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
- Watching Youtube videos
- Short stories
- make favorite dinner
- Yoworld (facebook)
- Go for a walk
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.
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.
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
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 . . .
- “Be careful of what you wish for.”
- “It can always be worst.”
- “What goes around, comes around.”
This not the the light, sweet Disney version. I happy it is dark and twisted.
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. . .
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.)
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.
