Jumpstart draft no. 11

I opened this word doc and to my surprise saw that I was already mostly done with this draft. I guess I gave up some time ago lol. Anyhow, I’ve had this story in the works since mid ’17 and god damn have dragged my feet on this. But I’m worried about when I have […]

Another Jumpstart draft

I’ve just started another draft of Jumpstart. I’m not that productive with it either. I think I should have done a few pages a day because the last time I touched it was over a week ago. I could have completed it by now if I had done it that way. I’m doing more edits […]

General update for my other books

I’ve gone and gotten shiny new idea syndrome and have begun a new book, but what about my other ones? Save One is mostly completed. Need a few more light drafts and it should be ready. I’ve just grown tired of it atm so I’m giving it some space. The Things We Do has been […]

Jumpstart is going to be a loss leader

I’m thinking that I should make the first book in my Tune series a loss leader. I only came across the term today, but I had the idea of making it free for a long time. But I had been flip-flopping on the idea. I mean, I want to make a steady income from my […]

Decreased productivity :(

In the last three weeks, I have not written as much as I would like. I spent a few days in Germany, then I was sick for another four. And while I thought up another book idea I am still laggingĀ behind in writing up others šŸ˜¦ I think I might be suffering from writer’s block […]

9th draft of Jump Start done

After an unproductive morning, I finally managed to start and finish anotherĀ draft. I also discovered a feature on Microsoft Word that that shows how long I wasĀ editing my story for. It was, I’m not kidding you, 333 minutes. That’s five and halfĀ hours long! And in one sitting. For the most part, it was just line […]

Jumpstart edit 8 done

Finally got the eight edit done. It was like torture. I could only do a few pages a day. It seems that my energy for this story is coming to a close. I think maybe one or two more edits (praying to the writing gods here). I could see that I had repeated some information […]

My impatience! Writing update.

Arrrggg. I’m doing the eighth edit of Jumpstart and I’m still finding things wrong with it šŸ˜¦ It just reminds me that I’m still working on the stories that I thought I’d have completed by now. I’ve got three almost ready, but I’m getting spent with them. I just want to move to other things. […]

Jumpstart sequel: first chapter

I’ve had the first chapter written for months now. It was even the beginning of the series before I went off with Jumpstart. But then I wanted to get that mostly out of the way. Since I have today off I wanted to make it as productiveĀ as I could. But the second half was filled […]

Thoughts on later stage editing

I finished the 7th draft of Jumpstart last night and at times it was like pulling my fingernails out. There were times when I was taking an hour to do a single A4 page šŸ˜¦ The previous draft was a lot easier and I thought I was nearing the end of the process. But this […]
