I finished my read through on Sentinels of Atlantis and made my final tweaks to the overall plot arc for season 2. I’ve got a few dangling pairings and some world building to do on the political front for Earth but I’m pretty happy with my finalized plans which I’d honestly hoped to have done by the first of May (that obviously didn’t work out).
I finished the rough draft of the story I outlined in my May 8, 2016 podcast (Plot Drift: What if James Potter left Britain with his family?) and it sort of … well. Let’s just say that what came out of it was inspired but that plot drift and leave it at that. The first draft is around 51k but I expect to increase by at least 25% during the second draft stage and that’s before it enters beta. Since we’re in challenge now and we’ll be in challenge again in November, I don’t expect to put this particular story (currently untitled) into beta until the very end of the year. Well, unless I break something. That being said I have no intention of posting this particular book until the other two books in the trilogy are in the rough draft stage. There are a lot of moving parts and keeping my plot tight for the whole project means nothing gets published until everything is written.
We’re a couple of days past the half-way point for Rough Trade, and I’ve finished two of my stories (links below). This challenge is interesting to me because I came into hyper-motivated and blasted through my first stories so fast that I kind of burned myself out.
I’ll be finishing my final story either this evening or tomorrow for the challenge and of the three — it’s my least favorite for the challenge due to world building revelations I had around the Sentinel/Guide concept and Harry Potter’s canon childhood. Regardless, it’ll be finished shortly, and I’m uncertain if it will ever be available on my site in its current form so if you want to read Duality — you should probably haul ass over to Rough Trade and read it before the clean off date. This Rough Trade has been very successful across the board both with a lot of completed stories AND reader participation. So thanks!
