I've been sort of lacking on the updating this dreamwidth with what's going on. I'm very close towards the end of the first act. The motherfucker actually grew on me (I thought it was going to be five chapters, but it turned out that it was going to six chapters. The word count is already clocking at 8773 words and I think honestly the first act is going to be 10 or 11k. There are a lot of contintuity problems, and I'm going to read it through it with the text to speech reader. I'm freaking dreading it. Although it's come loads better than that first draft. It still needs fixing before I give it to my beta. I have my usual beta, Benderfan1221, and I have a new beta who I begged for on my facebook Entangledwoods. I should be ready for publishing them by the end of the month *crosses fingers*.
Also I was trolling NaWritMo site and I found this treasure called Word Keeper Alpha
that keeps up with my daily word counts and easily show me progress graphs. This helps because I got rid of Ywriter. Mostly, because my best tool is my onenote series/story bible, focus writer, and google drive. So I can type it up on my laptop and destop and have it back up incase of a computer crash. I offically retired my old account, and deleted the orignal criss cross fics.
I'm going to have to actually delete a character, Brady, because he adds nothing to the overall plot. I'm pretty sad. I'm also going to have to give more actions and dialouge to the Hershels as well I cut out Dr. Lelsie Thompson as well. Although I might have to put her back in, and I'm going to have do more research *groans*. I also have to revise the outline, and plot out the next act as well. So I have a lot to do.
I also have a website that I'm currently working on as well. So lots to do. I also find that I can do as much character devolping as I want, but my characters actually morph and create their own personalities. It's so annnoying. It's one of the reasons why I won't be publishing the full bio until I write their background in the story. *le sigh* I'm also very nervous about making her a mary sue, and keeping her consitiant. I'm so parnoid about it.
