Golden Progress Update - 30th November 2021
If you follow me on Tumblr, you probably saw the breakdown I had last week because of my laptop going bust on me. It’s going to be sent off for repair tomorrow, so fingers crossed it can get fixed! In the meantime, I’ve been using another device to keep up with writing and it’s going okay so far.
This week has already started off much better than the last. I was struggling a lot with writing, imposter syndrome and anxiety so, you know, just not a brilliant time. However, I managed to get quite a bit done!
Chapter seven was sent off to my beta readers and they’ve been going through it and giving me edits to make on it. The positive comments are lovely, and I finally got to share some of the drama that’s been going on.
Alongside that, I made a new banner for Golden (I literally never shut up about it on Tumblr, and you would’ve seen the image is different in the top post) and did chapter headings and subheadings. The beta readers thought they were a nice addition, so hopefully when they’re all public, readers will think the same.
There’s a lot of POV switching in this next demo update, there’s already over 30,000 extra words added from the last demo, too. The POV switching between the team and the MC allows you to see how both of them deal with the drama going on. It starts off very separate and then the team and the MC will meet together in the end.
The content in the next update will have extra trigger warnings added, just a note on that.
Chapter 8 is going smoothly at the moment, I’ll pick it up again tomorrow. The last scene I’ve finished is the team’s POV, so I’ll be going back to the MC’s and staying there for quite a few pages.
The mental health stat is very close to being used which is exciting… not for the MC, unfortunately, but it does help make things more realistic.
I also mentioned that I have plans for another IF WIP, the brief post made about it is here. I’m debating working on two WIPs, but I’m definitely leaning more to sticking with one - but it’s also nice to be creative and come up with new worlds and ideas. Maybe you’ll see an intro post for it soon.
I know this was a lot, so thanks for reading if you have.
