Sorry, but no Trope Tuesday post this week. Long story short, more internet problems–I’m blogging right now from the McDonald’s on Tch’avtch’avadze Street. Since my battery’s running out, this is going to have to be a quick post.
I suppose I should ask, though: what tropes do you want me to cover in the future? I’m open to pretty much anything, as long as it’s got a tvtropes page. Together, we can
enable our addictions have some productive story research.
In other news, I finished part III of Star Wanderers, and I’m putting that project on hold for a while. Writing a novel in serial parts is proving to be a lot more difficult than writing it straight. Not only do I hit a wall at the 2/3rds mark, but I have difficulty moving on to the next part until the part before it is free of major problems. Because I have to take a break and distance myself before I can really address those problems, I think it will be better to move on to something else.
On the upside, it only takes two or three weeks to knock out each draft, so I’m not too concerned about finishing this project before the end of the year. Part I is already set to go, and Part II just needs some vetting before I feel it’s ready. If you’re one of my first readers and you’re up for a quick novella-sized work, let me know.
That’s about all for now. I also signed up to do a couple of blog interviews, so those should be up in a couple of weeks. And I’ve also got some more posts coming about Georgia and Turkey, so that should be interesting. Stay tuned!
