Just a basic update today on what I'm working on. I'm almost done with the new content for The Paladin, which is more or less a revamp to the first few chapters. Once I get that finished, I'll just have to do a little touch up and then it's back to strict editing. I'll have to make sure all the stuff I've already written hooks up properly to the new content, then cut out all the stuff that I'm replacing. Things should go a lot faster once this next scene is done. Excitement!
On the short story front, I have begun a new entry that does not take place in the Paladin universe. It's fun, it's a different, and it's staring an intriguing new character, Lieselotte. I'm really excited to have this finished so I can show it off.
On a more personal front, I've been considering a few things with my current career. As it stands, I do a little work for the local university helping journalism students get experience in writing, filming, and voicing script. I talked with a retired professor and there who was lamenting that there is no longer a broadcast announcing class being offered since he retired. As I have the experience, I asked and he agreed that I might be able to convince the university to let me teach the class. I know this doesn't have anything to do with The Paladin, but I've seen the level of on-air announcing we're currently putting out and it needs work. Badly.
And on one more front, I really have to gush and brag about two of my students. You see, I've been asked to train a group of people to become pro wrestlers! I've been out of the ring, more or less, for two years, but we put things together, I've met these new guys and gals, and I have to say, they are impressing me. Two in particular are really going above and beyond, outpacing what I have scheduled to train them in. Again, I know it's not related to The Paladin, but I thought I'd give you a look at my life. And gush about my awesome students.
That's all for today. Make sure you go out there and tell someone "Hey, I like your hair." It's a gentle compliment that doesn't require any follow up and it'll make someone's day.
Don't Forget To Be Awesome.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
