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!
