Big update today! I will be covering a lot of different developments as the last update like this was in October of last year on my previous website. Much has happened since then, a lot of cool stuff!
Currently, I’m at 37,700 words. Which is incredible when I think about the fact that I was going to stop at 10K. Now the story has bloomed into something much bigger than I thought possible, 7X – 9X larger actually if I continue at this rate. That being said, if I’m almost at 40K and I’m expecting an 80K-range novel then I’m almost halfway done with the first draft! Super excited!
I’m still releasing chapters weekly on Wattpad (or bi-monthly depending on my motivation, haha), as well as revising the first 20, or so, chapters already available. You can read them here: Storm-Fallen on Wattpad.
Just a few days ago I spoke with artist Andreas Rocha (his piece ‘Desert Winds‘ is the featured image) on illustrating the cover of the novel. He will be sending me a rough draft soon and I’m extremely excited to be working with him and to see what he comes up with. You can find his portfolio at andreasrocha.com. His stuff is absolutely amazing. Please check it out.
I’m working on developing some useful reviews with a more technical review system. I don’t know if it’ll be thought of as useful, or fun to read, but I thought I’d give it a shot. I have one out now for ‘Welcome to the Punch‘ which was an action movie from 2013 that just came out on Netflix, but I’ll be working on some more current content within the next few weeks. Probably starting with Jurassic World this week! So if you’re interested look for O2 Reviews right here on my blog.
Well that’s about it for this update, I’ll post again soon if anything comes up worth mentioning. Thanks for checking in and please feel free to comment/message me, I will reply. Are you excited to see Jurassic World this weekend?
