pyrostinger: They say the eye is the window to the soul (Default)
So the other night, not all that long ago, I typed the final word in Morph Class, part six.  In a way, this is a bit of a Thing for me, as this project that originally grew from a singular story last year turned into this massive thing.  And the word count for part six was in no less epic, clocking in around 8,100 words.  The estimates I was using was based off a 7,000 word story, and let me tell you that I was very surprised that the story ended up being so... wordy.  But in a way, this is actually a reduced count, as there are probably a section that could be expanded that I ended up not doing, because then I might have to do a SEVENTH part, which would probably be something short of ridiculous.  Maybe.  I don't know.  

Point is that I am DONE and happy about that.  I let it sit for a few days, now I'm gonna be going through and cleaning it up a bit.  I may, which is to say probably, will re-write the ending.  So far it parallels/channels a story in the source, but it still feels a little... awkward.  I mean, it's done, but I'm not yet happy with it, and as a consequence I may not be able to finish it by the end of this month.  12 stories is still on, and I have a few other stories I could get to work writing when Morph Class is done, though I may take a day to bask a bit.  Hopefully I'll get some nice feedback, because I really hope that people like Morph Class.

You know, sometimes I just need to get out of my own way and write.  Seriously.  I was kinda in a groove last night, even though I had to force it a few times.  Ultimately, I got down 833 words which I'm pretty happy about.  I was aiming to put out 500, and I've far surpassed that.  However, I shan't rest on my laurels, though I intend to put out another chunk of words for Fluffy so I have something Zel can look at as an update.  More to the point, Morph Class is looking like it may get finished before the end of the month, which... would be interesting, because then there goes a great big concentration of creative energy.

Not that there aren't other places to put that energy.

Just finished it last night, and got in the final 507 words over the last two days.  Feelin' good about this.  Now I want to at least set the foundation for part six for January, where I'll probably write that in earnest.  Though even so, there are a few other writing projects to complete, namely the trade... but hey, they'll come.

I plan to post it before the end of the year.  Happy New Year folks!

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.

It is... DONE!

Start: 6855 words
End: 7410 words
Progress: 555 words

Yep.  That's it and that's all.  Intended to cross the 7k barrier today, and little did I know that if I pressed on, I would be completing the story.  Man.  Time for a celebration, and a break.  Of about a day, though.  I wanna spend the rest of the month editing the fuck out of the story, then sending it out and putting in a few last changes while I get together the proposal materials for the story to be submitted.  I only got a week, though, less than, so I better finish this story up with the quickness.  Still, I feel good that it's done, even though I know ther eare some changes that I wanna make to the beginning and I want to make the end considerably less lame and probably a few more things need to be fixed to line things up with one another and...

...yeah, work to do.

End: 6855 words
Progress: 564 words/97.9%

Successss!  haven't mad the planned edits/re-writes yet, instead working on finishing off the story, then pumping in the other stuff.  The word count will no doubt swell because i'm pretty sure i'll be adding to the story.  And at this rate, i'll be overshooting 7k, which is nice.  But ultimately, i'm going to be needing some beta readers, and probably a new title.  As is, it's terribly generic, but then it's a working title anyway.
