Well, how embarrassing. There are actually two landmarks in this post because I forgot to send the first after I did it.
That was because the cover image for “Of Sentimental Value” came together so quickly and easily that I just kind of breezed on to the next item on the list. Count me as one stunned bunny; I expected much more trouble with it. I finished that one on April 8.
(Shh, don’t tell anyone. The image is part of the north wall of my garage with a few weird Paint.NET effects thrown in. No affiliation.)
The thing that took up the most time between then and now was the synopsis for my project labeled YHR. The synopsis really helped me sort out some really big holes in the overall plot, including the idea that the main character’s name (and the book’s working title) basically revealed his big secret. So, to avoid the “Clark Kent’s glasses” effect, I changed name and title. Am I 100% sold? No, not really, but it’s better. And I’ve got time.
I was also able to sort through a few setting/genre issues. It’s dieselpunk, and, the way I’ve planned it out, it pretty much has to be. That’s good to know.
After this, I’m up for some PRIMP, including a few tweaks to my editing sequence. After that, I go right into testing those tweaks on chapters one through five of MGC. But you’ll hear from me before then. No, really.
Thanks for reading!
