Apparently I’ve been updating Twitter madly, which is new for me. I’m usually a bit too long winded for 140 characters. I’m trying my best to keep it brief, though. So far it’s working.
As far as NaNoWriMo goes, I’m about 5000 words behind where I need to be for the day. I’m going to try to marathon today and see if I can’t get caught back up. There is the big family thing next Thursday through Saturday, so I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to do massive amounts of writing then. I’ll just have to do my best until I leave Wednesday.
And to keep myself honest, I’m posting my word count widget through the NaNoWriMo site here.
This post is mostly for one thing and one thing alone: a teaser image. I’ve finished the cover for Endless Loop 1: Color of Life. The editing on the book is still ongoing, but the cover itself is done.
I’m at work on Endless Loop 2: Blood and Sacrifice for NaNoWriMo this year. As of right now, I’m over 9,000 (!!!) words in, and I think it’s going quite nicely. The live-in pre-reader, Kari Bishop, enjoyed the first chapter; I haven’t gotten her to look at Chapter Two yet. (Though maybe I should be making her read Color of Life in an editing capacity before I give her too much of Blood and Sacrifice, huh?)
So, yeah, this is what happens when I have access to free stock images, Photoshop, and pretty fonts. I make covers. They’re not as good as professional covers by any means, but I’m not a professional cover artist.
And now… back to Blood and Sacrifice. Wish me luck.
I’ve made some more updates to the site. So far, it’s just been changing the layout (I think it’s pretty much obvious that I prefer the darker layouts) and I’ve add an RSS feed and an email icon. Both of these are located on the sidebar.
The first book in Endless Loop, entitled Color of Life, is almost done with writing. I’m still going through the first Tales of the Supers book in editing, because all the changes I made were somehow lost. I did get that book back from the second editor, and she was as brutal as I had asked for. There are a lot of changes to be made. I had made many of them, but again, the changes were somehow lost. Don’t ask me how.
I am finished moving, but I am in no way finished unpacking. I moved in at the beginning of August, but I don’t think a box has been opened since the middle of September.
NaNoWriMo will be beginning in a few weeks, and I’m hoping to have Color of Life completed, so that I can work on the second book in Endless Loop for this November’s book of the month. It will be entitled Blood and Sacrifice. Here’s hoping that I’m able to do this.
