Storyboard - the blog story-writing project

Finishing up bits and pieces of my stories into novellas
Unpolished work, published live
Will not necessarily write every day, but will keep to a story arc
i.e. story will begin on the first of the month. By the 15th, the story will be halfway through, and the story will end on the last day of the month.
My goal is to spend one month pre-writing and gathering materials, i.e. graphics and design elements to complement the writing, and one month writing the story.
I will estimate my story's length at 16,000 words. That will be 4000 words per week, 1000 words in each writing session.
However I will not correspond by a word count requirement, but by a story arc requirement.
My goal is to keep up with the story arc timing. In my outlines I will set dates and events which will be written on those dates in greater detail.

This cemetery was near Waterside. We wandered there after dinner. The first, and oldest, grave, mentioned in the historical marker.

Studying with Dolls

In the afternoons, I usually take my laptop or a book to the bed and study, and a doll for company. Gertrude is sitting on my bed desk. I got her in 2015 from the Korean doll company Dollmore. She's a "Flocke" sculpt. Willow is sitting with my headphones. She's made by the Chinese company Angel of Dream. I got her in 2013. She's a "Qing" sculpt.
Two older entries I edited tonight re-posted today's date. However, the original month/year is still visible in the permalink. Looking back on the past often makes me cringe, especially when I remember my own behavior. However, re-reading these entries makes me feel the past is accessible in the sense that I am still holding on to many of the same dreams and desires. This week, for comps, I read two early gothics, James Hogg's The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified Sinner , and Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly; or, a Sleep-Walker , which were very much along the lines of the books that absorbed me from 2005-2007, most of which I read on my Treo from Project Gutenberg. Looking back upon my interests and desires of that time sustains me now, when I have to tap into my reserves every day to keep reading.
