A daily log of activities during the development of the Archen Strife Series.

At Least it’s Still Progress – Nanotechnology

Wrote two scenes today. One in the morning and one this evening. Not much, but it’s still progress. As long as I’m writing everyday. Also added a forum section to the blog at Focusing first on Nanotechnology. Not quite your everyday light conversation material, but exciting nonetheless. Hope to see some of you all come […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all! Yesterday turned into another light writing day. Managed to get a few paragraphs in to avoid feeling like I was taking a holiday hiatus. Redesigned the Archen Strife Logo too. Updating Book Cover designs and websites with the new logo. Going to enjoy some good quality time with family for the […]

Finished Catharsis Cover Art Sketch

Today has been a light day for writing. Finished another scene at almost 1300 words. Updated the cover art for Catharsis with an original sketch based upon the conceptual image used previously. The new art has been uploaded if you want to check it out. I ultimately want all the covers to include original sketches by […]

Another Two Scenes Bite the Dust

Today was a bit slower than yesterday. Finished off another two scenes. I can’t complain. Yesterday was a pretty big day. Can’t expect to write over 4000 words EVERY day I guess. It still means I’m right on target. Average pace is just over 2000 words per day. The main heroine just got back from […]

The Word Count Continues to Climb

Made some good strides so far today. I had a few errands to run and still managed to write another 2 scenes. About 2600 words worth of story. I have to stop for a bit, at the moment, but will get back at it later tonight. Hoping to get a total of over 4000 words […]

Wrapping Up Act 1

Act 1 is wrapping up nicely. Most of the character introductions and back story have been written now. The first pinch point and plot point have been incorporated. I’m excited to begin the first half of Act 2 within the next day or so. Starting to like how the character development has progressed. Looking forward […]

Supporting Materials List

Tonight I defined the supporting materials needed to help me with writing the story. I have posted the list here on the blog and will be working on each of the other documents tomorrow. I will have to go back through the first three chapters to capture the details of what has been included so […]

My Work Space

My cluttered work space. They say an orderly desk is the sign of an orderly mind. What’s an empty desk the sign of? I’ll take my organized mess. There’s a system to the chaos. At least I know where everything is. Locating it is another story.

A Fit of Inspiration

I made good progress with the paragraph level outline yesterday. Added single sentence descriptions for another 32 paragraphs. That’s another 4 scenes receiving more definition. This is very much an evolutionary process. It is developing pretty much just how I expected. While I plugged away at the outline, I decided to send off a rough […]

Working on the Outline

Off to an early start this morning. Going to keep plugging away at the outline today. Already have it at 21 Chapters, 91 Scenes, and the first three chapters written. Trying to get the rest of the outline down to the paragraph level. That will make sure that my writing stays on track and is […]
