December 10th Update

The first draft of Marin’s Codex is complete, at a hair over 102,000 words. Today I’ll be starting through it again to expand a couple of areas that I know need additional content, to flesh out a secondary character, and to try to make sure the story is good. At the same time, one of my […]

December 3rd Update

So, Marin’s Codex is at about 78,000 words in length, though at the time of this writing I’m preparing to do more. For the record, I generally write up these blog posts late Saturday night so that they can go out early. This has been a weird situation. When I began Marin’s Codex, I intended it […]
