Coming Soon: Serialized Fiction

Friday, July 31st, 2009

I’ve decided to try and  experiment with serializing some fiction here on the site.  My first offering will be a stand-alone fantasy story set in the same world as Miracles, the novel I’m currently revising. If it goes over well it may become a regular thing.

The story will be posted in four or five segments, one each Friday.1 Enjoy!

“Miracles” Type-in Update (Late-July)

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009
type-in
56/108 scenes

Last week was pretty much a wash, at least until Friday and Saturday where I blew through two chapters. Since then I’ve been ensuring I get at least some progress every single day, which has had a remarkably positive effect on how I’m feeling overall.

The change in progress1 is probably a bit deceiving in that I had a few scenes that were combined, and few that were added, leaving me with one less scene total, and only six scenes further along, even though I know I actually revised more that that.

Enough about me. How’s everyone else’s writing going?

  1. On a technical note, if you’re reading these posts on http://jasonpenney.net/ directly, but are seeing it some other way, I’m testing an update to my ProgPress plug-in that should make the progress meter show up at the top of this post. I know it works in Google Reader, but if you’re using something else, I’d love to know if it’s working or not for you. []

Quick “Miracles” Type-in Update (Mid-July)

Friday, July 17th, 2009

50/109 scenes

Between work being crazy, computer issues, and lots of fun family summer day-trips, progress has continued at it’s rather glacial pace. I’m just shy of the halfway mark now, and I think I’ll have time this weekend to push things along.

Update: Looks like I’m working Saturday, so no I won’t push things along this weekend.
