Just A Little Update

Hello, everyone!

As this is the start of another month, I thought this would be a good time to update anyone interested on my writerly progress.

First of all, I’ve started on Chapter Twenty of “Fall of the Spectrum”. In theory, this means I have (approximately) ten chapters left before the first draft is done.

Secondly, I started on draft 3.2 of “Whispers of Nowhere” a few days ago. Yes, 3.2–because at least 20% of the story’s content went through edits and revisions before the first draft was even completed. Though I’ve calmed down considerably on the “edit as I go” and “go back and edit again and again until the screen’s a blur” fronts, I feel it both fair and necessary to point out that just because I’m on the technical “third draft”, doesn’t mean a number can be given to the amount of edits performed. It can’t, because I’ve literally lost count. 😛

Anyway, as a result of this next stage of revisions, research and outlining for the prequels has taken something of a backseat, though I won’t stop working on them, entirely.

I still hope to get FotS’s first draft done by May if possible, and to have WoN’s revisions done by fall.

Whether I’m being realistic or idealistic, we’ll see. Wish me luck. ^^;

(I’ve also added a tag to Fall of the Spectrum to the Home page.)

Well, that’s my update for now. I hope everyone’s doing well, and I look forward to sharing my updates with you.

Cheers!

Hello, there, and welcome to my humble little corner of the internet! My name is Shannon, and I've wanted to be a writer for the better majority of my life. In the last 4+ years, I've begun taking the steps necessary to get myself to that point. I am currently working on a trilogy under the title, "Whispers of Nowhere". I started outlining the first book, "Whispers of Nowhere" between late 2013 and early 2014, and officially began writing the first draft May 2014. As of Dec 2016, it has undergone a multitude of edits, and four complete drafts. I began outlining the second book in the series, "Fall of the Spectrum" in May of 2015, began the first draft September 2015, and completed it nearly a full year after outlining--May 2016. That same month, I began outlining the third book, "The Mythos Trials"; the first draft of which officially started early June 2016, ending in November of the same year. On the side, I am outlining two prequel origin stories, plus a spin-off prequel that serves as the bridge between the origin stories and the Whispers of Nowhere trilogy; Shattered Time. In sum, I'll be neck-deep in writing for quite some time. If you're interested in seeing some of my work, don't hesitate to ask. :)
