Spent some time at the local coffee shop last night. My good friend and I usually meet there Thursday nights to crank out a couple of hours of writing together, and I used last night to finish up the first draft of my short story, Red Crane.
The construct of the story consists of ten episodes – or chapters, I guess – and an epilogue. The word count right now is 11,526, and I plan to finish this and have it ready to publish sometime in the next month or two. I’m also working on my Camp NaNoWriMo project (the third novel in my Expired Reality series), so I have my plate pretty full right now when it comes to writing projects.
I had a good friend of mine craft some paper cranes for me last week. I’ll be using them for the cover design for Red Crane. I really only need one, but I had him make me five in case I ruin four of them doing what I’m going to do with them – which is a secret for now.
Once I polish up a bit of the first draft, I’ll give everyone a proper teaser of the story. In the meantime, you can check out some of my older posts that have some of the early work I did on the story –
