The Road to Self Publishing- What’s a Revision Anyway?

wara-banner

I haven’t done one of these in awhile, (WordPress says two years? Yikes.) but it’s time for the next installment of The Road to Self Publishing, the series where I pretend to know what I’m talking about while going on my own journey to being a (hopefully selling) self-published author. If you haven’t read the previous entry, First Draft Done, Now What?, you can find it here, or you can find the master post here. As I said before, the master post will contain links to all other Road to Self Publishing posts, so if you’re not reading this one close to the post date, I’d check out that one.

December One

NaNo-2017-Winner-Twitter-Header

It’s December! You know what that means? That’s right, it means:

The end of NaNoWriMo!

I’m proud to announce that I won it this year. How about you? Did you win? If not, how many words did you get?

Or maybe you didn’t participate in NaNoWriMo, so the beginning of December just means the dreaded holiday season. In that case, happy holidays!

With NaNo being over, I’ve now got more time to post here, so expect something within the next few days. Well, that’s all for today. See you on the next thing I post, and, whether you do NaNo or not, keep writing.

Introducing!

Forgive me, this one’s a bit late, but welcome everybody to NaNoWriMo! If you’re doing it, how’s it going? Are you ahead? Behind? Exactly where you need to be? Well, I seem to be doing pretty well, but I haven’t done one of the things that makes it feel real to me yet, so, I’d like to introduce my project for this year’s NaNoWriMo: ASH

It’s actually a rework of a previous NaNo project that has been sitting ever since. This year, I’ve decided to use NaNoWriMo as a sort-of revision pass for this book, since there are enough problems in the first draft to necessitate a full rewrite anyway. I think I’ll use this as a Road to Self Publishing post after NaNo is done, provided that this turns out to be a success.

But, while we’re here, does anyone want to share their NaNo project? Or maybe just add me as a buddy? You can find me here or drop something in the comments.

NaNo Prep

Is anyone else, like, way behind on NaNo prep? I don’t even have an inkling of an idea yet. By this time, I usually have something, but this year? Nothing.

With that said, who else is doing NaNo prep this month?  How’s it going? Are you disastrously behind? Or maybe you’re ahead of schedule? Do you even do that much prep in October?

The Forgotten- Redux

I’ve been much busier than usual this week, so I don’t have a story for you. I know I promised that regular posts would be returning this weekend, and I intend to keep that promise. So, with that in mind, I’ve prepared something a little different.

Instead of a story, I’m posting and excerpt from my work-in-progress, tentatively titled The Forgotten. For anyone who didn’t read my pre-NaNoWriMo posts, this is based on an earlier story I wrote by the same name. You can read that one here. So, without further ado, I present to you, and excerpt from The Forgotten. Continue reading “The Forgotten- Redux”

December

nano-2015-winner-banner

So, it’s officially December first. NaNoWriMo has come and gone. How did you all do? I am proud to announce that I won. It will be quite some time before there is an actual book from this, but I’ll let everyone know when I do have one.

In the meantime, regular weekly posts will resume this weekend. Is there anything you’d like to see here? Let me know.

NaNoWriMo

So, it’s been over a week since NaNoWriMo started. How’s everyone doing? I’m doing well, as of writing my word count is 15,717. I know some of you may have already hit 50,000, but being on track is still good enough for me.

This brings me to the next thing I want to say. I haven’t made a story post in over a week and I’m very sorry about that. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to keep my schedule of a story a week while also keeping up with NaNoWriMo. So, it is with a heavy heart that I must say, I won’t be posting another story until December. To anybody who reads and enjoys my stories, I’m sorry. There will be more in December.
