I just made progress on Aeonlith Saga Book 2! So far I’m 77% complete on the Writing phase. 7 Days remain until the deadline.
I’m still pretty far from completing the first draft of the book but tonight begins my stay at an Airbnb where I’m going to hunker down and write a ton of words! Probably won’t have the draft finished but I’ll be close to being done.
So what’s with the slow down this week? Well, there is a bit of burn out happening in regards to writing but I still wanted to work on the series as a whole. With that in mind, I decided to begin work on a Wiki which includes some well crafted drawings— and so I taught myself digital illustration this week. On the right is a sneak peak at what the protagonist of the Aeonlith Chronicles looks like. Took me a few hours to paint the portrait but it was totally worth it.
Part of the reason for the Wiki is that there are a lot of things to keep track of for the series. I found myself having to go back looking for certain descriptions and small facts I was bringing up again. I also found that I had changed the eye color of a few characters so the visual image will definitely help keep everything consistent.
