I’ve made quite a few changes throughout the manuscript in the last week or so. I’ll update all of the chapters as soon as I get some more free time. Summer classes are over, so I should have a little more time to write now. I’ve changed a lot within the first three chapters and have changed a few names throughout.

As far as new work goes, I’ve finished chapter fourteen and you can read it here.

New Work: “The Consequence of Liking Girls” Chapters 9 and 10

It’s taken me forever to get back to the point where I could work effectively on either one of my novels. I’ve started rewriting my NaNWriMo novel from last fall, as my computer magically lost the file. Thank God for the paper copy I had!

I’ve also made the decision to use this novel as my Master’s thesis, so there will be a lot more work going into this novel and as a result of that, a lot more posts about new chapters..

I have two new chapters for you. You can read chapter nine of “The Consequence of Liking Girls” here and chapter ten here.
As always, any feedback is appreciated. With any luck at all, I’ll have some more for you to read very soon.

Another Change

 Over the past month or so, I’ve been trying to decide which of my novels I want to use for my Master’s thesis in the fall. I love them both equally and have put hours of hard work into each, even though neither are finished yet. Yesterday, I finally came to my decision, with the help of my thesis advisor.

I’m going to use “The Consequence of Liking Girls” (referred to on this blog as TCoLG). This was originally started last November for NaNoWriMo (my first), and in twenty days, I had written 50,611 words. At the end of of November, I was a little more than half way finished with the novel–the farthest I’ve gotten on either of the novels I have going right now.

While I absolutely love “The Harshness of Reality” (referred to on this blog as THoR), I don’t believe it can be finished in time for my defense in the fall. Strike that. It can’t be finished properly. The second half of the story and the ending would be rushed–something I do’t want, since I have a clear path that I want to follow for the story. There’s much more research that needs to be done, and I think I need to flesh out a character or two a bit more. THoR has taken a lot of work, and while I’m happy with where it’s currently sitting, it still needs a lot more work and I refuse to rush it through the necessary processes just so I can have it finished in time to defend it in December. I’m not walking away from the story. I’m simply setting it aside for now. I’ll work on it when I want to and when the muse hits, but for now. I need to focus on my thesis.

TCoLG was very rough after NaNoWriMo. I edited those pages once through and am now re-typing the entire story since the file somehow disappeared from my computer. I am nearly finished with that re-typing and can then move forward in the story. When discussing the matter briefly with my advisor, she mentioned that she really likes the idea of finishing a novel, and I believe I can achieve that with TCoLG.

Transitioning from one to the other has taken a little work, but I’m there now. I plan to begin outlining soon. Another new(ish) adventure awaits.

Happy Writing,
