  • Ayli’s Cheat Sheet of One-Liner Writing Tips

    It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve written a post for you guys here. Sorry I’ve been MIA, I’m hoping to get back into the groove of things over the next few months. (I’m not used to actually keeping busy, so I’ve gotta learn to juggle.)

    To make up for my neglect, I’ve compiled this handy-dandy list of little things to keep in mind when writing, something for you to revisit every once in a while when you feel the need to refresh yourself.

    You ready? Then without further ado, here they are:

  • My Progress in the Month of January

    Well, this past month has surely been… something. Can’t say it’s much of a surprise to me that it was my most prolific month since last September. There’s lots of fuel to drive my fire just sitting around these days.

    In total, I wrote 16,341 words in January with a total of six days where I didn’t write any. For those first two days (literally the first and the second), I was still at my mom’s for Christmas and New Years, which I decided to use as break time. The other four days were just a matter of me wanting to think out specifics of where certain scenes were going while working on character sheets for Project 2, which I’m pretty sure I’ve already revealed is officially titled Bloody Merry. That’s going pretty well too, having come leaps and bounds from back in ’13 when I was still considering the title The Ghouls. There’s still a lot to work on before I can actually, officially start the series, but I’m super pumped for you guys to learn more about it.

  • My Progress in the Month of October

    Well, Halloween Month is over. You know what that means?? You got it! Trade in the pumpkin spice for peppermint, ladies and gentlemen, it’s officially pre-Christmas!

    In all seriousness, last month wasn’t my best in terms of TDoaS progress, but that’s because I’ve started simultaneously working on another project. Because of this, I’ve decided that with this month (November), I’m going to start recording all of my creative progress, not just things pertaining to this one story.

    (Because I am both a paranoid nut and a lover of surprises and well-planned sneak peeks, I’m not going to tell you much about this other project I’m working on – especially considering it’s still in pretty early development – but because I assume it’ll be necessary information, I’ll tell you this much: it’s a comic, and shall henceforth be referred to as Project 2 until I decide to reveal the name.)

    Now, on to those numbers!
