As I approach The Posting of The Final Chapter of The First Draft of My First Ever Completed Fantasy Novel, “Chess With Agatha… And The Dark Fortress Of Doom“, it also marks The End of the First Half of 2012.
And The Beginning of a Whole Other Level of Work that needs to be done, in regards to what I’ve Written Thus Far within My “The Written Word” Blog.
Volume I – “Winter, Lust, And Wonder” – Self Published/In Book Store
Volume III – “Rain Shall Shine” or “Capture The Night” or Simply “Rain” – Awaiting Editing, and Cover
Volume IV – “Tales of Old” – Special Fairytale Inspired Poems – Awaiting Editing, Cover, & might combine with one of the other Volumes
Volume V – “Taken Heart” – Awaiting Editing, and Cover
Volume VI – “Shadows” – Awaiting Editing, and Cover
Volume VII – “Bereavement” – Currently Being Written
The Mind Chronicles – Possible Future Comic Book
Captain Fire 197 – Possible Future Comic Book
Darker Times – On Hold
Dark Rider/Tales of The Dark Rider – Trying to Secure Artist, My First Blog Story that I’m trying to Turn Into a Comic Book
Whisper Moon – Slowed down a bit on, awaiting Further Inspiration/Story Ieas. I do Like the Characters and Premise
Allure – Really enjoying Writing, perhaps a Future Book Project.
Haven’t decided yet what the Future of “Allure” holds, but for now I shall continue Writing and Posting it… With the Possibility of Doing something else with it in the Future.
I like The Story, Characters and Premise.
Paid To Play – “Paid To Play” is a New Writing Project that I was Experimenting with… As My First Dream, Before Film Making, and Before Writing, was to be a Professional Baseball Player… Something I never actually Tried to do, as I was brought up in a Remote Canyon Area with a Single Mom, and the Logistics just didn’t seem Possible. But since I was never really able to give this Specific Dream a True Go, I thought I’d Incorporate My Current Dream, Being a Writer, with something that I Once Hoped to Achieve. I wasn’t sure anyone would care to hear about Baseball (It’s not just about baseball, it’s about Characters), but I have had a Good Response so far, so I’m going to Keep at it.
White Jade (Comic Book/Screenplay) – Sadly, I’ve pretty much lost communication with the Original Artist who Drew My 8 Page Partial Comic Book.
I believe, for the most part, she’s too busy with her own Projects.
As far as the Screenplay goes, I haven’t pursued Screenplay Writing since 2005, but I do very much Like The Story, so I’ll have to see where I go with it from here.
Now that I’ve let go of the idea that My Sister will be the Editor of My Novella “I Died Once“, and have started trying to generate some Funds to Hire an Editor Via My “Kickstarter” Project, I feel that I should be able to Self Publish it, and Potentially Get It Into My Local Book Store in the next 6 to 8 Weeks.
So far I’ve achieved 47% of The Goal Amount I set out for to Hire an Editor, and I am Hopeful that I will Achieve The Total Amount by July 17th-18th, which is the Projects Closing Date.
I had slowed down on My Fantasy Novel “Chess With Agatha… And The Dark Fortress Of Doom” Writing while I figured out My Novella Editing Strategy…
Now that I have a Strategy for that, with an Established 6 to 8 Week Goal, I have found that My Time, Energy and Focus has been Freed Up to Complete My Fantasy Novel within The Month of June, which I had Originally Hoped for.
This Second Half of the Year should be both Busy, and Exciting… And with any Luck, and a Whole Hell of a lot of Focus and Work, I’m Hoping to Self Publish Both My Novella, and My First Ever Completed Fantasy Novel, by the end of this year.
Wish Me Luck
And as Always, Thanks for Listening/Reading
And for Your Support in General
