I wasn’t to productive, writing wise, this month. Sure, I started out well, but then I hit a bump. I realized my villain in PT had no motivation, so I had to spend the second half of the month figuring out why the villain wanted to weapon. I’ve now got a fair idea, but still a little unsure. I’ll talk more about it below. Anyway, I revamped the plot, and it’s just about done – just been taking a break so I can decide how to add a scene I want. Plus, I have two 1000 word essay due next week…

The problem I’m having with PT is villain motivation – I have no idea why he wants the weapon so bad. I asked it on Twitter, and received only one reply. To control governments. You can help expand that answer by answer the following question:
“Why would you kill to gain control of a mythological weapon that could: Create/dry up water sources; and cause earthquakes, which would cause tsunamis (strong enough to wreck entire cities)?”
Leave your answers below in the comments section =)
Goals for May:
- Finish the tally system – Yes. All done
- Stocktake – Yep.
- Take TKAK off hold – Kind of… I worked on it at the beginning, but I was forgotten when the villain problem arose.
- Keep working on PT – No. As I said, working on that problem.
Goals for June:
- Take TKAK of hold (again)
- Finish plot of PT
- Work on PT
- Begin edits on TF
