Day 7 of writing

I’ve begun to do a rough chapter/scene plan for my new book. I think it’ll be a novella more than anything else. I’ve gotten to number 11, but I’ve stalled. I’m at a scene that could be done differently in a few ways and I don’t know which path to take. I’m going to leave […]

Stalled with your writing? Go back and edit what you’ve done.

So I’m working on this new book/duology storyline. I have major events near the beginning defined, but I do not have as much nearer the end. I know it’s a good story so I’ve gone ahead and started writing under the assumption that I’ll work out the kinks as I go. Well, every so often […]

A new novella is created

It’s 1.30am Edinburgh time and judging by the date of this post, I just finished a 31,000 novella in 24 days! I’ve been saving over the file so I don’t have exact dates. But that’s damn impressive 🙂 I’ve changed the main character’s name because it was annoying to write it as I kept spelling it […]

The Backup Girl is available for purchase

I’m finally done with this book 🙂 I’ve uploaded it to Amazon and Smashwords and I’m waiting for it to be put online. I had to fix the size of cover image because I had it too small and by chance, Amazon managed to find two spelling mistakes (oops, my bad). But I fixed them and […]

New story idea brewing

Currently, I’ve got this new space adventure idea churning in my head. The main novel, which I’m planning on calling Fine Tune, is still forming in my mind. But I’ve already written just under 12,000 words for a prequel. So far the two books will be under the banner name of ‘Odine King’s Space Adventures‘. […]

It’s set in a futuristic world on foreign planets that have recently been involved in civil unrest and conflict. The story follows Lone Honora, a young adult who as a child escaped the civil war on her […]

My new YA sci-fi book

I’m writing a new story and you know what? God damn I got a good feeling about this one. I’ve already written 20,000 words in two weeks and I think I have a ton more to go. The story focuses on a teen call Ilona and her life on the run from her father in […]

Today was a good day

I’ve recently been going through a word vomit stage of a new idea for a book. But then a few days ago I stalled on it. So after 21 chapters written continuously in a row over a space of about two weeks and somehow managing to lose fire I decided to go off and write […]

The longest part of a story

The longest part of a story is probably when you are two-thirds of the way in. The first third is – yay I’ve just begun a new story. Let this new saga begin 🙂 I’m bursting with energy. The middle third is – this is such a chore. I’ve already done so much already and […]
