Distraction Free

Today’s Word Count:  760 words.

I’m done with Chapter 11 of FSOBE! I need some cleaning up but I’m so happy to be done and well within my self-imposed timeline.  It’s 1700 words and I actually dropped off a huge bombshell in it that I will keep mum so I won’t spoil you, dear readers.  I still have to edit Chapter 10, but I probably in the next few weeks.

Tomorrow I start on dissecting my first draft of ‘Chain Reaction’. I’m totally excited, and I’m literally chomping at the bit to get my hands on it! I just have so many ideas and so many ways to get this. I also have to get Bruce Wayne’s voice down pat, because I will be giving him POV scenes. I still haven’t figured out what the overall arch is going to be but that is part of the fun in my opinion.

I have dipped my toe into web serials and I’m totally excited to see what comes out.  I have a love and hate thing with Wattpad, I know it’s a great way to get discovered and to build a fanbase as a writer. However, Wattpadd is like going to a foreign country and not knowing how to speak the language.

Does anyone know a good alternative to Wattpad, or can recommend some good books on Wattpad? Because I’m coming

And I’m so damn picky when it comes to stories, that the lot of stories I find there are not all that good. I know,  I’m being a hypocrite, especially my writing is not exactly J.K. Rowling or Stephen King level of awesome.

But as the good fish Dorie once said, “You just got to keep swimming, swimming, swimming!”

One last thing before I go,  so I have gotten in the habit of turning off my internet and typing into Google Docs on full-screen mode.  I use the offline Chrome extension and it works like a charm. It really keeps me from wandering on Facebook (I’m a Facebook junkie okay?) or Twitter. As I said, having a set time to write (Nap time) and keeping to it by getting offline has saved me as a writer. I totally recommend it.

Well, that’s all I have to say for today. I will talk to you guys later!
