequel to Bonded. Dev gets his own story and a woman more than...

Just a Quick Update…

I lost a full day of writing because of family plans–these are relatives I only get to see about once a year, if I’m lucky. But I did manage about 3000 words this week, all in “Dragon Quest.” I kind of wanted to get at least half of its first draft finished before I even think about tackling another revision on “Dragon Sacrifice,” just in case something comes up in the writing that will affect the timeline in the two stories. I don’t expect it to happen, but...

Still a Work in Progress

I didn’t want to post a report last week because to be honest, my lack of actual progress at the time was kind of embarrassing. I still haven’t done nearly as much as I would have liked, but for the sake of being accountable, I’m going to update here:

  1.  Unnamed Shifter Story, based on a Japanese Folktale. Original goal was to expand the story from 15k to 20k. Managed to add almost a 1000 words to this.
  2. Sci-Fi. Sequel to Bonded. Dev gets his own story and a woman...
