We Back

It's been a busy week of trying to focus on editing but I'm finally done. And now I can get back to cranking out the rest of the novel. Most likely 5-6 more chapters. Yay! The editing process was actually kinda rough. Almost every time I found something that didn't agree with my current stylistic… Continue reading We Back

Destiny Islands

It's been probably about a year since I posted this the first time. I've made a lot of changes since then and I guess I'm just trying to find out if there are still more changes that need to be made. I've said before that I think the first chapter is the most important for… Continue reading Destiny Islands

Progress tho

Finished the draft of chapter nine last weekend. Using an unreliable narrator on top of increasing amounts of metafiction is challenging, to say the least.

Welp. Here's the entire first chapter if you'd like to take a look. It's about 7,000 words or about 30 pages, by the way. If you're feeling up to the task and have already read the bit I shared before, there's a big ole horizontal line where you left off. I almost didn't share this… Continue reading A Little of your Time

Finding my Way

So, I guess in an effort to stick to my guns in a previous post about criticism and feedback, I wanted to share a short excerpt (roughly six pages in Word/2,000 words) from the beginning of the novel I'm currently working on. I haven't shared it without people I don't know personally in quite some… Continue reading Finding my Way
