Hello dear readers. I have returned again, and news do I bring.
This week has been a good one for writing. Almost five-thousand words were written in just a couple of days, or two sessions, and the story is progressing well. I had gone ahead from where the co-author wanted a scene, and they left notes for me about that. However I think I’ll let them handle that part, as I was interested in telling another, future, part of the story. I made great headway with that today, and I outdid my usual output simply because I enjoy the character I’m writing here, and have a bit of a preference to them in the mythos of the world. Going through what the co-author contributed last I was able to a bit of flourishes where they needed it, and of course re-reading the last several thousand words helps me get in the mood to write the next scenes. So all in all a productive session for me and them.
Nothing much else to say here, save I’ve watched more of the show Orville, and find it very much in-line with a Star Trek style of story telling. Yes there are moments of 3rd wall breaking, or at least language that wouldn’t be used in a usual episode of Star Trek, but for the most part it stands as a decent continuation of that style of universe. I’ve yet to watch Discovery so I can’t speak to it, but again I’ve only caught snippets of the show and it looks to be more in line of with a JJ Abrams kind of show. More violence and action than usual to the universe, which might be good, but I haven’t given it a chance to charm me yet.
As it is I’m happy with most things. Progress is being made, and surely, hopefully?, we are only a few more sessions like this away from completing this book’s first draft.
I’ll be back next week at the latest. I hope you all have an enjoyable week.
