NaNoEdMo Update

I wanted to edit two projects. . . it down to one as I do not have part three of my thriller typed (It will be Camp NaNo in April’s project)

I am working on paranormal book The Whispering Path. It has over 180,000 words (overwritten, I tell the story like in three different ways within the same book.)

 

I love to write. I hate to edit, so I need to make a list of things I enjoy so I can treat myself.

Treats for editing

  1. Watching Youtube videos
  2. Candy
  3. Jokes
  4. Blogging
  5. Short stories
  6. movies
  7. make favorite dinner
  8. Yoworld (facebook)
  9. Go for a walk
  10. Shopping

Review: Bloody Mary: A Short Story

Bloody Mary: A Short Story

By Alexis Tiger

I would give 3 out 5 stars. (I know the process of writing a story.)

It was a simple and short story, a very easy and quick read.  It was a bit too short. I kept wanting to turn the page to read what happened next.

I wanted to know the relation to each of the characters, were they friends since 4th grade or neighbors, etc.

However I feel it needed more.  I wanted to know what happened to character after the horror.
The horror and murder description was pretty good. I wanted to know more of what the characters knew about the Legend of Blood Mary. (As each legend varies from place to place.)

Over all, it was a quick and nice read.

If you want a quick horror story based off an Urban Legend, then you should check it out.

NaNoEdMo

I am participating in Editing in March. . . 50 hours of editing in 30 days.

I’m Rebekah1213 on https://www.nanoedmo.com/members/rebekah1213/

It means typing, rereading, editing, rewriting on my projects. I will doing this on two of my projects. . .

I think I am going to work on

  • my novella trilogy “Driving Lies” I have get the third novella typed on the computer and majorly edit the first two parts.
  • my novel “The Whispering Path.” I realized it is very overwritten. It needs to be majorly tweaked.

I have other projects, but those are two that I know are finished and could be edited.

My other projects will be worked on during Camp NaNo this year.

A Book Review: Sinful Cinderella

As a fellow writer, I try to read as much in my genres as I can. I also try to review books when I can. . .

There was a dark book I got on Amazon that I could not put it down.

“Sinful Cinderella” (Book 1 from Dark Fairy Tale Queen Series) by Anita Valle

I enjoyed the twists and turns and liked the Gothic imaginary.
I look forward to reading the next books in the series.

There are three mottoes from this book . . . 

  1.  “Be careful of what you wish for.”
  2. “It can always be worst.”
  3. “What goes around, comes around.”

This not the the light, sweet Disney version. I happy it is dark and twisted.

3 AM I Ideas

So my sleep schedule is off. . . it is now 3 am in the morning.

I was scanning my facebook main page. . . as one of my many distraction as lately.

There was a post to share the link of your first published book.

Here’s my link. . .

https://www.amazon.com/Whispering-Path-Ms-Rebekah-Wolveire/dp/1463674309/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1550045233&sr=8-6&keywords=The+whispering+path

The Whispering Path. (2011)

It was even under my old pen name Rebekah Wolveire

It hit me . . . I know I need to reedit and rewrite (after eight years of learning of the writing career and how to better your novels and such etc). I plan to write and reedit this book and make an e-book this summer.

So this is what happens to me at 3 am in the morning.

So please look for  The Whispering Path in the Summer of 2019. (As long as I do not get distracted.)

My Happy Time

I’ve been dealing with wifi issues. . . so I have time to write and I have no focus, sigh.

My favorite time even now. . . just sitting in front of a screen and getting ready to type.

I loved the time when I was with my ex (may he rest in peace.) The four hours I have while he would sleep (while our sleep schedules were overlap). I would drink my soda or coffee and work on my writings. ( I especially loved it during NaNoWriMo time.)

I wish I could have those four hours by myself at least Monday thru Friday.

I just want to write each day for so many hours and have focus while I have that time. (Currently, I just try to plug myself in to my music and focus so that all those around disappear and I can simply focus on whatever story I am working on.)
It’s my happy time.
