Not always *very* productive, but stuff gets written.
As I say far too often: Some progress beats none.
Work on GoSH2 continues, if a bit more slowly than I expected. I’m into chapter 5, and having fun with some aspects of the story. It’s only the second novel sequel I’ve ever written, and this one is more episodic than Gunwitch2 (the first novel sequel I ever wrote), so I’m still learning as I go.
I’ve started receiving feedback from first readers of Gunwitch2, and conceptual work on the cover has begun. My plan is still to have that book released before Xmas. Before New Years at the latest (which is, you know, a whole week later ).
In totally unrelated news, I decided to pick up a pencil again and see if I can improve my drawing skills. Right now, I’m just practicing, working my way from faces to heads to bodies to action. Here’s a taste from this week’s practice sessions:
I think of it as “room to grow”.
My plan is to eventually tackle either a Web comic or maybe the graphic novelization of a story or two. Or both. Or neither. Maybe I’ll end up somewhere completely different. That often happens with me when I wander into “art”. Where I end up sometimes has only a passing resemblance to where I expect to go. I guess we’ll see when we get there.
