This is the last week of responses for the Love Your Novel writing challenge. I've had a lot of fun with it and am still working hard to keep going with my second novel. Read on to see my responses...
Love Your Novel Writing Challenge - Week 4 Responses
This last round of responses might have been the most challenging yet. Editing 5000 words of my novel means tackling about 3.5 - 4 chapters. Choosing a particular author and novel which inspires me is hard on any given day.
The most confusing of all was the prompt about 'tense'. I'm not sure how this helps me with my current WIP, though it may have been a bigger help to others. That was my least favorite prompt.
Certainly, the most helpful ones were the 5000 word edit prompt and the ones which focused on characters since I think my work might be more character driven than plot driven. Does anyone else find analyzing your own work to be quite the daunting task?
Since I had to put these out of order because of the photo shapes, I'll relist here /in order/ and also provide links for the last photo so you can also check out these interesting WsIP from some hardworking authors.
Tor growled low in his throat. “Don’t lump us all together. Tanderali traditions run deep. And ever since the Sekot Mundei gained a foothold in our clan, people who show any kind of deviation from the perceived norms started disappearing. Besides,” he continued, “Zec and I are moving on in a few dawnings. You know how the Divini’I are about gifts of Andurdrao. Any babes born showing any kind of abnormalities, from physical deformities to strange abilities, are seen as a threat. They’re either abandoned, murdered outright, or offered up as sacrifices. I must get him to Bal Shif for proper training before anyone can gain proof of his gift.” He sighed and hung his head. “The Guild is too busy seeing to the normal running of things. I doubt they see the truth of what’s going on before it’s too late to do anything about it.”
In spite of my efforts to the contrary, I'm severely behind on my writing schedule. As such, I'll be dropping back to posting twice a week. I've decided to keep posting my Wednesday book reviews, since I'm enjoying all the reading I'm getting done and I want to help spread the word about good books. Fridays will be dedicated to writing challenges, either IG inspired or simple challenges I'm facing every day. I may post on some Mondays but those will be random until summer when I may have more time and my newest book will be needing more promotion. One exception will be this coming Monday.
I have a surprise to share. My ebook cover is put together! I'm super excited that it's done. At least, I think it is done. It would be nice to have some other opinions. Then perhaps I could share it to the world with confidence. :)
