Not a lot of progress this past week, though I’ve begun typing up the chapter that will be inserted into The Audacity Gambit. Funny how this month’s focus was supposed to be working on the second book but ended up being equally focused on revising the first. The stories go hand-in-hand, though, so it makes sense in a way.
Regarding July’s focus, there are some big changes at my work that will be taking up a lot of brain space, so that is going to have to be a consideration. At least I’ve regained a lot of traction with writing, so revising the old and writing the new will continue, just at a slower pace.
This month has Chase’s birthday, so I asked him to pick three focus topics and in the end just made him decide which one. He picked:
- Animatic for The Audacity Gambit
- Sewing: clothes
- Ink comic from last February (Richard III)
- Photography: make sets, pick direction
- Fashion blogging
- The unfinished/begun monographs
- Final Space Goth chapter
- Chase and Brenna collabs
- Get rid of old art
- Papier mâché
- Old photos
- Ma-me’ branding
- Sewing: mending & Old work archive/organise
- Secret show production
- Next book
In the end, he picked the animatic ‘trailer’, which is sweet of him, since he will be helping me quite a bit with it and it keeps me in the writing world, helping us both finish the tasks we have to in revising and outlining.
We just finished a lovely evening drive where we hashed out the roughest sketch of what will work best. The crazy thing is now I’ve got to draw Emily for the first time.
