Character sheets!

By | 2018-05-22T20:16:47+00:00 October 14th, 2017|Journal|0 Comments

So last time, I told you that my next step in revisions would be to restructure the novel using index cards. Turns out I needed an extra step before I could do that: modify/redo my characters sheets. What is a character sheet? It depends greatly on what you write, what type of writer you are [...]

At the beginning of this month, I explained how I was planning my first round of revisions that is going to lead to the second draft of my novel. The first step was to print the first draft, read it and make a lot of notes. I'm almost done with this step (4 chapters left [...]

I haven't posted on this blog for a little while, but I have a good excuse: I was working hard on my novel! Thanks to the July Camp NaNoWriMo, I finally finished the first draft on July 30th:   It felt SO good to finally put an end to that book, even if just the [...]

Hi everyone, It's been a few weeks since I last posted here. I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy a well deserved holiday, with a total break from writing. Now, it's already the end of June, which means that my short story "Behavioural Surgery" will be available soon on the website of Flash [...]

Hi everyone, CampNaNoWriMo is now well into its second week and I've reached 8545 words written so far in April. Yesterday, I checked my full novel word count and I saw that I had reached 70K words in total. Not bad, right? I'm still in the chapters pre-THEBIGBATTLETM which makes me believe that [...]

It's the sixth day of Camp NaNoWriMo and I'm on target so far! I've chosen to do less words than in November because I knew I had busy weeks coming at work, and also I knew that I would struggle down the line with the end of the novel. I'm currently writing the "quiet before [...]

Camp NaNoWriMo is almost here! I am not ready, but I'm still impatient to get back into writing Healers. I am currently reading what I have written during NaNoWriMo 2016 and I'm surprised that it is not as bad as I remembered it. Of course, it is only a first draft, with lots of typos [...]
