Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Twenty-One

Script-21black-01

There’s nothing happy to say about this chapter.

It was one of the hardest to write, and even harder to revise.

Ever get so attached to your characters that you actually feel guilty for ruining their lives?

Enter Chapter Twenty-One.

*sigh*

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Fifteen

HOLY CRAPBALLS!  How did this happen?

As I told my Wattpad followers, remember that time you edited your draft so much that you were much further into your revisions than you initially thought and were able to get two chapters revised and updated in just as many days??

HELLS YEAH I DO!

So Chapter Fifteen has posted.

We have had a time lapse and are now on the eve of Alexstrayna’s coronation.

Will it go off without a hitch? Or will Reylor and his minions crash the Empress’ festivities?

Only one way to find out…

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Fourteen

Fourteen-Logo-2

So let me tell you a little bit about Chapter Fourteen.

It’s brand new.

That’s right.

This is, in essence, a brand hew, first time ever seen, draft of a chapter that was never done before.

You’re welcome.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Thirteen

Chapter Thirteen has been posted!

Don’t let the unlucky stigma of the number fool you – in this chapter, Alex and Treyan get VERY lucky…

I have to say it’s one of my favorites, to date.  And I think they only get better from here.

It was also the chapter that, in essence, took me the longest to revise.

For a time, I had a version 1.5 out there, and I had stopped at a certain love scene one would find in this chapter, because I didn’t really know how I wanted it to happen.  And then I pretty much just stopped revising all together.

Initially, what happens in this chapter I had happen back in Chapter Ten after Alex and Treyan shared their late-night snack, but I considered it a bit and decided they needed a little more time to get more up close and personal.

Just a little.

So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Twelve

What’s this?!

I told you I was productive on my trip.

Chapter Twelve for Two Thousand Years posted last night, where we finally find out Treyan’s fate on that infirmary bed.

WriteOn can be found here.

Let me know what you think!

I have returned!

new cover

And with me, I bring something new!

That’s right, a new cover for Two Thousand Years!  Isn’t it so much more majestic than the old one?

Why the change?  Because I wanted to.

I’m finally getting into the meat of my story and I’m thinking I need more drama than floating rainbow orbs (which was exactly what I google’d when I search for the initial picture way back when).

Anyway, I’m back home now and ready to get into the normal swing of things once again.  San Francisco was awesome, and I suggest anyone who hasn’t been there to visit it ASAP.

I was also extremely productive while I was there – I found plenty of time to revise, revise, revise and I should have not one, not two, but THREE chapters posted before the weekend is done.

Maybe.

So thanks for the patience, and I hope I don’t disappoint!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Eleven

number-11

That’s right, lovely followers – Chapter Eleven has been posted!

*pats self on the back*

Now I can focus on more important things… like packing for my trip to San Francisco on Thursday.

Have no fear, though!  Chapter Twelve to the end of the novel are bound together with a rather large binder clip, currently sitting in my backpack, waiting to be carried onto the plane for 6 hours and 45 minutes worth of revising.

Have I mentioned I hate flying?

Anyway, I may have a Flash Fiction posted before I leave – it all depends on how much I can get done between now and then- otherwise I’ll be back to my usual antics after I return next Tuesday.

In the meantime, go read!  Eleven chapters should keep you occupied until I return.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Nine

Nine-603820

I changed my mind- I tend to do that a lot.

Last weekend I had posted the first part of Chapter Nine to Wattpad and WriteOn because 1) it was done, and 2) I knew the second part would take me a lot longer to revise, so better to get something up than nothing at all.

But the more I think about it, the more I consider what’s to come, story-wise, and I’ve decided that Chapter Nine is remaining as it is, and the remainder of the draft will become Chapter Ten.  There’s a lot of heavy dialogue coming up, and I think I need to centralize that more.

So yeah… Chapter Nine is up, Chapter Ten will post this weekend.

Now Playing: Two Thousand Years

Now Playing Music Player

One thing that has always motivated me is music.  And not even when it comes to writing.  I’ve always been a music love, having been a member of the school band from 4th grade to my senior year of high school.  And I always have to have something playing in the background, whether I’m driving my car, taking a shower, or just hanging out around the house.

When I write, it’s not much different, though I tend to let the music play to what’s going on rather than remain in the background.  A HUGE example of this is Two Thousand Years.

Initially, the premise for my novel was inspired by Billy Joel’s Two Thousand Years from his River of Dreams album.  It’s a little-known song but something about it called to me for yeas, and when the time came for me to start something new for NaNoWriMo in 2014, that was the first true inspiration I had.
