I spent most of late May and June wrestling with World of Hero, and finished 3 of 4 parts but got derailed. It's much improved but still kind of a mess. I also worked on Return to Amethyst 3: Spirits of Stone which I finished in early July and I'm very happy with how it wrapped up.
July is Camp NaNoWriMo again, I signed up and decided to write 1,000 words a day on various stories. I got off to a good start with finishing Return to Amethyst 3: Spirits of Stone, but I've managed a paltry 3 short stories since then. It's the halway point and I should have 15,000 words by the end of today, and I'm only at about 9,000 right now. But there's time to catch up.
I want to start work on a Tai-Pan story, but I'm still deciding what I'll work on today.
Yearly Goal Progress:
1. Write a Grandpa Anarchy Story a week.
For April I participated in Camp NaNoWriMo, in which my goals were 35,000 words and to write a new Grandpa Anarchy story every day. I managed 27 out of 30 stories and finished the other three soon after. I managed a few more stories in May, then set out to completely rewrite World of Hero, which had been one of my long-time goals. I managed to greatly expand it and completely rework the plot (or to add a plot is more accurate), and I completed 3 of 4 parts, but it's still a mess and I got bogged down in trying to complete it. I switched to Return to Amethyst 3 and after some fits and starts, I finally finished that in early July.
