Journal Journal: Work In Progress: A Time of Danger

I have split off a Time of Danger now; changing where Sylvia ends up in an effort to streamline the overall plot and solve a nagging world issue I had.
Sylvia is with the Sea Elves now getting an info dump.

Journal Journal: Work in progress: A Time of Shadows

I have decided to shelve the next Abe story and finish Tom first. If I am clever I may be able to link the two and get everyone on the same page--literally.

Journal Journal: Work in progress: A Time of Shadows

Time of War is done and I quickly redid Time of Danger; it wasn't as bad a first draft as I thought. I am working on the next story, which is what happens to Tom after Time of War. I have a general plot and some ideas but nothing concrete. If all goes to plan, he should up in Draenor.

I am also noodling over the next Abe story. After the Time sequence, I think its time to return to him to advance the whole plot forward.

This draft is really oooooooooold. I'm about halfway done, however. I did find the most recent revised Tom parts which has sped up the process considerably.

Journal Journal: Work in progress: A Time of War

I did some minor editing and submitted The Black Sword as a novella to Chippewa Publishing, a house that specializes in this sort of thing. I got the whole thing off this morning. Now I am looking at A Time of War. I think this one will stand alone as a novella as it's 20,000 words by itself and will be a bit longer when I am finished. I'll re-add The Tom parts to it so that it all stands alone, leaving Time of Danger and the Tom shipwreck story to a third book. I am not doing any major revisions, I dont think.

Journal Journal: Work In Progress: The World at the Edge of Time

Yes, I know I have a half dozen stories going but this is what I do between stories, noodle until something clicks.

This one is slightly different; it's a project I have been tinkering with on and off for while. This is just some work, making another attempt at revising chapter one, the first few times didn't come out so good.

Oh I also decided that this one will be a prequel to a big massive Epic Fantasy I'll write later. This story takes place in year 852 while the big bloated fantasy will take place on or about 1000.

This way I'll have the world fleshed out before the big action begins.

The ship has disembarked and Alurm is learning about sea legs and will soon leave the city.
I'm not sure if this story will be a novella or a short novel. I'm not worried; it should be an interesting tale and fun to write.

Journal Journal: Work in progress: The Knight-Champion

I'm not sure where I am going with this world. I did a map of a world and basic history and decided to explore the culture of one of the nations, Dragonia. Then I started writing a story about a boy in Dragonia and decided he will be the nation's next Knight-Champion, commander of the nation's army, etc. He only has to slay a dragon to prove his worth.
So I dunno how long this will be. Into chapter two. Alurm (the hero) has boarded a ship to begin his journey.
