Eternal Retribution

Well, I haven’t posted in a while here, and I wish I could say that was due to some major time spent writing.  But I can’t.  At least not for most of it.  Over the last few days though, I have been pumping out quite a bit of stuff.  I’m happy to say that earlier tonight I managed to finish up part one of the book.  Well, prior to editing, of course.


Part one probably isn’t going to be quite that long when translated into the printed page sizes and all that, but hey, it’s the logical breaking point for it, so that’s where it’s going.


I’ve started part two already.  I’m finding that the hardest part of it so far it to be able to view things from a five-year-old’s perspective.  I think it’s coming along okay, but hey, we’ll see when it hits my editors.


Along those lines, since I decided to just write until I finish, and then go back and worry about the editing, I’ve found that (when I manage to actually follow through) the writing and the words seem to be flowing easier.  Probably due to the fact that I’m not worrying about changing what’s already been written, and am focusing on what still needs to be extracted from the gray matter and put on paper.  Plus, hey, that’s what editors and proofreaders are for, right?  Thanks again you guys…even those who haven’t gotten the material back to me yet.


I think I’m gonna sign off again for now.  Remain Snowman. 😉

Well, I’ve managed to get a few pages written in the last couple days, and they seem to be coming together. I’ve got a few copies roaming around out there with some people I know, looking over things for me.  Got some back, waiting on some others, though as it stands now, I’m going to glance over any edits, but basically just let them lie until I finish the book.  If I keep going back and changing things all the time, I’ll never move forward.  Thanks to those who are helping me out, also.  I appreciate your insight.


So, going between different pages on the website of the self-publishing company I’m with, I’m comparing word counts and page numbers and such, and it seems (with their formatting, and forging links between their numbers on my own) there are roughly 48 pages for every 10,000 words.  I could be wrong, but that’s just the way I’m reading their numbers. 


What does that tell me?  I need to pick up the pace…  Also, that I may need to take some time to disappear so I can get some stuff done without allowing myself the distractions (don’t worry, I’m handwriting things in a notebook, so Digsby (multiple IM client, among other things, for those of you who don’t know) won’t be an issue.


It’s going to be a bit more difficult now that I’m also house-shopping.  But hey, can’t let these things hold me up anymore.  Gotta get working on this stuff, and get it done.  Should be posting another update in a couple days or so.



Rock on, Peace out.

So, here’s the first official post on the new site.  I’ll be using this as a means to let anyone who happens to view the site know the status of the novel I’m writing, under the same name.  I’ve made some progress in the last couple days, which is a good thing.  I hoping this site will spur me into action a little bit more.  I’m set up with a self-publishing company, and need a finished product turned in by January…and I’ve already paid, so a nice kick should help me get things going. 


I have some features in mind for the future of the site also that I think you’ll enjoy.  Until the link is set up, for the time being, if you’ve got any questions, I can be reached at .  That’s all for now.
