Jon’s Author Diary -July 14, 2023

Join me on my journey through the world of epic fantasy as I share updates on my second draft progress, character exploration, and more.

This week, I’m excited to share my journey as I continue to delve deeper into the world of my epic fantasy series, Ravenglass Legends. I’ve made substantial progress on the second draft, with 35,000 words already improved. I can’t wait to share this story with you.
I also wrote the first draft for a short story centreed on Maja, one of the point of view characters in the Ravenglass Legends. Discovering her journey and experiences has been a fascinating process, and I believe it will add a new layer of depth to the whole series.
I also completed another episode of the Guild of Assassins which goes live on Substack on Saturday. If you’ve been following along, you know that this is my ongoing novel series that I’ve been releasing weekly. The story is gaining momentum, and I hope you’re enjoying the ride!
This week wasn’t all about writing, though. I was fortunate enough to have a work experience student helping me out. They’ve been a great asset, creating stunning graphics and engaging videos to help bring my books to life and reach more readers.
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. I faced some technical challenges with WordPress, where the formatting got lost during the transition from Microsoft Word. It was a bit frustrating, but, on the bright side, I’ve found a workaround. So, stay tuned for more polished blog posts in the future.
Until next time, cheerio.
