What are you working on right now?

10 years ago | Lizzy (Member)

Hi everyone,

The forums have been quiet, and all the "share your knowledge" posts have left me unable to participate due to a lack thereof. So let's chat.

What are you doing these days with respect to your writing?

I'll start: I'm working on final-round edits of our first eight chapters with my co-authors, which we hope to make public in the new year. The first three are ready to go live, which is really exciting. We're simultaneously writing chapters 40 to 45 in a first second-draft (they've been written before, but need to be redone from the ground up).

So how are things going for all of you?

    Well, my husband and I have struck an agreement. We've agreed for me to take the next two years off working a day job (I used to be a web developer) to write. So I'm doing my best to make the most of these two years!

    I'm working on the Tales from Love & War website. ( http://www.loveandwartx.com ) I don't have an update schedule. For one, my life is too hectic and for two, I don't publish anything until I'm sure it's as polished as I can make it. Sometimes that means I work on a piece for weeks before I let it go. Sometimes they're ready in a day. Alongside the writing I'm always tweaking or changing the illustrations.

    But even more time consuming is the paper series I'm working on. It's a series of six novels that take place in the town of Love & War, but where the website takes a broader focus of several different characters, the books focus on the Daylittle household and has a much more concrete, complex plot. (The website is a mix of plot, character sketches, and mundane things that happen in the tiny Texas town.) I hope to have the first novel finished around March/April next year. Right now I'm spending about 4 hours a day working on this novel.

    So, yeah, that's what I'm writing :) Fun topic--I look forward to reading what everyone else is doing.

    I'm working on the alpha draft of a short story. My goal is to finish the story by November 30th, but Version Zero went more slowly than anticipated. My serial novel, Ossia ( http://ossia.writingkaye.com ), is also going all right.

    And then Zeus went fursplode.

    I'm currently working on my NaNoWriMo novel. After I finished it, I'll continue my current works. Speaking of this, I decided to make extra endings regarding the romance between the characters instead of including them in the novel. You can read it at http://murazrai-for-nanowrimo.xanga.com

    Right now? Writing an update for my serial and really wishing I kept an update buffer. Also attempting to learn the basics of using UNIX, but that's less relevant. Distracting, though.

    @nanowrimo crew: You can do it! Good luck :)

    @amber: awesome! Your story is on my to-read list, but right now I have a stack of borrowed paper books to get through and return

    @isa: that sounds really neat - I wouldn't mind hearing more about that (maybe in its own thread?) a web-novel, web-video game tie in is one of my dream projects.

    @dary: aw! Hopefully there's a light at the end of the tunnel?

    Thanks for sharing guys! It's great to know that other people are out there toiling away too.

    @.... basically everyone XD

    So far it has been cool! When I get it a little closer to done maybe I'll do a little post with screen caps :3 Right now it's a nice way to get reacquainted with Flash design and programming which I have not used in forever >.>

    I'm working on Boat Story updates. I have a decent buffer (into December, but I need more). And I just hit a break, so I'm looking to make another poster, but it's not turning out as well as I had hoped.

    So... you know, same old stuff.

    Boat Story: kidnapped kids, mysterious maps, debt, tropical storms, pirates, sea monsters, family, tea.

    I'm working on an episode of DMIC and trying to get another serial fiction series (Lonely Planets) off the ground. I'm also trying -- and failing -- to find someone to do artwork for DMIC. I can do logos, and yeah, that needs to be done too, but drawing humans is too hard!

    May my words be balm to the hurting, and acid to the tormentors.
