Came across this list of 101 sci-fi tropes and god do I have some of them in my stories. I mean like how do I write a piece of science fiction without at least one of them? They are the bread and butter and all stories. HAHAHAHA.
I did an edit sprinkle of my draft if that’s what you can call it. I put my book through the free version of Grammarly. I picked up quite a few things that caused me embarrassment. I spelt the word border wrong so many times and often missed out single words that needed to be added for improvement.
I’m going to have to do a few more drafts, but I’ve pretty much completed all of the structure, so it’ll just be line edits from now on.
I opened this word doc and to my surprise saw that I was already mostly done with this draft. I guess I gave up some time ago lol. Anyhow, I’ve had this story in the works since mid ’17 and god damn have dragged my feet on this. But I’m worried about when I have it done and there is no sequel ready. I have only written the first chapter and dot points for the next series of events.
I did more editing than I thought I would for something that is supposed to be in its eleventh draft. I think I deleted as much as I added. I know I have more to do with it as Chris has given me some pretty decent comments to go on.
I hope that when this is ready to be released I will have progressed with the next story. Also, I have no idea how that story is going to end and where the third book begins eeeek!
I recently saw this movie and God damn, it’s world building is something I drool over. I wish I could have written this myself. The effort that has gone into everything is amazing. Everything about this movie is what a great story has, worldbuilding, dialogue, cinematography/scene progression. I will write something this good one day.
It’s been a month since The Things We Do was released. This sci-fi dystopian novella revolves around Lone Honora a 20-year-old. Having just been convicted of theft from her workplace she is sent to prison and once there has to deal with the memories of her childhood. It is here that she has to confront her past so that she can have a future.
I’ve just started another draft of Jumpstart. I’m not that productive with it either. I think I should have done a few pages a day because the last time I touched it was over a week ago. I could have completed it by now if I had done it that way. I’m doing more edits than I thought I would have too. I don’t know if I’m levelling up or my previous attempts were sub-par. I’m hoping to have this thing out by mid-year, but no date is set.
