I’ve gotten started on the 7 new chapters. I have two done and 5 to go. So far I’ve decided I have to rewrite them before heading back. When I go back its rewrite part 2-3 before going all the way to the beginning to rewrite the thing again. Tons of work. Little time.
Right now though I keep writing and pushing myself forward. My word count has dropped but I think an extra rewrite should put it closer to where I wanted the second/third draft to be at.
I’ve been busy though researching marketing and getting some good ideas of things to do in the upcoming months before I publish Midnight Crimson. One, I did a short story years ..I mean years.. ago. I plan to do a bit more with it and do a few rewrites on it. It was pretty good as I remember and I did it for a creative writing class in college. I got an A on it. Very gritty stuff though. Not sci-fi or paranormal. A bit more real.
I plan to do the short story as a cheap $0.99 ebook with no marketing at all. I want it to be good but I am going to use it for format and seeing how ebooks publish. This will give me a really good base for my novel. I think it will help me work on formatting issues or other problems without it being my main book.
I have to get some sleep now. It’s 12:55am here. I’m a night owl so much I’ve even used the handle nightangel on sites. 🙂
