I’m writing once more. And at a decent clip. 1,000 + words a day is good for me, considering everything else going on. For this I’ve been neglecting blog and video games. Last month I mentioned that the first draft would be done. It’s not. But I feel pretty good about the current momentum and energy and direction.
Artwork added this month by
Tasi’s a new artist for Silexare. Expect greatness from him.
The Unwithering – Tasi’s penciled interpretation of Lesovik.
The Surrounding Forest – One of my very favorite pieces Tracy did for ASH. This will eventually be framed and on my wall.
Nasties in the Woods – Tahkaan likes to cut stuff.
Entries added this month
Abandon Road – Not ‘street,’ as the map may suggest. Airheaded Suvinorians…
Vael – Here’s a long one. No artwork for this entry just yet.
Lesovik – The Unwithering.
I’ve been wondering how exactly to release the story I’m working on. What I’m leaning toward is a three-book set. Diventae’s story will be first. Then Odesta’s. Then the rest… from the point that they meet forward. I like the idea of releasing shorter books more often than huger books every year or two.
Also in the planning stages is a book of art by Mr. Tasi himself. I’m not going to go into further detail until he and I have ironed out more details. This will be the first of several collaborations. We’ve also mentioned bringing to life the “Mythic Bestiary of Tiasa” as mentioned in ASH. THAT would be amhazzing. (And by ‘would be’ I mean ‘will be’)
Only one blog this month. Again, I’ve been writing story. If I have to choose one, story will come first.
Jonny Atma – On a really good friend of mine and fellow rocker / video game soundtrack enthusiast. One day we’ll meet, then he’ll know I exist.
I’m writing in Turesia!
Still grinding at Destiny occasionally. It’s fun still. Intense. But the leveling system past level 20 could use an overhaul. It’s entirely possible to play for a couple of hours and get nowhere at all.
The Walking Dead is amazing this season.
It’s hard to continue to like SOA. Everyone just kills at will, not even for justifiable reasons, then lies about it. There’s a place for that, I think, but not the final season. It’s just making me not care.
I’m going to let Nanowrimo fuel my progress with the book. If I complete 50k words this month, I’ll have a first draft. There’s my most concrete goal.
See you guys
