Still writing that Assassins’ Guild novella, still trying to figure out if using only one point of view or multiple. Doing the Points of View Workshop currently isn’t helping, because I know it’s a third person story and I know who it’s about, but I’m not sure if it should have multiple POVs or just onw. So I’m writing one POV now and then I’ll see how long it becomes before “expanding” it with more characters’ POV.
I translated Colors and found a couple of mistakes (castle names switched) that escaped both myself and Mighty Editor. So I corrected the ebook single, but not yet the two collections it’s in, since I’m translating those back into Italian – so if I find more mistakes, I won’t have to re-upload 4 files (2 ebook and 2 POD)! 😉
If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, here’s the article for you from an award-winner. I don’t really write every day, I’m more a binge writers, like the ones she mentions, but at the end of the week I have my wordcount down (when I’m not traveling, that is, LOL!). I’m not doing NaNo (I write all year round), but here’s my wordcount for the last couple of weeks (when I came back from my trip and started writing again after 3 loooong non-writerly weeks):
Mon.Oct.24 – no words
Tue.Oct.25 – 1096 w0rds
Wed.Oct.26 – 1422 words (and earthquake)
Thu.Oct.27 – 1802words
Fri.Oct.28 – 1273 words
Sat.Oct.29 – 1425 words
Sun.Oct.30 – 3653 words
Mon.Oct.31 – 857 words
Tue.Nov.1 – 3653 (holiday in Italy)
Wed. Nov.2 – 1282 words (and back to DayJob)
Thu. Nov.3 – no words
Fri. Nov. 4 – 1387 words
Sat. Nov.5 – 2750 words
Sun. Nov.6 – 1759 words
Grand total: 22539words, which is well over my goal of 10K a week, although I have to catch up the “dry spell” of the previous 3 weeks! 😉 As for this week, well, Monday no words, Tuesday I used it to go through the novella I’ve written so far after watching the second week of the POV workshop…
I’m more than halfway through, but I need to check a few facts from old stories, so I used the “break” to check those facts and circle back to the beginning to adjust the point of view. I could have waited until the workshop is over, but since I had to stop writing new stuff, I thought I might as well check what I’ve already written while I was at it.
Today I’ll get back to new words and hopefully by Sunday I’ll have another 10K done and the novella finished! 😉
And if you’ve been wondering about book bundles, here’s an excellent article on how it works. I’ve been only in one bundle so far, but I’m thinking of becoming a curator and do my own bundle with other authors, although it will probably be next year.
If you’d like to share a bundle with me, sign up with Bundle Rabbit and let’s find each other! 🙂 In the meantime I might manage to get into Story Bundle as well… if I send them links to my books, that is! 😀
I could also bundle my own books like I do on DriveThruFiction, but bundling with other authors is a win-win situation for all… much like the shared promo of last weekend! I did sell 3 discounted copies of Rajveer the Vampire (2 on Amazon and 1 on Kobo), so I guess that worked! 😉
Now both Rajveer and Kaylyn are back to 6,99$… until the next promo! 😉 That’s all for today! Have a great week!
