I sure do like updates.

I hope you like updates too!

Yesterday I purchased a  cover for Out of Darkness! I think it’s really pretty and perfect and whatnot. Now I just have to finish with my editing so I can use it and publish!

I’m over halfway through another read through, I printed out 2 copies (thanks, office depot) and sent one to my mom. Now she’s gonna hopefully be a helpful beta reader for me! There have been fewer and fewer changes each read through, so either I’ve become so used to my story that I can’t see what I need to fix, or (hopefully) it’s nearly capital F finished for real this time.

Of course, now I’m panicking because that means I need to think of words to go on the back of the book, finish the words inside the book, publish it, tell people I published it. Be right back, I think I’m going to faint.

 

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 is 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!

Who needs titles anyway, really?

I should save this update for next week, but I’m not gonna. Draft 2 of WOTS1 is nearly done. I’m at Chapter 44 of 51 for edits. (Which right now is about 10k words right now, but it will probably shorten.)

I have lost nearly 10k words, just as I thought. Unless I add something drastic in the upcoming chapters. (Which I very well might, I don’t know yet.)

After this, I absolutely must take a break before I go back over it for a third pass. I was originally going to jump right into WOTS2’s second draft but I think that’s making it harder to write book 1 because I’m remembering things from book two and forgetting they haven’t happened yet in book one so need to be explained.

Oh, and I still need two titles. But who even uses those? .-.
