Moonlake’s Writing Updates- December 2021

I’m currently working on draft 0.82. To be honest, I’m not making major headways in the most recent few decimal drafts. More and more, it’s about letting go of scenes that were 70% done and acknowledging that I don’t have the mentality or whatever to push it through the 100% mark right now and choosingContinue reading “Moonlake’s Writing Updates- December 2021”

Moonlake’s Writing Updates- September 2021

I’ve actually been going pretty strong ever since I got back to my WIP in July. I burned through 10 chapters in that month and for August it was 8 chapters.. Sounds grand, right? The reality is that I was leveraging 90% of this on previous notes and tying up loose notes from revision. OnlyContinue reading “Moonlake’s Writing Updates- September 2021”

Moonlake’s Writing Updates- June 2021

From the second last week of May, I had actually moved into new territory. That is, I had put aside my WIP and gone into outlining my tentative next project. So I’m currently outlining book 1 or the grandma’s story.  I think I mentioned it before but somehow I decided that it will fit rightContinue reading “Moonlake’s Writing Updates- June 2021”

Writing Updates- February 2021

So this is an ad hoc writing update because I already changed my writing goals after one month in 2021.  So basically I’m still continuing (being plagued) by the decimal draft process where I just cannot create even a full rough draft but have to proceed via partial outline, partial draft form for a blockContinue reading “Writing Updates- February 2021”

Moonlake’s writing updates- January 2021

I finished off last year with a draft 0.75, not quite what I had aimed at. Instead, I’m aiming for draft 0.8 to be completed by end of this year. Beyond that, I have no plans as yet, I think one year plan is sufficient as far as this debut novel is going. It willContinue reading “Moonlake’s writing updates- January 2021”

Self-Learning Side Project

Lately I’ve been thinking up time use again and about side projects and self learning. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that my writer self  is whimsical by nature. So all of what I’ve been thinking about combined themselves and now I have got a new side project (to replaceContinue reading “Self-Learning Side Project”

Moonlake’s writing updates- August 2020

I’m now officially into draft 0.8 as I planned but well… things again weren’t proceeding quite as I expected. I am still more in the outlining realm compared to drafting. There’s simply too much gray area for me to fill in for a scene to actually really settle down to real drafting. Having said that,Continue reading “Moonlake’s writing updates- August 2020”
