Functional Friday

I need another three or four hours of sleep, so this is going to be a pretty light day. I did want to be sure to once again publicly shame myself though, as it seems to be serving the useful purpose of keeping me on task.

  • Lukas & Nan is currently 11% done. I realized I’d started my first scene too far into the plot, so I’ve been doing a lot of structural work and not throwing a lot of words on top that I may need to change down the line.
  • My serial project has been further fleshed out. It’ll be a story in four parts, and it’s my intention to finish the first half before putting anything up. I feel like the format is solid and the story flows like water, so there’s really nothing to complain about here. I’ll get a word count together for next Friday, but there’s no real way to guesstimate how much is complete because of its more freewheeling nature.
  • Lovely Alex has been doing sketches for the gag comic, but it’s a tough haul as we’re swimming in babies over here. Still, things are moving along slowly – we’ll see how the Gods Of Slumber feel over the course of the weekend.

Functional Friday

Been a while since I’ve done one of these, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been getting things done.

My major focus, Lukas & Nan, is currently at 8.5% for the first draft. I’m pretty pleased with that. Serial 2.0 is currently in the most gooey of embryonic phases, but the broad creative work at the beginning of a project can be the most exciting. The gag comic has sort of stalled, mostly due to a series of funerals which really shook out the funny around here. Hopefully we should be able to get back to work on that in the next week.

New Year's Maintenance Notes

I haven’t been posting any Functional Friday info lately, mostly due to baby and holiday madness.

I haven’t been useless though, I’ve been attempting to putty in the stray moments with writing, a process which is actually going fairly well. I’ve had to toss the idea of the serial as it stood – I still believe it’s a great idea, but I don’t think I have enough ignition-point eyeballs to make it work. If I happen to get some people clustered around me who care from the get go it might fly, but without that support it might just come across as too messy to get into.

I still have plans to generate some kind of serial project, just not the one I’ve been working at the last couple of months. More info on this when my brain provides some.

In the mean time I’ve been working on another piece, lets call it Project: Lukas & Nan, and it’s chugging along nicely. A bit pulpy, but sometimes that’s how I like it. It’s approximately 2.5% done. That may not sound like much, but Rome, yadda yadda.

(Also, Jessica May has an interesting theory about Tiger Woods and his Dad, if she ever gets around to posting it.)
