Progress Report (16-07-2016)

July 16, 2017

Today, I’d like to give you guys some idea of what I’m up. At the moment, I’m working on a collection of short stories set before, after, and during the first three parts of The Unconventional Heroes Series. At the moment, the collection has fourteen stories in it. Here are the current names for those stories:

  1. Hungry
  2. Food Supply
  3. Piracy
  4. Uncle Gerald
  5. First Meeting
  6. Tomb Raider
  7. Impostor
  8. The Bank
  9. Gardening
  10. Research and Development
  11. The Rules
  12. Adventure Time
  13. Mr Sparkles
  14. The Beach

That isn’t necessarily the final order the stories will be, but it’s the order they were originally written in. At the moment, the total length (at the first draft stage) of the collection is approximately 54,000 words. Based on what I’ve seen from the four stories that have already undergone a second draft, that word count is going to increase substantially (perhaps even by as much as 50% or more).

There’s a good balance of characters there with some of the stories focusing on our favourite necromancer duo while others offer glimpses into the lives (and pasts) of some of the other characters. You’ll even get to see what Timmy, James, and Vicky were like when they were younger (hint: Timmy and James get along about as well as you’d expect).
