Supernatural adventures for girls and women.

[writing] Project List, March 2014

ETA: Sarah has an excellent update that talks more about the wedding and the wrestling and the fun we had. Also, some writing frustrations: Update – March 2014.

Despite spending a week together, Sarah and I didn’t manage to write a single word on Monsters & Music, though we did do some excellent brainstorming and world building. However, since we’ve been back, our writing has continued as normal, and we are making good progress.

Also good progress is my daily writing, which is at 73 days in a row. Rock on.

Finally, I have started brainstorming a couple writing projects with another writer friend. It’s a very different process than working with Sarah, but interesting. It’s a very slow process, because I don’t have a lot of time outside of my other responsibilities (including current projects with Sarah, of course), but I love story brainstorming, so that’s fun.

Current active projects include:

1: Talking Dead

2: Monsters & Music

[writing] Project List, February 2014

Oh yeah, 2014 is definitely a busy year. Of course, February brings some excitement, because Sarah’s getting married next week here in the U.S. It will be the first time we’ve been in the same place since 2005, which is far too long between visits. Good thing we got a lot of work done before she headed out, because we likely won’t get a lot done until March.

[writing] Project List, December 2013

Last project list of 2013. This year has simultaneously gone by terribly quickly and amazingly slow. It’s been a strange, difficult year, and one of the best parts of it has been all the writing Sarah and I have been able to do.
