A Couple Things I’ve Learned

During the writing of Out of Darkness and the currently (cleverly) named ‘Book 2’, I’ve learned a couple things.

The first of these is: Never, ever claim you are close to done. (Seriously, don’t do it.)

If you read back (you probably shouldn’t) there are several posts of me claiming to be almost done, nearly done, one step away from done, and lastly, dangerously close to done. Guess how many of those have been right so far. (Actually, don’t guess.)

This post is not going to say how close to done I am, dangerously or otherwise, because we know how that will end. Instead, it’s just an update.

Out of Darkness has been out to an editor and I’ve cleaned up, clarified, added, and deleted most of the things they mentioned. I’m going to send it back to them in a few days, and then they’ll send it back. Once that is done, maybe I’ll have another update that’s a little more exciting.

The second thing I’ve learned: I’m not good at thinking up multiple items for entries titled “A Couple Things I’ve learned.”

 

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!

Well, I didn’t forget about y’all, but I did take a break. Because I got sick. Then I had to go to the ER, and now I’m dopey on pain pills.

So I didn’t write for the past couple days 😡 Yay me. the NaNo site says I just have to write 1200 a day to keep up, so I plan on getting back to it tomorrow. Good luck everyone!

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 11

No, I totally didn’t almost forget to write this post, what are you talking about? I’m a bit ahead of schedule, maybe? According to the little chart I have, I just need 984 words per day for the rest of the month to hit 50k. So that sounds about right.

Day 11 words: 1715

Total Words: 32028

Today I edited an Asherah chapter. I got lost in it. Apparently, I get lost at this point every time because I have notes saying I got lost when I read it last. (The good kind of lost.) It’s when I hit these chapters that I really enjoy reading it over again, reliving these lives. Time for bed, y’all have a good night!

Favorite line from today:

“We’ll mourn this, pet, I promise you. Just not now, now we run.”
