Hello all! It’s been a ridiculously long time since I was able to get on here and post anything, and I’ve really, *REALLY* missed it!
I’ve made it back! Lol, finally! I had some things that needed to be taken care of on the home front, but now I’m ready to dive back into writing. 😀
It’s a strange thing – when I’m not writing, I’m just not happy. The ideas just roll around in my head, and I can almost *feel* my characters glaring at me from the back of my mind, demanding attention.
First, I have an update for you on the self-publishing that I mentioned *cough, cough* last year *cough*.
I found an editor, so I can finally finish polishing up my first book! Yay! 😀
I have the cover, and the map, and the extra standalone chapters, and now someone to stop me from over-editing by myself, and gutting the whole thing in a mad fit of second-guessing.
I found the amazing Debra L. Hartmann ~ check her out! 😀
We’re starting around January-ish, and she’s been so wonderful and helpful in getting me all prepared. She also taught me about Track Changes. Lol, I had no idea this was a thing, and it’s amazing, and I’m going to use it all the time now. XD
Also, I’m going to be keeping a writing schedule for myself, and to hold myself accountable to this schedule, I have brainstormed some serious consequences, should I fail to post in a timely fashion:
- I will force myself to watch Matrix 3 again… I may have to get some industrial cleaner to get all the dust off it first though.
- No icecream for a week.
- I will refrain from using emoticons for a week. O.O”
See? I mean business here.
Matrix 3 is no laughing matter.
And neither is this:
I love you, icecream. You complete me.
Here’s what I’m planning:
- Mondays ~ something random. Probably movie reviews, or any extras I’d like to share.
- Fridays ~ something story related. A chapter, worldbuilding, or any interesting writing resources I find.
Lol, because I haven’t posted in like a bajillion years, today will be a little different. I’m posting a chapter! 😀 I’m going to post the end of Ascension tonight, FINALLY, and Friday will be a movie review.
In case you need a refresher, because there has been a slight… um… lapse in time since the last chapter…
Previously, in Ascension: Mayun and Toren found the Heshiga, and fought to free him. If they hadn’t been helped by a mystery woman, who momentarily broke free of the enemy’s control, they probably wouldn’t have been able to get close. After returning to Mayun’s city, Kretore, they finally had a chance to talk and clear up any misunderstandings between them, and Mayun claimed Toren as her prasuri.
Now, to wrap it up! 😀
Until next time, Happy Writing! 😀
