The Offer's Still Open for Another Week
I'm still offering to email out the first 3 chapters of the Balfrith story, if anyone is interested. I did get a bunch of responses, but based on the web traffic history that I'm seeing, I know there are more of you out there. Just send me an email at thuri...

Story Update 2014-07-03
Well, we're still reading and editing our way through the story. I am on chapter five, and the Wif expects to finish chapter three today. It's going more slowly than I had hoped, but then that seems to be the theme of my life and most of my endeavors. At th...

Story Statistics as of Completion of Second Draft
Now that we're in the full read-through process, I won't be posting as much since there will not be much to say. But for today, I thought I would share a few statistics from the story, as provided by Scrivener. Word Count: 164,486 Characters: 909,520 Pages ...

Story Update 2014-06-19
Yesterday, I finished the last missing scene! I'm now left with one small to-do item, which I expect to get done today or tomorrow, and I will officially be done with the second draft of the book. That doesn't necessarily make it ready for publishing, but i...

Update 2014-06-16
I had some time open before heading to the office this morning, so I went ahead and finished up yet another task in my to-do list. It was the last of the easy ones, so now I just have two tasks left which will require writing two scenes. Hard to tell at thi...

Story Update 2014-06-13
I realized this morning that I need to rewrite the previous two scenes that I did, on Wednesday and Thursday. Sigh. The thing is, they aren't bad scenes in and of themselves, but they are out of character for the people and place where they occur. I have a ...

Story Update 2014-06-28
The geekwif's read-through and commentary proceeds apace. She has given me feedback on chapters one and two so far, with minor suggestions and corrections that I have incorporated into the current draft of the story (for those who are counting, this round o...

Story Update 2014-06-20
I finished the final to-do item during my flight back home on Friday! I have now exported the book to PDF and given it to my wife, and she and I will both read it from start to end, looking for any obvious problems in the story, and fixing them, as I mentio...

Story Update 2014-06-18
I wrote another scene this morning, meaning that I've only got one left to go and that will complete my to-do list. And with two more days in Shanghai, I expect that I'll have enough down-time to get it done, no problem. How great is that? Need to keep this...

How About That? (Update 2014-06-15)
It's Sunday morning in Shanghai, where I am, in case you are reading this on a Saturday evening in the US and wondering about the date in the title. I spent close to twenty hours traveling "yesterday", from Friday morning departure through check-in at the h...

Another One Bites the Dust (Update 2014-06-12)
Yep, I wrote another of the missing scenes. Not much else to say, the countdown continues. Unfortunately I am heading out of town tomorrow, so unless I write three more scenes today (not likely), I won't quite finish my to-do items this week. But I have mad...
