Progress

Finally started to attempt to edit Claw Marks and Corridors. It's just been sitting there for a while but today I have made some good progress and moved on to draft 2. :) I'm not sure if I will be uploading all the edited chapters or not, but for the time being it will stay as it is now on the site.

I'd just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has read, commented or liked/favourited! It means a lot to me. :) It's reached 2443 views so far which might not seem a lot to some but I am proud of it. It's now my most read (and first completed story) besides an really old Movella (1) I never finished. So yeah, I just wanted to say how grateful I am for all of the support. :)

Also I've updated Lie Like a Magpie again. Another four chapters! :) Hope you enjoy.

Despite being only the second first draft of a book I ever finished, I still think this one is a lot better, or I prefer it somehow. xD But I'm hoping to get them both to a perfect standard so I can maybe think about publishing at least one of them...

As you can probably guess from the title, I’m pretty excited about having finally edited 25 chapters of Our Dark Lies. This means I only have four chapters left to edit, which means it won’t be long before I can send it along to the publishers that require a complete manuscript rather than the first few chapters.

Thanks so much to everyone who’s given me feedback, I’ve taken it to heart and used it to make this novel the best I can possibly write.

Midnight_Souls
Midnight_SoulsWriting can be a good way to deal with stuff going on in your life. Some of the things I like to do when I don’t feel like writing a story are simply writing a big, long paragraph on how I feel and all that or doing writing exercises such as writing down a bunch of synonyms/antonyms for a certain word...
Lily Anna
Lily AnnaI know it can be hard when things aren't too good but that doesn't mean you have to give up writing for ever. I've gone months without writing anything more than a few words before, I call it a creative lull. Sometimes things in life can get in the way but that doesn't mean it will be like that forever....

Self-publishing questions

I posted about this yesterday, but I'm going to check up daily until Monday in case anyone else has more questions about self-publishing. Ask literally anything you want, nothing will be too personal or invasive, even if you want to ask about money I've spent or earned.

Here's what has been asked so far:
-benefits and negatives of self-publishing
-benefits and negatives of traditional publishing
-how editing works
-how to sort out the covers

Original post: movellas.com/people/post/201808171743551..
The Intelligence Division
The Intelligence DivisionI'd be intrigued to know about the marketing process, for example what the publishing system you followed did to market, publicise or otherwise broadcast your work, how this compares with other options (but not traditional publishing - that could take years to cover), but also the marketing you've done...
Midnight_Souls
Midnight_SoulsOne thing I’d like to know about is how to tell a scam publisher from a legitimate one. A friend of mine got scammed trying to self-publish and since then has given up on writing almost altogether. So, how would you tell if a publishing company is a scam or not?
Squonk of the Nightshade
Squonk of the NightshadeMaybe something on the cost of self financing a book to the market place.
I must be in the writing mood this year! After completing Rest Easy, I haven't even given myself a month's breather before working on my next project. I must say however, that this novel feels almost like a necessity - it is going to be a semi-autobiographical chronicling of my year abroad, with a rich mixture of very true events that happened, real people i met, and of course, artistic creative license to create a story with an arc. One of my biggest regrets was never writing a diary during my time there, so i feel like i owe i to hong kong to pay homage to my time there in one way or another. So here goes - A Part of Us will be my current project!

Midnight_SoulsSounds interesting, I’ll have to check it out!

Chapter Changes!

Hey there movellians :) All seven chapters of 'Only Half Monster' have been edited, some are slight improvements of grammar and wordings, and other changes are slight but major plot changes.

One main change is the name for one of my main characters 'old man', 'Mr' or 'Calridge' has been changed to 'Alistair Seymour' and this change is most likely permanent.

Regardless of the changes, the chapters are all still in draft phase and will be until the story is complete.

Please take a look and leave a like if you enjoy the story so far! Feedback is always appreciated! :)

Had a good editing day today and managed to get through the whole draft (only minor edits though, not a complete perfect draft yet).

Chapters 7, 8, 9 and 10 are uploaded. Will try to keep a pattern of uploading four at a time now. :)

Self-publishing questions??

I'm thinking about making a video/blog about self-publishing and how 'Beauty in the Breakdown' came into existence. It'll be a little background about different self-publishing options, how I chose one, and a bit about the actual process of getting the book from Word document to Amazon page.

Anyone interested in this? More importantly, does anyone have a specific question about self-publishing or wants to know anything about my experience?
Lily Anna
Lily AnnaThat would be really interesting and helpful I think. :) I'm thinking of trying to publish one of my books too (one day in the future), I'd always thought of going to publishers and doing it that way though. So it might be cool to know your thoughts about the advantages of self-publishing instead, why...
Katie Pharoah
Katie PharoahI would love a video on this. Publishing is like a dream so of course if the gap could be bridged across a bit with some advice that would be great. I want to ask how you sort out your covers when you self-publish??

I missed the three year anniversary of this account xD I set a countdown and everything but still forgot.

So, on August 9th 2015, a fourteen-year-old version of myself made this account as a 'fresh start' from my old one. Since then, we've got 180 followers, a few awards, and 29,000 story views, which is incredible.

'Heart' is still my most popular story in terms of likes and views and, one day, I will actually finish writing it. 'Beauty in the Breakdown' is now out in the world for you to read, and 'Paper Forests' will hopefully be joining it sometime this year.

Life's good.

I can still tell there are going to be areas of improvement throughout this draft and I will be rewriting some of the chapters, but for now the editing is basically just correcting typos or weird sounding sentences.
Even so I hope if anyone is reading that they enjoy so far. :) I'd be up for a read for a read if anyone wants as well.
