pyrostinger: They say the eye is the window to the soul (Default)
Hey there, chaps and chapesses.  Been a while since I've updated, but there's been some upheaval, not to mention having home Internet access discontinued.  To a degree, I'm still adjusting, especially since I've started college as well.  However, never fear!  The writing continues!  No, really. 

1. I should be writing more, especially if I want to put out 12 stories by year's end.  That remains my goal, college notwithstanding, so hopefully I can pick up that pace.  Howevs, I HAVE put out a substantial chunk of Morph Class... I think I estimated it as about 43-61% complete last time.  Well, estimating that the chapter will end up between 5k and 7k words it's either about 70-98% done.  And really, I think those estimates are a bit too liberal.  If I were to estimate it just on feel, I'd probably say it's closer to the 70% mark, but even then I might put it at 60-65%.  There will probably be at least another 1000 words written before alls said and done, and while I'll probably miss my deadline of completing the story before the next time Gids has a birthday, this most definitely WILL be done before the end of the month.  Hell, it's going out before leap day.  That's my drop dead gate.  If not, then I've already failed to put out 12 stories this year, and I"m a bit of a month behind already!  So let's pick up the pace!

2. But part of the reason why I'm behind-ish on Morph Class is that I've started picking up more steam on the trade that I'm working on for Zel, which is tentatively titled Fluffy.  That may be an odd title, but if you know any of his works you'd know it's the name of the character, and it's a pretty appropriate title.  I'm probably going to stick with that, but between now and completion, things may change.  Who knows?  Anyway, I'm estimating that story to be about 4k, so that's about 58% done.  I've been updating Zel every now and then with the progress of the story, and so far he's been super happy with it.  Which is fantastic, especially since the picture he's doing for me is abso-fucking-lutely gorgeous.  I may post it to my own gallery, it's so goddamn good.  Most likely scraps, if anything, though.  Maybe I'm weird and/or a bad furry, but I like to promote my writing over all else, so if there is a picture posted to my account, it'll be in scraps. 

3. Additionally, I've got to get going on writing since I'm also planning on posting a few reviews to Anthroview, and submitting at least one story to Tales of a Neon Phoenix.  Those are to mags that Summercat is running, a sort of quarterly mag for the fandom.  In it, I hope to put a review for Out of Position, an old book, and Royal Tail, a comic put out by Zel and fellow writer Tredain.  Regardless, the blog will get both, and they'll be the next two installments of Red Eye Reviews.  The story I plan on putting out is a slice of life between the stars of Mouse Porn, because... I dunno.  I just got that idea of writing something for them, and then the opportunity came up for it to be published.  It's basically going to be quick and dirty (big emphasis on dirty) and hopefully fun.  And if I come up with something else, then I will maybe submit that as well.  I just need to get some more new ideas.  I think I can come up with those.

Also, I'm going to make an effort to bring this blog back to a bit more prominence, with estimates rather than straight up word counts.  And, of course, more Random Story Escapades.

Story: DarkZel Trade
Goal: something
Progress: 355 words
Total: 898 words

Awesome.  Got some stuff goin' on the D'zel trade, and I think it's motoring along.  Had a bit of an idea while I was off one of my many dog walks, and the idea is coming out pretty well.  Though honestly, I haven't pinned down the species of the protagonist/narrator (It's currently written in first person) and I'm wondering if I have a good feel for Fluffy yet.  Dunno, but time will tell and I can always prod the guy himself to see if it's at all accurate... I do strive for accuracy, after all.

Oh wow.  I haven't updated this thing in ten days, how incredibly shameful of me.  FEAR NOT for my one or so reader, I am indeed still writing.  Definitely definitely writing.  Actually, reminded of all the writing projects that I have tackled, not to mention the stuff that I've already done and... well, I've been pretty busy.  Well.  Not, but I have been doing some writing, which is the very point of this blog.

Yesterday was particularly productive, I think... not a whole lot of story writing done, but I did get a good chunk of writing done, to the tune of... well, 1,355 words, which is pretty rockin'.  A good chunk of that was in RP replies that come around every now and then.  But also, here's what I'm working most, now that the RP thing is out of the way.
  • Morph Class Yep yep yep.  Gotta be workin' on that. I'm still a little surprised that I managed to overthink such a simple idea into something novella length. I mean, hell, I might ask around to have it published but it's essentially a tome of fan fiction, and I don't think I could do that.  Still, to know that I'm capable of something like that (Granted over a very long period of time) is still something significant.
  • Trade with DarkZel - No title for this thing yet.  I do, at least, have an opening sentence in mind, so I should probably jot that down at the very least.  Not sure why he wanted to do a trade with me but OH WELL.
  • Will You Look At The Time - Ha ha, this is a.. weird story that I sorta had mulling around in my head until I felt utterly driven to write it and pumped out 400 words to begin with.  This is probably going to be the one I release first, ad it's... fairly simplistic, plus it's a Vince and Emma story.  
The funny thing about Morph Class is that I know I'm SO VERY CLOSE to releasing another part, and then there would be part five and then that's it.  So it's close and that's super cool and I gotta make up an icon for that.  Probably similar to the others, but yeah, go check 'em out on my FA page. 

In other news, I decided to check out SoFurry's beta site again, and this time upload something to it.  To be honest, it was not painful.  Perhaps I'll upload the remainder of my gallery there.. remains to be seen.

Two posts in one day?  Considering i was thinking originally of updating this blog weekly, this is unprecedented.  But hey, it's cool.

Essentially, this is what i'm either actively writing or actively planning.  The tippy top of the pipeline, as it were.
