5000 words? Smashed.

Broke 5000 words on Epsilon 3.5.1 less than halfway through chapter two.  Of course…Lucas Ross decided he wanted to go a little crazy on me, so we’ll see what that does for his relationship with Aaron Taylor further down the line.

I think it’s time to clean and organize my craft area, in the meantime, since I don’t have to go into work!

UC raid tonight.  We’ll see how that goes.   My hopes aren’t too high…but maybe there will be screenshots for later.

On to chapter two! (and other such fun things)

Chapter one of draft 3.5.1 seems to be largely complete with a scene between Aaron and Jack wrapping it up.  Ahh, Jack!  How we will miss thee when you’re gone!  Chapter one came in at about 3700 words and I’m into chapter two already.  iTunes is up and playing (bought more music — again), the main floor of the house is vaccuumed, and I’ve got a fresh cup of coffee and an hour before I’m supposed to find out whether or not I’m working today.  We’ll see what pans out.

Wednesday update

Work was okay ’til the end today.  We’ll leave it at that.  The end sucked.

 

On a brighter note, having gone to the mall at 8:30 this morning, I got to sit with my music and write, so I worked on Epsilon.  We’re up to 3400 words even on the new draft.

Torg tomorrow night!  Very excited.  But I’m always excited for gaming.

And it rolls on

Had a guild meeting last night for RoA, which went very well, mercifully.  God only knows what I’d have done if it hadn’t gone well.  It’s such a different animal than AF was, but at the same time it’s really the same.

Jude got threatened last night by a new “evil” guild.  It’s nice to be told that someone inside of your own organization wants to kill you…and then even nicer to surprise them by being wholly unsurprised.  But that’s the nature of the beast.  Jude’s from a noble house of Lordaeron.  She’s a member of the Kirin-Tor.  She doesn’t always play by the rules of the game–of anyone’s game.  Of course people would want to end her.  It’s why Lyyn does what she does.  But yeah…impressive show of RoA solidarity walking out of the guild meeting.  Fun times for all!

Enter the A’duuin!

So I came up with what the consortium of non-human races that have positive relations with the Epsilon Alliance call themselves:  The A’duuin.  It fit better than something like “the League” or anything like that (the League just makes me think of the League of non-aligned worlds from Babylon 5).  Colloquially, humans of the Alliance simply term their non-human trade partners and sometime allies as “the Races.”  But these people wouldn’t call themselves that.  Hence, A’duuin.

Basic update – 2.18.09

So the rough page count on the thesis stands at fifteen, including a page of figures (which is actually just a map from Caroline Shenton’s fantastic article from EHR 114).  About…hm.  Half of that is actual things written that I’ve thought through and mulled over in my brain.  All single spaced.  Still a ton of work to do, though — a huge, major ton of work to do, which may either commence tonight or tomorrow morning, I’ll decide after I’m done writing this (the sister brought me coffee from Starbucks, so I’m going to be up for a wihle longer, that’s for certain).  As for Epsilon, the count stands at six and a half pages (a shade over 4,000 words) on draft 3.5 (waiting on feedback from a couple folks on the beginning; I’ve been scribbling notes in a notebook like crazy for a couple weeks, though).  Not a bad start, considering I hadn’t really touched it in more than a year.  Things are looking to become far darker and strangely more interesting the more I stew over concepts and ideas for the story.
