I’ve been neglecting my other story The Backup Girl for the past few months now. But in the last few days I went and did another edit on it 🙂 I think it should be done by the end of this year actually.
Now I just need to give it to a few more beta readers.
Finally managed to create a book cover good enough for this book. I’ve gone through many images but I think this is the best one 🙂
I’ve just finished another draft (fourth/fifth?). I think it’s finally getting there 🙂 I’m hoping to have it done and published in a few months. At the moment it’s 30,500-ish words long. It has thirty plus chapters and I’m worried that some of them are a bit short, but I’m at the stage where I’m not really adding or subtracting words.
I’ve just completed the first edit of my third book 🙂 So far it’s around 30,000 words and it’s probably going to stay around that as well. I usually don’t add or take much when I edit.
I was able to do the entire thing in about 9/10 hours over the course of a day off from work. I didn’t need to do much as I think the quality of the first draft was pretty good. It was the fact that I had a rough chapter plan in place. It meant I didn’t have to worry so much about forgetting things as it was already written down.
I’m about twenty chapters in on my third book 🙂 About another twelve to go. I’m hoping to have this young adult done by then end of the year. Sometimes writing these chapters have been like scraping nails on a chalkboard. But the closer I get to the end the better 🙂
I want this year to be my most productive so far. I’m 26 and I figured that I should have been further along in my writings by now. And I’ve only got myself to blame for that. But the older I get the better equipped I think I am for writing. You know, I’m more mature brain thinkings and stuff.
So I’m hoping to have the first draft done by the end of May and maybe a second draft by June’s end, or whenever, depends on how things will go.
It’s a sci-fi and I’ve already got a chapter plan for a large chunk of the book already. I’m already on my fourth chapter too 🙂 So far the direction that it’s going is revenge . . maybe. It depends where I will take it. So far it feels good and it was a story line that I only recently pulled out of my head 🙂
