Words and Whatnot

Hi there readers 🙂

Throwing a bit of an update your way. Since I’ve decided to write more things than just War of the Sisters, I tweaked the header/name of this site. Now it’s called Words and Whatnot, because I’m super creative with titles. The URL is staying the same because I haven’t changed my name.

Out of Darkness: 49 sales 😮 (I thought I had 52 the other day, but I’d accidentally counted some twice :o. Oops. )

Out of Light: 32k words into the rewrite. Man, I sure missed these characters, it’s nice to ‘see’ them again. I can already see a lot of nonsense I’m going  to cut next draft. I should cut them now, but I’m not quite ready to kill my darlings.

Other Projects: Well, I have three things on back burner that are all started and in various stages of outlines. (From 1k words to about 30k)  Plus another outline for a book in War of the Sisters’ world. But they’re all still cooking so that’s as good an update as y’all get!

Non-Writing: I’m rereading Way of Kings. I like Sanderson. I’m pretty sure I have like three other books I’m supposed to be reading, but I got distracted. (Not surprising.)

Okay, bye! ❤



War of the Sisters 1 Second Draft?

Or maybe it’s third, I don’t remember now. Anyway, I started it today. I’m not going to hold such a rigorous schedule as I did the last two months. One chapter rewrite per day.

Most days that’ll be between 1k and 2k words which is a lot lower than I had been doing for November and October.

I went on a walk today and tried to work out exactly what I’m going to do with the two books. I’m still mostly convinced that I will be combining WotS1 and 2 into one War of the Sisters, with it starting with In the Beginning and ending with The End.

All the pieces are already there except for the slight break between [Spoilers] and the beginning of book 2. At the moment there is a time jump from WOTS1 and WOTS2 of about a thousand years. (Yeah, I know.) I need to fill that in instead of just saying “time passed here are some new characters.”

I have a vague idea of what I would like to go there, but I need to get back into the Lilith and Asherah of book 1, which were a bit different than the Lilith and Asherah of book 2, which is why I’m beginning the rewrite before I write the ‘connecting’ chapters.

I’m going to be reposting the Prologue of WOTS1 in the next couple weeks, it’s been edited a little. It will probably go on its own page rather than an entry. Possibly also a second chapter, haven’t decided yet.

Anyway, that was a long, rambling, nonsensical entry, thanks for sticking with it!
