It has been sometime since I’ve posted an update, and this is what I’ve been up to. I go to school Monday-Thursday and work Friday-Sunday which is keeping me busy…Not that I’ll be busy for long since I don’t have that much longer till this semester is over. My last day is December 8th…I can’t wait since I don’t like going to school 4 days in a row, and next semester is one class only. I’ll of course have to find an internship before I graduate next fall. No worries there since I need to step it up. I’ve been working on Tales From Behind the Counter and AngelWitch the most since I need to get those out soon. I plan on having a 6 book series for AngelWitch, and it will be self explanatory when AngelWitch comes out why it will be six books. Of course this year I want to attempt National Novel Writing Month again, and use the book A Witchy Beginning which will be set in college instead of high school. I want to include elements from The Killer Contract Agency in it, and it will tell you what happens after Salina and Carter took over. You’ll even get to see it play out differently and I can’t wait. All my books are going to involve soulmates since I believe there is someone for everyone. I read a lot too lately and I can’t wait till school is over since I want to write full time instead of work retail which will be a goal of mine. I’m also going to be trying out Kindle Select for the first time since sales aren’t good for me with other outlets. I have 90 days then I can go wide if I wish to. I just want to get through school to have more time to write, and I might want to try other things with the blog too. I just haven’t had time to do much, but once the holidays hit I can write, edit, and publish more…Just need to hang in there and get through school.
November 1st is here which means it’s time for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to have a 50,000 word novel by the end of it. This year I’ve decided to use the third Scarlet book titled Redemption is Mine. The first is done, and I’m half way through the second so writing the third is easier now that I know where it is all going. Of course, a lot is happening this month besides the last few months of this semester. I have the cover reveal of #TheKillerContractAgency and the book is coming out on the 30th. It’s going to be a busy month. Bring it on though because I love a challenge. The laptop, pen and paper, and my USB drives are going to be my best friends as well as my Ipad. I have it all outlined and ready to go. So far I’ve only written a paragraph, but I will pick up the pace and work on it more. My screen name is Wolfdreamer25 if you want to add me as a buddy. It’s going to be a wild ride, and I’ll be sure to update my blog with my progress, and blog throughout all of November. Even if I don’t make videos I will write blog posts at least. Work gets me tired sometimes which is why I don’t film videos as much. Usually I only film on Mondays anyway since that’s my only day off during the school semester at least. I’ll have more time during breaks and the summer so expect more videos then. It’s mainly me working on various projects as I wait for the release and cover reveal.
This November I plan on participating in National Novel Writing Month. It is a challenge to see if I can write a rough draft of 50,000 words by the end of the month. I will have more time to write on holidays, and Mondays with one test at the beginning, and most of them are in December after November 7th. I will use a schedule to keep track of the words, and outline beforehand to know where I will be going. It is time for me to finish the novel Retribution is mine, and since I am rewriting the first 8 chapters I will have to start over again. I had 8 chapters finished, but with this new twist I want to rewrite it all from scratch keeping the outline, and changing it. I am not going to have two different points of view, and I might just put it on my blog for free. It would be better to go with just Scarlet’s point of view because I don’t have a clue on how to balance both. It will be in first person, and there will be a few twists thrown in, and it will be hard since this hits closer to home then I want.
I hope I can help people who have been burned by first loves, and show them that through the pain of losing their first love they will find someone cuter, more compatible, and in my case someone who will treat them good. It will touch on the subject of breaking away from an abusive relationship, and even show bad guys always get what is coming to them. It will show what real love is versus the love we experience when we are younger. I had no idea what true love was like until I met my fiancée. It was better than I imagined, and I know this guy will stay with me no matter what, and he won’t give up on me when times are tough which is what I am going to show in the novel. I have procrastinated long enough, and now it is time to finish it once and for all. Plus, writing is my therapy, and if I don’t write this out I will never be able to get over it.
I will be keeping track of my progress, and blogging more frequently to show people how it is going, and for people to check in too.
Anyone doing National Novel Writing month too? Have you started an outline yet? Know what you are going to work on?
