Week of 06 March to 12 March
I’m back with the second weekly writing update. It remains to be seen if writing these will really motivate me to write consistently and within one project so that I have something to write about when I get to the end of the week.
Most of my writing this week was, as I expected, for Noble Child. I’m at about fifty percent, although it’s always a little hard to pin that down, since I don’t know exactly how many words the final story will be. This episode is, because of the specific conflicts I chose to help make it interesting, emphasizing some of the poor choices I’ve made regarding timing in the whole Blood Magic project. Still, I’m enjoying the episode. Being able to present events through the eyes of a new character (Arval), and play around with what he can do and how he’ll interact with the world and with the other characters is really refreshing, and I think brings an important element of new excitement to what might have been starting to feel like a series that was just sort of plodding through its final season.
Site-wise, I wrote a review for Rats in the Walls, and a very lengthy review for Bernoulli’s Fallacy. Those both won’t be live on the site until July, but you can read them right now on Goodreads. That dichotomy might be a good reason for you to go follow me on Goodreads, so that you can get updates about my new reviews. There was a lot to discuss coming out of Bernoulli’s Fallacy, and I intend to write some additional posts to further explore those concepts. I also worked on a post about energy storage.
Instead of doing more work on Verdon’s Tragedy, like I was supposed to be doing, I became oddly fixated with a little story idea I’ve been struggling with for years. I won’t say too much yet, but it’s a science fiction story, and I think I might have finally figured out how to make it work. If I’m right, and it keeps working, then it might make its way onto the site in a few months.
That’s all for this week. I’ll be back next week with another weekly writing update. Be sure to follow the site to know as soon as we post something new. As always, thanks for your support of IGC Publishing.
