August 2018 Overview

Hello everyone.

I’m writing this blog post last-minute. Usually I work on a draft all throughout the month, but I haven’t done that this time.

Enough about that. Let’s get to the point.

What did I do in August?

I finished chapter 6 and 7 of The Land of Two Moons. I am now working on Chapter 8. I set myself a writing goal of 46 pages, and I wrote exactly 46. I have the rest of chapter 8 outlined pretty thoroughly, so finishing that chapter will not be difficult.

I also drew some things.

A shading/color test of the lineart seen in this Tumblr post. It was posted on Tumblr on August 08.
Another shading/color test.
The third shading/color test I did, which turned out too pink/red and not as purple/blue as I thought it would be. It and the preceding piece were posted on August 09 on Tumblr.
A 4-color palette coloring of a sketch. The reason I only used four colors is because I got lazy and didn’t want to color it realistically. Originally posted on August 20 on Tumblr.

I did draw some other things, but they are sketches or concept art and aren’t supposed to be seen by anyone other than me, so I’m not posting them online anywhere!

I’ve also got an unfinished piece; I posted my art progress on Twitter. I’m not sure when I’ll finish it.

What do I want to accomplish in September?

I want to continue this 2 page per weekday thing for The Land of Two Moons. It’ll net me 40 pages, which means I will finish chapter 8, 9, and probably get about halfway through chapter 10.

I’ll need to finish outlines for those chapters soon, since as of right now, I don’t exactly know what happens in those chapters. I have vague ideas, but I haven’t exactly worked them out.

Perhaps it’s time to move some events around and make things more interesting.

I’m also starting to think about what I want to write for NaNoWriMo. Is it too early? I don’t remember if I’ve ever started planning a NaNoWriMo project in September before – that’s something I usually heavily start getting into in October.

Anyway, I really have no idea what I’m doing for NaNoWriMo, so I’m going to focus on that this month.

The last thing I want to focus on this month is creating an editing outline for The Book of Immortality. I finished writing it in April and haven’t touched it since. Enough time has passed that I should be able to look at it, make a list of the major events, and start creating a plan to edit this novel.

Next blog post will be on September 30th! See you then!
