I Really Need to Think of Better Titles.

Of these posts I mean. I feel like I can only title so many things “Hello” or “Update” before it gets confusing.

But hello readers 🙂

Today it looks like Amazon put my paperback on sale so today would be a good day to buy a copy or three!  😛 Of course if ebooks are more your thing this is not on sale but it’s still there!

Work (more work?) has started on Out of Light (book 2) I’ve rewritten the first two chapters, (about 3k words) and possibly made a whole lot more work for myself because of an idea I had. But we’ll see how that goes.

Until next time!

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 5

Hey everyone!

Day 5 Words –  1234 (heh, neat)

Total Words –  21387

Things I noticed today: Lilith talks to herself. A lot. I think some of her chapters need more fleshing out so instead of Lilith walking us through her thoughts they are a little more apparent.

 

 

 

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 4

Hello there!

I procrastinated again today, didn’t end up starting till almost dinner, but that’s fine. I decided to edit two chapters to try and get ahead of my daily goal.

Day 4 Words – 3162

Total Words – 20166

Goal – 50,000 words. (probably should have done chapters/editing time but this feels more impressive to me, for some reason.)

Things I noticed in editing today: Not a whole lot. There was some stuff that needed cut, like descriptions I’d already done. I had to reference my characters dress since she had lost it along the way. And wishy-washy feelings that had to be pushed one way instead of in the middle. Today I edited chapters 9 and 10. 10 is Morgan’s first chapter. I like her, she’s one of my favorites.

I think Morgan and Asherah were always my favorites in this book. I like their relationship and the way they talk to each other.

I realized something the other day. I think Morgan is my true Main Character. Though there are a handful or so of PoV, she’s the one that is the most important, it’s really her story I’m following. I wonder if maybe I need to restructure book 2 to show that better. (But that’s neither here nor there!)

 

This is an about me post.

This post is not about War of the Sisters or writing. It’s about me. I’m just in the mood to ramble, and sometimes I think that’s good enough to post.

So, what do I want to ramble about? Me of course. My name is AmberJade, yes it’s actually spelled that way. No space and a capital J. Hmm, this feels familiar, I wonder if I’ve already written it already. Ah well, you’ll just get to know me twice.

I’m 30 years old, and I live with my fiance and his family in Alabama. (He told me yesterday that he reads my blog. So hello fiance. ❤ I told you I don’t complain about you on here. This is your first mention.) Okay, back to my real readers. (sorry fiance, you don’t count. <3) I have a cat named Zelda, here she is today helping me edit. As you can see she’s a paws on editor. (I made that joke on Twitter and here because I was pretty pleased with it.)

Obviously, I write a lot, but we’re not going over that in this entry. Outside of writing, I like to play vidya games. This week I was kind of neglecting them for Camp NaNo prep, but I was playing Fallout 4 most recently. (I like it, others don’t.) I like roleplaying/fantasy games mostly.

I have a big family. I don’t think they read my blog, but hi to them anyway. Not gonna get too descriptive, don’t wanna make them feel awkward. (Hi, love y’all. <3)

I work online on mturk.com, and while it pays the bills, I 1/10 do not recommend. (but I do love all my people at mturkcrowd.com they are cool beans. hi crowd.)

Okay, I’m tired and have rambled long enough. Thanks for reading.

 

I Got Bored, and then I Rambled.

So, a couple days ago I was bored and unsupervised and bought the little WordPress plan that lets me customize my domain name. Now I’m amberjademccracken.com instead of warofthesisters.wordpress.com I thought that was pretty nifty because I’m easily amused.  It seems to automatically redirect so I don’t think anyone has to do anything. I also put a new theme on, which promptly deleted all my widgets. They are back now, but that was super fun.

It’s only been a couple days since my last update, so I don’t have anything too interesting to say. I’m on chapter 31/49 on my readthrough of my paper copy. I’m moving things around, cutting a little. Killing my darlings so to speak. You know, the fun stuff.

I realized today there are quite a few steps AFTER editing that I’m going to have to deal with soon. Like summarizing, finding a cover, having someone do another read through to point out anything I’ve missed on my other read-throughs. More fun stuff.

This has all been a lot more work than I expected but it’s also been more fun than I expected too.

Anyway, thanks for reading, y’all have a good night!
