Long time no update right! I think the last update that I made may have been my thesis update. I miss writing about my writing, but if I am honest, I haven't been doing a ton of actual drafting.
I had three goals for 2017... and I kinda failed them....
1. Edit "The Frituals" to a publishable level.
2. Finish Drafting the then named "Frituals Fatel."
3. Get a B+ on my Thesis
Soooooo let's start with the easy one! I got my thesis goal accomplished. While I didn't get an A, I did get a B, it was a piece that for me was really hard and changed so much since I started working on it last June.
My other two goals are a little bit more complicated. I did work on editing "The Frituals" a lot, but the more that I edited, the more I realized I needed to combine the two books into one. The plot threads made more sense woven all into one big plot versus spread out over two books. So the two have been combined, and I have begun another massive re-edit to make sure that all the plot lines match up and to tweak characters.
2018 Writing Goals
So this year, the goal to work on "The Frituals" to a publishable level has hit yet again. I ordered a printed copy to take around with me, but due to the musical, I am working I am a bit behind. Keep checking back here, I am going to be putting out a call for beta readers. My goal for this is to make it publishable and possibly begin the publishing process. It hopefully will go to a professional proof editor afterword. So if you do choose to help out, just bear with me on some of the grammar. I know some people have an issue with it. However, my mindset is that if I am going to do a structure edit and end up deleting scenes I am not going to make it exactly perfect.
Goal #2 is to outline and possibly write the first draft of my Sci-Fi project that for right now I am calling ISS. I would also like to work on restructuring a piece I wrote in high school. It was actually my first ever NaNoWriMo project.
I would love to build up my platform as The Scripturient 101 and have 700 Instagram followers, 500 youtube followers. This will help spread my words and make any plans that I have for publishing easier in the future.
I think this is all I have for you today! I miss writing on my writing. I am going to try to go back to my old habit of doing monthly writing updates so keep your eyes peeled for that post next week!
