What's Been Going On
Posted on April 17th, 2012

So it's been a month since my last post. I have to admit that coming back to life after Spring Break was a little rough, but I have been chipping away since then. One of the biggest tasks I had was coming up with a new issue of 'Gotham's Dark Knights'. I had the concept of what I wanted the issue to be about, but was having trouble making it engaging as not much "action" was involved. In the end, I was able to tinker with story structure and writing style to hopefully make a generic scene seem more engaging. I'll talk more about Issue #5 when I post it here soon.

For the most part, I've been working on this latest issue as it presented a few challenges for me, but at the same time was eager to finish so I could start on my steampunk series. As I mentioned in my last post, I was able to finish plotting out the story for the first book and recently started outlining the story based on those note cards so I can have a better grasp on my overall story structure, flow, and chapter breaks. I’m nearly done with that and outside of naming a handful of minor characters, I have nothing left to do except write. In an attempt to be more disciplined in my writing I've recently enrolled myself into the J.R. Woods Graduate School Program since my wife, Amy, has been recently accepted into real Graduate School at North Texas. I figure with her busy in the evenings, I should have few excuses to not sit down and write. She doesn't start until the Fall, but I've decided to go ahead and ease myself into it by scheduling myself writing (as well as working and researching) time each week.

Given that I am now almost to the actual writing process in my steampunk novel, I should spend most of my time writing. Where does that leave my Batman fan fiction ('Gotham's Dark Knights')? I'll talk about that in my Batman post too. Stay tuned!
