What Am I Doing Right Now?

So, what's new at jacobdonley.com? Well, as of right now, these are projects that I'm working on:


Short Stories


The Colliding Empires - Friends & Foes

I was about half done with this story when I realized the reason I couldn't progress any further was that I was trying to force the story in a direction that it didn't want to go. So, I am in the process of rewriting the story. Hopefully, this will allow me to move forward and finish the story in a timely manner.

Phoenix Dawn

This is a more recent fantasy, short story that I have written and edited about a family's flight from dark creature intent catching them. After he catches up to them, what will be its purpose with them? (Submitted for publication, waiting for response).

The Call of Fate

This is a medieval fantasy, short story that I am currently writing about soldiers for an empire in the middle of a campaign as they are about to attack the capital city. (Submitted for publication, waiting for response).


Novels



Untitled Car' Al Novel

I am still in the planning stages of this novel in the Car' Al universe. I want to make sure I do it Justice; so, I'm taking my time with it.

Tentative Projects


Born Unto Darkness

This is just a story idea at the moment. It's going to be my take on a modern superhero story. The title is tentative until I've finished the first draft. I'm not writing this story yet, but it is on the to-do list.

Gunpowder & Honor

This is most likely going to be a story on the high seas in a 17th century technology world with a 20th century twist. It will be full of sailing and pirates. This is still in the developmental stages and is on the to-do list.

Rahiath's Legacy

This will be a fantasy story with a half daemon, half human as the protagonist. He has to confront his own misgivings about who he is and where he comes from. This story is in the developmental stages and is on the to-do list.

Unannounced Caller

This story is about a protagonist living in our world, who has some unexpected visitors. The story will detail how he deals with it and how it effects his life. This story is in the developmental stages and is on the to-do list.

Sought and Found

This story is about a young fantastical creature and his venture away from his family to start his adult life. This is in the developmental stages and is on the to-do list.

Pine and 5th at Midnight for Never

This story is in the very earliest of developmental stages, but since I had a title for it already, I felt obligated to share what I think the story will be about. Basically, this story will feature a protagonist from our world who experiences the violent thrust of a supernatural emergence into our world. This chronicles THAT night as he sees it. This story is in the developmental stages and is on the to-do list.


Well, these are the projects I'm working on. Most of these have been added in the past couple of weeks. So, I've been pretty busy writing and thinking up new content. Here's to getting my writing groove back!!! Thanks everyone.

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!










A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
