SOE 6 gave me lots of ideas for the Holy Hunter series. I need more time to work on it, so I will be doing that this time. Before I fire up the “Fabula Ex Machina” I will tell of my progress on my current projects. This is part 2 of an unknown number.
What is the status of my current projects: progress made, length of time on the backburner?

What did I accomplish this week as a storyteller?
-No writing this week–No drawings this week-
I analyzed the following shows:
What did I learn from the world of story this week?
- Black Sun 02 – I don’t remember how recently I talked about invisible questions, or what show it was in response to, but Black Sun is full of them. I think the story spanning decades is a brilliant move because the events of each period effect each other and raise questions in the audience’s minds. I heard about starting a story with an invisible question from Shane Miller on Joanna Penn’s Creative Penn Podcast. LL000: Pack your story with invisible questions so you have more threads to pull on throughout the story. Telling a story over two time periods nearly does this by default.
Fabula Ex Machina
Part brainstorm, part drafting out loud.
Prompt: Let’s plan the Holy Hero Hunter series with bullet points PART 2!
