I finished another book, world can you hear me.

I am so happy I have finished technically my third book,(NEW MOON adult ER) the first draft is never the best, but the fact I now have something to work with brings me immense joy, writing is not easy like anything in life worth striving for its always harder, but when that struggle is something that you are passionate about then it makes it worth while.

I will post some excerpts in a few months I have to finish the edits of my first novel and then get this one edited and hopefully 2013-14 I will have four books that are well written and ready to query as well I am estimating I don't know that it will take that long right now that is not something I can control all I can control is simply writing.

Now I have two books left of 2011 that I will finish both YA they are at a half way point so hopefully I will be done one of them in a month and the last one before the spring.

Perception (its my first long post)

Perusing a few blogs lately, I found a few discussions relation to blogging and getting tired, of it Natalie Whipple had a post in which she discussed how exposed she now felt since getting the news she will be published, people assumptions of her etc. Then I read Amanda Hocking Blog in which she spoke about the frustration when in interviews the question focused on how much she made off her e-published books she would like people to focus on the fact she was in love with her novel from its inception. Both discussions are different but not really much of a stretch because both situations relates to the perception of people, the more I learn about the business the more I realize there are things that will be out of my control, and from the experiences I read of other writers/authors the control gets less when they are published, such as deals, an author obviously wants the best advance possible come on we all have to be honest, the flip side of this is that the more you get the more books you'll have to sell to enable the publisher to earn back the advance, its not guaranteed that will happen and only a handful of writers have surpassed the expectations of their debut book, i.e. J.K Rowling, Stephenie Meyer there are plenty more but these are the two presently most people recall.

I believe the key to surviving in the business is trust. First trust in your dream and willingness to never give up, I have been pursuing my dream since June 2009, back then like most aspiring writers I didn't take it serious and queried way too early, you can check previous post how this went, you will likely guess right, it didn't go good.

Secondly if and when I am agented/published I plan continuing trusting the people around me that will help me at my dream, in addition, focus on the pro and cons so speak of decisions that come your way, the fact of human nature is that no one can control what a person says, if you are in a setting in which you can fake smile and then walk away without giving the person the satisfaction is sweet but rare. For writers that too is rare you can't control assumptions or bad reviews, I recently got upset when I read a review for an awesome upcoming writer if you haven't checked her out do so she also talked about blogging and other perspectives on this topic as well.

I finally did it added my signature this took so long to figure out, I am working on epilogue of my first novel, ten pages almost at my goal, but its not easy writing a epic fight scene, I had to have one antagonist I had two basically the first one was giving orders to the antagonist of the main character, it didn't work for my story so I had to finish him off.

Nanowrimo novel/SUBHUMANS

Man time flies, soon Nanowrimo, I have done the outline of the story that will be difficult for me to write because of the premise but I am so passionate about it, so hopefully this year I will get to the goal of 50K and who knows maybe in the future I'll query it. Okay I am still on my blog respite but I had to announce this, if you are participating this year good luck, have fun writing.

Playlist for this novel.

Blog respite

I am on a blog break, I won't be gone long, I need the break to finish hopefully four books, or realistically one book before the Christmas break, I struggled with this decision because blogging is integral for writers, but my distractions of wanting to conclude my wip (adult ER) had been taking that time and I cannot blame my muse because it has been awesome for me and my ten plus pages per night.
