1/5/11. Uploaded "Last Line".
1/1/11. Uploaded a story timeline.
Uploaded RTF document of "Metal Coils". Posted offsite HTML link for
new Rev. C of "Solid Ground". Cleaned up some of the summaries and
explanations on this page.
9/14/10. Uploaded my redone sketch of the
Trio to the Pictures and Playlists page. Updated statuses of several
1/10/10. Uploaded two new vignettes,
"Pilot in Command" and "When Push Comes to Shove". Reorganized and
cleaned up this page a bit. Put the planetary information and pictures
on separate pages. Uploaded a sketch of Lt. Troy from "Muddy Waters"
and a sketch of Mackin and his family to the new "Pictures and
12/20/09. Uploaded the Word document and
HTML versions of a new vignette, "Permanently".
10/31/09. Posted a much better sketch of
Ikoa on her bio page.
9/13/09. Added an offsite link to
newest posted vignette, "Adamantine".
8/23/09. Added information about the
award "Commencement" co-won. Added a name pronunciation guide to each
of the pilot bio pages. Added a note in the Planets section about the
impact of the Essential Atlas
on my stories and the Craci System in particular.
7/7/09. Finished a sketch of Kalre, and
in trying to upload it I realized I hadn't done his biography page.
oops. The basic basics are there, and I'll work on fleshing the rest
out soon. But anyway, that's there along with his portrait. I'm working
on Rev. C of "Solid Ground" for a special purpose. I also did a sketch
of Lt. Troy (a character from "Muddy Waters")
but don't really know where to upload it yet.
5/8/09. Finally uploaded the Word
document of the G.1 Revision of "Commencement". Now the story in the
HTML link matches the one in the Word doc. Yay. I finished the
below-mentioned sketch of Mackin, but I still need to upload it. Just
when I think I'm making good progress on "Going to Pieces", something
else goes wrong with it. pfft.
4/14/09. Added an offsite link to my
newest vignette, "Rendezvous Point." No Coronas were harmed in the
making of that story. I need to upload the G.1 Revision Word doc of
"Commencement" so the Word doc matches the HTML linked version. My new
goal is to get a photograph of the road sign for Quiver Lane I
discovered on the northwest side of Houston. I've almost finished a
scene sketch of Mackin (different from the Feb. 8 portrait), but I
still have to think about the best way to add it here.
2/8/09. Added a sketch of Mackin
his bio page. It still has lots of room for improvement (I think his
eyes might be too small), but it's much, much better than the one that
had been up there a while ago. I realized too late that I forgot
something on his flight suit too. I'll try again when I find a better
1/29/09. Added an offsite HTML link for
Rev. G of Commencement. Updated a couple minor details on the Author
1/4/09. Added TIS banner. Did some general page tidying-up.
10/31/08. Updated the Current Projects
section. Figured it would be a good idea to include a mention of the
story ratings, so I put that in the overall Story header. I also intend
to write a basic timeline showing when stories take place in relation
to each other and maybe some other events, but I'm not sure how to do
that yet. That will be a project for December, after I'm done with NaNo.
8/24/08. I completed and posted two more
sketches. One is CC's portrait, found on her bio page (which also has
some updated text). The other is a sketch of the Trio together. I'm
extremely happy with the Trio sketch. A small
version and a link to a bigger version can be found above. I'm still
experimenting with the best way to scan or otherwise electronically
capture the sketches, so some tweaks may be coming on that front in the
8/5/08. I finished a portrait sketch of
Quiver I'm really happy with. That can be found on his bio page, and I
smoothed out the text there too. The new final version of
"Commencement" is also uploaded as a Word file. I added a new archive
page showing earlier site updates below. I split up the "Solid Ground"
and "Muddy Waters"
HTML files into smaller groups of chapters. I'm planning on doing the
same for "No Going Back" as well.
7/21/08. Finally got caught up on
my huge to-do list around here! All full-length stories should now have
both a Word document and an HTML document either uploaded or linked.
The shorter challenge entries will not have a separate Word document in
most cases and will continue to be linked offsite. I have to figure out
how to better organize the listing of challenge entries on this page,
since some don't have a specific spot in the timeline, and therefore
it'll be hard to put them in chronological order. While I do consider
them "Corona canon", I don't really want to put them in the big main
story listing for some reason, so they'll stay in the "Additional
Stories" section for now. My latest challenge entry "Turnaround"
now has the info and link available to it. The latest tweaked version
of "Outside Looking In" is uploaded. I also uploaded the remaining
biographies. The complete Word document for "The Way" is now available.
Some insignificant formatting tweaks were done to a couple of files.
The multimedia section is still in-work, since that's a big project for
me with lots of links going everywhere that I have to coordinate. I
also scrubbed the Links page (link found below) and included some
personal favorite fanfic sites there as well.
7/9/08. Yes, after seven years, I finally
have full bios actually written down
of all the Coronas. I'm working on posting them here and expanding
the ones that had been posted previously. Darin's bio page now has a
sketch of him that I am very, very proud of. After many years and
numerous attempts, I finally was able to capture on paper what I think
he looks like. I also updated a few statuses
and removed "Reincarnations". I hope to get some major work done on
this page over the next week or so, including uploading all missing
files and adding the info for "Turnaround".
Added two new pictures to the
Corona-related places and items page. Added latest sketch of Darin.
Contemplated taking the assortment of drawing-type stuff and putting it
on its own page.
2/25/08. Added Word document of
revision of "Commencement". I
still need to tweak it a bit and finalize it, but I wanted to get it up
now because I'm not sure how much longer it'll be before I consider
that "done" due to my current work on "The Way". Added offsite link to "The
1/13/08. Added description of and link to
latest challenge entry, "In-Dependence." Revised ECD of new revision of
C'ement: the story is fully
written, but I have to do a bit of editing and some integration checks
within it and with OLI.
11/3/07. Added description of and link to
latest vignette written as a challenge entry, "Night Vision." Added a
couple new photos on the Corona Pictures page (page two). Revised ECD
of new revision of "Commencement".
9/3/07. Posted slightly
revised version of "Outside Looking
In". Posted another vignette,
"Root and Weed." Again lamented the
lack of progress on all the things I want to do with this site and add
to it but lately have not had the chance to sit down and do. Still not
too happy with the CC portrait, which means I probably won't be posting
the one I did and will instead be redoing it sometime down the road.
7/1/07. Posted "Outside
Looking In" (Word document)
along with OLI deleted scenes, new revision of Fleet Description (Word
document, removed old HTML document), and "Behind the Line" (offsite
HTML link). Will add HTML files for OLI, Fleet Description and Waters
at a future time, along with Word docs for BtL and Probability.
Portrait of CC will not be posted before mid-July. Decided to
concentrate on finishing earlier stories and not jump around the story
timeline like I've been doing for the last however many years. Told
myself to hurry up and finish the rest of the pilot bio pages.
3/26/07. Posted "Muddy Waters"
(Word document) and
Probability" (offsite HTML link). Will add Waters HTML and Probability
Word doc at a future time, along with a better summary for Waters.
Added sketch of Darin on his bio page. Added Anime-style picture of the
characters. Contemplated turning the Picture section into more of a
multimedia section and including more songs and possibly "DVD Features"
in addition to the pictures (not actual video [though I wish!!], just
little written featurettes and such). Still contemplating that.
