I’m just going to date these things now. LOL
So I have started the 6th draft. Oh… Emm… Gee!
The 4th and 5th drafts revealed so much technically wrong, but I forgot about some of the stylistic errors too. So when I decided to listen to it one more time through “NaturalReader”, the fastest way to hear your book out loud I have, you find so much crap that doesn’t sound right! I mean wow! I had forgotten that I had loved doing this for the 3rd draft.
I’d also forgotten how drained it made me. But, I can do around 10 chapters in a day before my brain said “Check please!”
On a side note, my Logo contest is going well after I finally learned how the service I chose works.
A fellow member of the Seraphim started building a major set piece of the novel as a 3d model, and has a video of him working on the rough draft of it that will be coming soon (It’s long and boring but you can hop around to some cool stuff from times. We’ll have to do a sped up version), and I will be getting ready to go for the cover! Woot!
I am sending out requests to schedule an editor for final line item and proofread.
This is now happening so fast.
As I said earlier, I’ve some more content to add for your reading and viewing pleasure.
My Library has grown as I’ve added 5 short stories. They are all Mechwarrior Online fan fiction and Seraphim lore, but I like em, and it has been fun to re-read some of the stories myself. I’d forgotten what and how I wrote some of these, so it’s a fresh look for me, and that’s something really nice to get. As a writer, you never get to see your own work through the eyes of someone who never saw it before. That’s the one sad thing about creating a story. You never get the thrill of discovery. So go check out the short story section in the Library.
I’ve added to my Studio/Theatre 9 of my gaming videos. (Go ahead and check out my youtube channel for over 50 different gaming videos!) I have a lot of fun doing these. To be honest, it’s made me wonder if I should put up weekly events for “playing with the author” to those interested in joining me in a few hours of gaming together. Of course, as it sits, I’m only playing World of Warships and DCUO. But who knows? That might change in the coming months with some of the new games that are scheduled to come out. Regardless, it must be balanced versus working on my writing and my job.
I have, as you can see, very little time to finish editing if I am to meet my Independence Day deadline for you beta readers.
