Nanowrimo Update #1

Well, its been about two months since I finished nanowriomo with around 58,000 words. Not much has happened. Christmas got in the way, and then me restarting my YouTube channel... but I want to edit it. I may take every other nap time and just focus on editing--that way I can still take the odd naps and do YouTube stuff. It's hard to want both worlds.

So far I think the beginning of my book needs to be fixed. I just start right off with a scene, I think it needs to be reworked a bit. I also keep getting bogged down in my tenses. Or, my lack of them. I jump around so much I annoy myself. I keep just going back and putting things in the right tense and trying not to get confused about what tense I'm supposed to be in...I wish I wasn't dyslexic sometimes. I bet it would help. But maybe then I wouldn't be me and I wouldn't be able to do what I do. Semantics. Who knows.

I still want to self publish my book this year. I need to get it edited, then a friend wants to edit (Hi Jonathan) and then my mom, and then I will offer it to you guys to edit and then I will offer it to the world. (eeeeek)


Unless it sucks.

I really hope it doesn't suck.

Anyway, that's what is happening with The Book, that still doesn't have a name, by the way. I think that will come last. Who knows.

I still hope to get 10-20,000 more words added, fleshing out scenes and characters and stuff.

More news, hopefully coming soon! And a book. I still get a little thrill when I realize I actually wrote a book.
