    It's exciting, you are getting close!

    Updated my website with a martial art story. Worked on the blurb/product description and got it to point where it’s not completely awful. Then finally, took a nap - the first editing pass starts tomorrow.

    I started out my "late night session" with the idea I'd kick off Chapter 20 just to get it in motion, since I'd taken a break over the weekend after polishing off Chapter 19. I scratched out 500 words, then got on a roll. Before I finished I had almost 1800 words and finished the scene. With what has happened in the story there, I "might" finish it off in this chapter and a bit more. With the trick the MC is going to use to conquer the climax, that doesn't have to be a lengthy passage.

    I spent the weekend researching the book.
    It was very productive.


    I've completed the main character sheets.
    My dream? Being able to enter people's hearts with words: giving emotions and dreams.

    Thank you all for the help you give me to improve my English.

    I am attempting radical surgery with a butter knife in a desperate race against time, bathed in the shimmering heat of the funeral pyre of my first attempt.

    All normal here with the writing life.

    Better a butter knife than a machete... or a table saw... or dynamite.

    Keep plugging away, you'll get it.

    I came back to Writing Forums after a long hiatus. Time to get back into the writing world.

    You were right! I was able to move from butter knife to power sander and now I've just got to tighten the nuts a little more so that the pitch of the screaming reaches high C. Once that's done I can polish it and apply boot to push it out of the helicopter.

    Thanks for the encouragement, I really wasn't sure this thing was going to make it!

    I knew you could do it! Sounds awesome.

    Reached the halfway mark of the first edit of my next novel.
    A couple plot holes fixed, but nothing too drastic.
    It's written somewhat lean, but I've still managed to pull 800 words out of it so far.
