I'll go through a rough timeline of the months. :D
June 2015- I began work on Uncertainty
August 2015- I began working on Project Z
November 2015- I wrote the first draft of Awaken
January 2016- I sent it off to beta-readers (I still ask why I sent it so early)
February 2016- I started planning Superheroes
April- I wrote three first drafts in 22 days, a total of 76k words.
I just want to talk about my very first book. I had another blog, and when I read the first chapters I posted there, I cringe. It's horrible! It's clique everything I hate now, although the first chapter of the re-write is better. :D
It was about this girl who was being forced into an arranged marriage, so she ran and became a bandit...Uhhhhh. She was tall, slender, dark haired, good at lying, what in the world? Blugh! I just did a post about girls in book, and this is a perfect example of what-not-to-do.
Because I semi-like/hate the new chapter of the re-write, I'll post a snippet.
Yeah, it's still not good, but it's better! There will be no snippet of the original, sorry. :D I thought about doing a giveaway for Resistance and The King's Scrolls, but I'm broke, so...:P
But anyways! I am actually proud of how much I have improved!
The writing buddies I've obtained, gosh!
Most of them I met on the Jorum such as Alea, Sierra, and Faith Song, but others I met through blogs like Hannah. Alea's blog is one of my favorites ever! And we beta-read for each other, so that was fun! Especially cause her story is amazing! Sierra is basically my writing buddy for life, we occasionally do this:
Sierra: HELP RACHAEL READ THIS STORY AND TELL ME IT'S HORRIBLE!!!
Rachael: *reads it* I LOVE IT!!!
Rachael: HOW COULD YOU WRITE THAT??? I WAS NEVER THAT MEAN!
Rachael: Write! More!
Yeah, she's amazing with giving me honest info, and we write stuff together! Faith Song is an amazing blogging supporter, we occasionally tag each other. :D
That kind of wraps it up, I guess. Thank you so much for reading!
For the comments, ask me a question or two about my writing or life or whatever you want, and I'll answer them in a Vlog Post next week! I may not get them all, but I'll try!
