Lots of writing. Well, for the first half of the month. Mainly Fidelyon. I got that finished. By which I mean this draft is finished. It still needs a little work before it’s ready for beta readers.
Also, I started my new job at Culvers. I’m enjoying it, so far. Yes, yes. I know. New things are enjoyable and then sometimes they get boring. But I think I’m going to like this job quite a bit. They put me on register on my fourth day. Besides, I get to watch and interact with people. Maybe I’m not quite as much an introvert as I thought. XD
Also, the ‘Hope’ puns started about five minutes after I walked through the door. Some of the managers must really enjoy Star Wars. With my name being Hope and my brother who works with me having the name of Luke… they have fun.
I’ve also been working to prepare Burning Rose for publication (that’s only four days away, guys! *gulps*) I’ll be writing a post in the next month or two about everything I learned about Createspace during the process.
I am pretty happy with this month’s work.
- Fidelyon is done, with a total word count of 240,215. I wrote over 17,000 in the second week of September alone, finishing the novel.
- Snow White is started! I wrote the whole thing, though the second half ended up being a few paragraphs per chapter of a detailed outline. Then I went back, figured things out, and now I’m nearly half done.
- Prepared Burning Rose for publication.
- Write the Snow White retelling for the Rooglewood contest and get it ready for editing (really, this time).
- Read through the whole of Fidelyon and start correcting it.
- Finish and wrap up the Burning Rose launch and write up related checklists and such.
Not quite as exciting as last month. I’ve been doing more outlining than writing. Ready?
- Does the queen sit on the left or right or a king? To the left, generally
Sorry, that’s all I got. Except for technical searches about Scrivener or personal searches about postal service rules.
Time to break out restaurant memes!
Although I must say, serving people is fun. Within set hours, of course. Being an insensitive INTJ who finds rudeness hilarious rather than offensive helps too. Though, to be fair, most people to come into Culvers are very nice. It is a great atmosphere.
Have any fall plans? Have you been to Culvers before? (If you haven’t, you’ve got to go) Do you have your Rooglewood story written yet, if you are entering the contest?
