Well it’s been a long while since I posted something.  It’s been about 2 months and I owe 18 pieces and 11 blogs after this.

Fortunately I have some ideas on how to bring the number of pieces owed down.  Considering how poorly I’ve been slacking I’ve got a large deficit to make up!  My plan is to do all the prep-work, such as character outlines, location outlines, story outlines, and everything else that I need to tell a story put on OPAP.  I already have character outlines 4 written up, done by hand, that I can put in.

In other news I’ve been working on a personal project and I have been making decent headway.  I far behind where I want to be, but I’ve made steady headway.  My goal is to have a rough draft of my short story done by May 10.  Since that’s 2 days away, and I’m not sure I can actually make that I might have to push it back again.  Thankfully due to some pre-planning I’ve been able to work at a steady clip, when I get myself to sit down.

This has been a pretty good lesson on fully fleshing characters out before I write, and then having a solid idea of major plot points and scenes that need to happen.  I’ve only just recently stalled out on the scene I’m currently trying to work on because I never hammered out the general idea.  Everything else I pretty much had sorted and just needed to take the ideas from general “this happens here” to actually writing the scene up.

Tomorrow I’ve got a couple of things I need to do.  I’m going to write, return the microphone I ordered (was several pieces I thought it would come with), figure out what I should order, order that, and then work on some more of worked owed to OPAP.  I would also like to take sometime tomorrow to bang out those 4 character pieces that I already had done for my short story.
