Writing Update: May 26th, 2017.

writingupdateOne thing I never hear from fellow writers is, they never run out of ideas. As it is with me. If you look at all the WIPs I have, you could say I’m working on six at any given time. That doesn’t include scripts either.

WIP Novel #1: EarthenStone

I haven’t worked on this story since last month, so no update for it.

WIP Novel #2: Survival Rules (plaque/zombie)

No update.

WIP Novel #3: Cashe (cyberpunk)

No update.

WIP Novel #4: Untitled Alternate Reality

No update.

WIP Novel #5: Arlington Creed, Detective (Steampunk)

No update.

WIP Novel #6: Down Finnegan’s Hollow (Thriller)

Oh yeah, all over this one again. I haven’t touched it since my little incident with the bus stop sign, but it’s one of two that is complete (the other is my Gothic story that I put on hold because I’m not sure what to do with it). I’ve been working a lot the last month at ‘job that pays’, so I’m only able to revise a few pages at a time. I’ve also come up with a more plausible ‘death’ element. I’m also trying to make it more creepy. I want the reader’s mind to play tricks on them when the put the book down, or maybe jump a little when they hear a strange sound. I’m half way through the manuscript. If I keep working on it, two pages per day (as that seems to be all I have time for) I could have this revised by the end of June. I’ll have to go over it once more, to make sure the old ‘death element’ is not mentioned and that the new plot idea merges with the rest of the story. I’d be looking at the end of September as a deadline for both revisions.

Not even looking at my scripts. I am so behind on those.

Blogs:

I’m getting better with my blog post. I have idea’s marked out for the rest of the year. I don’t try to push myself. If I don’t have an idea, I won’t force it. I just let that post go and hope I can find something else to write about. I missed a few last month, but I think I got them all done for May and June looks pretty complete too.

How about you? How has your writing been progressing? Anything exciting you want to spill?
