So. I joined #ROW80…to give myself goals, and to keep myself blogging. Is it working? Heckno. I’ve fallen so far behind with the blogging aspect that I’m like “Dude, srsly? We have to BLOG?” xD Yes, yes we do. I’m majorly ADD lately, zinging from one subject to the next…and Wednesday and Sunday pass without a blog post. LOL Whoops. My bad. I seriously need to create a giant sticky note. Or a reminder…or something.
Anyway: what have I gotten done in the past two weeks, you ask? Well I shall tell you :3
I finished Wolfsong. Completely and utterly finished the first draft. Well…yes, technically it’s a first draft even though it’s a rewrite of an older work. I didn’t use one bit of wordage/dialogue/etc from the Original (which was 50k and…well, bad LOL) Wolfsong is also the longest piece of work I’ve written to date at 75,000 words! -cheers self on- I never thought I could write so much And it might puff out a few thousand words once I get to work on the edits!
Also, a little mini-squeal: I’ve had a couple of betas read Wolfsong. They’ve picked out a couple of inconsistencies and “hey, that should be-”‘s and overall gave me good reviews and requests for a sequel (which, I have a cast for but no plot atm! Someday!) I’m very pleased with myself–and with this version of Wolfsong. -hugs the cast- Thank you, Revel and Reena, for reading
And, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve decidedly joined SocNoc! 5 days in, and I’ve got a whopping 11.3k on my new YA Paranormal, Hunger. Very proud of myself here. Hunger’s cast is decidedly a little strange and are giving me small bouts of issues, but I’m bulldozing through. Changes are for rewrites, yeah? XD Yeah! So. Bulldozing on…
Now, for my Goals. I have decided to change them a little bit.
1: Write 1667 words (or more) a day on Hunger.
2: Edit 3 chapters (or more) a day on Wolfsong. (this involves the notes/suggestions Revel and Reena gave me)
3: Get my buddy Sadie to teach me how to format Wolfsong for CreateSpace (so I can get my NaNo-won free copy!)
4: Submit Wolfsong’s file/cover file to CreateSpace and get it approved and sent out
Just gotta get through June…and then I’ll let myself think about new betas, maybe another crit-partner, and how I wanna pursue publication: indie or traditional. Big Scary Things! :0
