Starting From Scratch

Today;s Word Count: 828 words

So I decided to scrap the chapter and start over from scratch. I was bored writing it and I just know my readers will be bored reading it.  I felt like no one wanted to watch Stiles cook Polish pastries.

So I started over and I like this draft better than the last one, but it still needs some work and some polishing up.  I’m a panster, and so I had to do some last minute world building for my witches and oh boy I wish I did that earlier. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking to let it go for so long.

I really hope that everything syncs up well when I write it.  *crosses fingers*  I’m hoping to get this update for FSOBE done by the end of the week and get started on Chain Reaction Chapter 3.

Speaking of Chain Reaction, I’m so surprised at all the favorites and comments I’m getting. I’ve just blown away that someone took the time to read my fic, which is more than a bit unconventional.

Anyway, I’m off to rest today and then tomorrow I will get back to writing.

Look Who’s Back!

Today’s Word Count: 503 words

Hey, guys, I’m back.  Work has been killing me and I just got through the backlog of work that occurred during the 4th of July week.  I literally have been working and falling asleep. Then there are whole days that I’m literally too exhausted to move.

However, I decided to get back to my 500 words a day regime to get back to writing. I’m starting on FSOBE this week, and once I finish with that I will be back to writing Chain Reaction.

I actually got my first review for it on FF.net and I’m really happy about it.  Anyway, that’s all I got to say for today. I think what motivated to get back to writing was that horrible trailer for Teen Wolf Season 6B trailer. I was not happy with it or the Sterek baiting and it infuriated me so much that I knew I had to get back to it.

Anyway, I’m done for now. Now, I’m off to do some paying work!

 

Taking A Break

So, I have been slipping on my writing routine lately. Mostly, because I had my day job and my kids have been taking up all my free time. With 4th of July holiday in the middle of the week, I had a lot of stuff to catch up on.

Not to mention, my new blog ‘Dress Them Up’ decided to crash and burn and I have been scrambling to get everything back up. I got %80 of it back up. I still got a lot to do and God knows I haven’t been promoting it at all this week.

Anywhoo, all of my drive to write or to do anything has dried completely dried up. Today, instead of finishing my long list of duties. I have been sleeping like I’m pregnant, and no I’m not pregnant. So I’m taking this week off of writing and I will do my best to get back to my usual schedule.

I hope to have the rough draft of the next chapter of FSOBE next week, and the hopefully Chain Reaction will be up the week after.

 

 

 

Stuck in Editing Hell

Sorry, I haven’t been blogging for a while. I have been swamped with work and I hadn’t had time to write. So this weekend I have been working on editing my much an overdue chapters FSOBE and Chain Reaction.

And my beta for Chain Reaction has gone awol so I have to edit this chapter myself. With my borderline dyslexia, it’s the tenth level of hell.

I’m considering going back to using Dragon Naturally Speaking. However, I don’t really like using it. But what is making this hell that I have gone through at least three drafts to get to this point? I might do an editing and writing combo thing during my second draft.

Read it out loud and revise. I’ll tell you guys how it will work out. Anyway, I will talk to you guys later.

ETA: I have been freed from my editing hell. My beta has come through!
