So… As I’ve mentioned before, I am writing a trilogy, the first book is written, but I’m in the process of revising/editing. I had some people read it, give feedback and advice, and I’m trying to make it the best it can be.
WELL- I have decided that it needs some SERIOUS work. I’m adding in a whole new element, basically giving the antagonist a reason to want to be bad, not just to be a bad guy JUST because he is. AND I am seriously upping the stakes. He isn’t just going to try and kill the protagonist; he is going to do SO much MORE! Because of this, it is taking a lot longer than I had originally thought to edit it. I’m adding a lot more to the story, not just tightening up the writing.
As I’m writing my book, and going through each chapter, one at a time, I’m falling in love with the story all over again! Its pretty amazing! I think, “I would LOVE this book, even if it wasn’t mine!”
And as I continue to read more books, I come more to the realization every day that the story is DEFINITELY good enough to be a real book!
This isn’t just a dream in my head, this is NOT unattainable. I can do this! J
It’s pretty exhilarating when you realize it!
So the update:
POWER, Book 1-
still revising, but half way done with it. I’m hoping to be done revising it in the next month or two, and then I’ll send it out again to some readers for more advice/feedback.
HOPE, Book 2- 17,000 words out of 100,000
TRUTH, book 3- 0 out of 100,000.
FAE WORLD ROMANCE (YA series)- outline is complete, will start writing it after I finish revising POWER.
Children’s books- First 3 in the series are complete and I have queried agents. (Will probably use a pen name for these books)
