This is an Update.

Who stayed up past her bedtime but finished her third draft?

If you guessed anyone but me, then you are just silly. That’s the whole update. It needs another pass, but hopefully not as intense as the past three. Thanks for reading, have a good night!

Second Draft? Done.

War of the Sisters, book 1, draft 2 is now done.

Starting words: 87,299

Ending Words: 82,489

I swear I had lost more than that, either that or I somehow gained more words overnight .-.

I know there┬áis some stuff I’m going to need to add just based on the feedback I’ve gotten already but, my beta readers have it, and I will wait till they’re finished with it to start a third pass to clean up any plot holes, inconsistencies, whatnot. In the meantime, I’m going to rest, read, and learn.

Thanks for reading!

Slacker!

Hello readers, followers, whatever you call yourselves. I should probably update or at least make a post.

I took a week or so off from editing, (slacker!) I was getting too wrapped up in everything and needed a rest. I’m back on it this week. But I think I’m going to try and do editing/writing three days a week instead of six. I think I was getting away from enjoying it and treating it in a way that made it very unfun.

I made a patreon to go with my gofundme just because someone on twitter reminded me that it existed.

Editing on book 1 is almost done, though I’m no closer to a title. I’ve got a list of questions I need to find a way to go back and answer but I think I’m going to save those for the next revision set.

Given the cuts that have taken place already, I think book 1 is going to end up losing about 10k words, putting it at about 75k words by the time it’s done.

That pretty much ends my update, have a good night y’all!

Grammarly, my Amusement with Spam Comments, and Book Updates

Grammarly was on sale the other day, so I bought it. I’m a sucker for sales I guess. I’ve learned I comma splice a lot and that I also forget to use commas in appropriate places. I forget the┬áname for it now.

Now on to my amusement with spam comments. I check Akismet or whatever it’s called every few days, and the spam comments are pretty amusing. They moved on from just putting junk to putting nearly perfectly worded compliments on blogs. I think, a few weeks ago, I actually un-spammed one because I fell for it! I don’t know why that amuses me, but it does.

Regarding War of the Sisters itself, I’m still bouncing back and forth on making it one vs. two books. On the one hand, with two books I don’t have to make any additional chapters. It splits in a nice place and a time jump wouldn’t be too unexpected between two books. On the other hand, if I make it one book I don’t have to think of two titles.

And that is the end of my rambling. Have fun, readers!
