So i’ve completed a hundred pages of my book so far. And I still have a lot of editing to do and some continuity issues in spellings of names and places. I will develop a character and change the spelling halfway through to see if i like it better or i will change the way a person looks to fit the character i’m developing. So I will attack it with a red pen soon.
Overall this has been a great experience and i can’t tell you how much i look forward to writing each day. It’s like watching a movie in slow motion. I now what’s going to happen next I just can’t type fast enough to bring it together. But the best thing I love about writing is computers. How if i have the perfect scene and I decide it needs to be moved. I just move into my idea library and pull it when I need it.
I’m keeping the book pretty hush hush until i’ve decided where i’m going with it. Because other peoples view points can really influence my writing. I tend to be a people pleaser and I need to stick to my guns and not be swayed. I am going to write what I would like to read if I walked into a store a picked a book off of the shelf.
But I think I may have my first fan already. I let someone read the first chapter while i was punching it and before i knew it she had gotten 34 pages into it. I loved that she loved my characters and wanted to know more. It is very encouraging. Except that because it is still in edit mode everything may change.
