First Day of EdMo

Okay so I'm posting this a little bit too late but I just wanted to sleep yesterday. After a full day at uni I hadn't much energy to do much :) Anyways, I did a full two hours for the first day. Got through 35 pages of Pirates, which is pretty good. Found some mistakes and found out that I add a lot of filler characters when I start a story. Characters who don't need to be there, or don't need to be described so much. Anyways got the day completely to myself today, soo onwards!

So very close

8 Scenes left of Rose Garden and my goal to have it finished by March is looking very achievable! I'm hoping for a few big pushes to get it done within the next couple of days. this should give me time to get ready for both uni and the edits of Pirates!

So far Rose Garden is 106k long!

Word Counts and Rose Garden

I have always aimed for a word count with my writing. eg. 100,000. Yesterday as I was cruising the net, I come across a very useful page. On that page they were talking about how some stories are not meant to be novels and others are meant to be long. They made the point of just simply writing the story until it was finished. This really changed my outlook on a novel. It always worried me if my novel was less than my goal, when really it shouldn't worry me at all!

Anyhoo, this also made me think about my word length for Rose Garden. It easily makes 100k. But now it is just a question of where it is going to stop. I'm no longer going to focus on the length of the novel. Rather I am going to look at how many scenes I have 'planned' until the finish. So 15 scenes to go... at the moment... seeing as my muse is throwing four new scenes at me for every scene that I write, I could end up with a lot more scenes! lol Though I really am hoping to finish Rose Garden soon! Here's to hoping! ^^

Bogged down.

I think I might have taken on a bit more than I can chew this year. I start Uni this year, and I have just moved to a whole new place -- it is the first time living on my own.

I has also taken on 2yn once again, I still have to finish Rose Garden which has turned into an 8 book series and I want to finish Pirates so that I can try and get it published. Add to that the fact I have started writing a story with a friend, and that I still have to finish writing Blood Donor along with the course How to think Sideways and I have to write The Dead Isles which is the second book of Pirates. I have a whole lot on!

I also have this strange ability to continue to think up story ideas at the moment. I'm going to be completely snowed under for a very long time!

The Slog Day 2

And so the slog begins again. I got my 50k in NaNo. Didn't do much in the way of writing during December. This month is going to be different. I will be writing 2k a day to get the last few thousand words of the novel complete. Then its time to work on the other million novels I have going at once.

Nano day 22

As per is me, I haven't updated in a while. So far the novel is coming along good. I'm really enjoying writing it. Quite the thrill.

Just passed 41k now.


“Go with them. Find Hayley. Then follow your heart.” Hartley pressed the necklace that Jason wore, the same one Anthea had given him. It glowed warm for a minute before going cold again. “Do not go looking for your destiny. Let it find you.” Hartley bowed to him, and within the blink of the eye was gone.

Secunda grabbed his wrist. “Do not worry about him. He is an old soul. He will be fine.”
