James Rink - DARPA - the Bluebeam potential of MiLabs and G3-operatives.

According to Super Soldier afficianado James Rink,

DARPA is the one that hold’s onto the MILAB projects. Most of the abductions and injections are given via out side doctors well away from the main operations employed by the organisations (and) torture is used by these doctors as a way of control.

the following video from James Rink, who's been investigating the G3-operatives (or Super Soldiers as they're called) for years, shows how the MiLab/UFO Satanic indoctrination process works. You can look into Project Bluebeam if you want, it's alter'd slightly since its inception after the 2nd World War when Operation Paperclip brought dozens of Nazi war scientists to work at NASA. Excuse the jolly music track, as Powerstation might be some sort of kinky activation phrase for those in the Global Gambling Game.

Watcher, second draft begins

First draft 50,000 words, done.
Second draft has just begun.
It's going to be between 15 and twenty chapters, and I've given myself the task of writing about 4,000 words per chapter. So far, so good.
I'm about to start chapter three and the first two chapters feel about right being 4,100 and 4,500 words respectively. This gives a good MEATY feel to the novel, even if it's at the 15-chapter end of the scale. By this I mean, "Each chapter is a good length," to draw the reader into Millgate's world.
I'll do a couple more second-draft chapters this afternoon.
And I'll keep doing that until the book's finished.
Right now, it's time for my run. Back in an hour ... made it round my usual six mile route in 55mins, which for me is a sign that getting old is really going to hurt.
DAYS LATER UPDATE: seven chapters completed to second-draft standard, 28,000 words; so, expected wordage-wise, I'm bang on schedule. I've gone through and looked at the structure and have decided that sixteen chapters will tell the tale, that'll make (roughly) 64,000 words for the finished novel.
Today's 90 minute i.e. 9 miles, jog in the midday sun was very tiring.

LEAPS AND BOUNDS - Spanish Eyes - adjusted cover

it sometimes takes me a few months of intense thinkage before embarking on a book project, but once I get going I don't fuck about.
Houston, "We've just breached the FIFTY THOUSAND WORDS mark," that's over ten thousand words since the most recent update on this blog and I'm kinda starting to understand how this book might end, and more importantly WHY. Even with that utterly-Earth-shattering narrative-twist surprise ending I wrote a few weeks back and didn't wanna put in the book in case it just seemed like a cop-out. Seems though I'm loathe to follow some sort of organised plan, my mind wants to drag this G3-whistleblower narrative back to the OPPENHEIMER WAR WORLD scenario of book 1, Tandem.
Watcher is really book 2 in a trilogy; well, technically, book one. But it works better having been brought out in this order. Tandem first, then Watcher, then Kumiko (book three) which is going to be TOTALLY MENTAL because of all the radical ground work already laid by these preceding WAR WORLD novels.

Watcher novel - major narrative upheavals - now links with Tandem novel

so I had some plans for the Watcher narrative, and what happened? The book took over. This has happened several times in my writing career. The book (or the characters) dictating where the story should go.
Same just happened.
I had a stack of ideas and a stack of narrative turning points (including two amazing twists in the tale) and recent developments suggest these were Red Herrings, which is kinda good because the novel looks more authentic i.e. less contrived, when I (the writer) believe it to be one thing when it's conspiring behind me to be something else. I've gone back in and edited the start a little but not to any grotesque extent, I mean it's not corny; just tidied.
It's still about G3 or the Global Gambling Game, but it's got teeth now, skin and bones and a brain, not just pretty face paint.
I love it when this happens, when I'm forced to realise what it is I'm actually writing, and that makes the process of Discovering A Novel really interesting - never a dull moment. Writing novels (for me) is, and should be, an organic process; the fact that the story is being dictated by the characters' actions tells me I'm on the right track. This is certainly not 'writing by numbers'. This is dangerous. This is on the edge. This is scary. And Watcher now it ties in to Tandem (G3 Whistleblower novel #1) more intimately; we even discover how The Market began... who Lorien Howell really is.
As I pass the 33,000 words mark, I realise I'm probably about half way through my projected storyline for this book - just depends how the new narrative content folds itself into the mix. How the book climaxes. How much patience I have not to involve any Kumiko (G3 Whistleblower novel #3) material at this early stage.
37,000 words mark UPDATE: so, I've had a couple of good writing days, really intense stuff, some wild and wonderful content ... and I'm wondering how much of it I'll retain. It's alright, there's nothing wrong with the writing, it's just that it might have gone a little too 'off piste'. I can't really tell yet, but I've got a lot of material to work with at least. A lot more crafting'll be necessary, before the emerging stoyline properly reveals itself.

Watcher - return of the giants - crowd action and foreign lands

just back from a lovely five-day holiday in Seville, Spain, temperature 30-35 degrees, 35% humidity, glorious sights and sounds (and tapas) here are a couple new WATCHER ideas:
  1. in the original 'watcher' 3D game concept (upon which this novel is based) I had a mechanism that used the crowds as a 'surfing media', and I've tried to at least 'homage' this mechanism within the novel. It translates into the book in a 'slightly different way' where I regurgitate 'the G3 giants' from my other G3-whistleblower novel TANDEM. The Giants in that book were real nasty, corporate combat models, but these ones are more 'gentele' or 'domesticated', at least as cunning, and have weirder abilities than just 'ratchet-lengthening bones' and fury, such as the ability to 'go where no man has gone before'.
  2. I want to incorporate some 'foreign travel' into this sprawling urban concrete+towerblocks landmass narrative. Sure, cities are a great thing to write within, but 'making it through security' and 'having to deal with tourists spots' that have high concentrations of human refuse is also a great writing challenge, certainly with Watcher's (stalking) context.
  3. Something to do with the 'wearer of the watch' (and what happens when it's stolen) will also reveal itself to be of 'utmost importance'.
EVENING UPDATE: Oh, my giddy aunt, Watcher just took the most massive U-turn of my writing career. And I love it. It's  a corker of a twist. A corker. One of several that are 'incoming', but this one took me particularly by surprise. I haven't written it in yet, as it's a later-stage development turn-around, but once it's in you'll go, "Oh, my giddy aunt!" Yes, my precious..... yes.
As of April 17th 2014, this first draft is about 27,000 words... and growing steadily more and more bizarre and insane each day.
