So now on to my projects:
1 Ashes and Snowflakes
Last week I finished mapping out act two. I should explain what I mean about mapping out an act. this does not mean that what I do is say chapter title and this is what happends. I do do that kind of out line but I break everything into scenes instead of chapters. however when I actually map out the act I start by quickly spinning though the scene. some times this is just dialog, sometime sit has a ton of thoaght clearing so I can get to what I actually want the scene to be, and some times this morphs into actually fully writtign the scene if I know what is going on and where it is going. So this story is so very close to being done. I need to go though and change the names, but with any hope this will be done before November 1st.
2 The Rescue
Well I am now fleshing out scene 10 of 15. although I think I am going to add a couple of scenes here to do some character building. because the plot of this book is Character vs Character I need to establish why these characters are at each other's thoughts. I also have gotten the over view of the first 500 years of history for this story written. this is probably 2,000 before the events of my story happen but it is nice to see the back story coming together.
3. The King of Sisilia
I have not worked on this project at all.
4. Gearing up for Nanowrimo
This is exciting! when I went out to write at high bridge, which I should do again before the weather gets too cold, well something like this because I was not exactly impressed by the smallness of the park. and that day I decided to do some prep work for nano. and it was a good time. I have decided to re work The Alchemist's Daughter. I have my major plot points I know where the story is going. I am going to do something a little different with this one by following two story lines. the story of Wren, the alchemist's daughter, and of Brook, a survivor of the last battle of the Range war. I have very high hopes this year for nano.
5. Top Secret
have not gotten much done here, but i have done some things on it...but I can't tell you much because it is a secret.
