THE END. I wrote another marathon 15-17 hours from yesterday afternoon straight through the night till early this morning. I think it ended up being over 17000 words but anyways, I hit those two sweet words – THE END. Such a relief and adrenaline rush to finally be able to type them. Finally crashed after that for a good 7 hours of sleep and woke up feeling better than I had in awhile. There’s still a few tweaks I need to make before I send it to the beta readers for their feedback. (Chapter 7 especially) but I told myself the other day if IRead More →

I may have pushed myself a little too hard yesterday/early this morning on that marathon writing session. I slept from about 8 this morning to just before 5. Managed to stay in a bit of a brain fog for a few hours after that and it’s just now starting to fade now. I’ve had the manuscript open for two hours and managed to revise almost 2000 words but all my oomph and motivation has gone straight out the window. There’s literally only about 40 more single spaced pages for me to go through, but really…the words THE END aren’t even motivating me at the moment.Read More →

I am amazed and very proud of myself right now. I stayed up all night and worked pretty well non stop for the last 12-13 hours and retyped, revised, edited, rewrote almost 14,000 words. The only reason I’m taking a break right now is because my hands are just now starting to feel it a little. If I can keep the momentum later today I may just actually finish this pesky little project today and get it to at least one of my lovely beta readers to peruse this weekend. So if that happens I plan to reward myself with a little chinese food andRead More →

Hit the 75,000 word mark on the revising this week, which has honestly been a long time coming. My original estimates on this one was about 75-80K and I think I’m going to be way over that. It looks like there’s at least another 60 pages that need to be looked at so this one could turn out to be in the 85-90K range instead. I guess my high school english teacher was right when she said I wrote novels not essays. I am apparently long winded when I want to be lol Did ten fresh pages of writing today too, thanks to my wonderful,Read More →

Apparently the muse has returned from her stay in the tropics and actually remembered I exist 🙂 I managed just over 5200 words revised tonight, thanks to the help of some sprints and then kept it going for a few more hours on my own. Also managed to move a few scenes around that needed to go earlier in the manuscript. They make much more sense where they are now. With any luck I can keep this pace up for a few more days. The next few chapters should be okay, I don’t think they need a lot of revision, just going over a fewRead More →

Well it only took ten days from applying for the Canadian ISBN Service System and getting my username and password sent to me today. Didn’t take all that long and I already have three ISBN numbers for what should be my first three titles. I went with ePub versions and am research to see which other formats I need numbers for. So far November’s been a pretty good month, two covers and now my ISBN numbers 🙂 Starting to feel like a real writer lolRead More →

So I was rewatching one of my favorite episodes of Big Bang Theory this season when I realized its the perfect writer’s example of make things worse for your character, then make it ever more worse and then throw in a lot more worse for them. 🙂 Gotta love when something like that clicks in your head. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, its when Sheldon decides to get revenge on his co-worker by putting something above the ceiling tiles that will drop down on him when least expected. It should go perfectly to plan. But things go bad when the co-worker walks intoRead More →
