A Little Update

The Broken Pocket Watch chapter 18 will be uploaded tomorrow, after which there will only be 4 chapters left. It’s taken quite a while to get to this point, but we’re nearly there now. Just a few more weeks to go. After that I’m not sure what I’ll be uploading next. 2048 is nearing the half way mark so I’m not sure if I want to start uploading that without it being finished. From Within is finished, but needs editing. Maybe that will be next. I just need to actually get on with editing it.

Writing itself is getting into a good rhythm. I’m writing at least 3 days a week, which is good. Not perfect but better than the 1 day previously. I’m setting myself 500 words as a target whenever I start writing, but I often break that target and only stop when the words stop flowing. The problem I’ve got is, I don’t know where the story is going. I have a few scenes plotted out, but getting there is anyone’s guess. I’ve had this problem before, I’ll just keep on writing and it’ll fit together eventually.

I’m not reading enough, that’s just a fact. I’m making it my aim to read a little every day, even if it’s just a couple of pages. At the moment my reading time is divided between The Smoking Hourglass by Jennifer Bell and Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. I’m enjoying both. I’m also reading, from the beginning, Jason Aaron’s run on Thor. I’ve never read it before, but am a big fan of Aaron. I want to catch up as soon as possible so I can read it as it comes out.

I binged The Punisher in a couple of days over the last week. What an amazing show. I was expecting it to be good, but not that good. After the disappointing Iron Fist and Defenders, it’s nice to know that marvel netflix shows still have some good in them. Bring on Season 2. I’ve started on Godless as well. Only 1 episode so far, but that’s down to length. It’s good so far, but it hasn’t amazed me yet.

Thanks for reading,
