Woe is me....

I have had to resort back to the barbaric form of actually writing!
I have had a bad week, firstly I awoke one day and turned on my laptop only to find out it was broken! then I turned on my ps3 and boom thats dead too... not that it has an effect on this blog as the laptop does but at the time it felt worse... lol.

So until I have a replacement I will be writing my book in the form of actually writing, not that it bothers me too much but it is still a bit of an annoyance.

Well back to the quill and ink!

Ok so as promised I have taken Chapter one down and Gave it a bit of a revamp. its a bit long now, might spread it out into chapter two. the chapter has all the same major plot lines with the exception of the addition of the source of spells which I have added to explain the difference between Mages and sorcerers, I didnt want to go down the blood magic route... I think its been done to death. Well I am going to redo chapter two as well with the hope they will match up witht he later chapters.

Writing Development

I have looked through my writing before and after I started this blog and I really see the difference the feedback has had on my writing, my description ability has seriously improved, in my humble opinion lol.

However seeing this makes me aware of the massive difference in the writing in my early chapters as they were written before I started the blog and therefore the writing isn't as good as my later chapters. so I have decided to go back and re-edit chapters one to four. hopefully this will improve the readers experience, there is no point the later chapters being great if the early ones aren't some people wouldn't even get to the later chapters. So I am going to finish chapter ten and then go back and begin my chapter one to four overhaul.

Also I have to accept the feedback, my Grammar is not really been up to par and I do accept that. I write for the thrill of telling the story and the grammar hasn't been a massive issue for me, there fore I have enlisted the help of two Proof readers who will be reading through my work and correcting any grammar issues they find and then getting back to me with the corrections.

And in other personal news I have been asked to be part of a compilation book of short stories to be published next year at some point. which I am very excited about

Chapter 9 is complete :D

Its the first of my large chapters. Since my characters are no longer together there is more parts of the story to follow so my chapters are getting longer to compensate. 
The problem with this is Chapter names now become difficult as there is so much in each chapter... 
I might have to scrap them and go with numbered although i love some of my chapter names like Tavern crawls and Barromm brawls

Back To It.

Well I'm back at it. Writing chapter nine at the moment, I hope I will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing the last two chapters.

Well that's it for this post, I just thought I would let any one still reading this that I will be back uploading.

Poor Colin

I'm having fun writing chapter 8 so far. had a little difficulty with the big fight scene. I was holding up the action with too much description so I resolved this by giving the description before the fight begins. this way the fight is fast paced with short sentences that are straight to the point of what is happening in the fight.

Also I'm not going to over describe things in the fight... the readers as a whole aren't stupid, you all know what a punch is like.

I got to feel sorry for Colin. :(

He got created for a novel and he is being mistreated in life... he is going to pop up more through the book and it isn't going to get better for him.

Drunk characters and bad bars...

Hi there folks.

Really happy with the story so far. (Except chapter five! that needs an over haul) Six and Seven I'm happy with and kinda glad the power went out that night and kicked my writing back into gear.

I have also made a pdf version of my book thus far and have sent it to some people who have trouble getting onto their computers to read the blog. I have been assured they will either send me their comments or come on to comment after they have read it.

So chapter 8 is a bit of fun mixed with a bit of dark. which so far is really fun to write as its set in a tavern full of drunk people. I hope to have it finished for edit by Friday. So should be ready for upload by Monday.

Come on people more comments please!



I have also uploaded my chapters on Deviant art and it can be viewed and commented on there.
