March Writing Update

So much for the best-laid plans… I’ve been battling a persistent bout of increased fatigue and immune system symptoms (which I refer to as phantom flu, and which ironically I was planning to write a blog post about this month). That’s taken up most of March.

Celestial Chronicle

Managed about 5k words of Idiot Nerds Go On Dates But Don’t Realise They’re On Dates (very important content). Sincerely wish I could draw well enough to do a manga-style page of Shoichi and Satoru having their simultaneous OH NO HE’S HOT moment.

Goals for April: I think I’m going to try a min-max approach: minimum goal is writing chapters 6 and 7, stretch goal is getting to chapter 10.

The Other Side of Twilight

Suddenly realised I’d taken a wrong turn and needed to rewrite and rethink slightly. Which is fine but has slowed me down somewhat.

Goals for April: Finish at least one more chapter of Blood and Promises. Hopefully finish the whole thing and start work on The Road to Hell.

Starborn

Been working on the general worldbuilding and specifics of immediate backstory. Figured out several major things that were holding me up. The nice thing about worldbuilding is that it’s possible to do it while curled up in bed feeling too unwell to sit at a computer, and I can jot down notes on my phone. This month I’ve gone from “not ready to write anything set in this universe yet” to “okay I just need to finish coming up with names for the technobabble and characters and then I can jump in”, so that’s awesome at least!

Goals for April: maybe write a few prompts or something? I want to get CC back on track though, so we’ll see how things go.
