Things have taken a turn. I got honest with myself about my calendar (which you can read HERE) and now just isn’t the time for Sally Forth to be the number-one-priority focus of my creative efforts.
I will still be working on the project, but it’s priority status will have to wait until the book is at least mostly written. I hope you’ll understand, and promise to share any updates to the project schedule when there are any.
In case you’re wondering where I’m putting my focus for the time being, I’m working on the BETTER STORYTELLING site and generally squaring away my online presence as a writer while also handling some offline creative endeavors which are mentioned in the blogpost linked at the start of this update.
Thank you and good journey,
Anybody else experience a sudden burst of actual Springtime this past week? Because the cold weather is finally done here in Providence (at least, for the time being).
This past week I was able to complete a charming little PDF download of The Original Chapters and to make Tarot outlines for the three short stories I mentioned in the previous update. The Original Chapters will be removed from the project page as soon as I’ve finished writing The Short Stories, which will themselves only be available on the project page temporarily.
Speaking of The Short Stories, today I begin work on them in earnest. If you mosey on over to my Twitch channel HERE and my YouTube channel HERE, you may just find me working on them via typewriter. Why? Because sometimes I want to avoid spoilers, for your sake.
If you really want the PDF of The Original Chapters without waiting for Sally Forth to be available for pre-orders and reach funding and all that, please note that I am considering doing a soft re-launch of my Patreon page which would mean that you could also get the PDF of The Short Stories early as well. BUT, I haven’t decided to do that yet, so the Patreon page is still in need of numerous updates.
Here’s to posting The Short Stories soon,
Today marks the start of 100 Days devoted to my working on Sally Forth. And things are going to be little different from the 100 days spent on the Narratemes project:
So, here we are on Day 1 of 100, currently in draft mode, and totally excited to be sharing this story!
Tomorrow I begin my second round of 100 Days of Morning Writing.
While they will be focused on SALLY FORTH, I will of course continue my work on THE GOLDEN GOOSE EGGS including an update to the Puss-in-Boots "teaser" article HERE plus the "translation" from this project available as a free download HERE.
As you may have intuited from this update (and possibly learned following the Narratemes campaign), I have changed up how I choose which project comes next. My priority focus remains on one project at a time of course, but instead of queuing campaigns I decide on the next campaign as the current one nears its end based on both audience input and the course of action which makes the most sense to me.
Otherwise, I’m getting too far ahead of myself too soon and not allowing room for life’s little surprises. As I continue to develop the MASTER CAT method, I continue to implement and iterate and make the best possible work for you.
Right HERE we have the narrateme Recognition and over HERE we have its partner Exposure where we do some proper self-congratulating with regards to all that has been accomplished and all that was risked.
There’s also a related journaling prompt HERE in the Facebook group, and the very latest updated Golden Goose Eggs article HERE which sets the stage for what I want to build next in the vein of Fairy Tale Living resources.
For now, I’d like to share THIS LINK to the completely edited and formatted guided journal The Four Gifts You Carry, or 31 Days Of Narratemes, a guided journal for questing the crap out of your daily life. Because today being the last day of the Inkshares campaign that didn’t reach it’s funding doesn’t mean all this work is going to up and disappear.
Nope. THE FOUR GIFTS YOU CARRY is available for just $10 (or more, if you think it fair) and includes all the lessons and all the worksheets plus an additional 25 journaling prompts and special fairy tale boon intros for each section: The Seven-League Boots, The Golden Key, The Wise Doll, and The Threadless Needle.
Which this the very last of the Reader Updates for this project. But if you’d like to follow along with my very next quest, you can do so by following SALLY FORTH on Inkshares. Otherwise, for the next Goose Eggs project, be sure to subscribe The Golden Goose Eggs site HERE and join the facebook group HERE to be in the know when the next egg is laid.
Now, those 100 days are scheduled to begin May 1st and end August 8th. But I’m getting started early to get all the things squared away:
All live-streaming is 9-11am EST daily (unless some unavoidable scheduling conflicts and I do it earlier in the morning or am forced to skip a day).
Looking forward to doing some proper fiction writing for you,
But today, goodies; farewells and future plans in four days.
Today you’ve got your Solution narrateme HERE helping to bring an earlier lesson full-circle, a related journaling prompt HERE in the Facebook group, and below are three intentionally familiar journaling pages to go with the Solution narrateme.
Well, HERE we have the Task narrateme which gts right to the business of journaling worksheet below), HERE we have a related prompt on the theme of Depthlessness/persistence, and HERE is the article I wrote detailing what I think The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Andersen was intended to be about.
Well, in my opinion you should, which is partly why I really like this most recent lesson on Claim available HERE, the which goes along with today’s journaling page:
Also, HERE is today’s bonus journaling prompt which connects back to the link between Claim and Thanks. PLUS, y’all should know that — given the unlikelihood of this campaign reaching its funding goal — I have gone ahead and begun creating a PDF edition of the 31 Days Of Narratemes which will have all lessons and journaling pages together.
