New Shows to play with your imagination! 

First off, this show isn’t new, but it is new to a lot of people. The Last Ship!

The Last Ship is based on the 1988 novel by William Brinkley, and it recounts the story of the crew of a US Navy Destroyer when faced with a global crisis created by a pandemic of a virus that destroyed most of the human population, after they return from a 4 month long mission to the Arctic, where they were escorting two scientists whose mission is to study the virus and find. 

The thrills of possibilities are endless on where this show could go, but the method for them to reach that length is going to be a test. The show feels as if it should end soon, but who know with TV series these days. As long as the ratings are good, then they can film whatever they want. Take Sulernatural for example. (No offense to the show, I like the show- but now it is just repeating itself like a more interesting call of duty game) 

I’ll spare you the long read and mention The Strain, Dark Matter, Kill Joys and the Brink!

Stay tuned folks, I’m making my comeback. 

60,000 Words and Counting!

As you may know, I hand write before I type. Three weeks of phase 2, typing and on spot editing, and I’m 60,000 words deep. 

I would normally be super excited about that number but after a few tweaks I added a better flow to 3 consecutive chapters that lacked it. That much I’m happy with it, and tonight progress will only continue! 

Once I reach my “credit teaser,” I’ll leak my new chapter one! *enter egotistical smile here*

Stay tuned folks!

No Apologies, Just Progress.

Yes, I have been gone for a little while, and it isn’t because I forgot about my blog. It came down to a simple matter of the responsibilities I had promised to complete. 
Just a quick update as to what I have been up too!

Per orders of my military contract, I was off playing soldier in the woods for two weeks. It was fun, long, hot, uncomfortable and a very good learning experience. I honestly look forward to doing it again the next go round. 

While I was off playing soldier, I had spare time to write out the short story “Rogue Intelligence,” but you won’t see that until after TMU book 1 is completely typed and edited. (To the fullest extent that is, because sometimes grammar mistakes can slip through the gaps.)

In regards to TMU book One, the book I was posting all the progress about before I left, I have been making serious headway in transition it from the handwritten into digital text. (Yes, I like to hand write my stories first. It allows me to fill responsible for personally crafting each letter for myself like artwork. I’ve mentioned this in an earlier post.)

While I can handwrite close to 10,000 words in a day I can only force myself to type between 2000-5000 a day before my mind or hands desire a break. Typing can really burn you out mentally while acting as a filter between your imagination and the text document. I don’t want to overdo anything in the ways of explanations or descriptions. 

I gave myself an extra week off after I finished writing the short story to mentally prepare myself for the overpowering duty of typing every day, sometimes throughout the whole day. Since starting this little escapade last Monday I have reached a grand total of 40,000 words typed, out of the 100,000 word goal. I just finished my Wednesday slack day of only 2000 words. (Which takes between 1-3 hours, depending on how fast I want to get back to enjoying my social life.)

I just hope I keep up this intensity! 

See, no routine apologies that usually follow my brief moments of radio silence. Just an update on all the progress!
I’m back, So stay tuned!
