Re: I Wrote Today!


Progress!

I have more ideas for my Zell story - he gets to see the ugly underbelly of a slave society.

Konrad is saying hi. He wants me to finish part 2 and move into part 3, where he finds Laura's mother and gets to become Royal Consort in the end.

My cover designer is getting better and better with dragon covers, and so Sidren of Dragon Prey is telling me she wants to be done with the adventure... and find peace and happiness.

Borderline has sold 4 times, and been downloaded for free three times.

And I'm ready to drop, but there's another day waiting for me with much to do.

Re: I Wrote Today!


I wrote over 4,300 words today. All in skin postings and CSS coding for [sign in to see URL] (nothing on any of my stories though which makes me sad).

That's a LOT of writing. emoticon emoticon emoticon

But yes, diverting some of that to stories would be cool.

I didn't write. I'm tapping to deal with the sense of failure - Borderline doesn't sell anymore.

Re: I Wrote Today!


Instead of editing or coding, I felt like writing a little bit before going to work this morning. So I added 355 words to my "Transit Promises" story.

TP word count thus far: 15,135

Tonight, before going to bed, I added 161 words to "Beyond The Window."

BW word count thus far: 4,883

Total word count for the day: 516

  I am pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for me to slide back into "writing mode." emoticon

Re: I Wrote Today!


Rick, that's awesome!

I've been getting hints of feedback from *author I admire*, and my writer brain got active.

So now I know what I want to fix in my Minotaur story. I just need to slip in those scenes.

Rick: Yay for the 5k!

Jox: Yay for writing!

I managed the first scene, and still have to do the second one.

I also ordered a cover for the Minotaur tale. That was very stressful for a moment or two...

Re: I Wrote Today!


This long weekend has been wild.

I've been getting hints about my paranormal romance from an author friend I totally, utterly admire. In fact, she linked a story of hers from her blog that just blew me away. Perfection... mine is lame in comparison. (She didn't do it to brag, but to illustrate some points she wants to make.)

So I edited my tale and added background and depth (and accidentially sparked a whole huge series idea), and I also realized I need to make my bed scenes much more magical and fun. More work! (But in a good way. I'm glad I'm doing it before publishing that story!)

Sales of Borderline have been trickling in. I got feedback about three typos - will fix those quickly and re-upload.

I feel as if I'm on a runner's high with my tales. So exceited, so inspired. And I can't wait until I get home so I can write or plot again.

Re: I Wrote Today!


Editing themes and layouts for Runboard (totaling over 12,000 words in coding and design) has taken most of my free time.

I added seven words to "Transit Promises" today which allowed me to start the "May posting" on the story.

TP word count thus far: 15,142

Re: I Wrote Today!


But you wrote! emoticon

I wrote over 2k in a story yesterday that won't see the light of day, most likely. I just needed to get something off my chest.

I also added to Dodekatheoi #2, and I'm deep in plotting that tale. So far, I have identified two groups of antagonists. Not sure how they will interact with each other (they should be natural antagonists to each other, as well) and my MCs. Lessons from feedback (more below) will be applied.

And this morning, I finally found the courage to open the feedback from my author friend. And she ripped the Minotaur story to shreds, in the most loving and caring way. I am grateful. It hurts, but I am grateful. As it is, I'm probably looking at complete rewrite.

She put her finger on my biggest weakness - I don't take the time to plot my stories well enough. Of course, I don't, I'm a pantser. But I can still plan and devise more obstacles for my characters, and make it believable.

(I also know why I wrote that kind of featherweight story: I am so tired of struggling. SO SO tired of running into walls in every aspect of my life. So my heroine got it easy, and that just doesn't work.)

I'm still excited about all my story ideas. And I am almost more excited about something that's becoming very clear: I'm at the beginning of new growth cycle as author. I can reach the next level, it'll just take some work, some practice and a few stories. But I can grow that way now.

And that feels awesome. emoticon

Re: I Wrote Today!


I started the rewrite of the Minotaur story. And plotted some more for #2. Not quite happy with the plot just yet.

Researching Heraklion today. Anne is offered a prestigious position there which she'll have to sacrifice. I hope there are some archaeological headquarters there. Ahem. (And if not, I'll invent one!) I also think she might be a little older than I thought at first.

I have writing fever. I WANT to write, but at the same time, I can't quite dive into those Dodekatheoi stories. I'll see what happens today.

Re: I Wrote Today!


Yay, yet another story! emoticon emoticon

I wrote a bit yesterday, and did a lot of research - which has led to more thinking and plotting. I can't speed up that process...

I also feel utterly exhausted again, so not sure what will happen today.

Re: I Wrote Today!


Well done!

I wrote a lot (almost 3k words). In something I will not talk about much. New pen name, new genre, simple stuff. Might make me some money. I hope.

Working to get unstuck in my Dodekatheoi stories. I'm realizing I'm not good at plotting. Of course, I never practiced it a lot, either.

I wish I had the time and determination to write 2k every day. It's less the time, actually... that would give me a novella per month. And an author career.

Re: I Wrote Today!


Today was a "crunch day" and was a big test on my newly devised work schedule. This is the results of how it went.

This morning I edited 23 paragraphs on "First Transit" and revised five or six coding declarations on a skin update.

Tonight, I added 67 words to "Incursions." Then I added 158 words to "Transit Promises."

Incursions word count thus far: 572.
TP word count thus far: 15,675

Yay for writing that regularly!

Did you tackle that scene?

I've been writing lots during my vacation, but I didn't document wordcount. That's something I need to change...

I wrote a little scene in my Artemis story this morning.
