  8. WHAT IS PREWRITING? Good literature needs prior thought. It also

    needs characters, places, and plot items.
  9. Before we start a novel, we need to do the

    following: Figure out a vague back-of-book summary Craft some characters, places, and plot items (Proto) Name it
  10. These steps will happen in sequence, each after a certain

    amount of time to allow for reddit-style voting to occur on contributions.
  11. The word-by-word contribution will begin once the prewriting rounds are

    completed.
  12. CURRENT PROGRESS We are ahead of schedule in terms of

    functionality.
  13. 1. Navigation - done 2. Voting - done 3. Prewriting

    backend - done frontend - begun 4. Statistics backend - done frontend - not started 5. Grammar Filtering - improved not yet introduced to the product
  14. DISCUSSION

  15. Styling will take us a longer time than originally expected

    due to our inexperience. Our logo designer will be consulting on the design. We are doing entirely custom CSS, no frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation, etc).
  16. One of the open source libraries for our mobile application

    is still under rapid development, so we are focusing effort on the web front-end. This library is the Relay API which provides a convenient wrapper to our components to access our GraphQL data layer.
  17. Implementing new features has been much faster than anticipated. Most

    components are close to universal (web & mobile). React allows us to only need to rewrite the view layer. Positioning is still managed with Flexbox React-Native allows us to swap out <div> for <View> and <p> for <Text>
  18. We expect the product to be completed on time.

  19. QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS?
