What's up my friends?! Well, one day of my work week is down, hopefully only four more to go! Anyway, I thought you'd apprecaited an update of my progress from the weekend. I've made some great strides on my two current projects!
First, the rough draft for chapter 6 of "You Brighten My Day" is done, and is currently awaiting editing. Before editing, the chapter has made it to 11,720 words, a bit longer than I expected, and considering I pushed two scenes over to chapter 7. It's a good thing I did. I'm pleased with what I have and look forward to editing it, but it may be several days till I get around to the editing. I do apologize in advance, but I've been hit by a forceful wave of creativity, which involves the next part of this update!
Now, I've finally started "For Whom She Sparkles" and from Sunday to Monday night, I've made some great progress already! Right now the story is sitting at 4,139 words and there is far more to come! I even reviewed the 2,242 words I started with last night and was very pleased with how things flowed! =D In fact so far whenever I expect to hit an obstacle, I end up overcoming it before it's even a true concern. All I do is take a break and give my ideas some thought or like yesterday, I felt I was about to be stumped. While I was showering, a epiphany came to me and I saw how to do a scene before I even had to question myself as to how I wanted to do it. And best of all, I found a beautiful new song to use in this in addition to the other one I hinted at. This new song had the kind of lyrics and message I've been searching for and will work so well with this story! I can hardly wait till I get to that part, but I also am looking forward to resuming where I last left off! So, this story is going to be even better than I originally thought. The story is shaping up great and it's only just getting started. I've got two parts planned for this and am currently projecting a total of 10,000 - 12,000 words. Should this story be well received, I am seriously considering turning it into a multiple chapter series.
I know some of you may be wondering and even asking, "Jaydex, why are you being so cryptic and mysterious about this new story?" Well, let me answer that for you, I want this to be a story that wows and surprises all of you. So far it's surprising me and I hardly want to spoil anything by showing too many cards from my hand! =D
So for now, chapter 6 of my Celestia story is going to be waiting to be edited, until I'm either done with the rough draft of my Twilight story, or in the event that I hit an roadblock, but it's not looking like that will be too likely. I'm am so loving working on this Twilight fic, it just might be my best one yet. *crosses fingers*
Well, I'd better get some rest, I can't wait to start work on it again tonight! And I don't want to keep Twilight waiting! She's been reminding me all weekend why she was originally my favorite pony!
Till later my friends! Take care and thank you for your patience and support! I've got three pics of the adorable Twilight for you! Enjoy!
I think these pics of Twilight speak for themselves!
