Wooo, I’m so late today! It’s almost midnight! A lot of little cuts today, sentences here and there.  I ended up spending quite a while changing a creature’s name. I spent over an hour googling different languages for snow, ice, and cold. It was kind of fun learning some of them. I also had to google what happens if a copper statue is struck by lightning. Doesn’t seem like a whole lot, really.

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 6

Hello, hello! So far so good on the quick little entries to keep me accountable. I’ve finished a little earlier than yesterday which is good!

Day 6 words – 2,295

Total words – 23,709

No little insights today. It was an Asherah chapter. Some things did need to be restructured, and I think I’m getting a better hand at adding ‘flavors’ to the narration that make it more noticeable who the PoV is for that chapter, instead of relying on their name being listed somewhere.

And that is all, see y’all tomorrow! 🙂

Hey everyone!

Day 5 Words –  1234 (heh, neat)

Total Words –  21387

Things I noticed today: Lilith talks to herself. A lot. I think some of her chapters need more fleshing out so instead of Lilith walking us through her thoughts they are a little more apparent.

 

 

 

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 4

Hello there!

I procrastinated again today, didn’t end up starting till almost dinner, but that’s fine. I decided to edit two chapters to try and get ahead of my daily goal.

Day 4 Words – 3162

Total Words – 20166

Goal – 50,000 words. (probably should have done chapters/editing time but this feels more impressive to me, for some reason.)

Things I noticed in editing today: Not a whole lot. There was some stuff that needed cut, like descriptions I’d already done. I had to reference my characters dress since she had lost it along the way. And wishy-washy feelings that had to be pushed one way instead of in the middle. Today I edited chapters 9 and 10. 10 is Morgan’s first chapter. I like her, she’s one of my favorites.

I think Morgan and Asherah were always my favorites in this book. I like their relationship and the way they talk to each other.

I realized something the other day. I think Morgan is my true Main Character. Though there are a handful or so of PoV, she’s the one that is the most important, it’s really her story I’m following. I wonder if maybe I need to restructure book 2 to show that better. (But that’s neither here nor there!)

 

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 3

Hello, hello.

Welp, I’m super late today! Also maybe a little short. I’m supposed to be at ~1500 a day and I haven’t been. I’ll catch up soon, though.

Day 3: 1275

Total: 17004

Things I noted today: Asherah mysteriously lost her dress between chapter 8 and 9. Oops!

Was working all day and ended up just barely squeaking in before bed time! Hope everyone else had a productive day!
