Fiction writer.
I mostly write crime/mystery themed stories with the occasional make believe aspect. I try (and hope) to make my characters interesting but believeable.
(I also love to make book covers.)
(And I seem to use too much parenthesis.)
---
Finished Movellas include:
Claw Marks and Corridors (in it's very rough 1st draft stage)
Lie Like a Magpie (also a first draft, but minorly edited)
---
My 'to be read' pile will always be huge and my bookshelves full. I believe you can never have too many books.

I am also currently doing a degree but writing has always been one of my favourite things in the world. Since the age of about 11 I have wanted to publish a book.

My favourite books are any by Terri Terry (especially the Slated Trilogy and Mind Games) and of course Harry Potter! I may have read them over 10 times each...

I have kind of always sucked at writing bios so I hope this is satisfactory.

    So, I haven't really posted anything or been active for a while, but hello! I have news, well not exceptionally big news but news all the same.

    You may or may not (let's face it, probably not) have noticed that my two completed Movellas (Claw Marks + Corridors and Lie Like a Magpie) now have empty chapters, and are purely just covers and blurbs. And the reason for this is? I'm rewriting and editing them both (but like properly, I have a paid beta reader looking at CM+C right now and man is it scary but exciting.) The reason for this is I would really like to start to pitch to agents soon when my drafts are the best I can make them! I felt like it was time to take them down, as I know I can't have them posted up here when I'm trying to go down the publishing route.

    Anyway, thought I would post a little update. That's where I'm at, whilst drowning in my uni work! Exciting times and very stressful. Redrafting is a struggle, it really is, but it's getting me one step closer to my dream of publishing! So that's really good too. :)

    Wooo, how exciting! I love CM+C and think it really deserves to be published. I just took my books down too for the same reason- feels weird when they've been up for a while but exciting too. Good luck!!! :D

    Thanks for the 800 followers! :) Doesn't feel that long ago since I had 700. I don't even mind that much about follower counts but 800 just seems like a milestone to me.

    Unfortunately my followers box is kind of plagued with spam bot accounts still, so if you're a genuine follower and you don't think I've followed you back let me know. I'd love to follow you back, just finding it a little hard to sift through. :)

    The draft of the developer is made possible for the needs of the customers. Surely, the benefits of the <a href="britishessayhq.com/gonerdify-com-review/.. nerdify review</a> are enshrined for the persons. The description is upheld for the advantages and all positives for the concerned c customers of the new schemes for the users of the drafts.

    Tonight I completed a second draft rewrite of my book Claw Marks and Corridors. I feel sorry for everyone who read the first version because some of that was really poorly written. I hope the second draft is a lot better!

    Not yet sure whether I will upload the new copy here or not as I do intend to possibly/eventually start working on sending this to a publisher. However I would really love some possible beta readers/anyone willing to give it a read or provide some constructive criticism at some point if I was to send the draft to you. (I still need to give it another check for small things like typos and stuff.)

    Anyway, as a track of progress, I feel a mumble was necessary. The second draft is 91,313 words so slightly less than my first draft but maybe slightly still too long. Still going to work on it and keep editing till I feel like it’s perfect enough to send off. :)

    Hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoy your week!

    Congrats! I don't know how you do it since I'm trudging through mine (7,000 out of 60,000 rewritten so far). I'll be happy to provide feedback if you need it :)

    To be honest, I probably copied too much of it word for word but minorly edited sentences and stuff like that. Other sections I completely rewrote. I think it's just finding a balance that is best for your book! And of course I always still feel there is more work to be done. :)

    Feedback would be brilliant. I'm just going to give everything another read through but will get back to you with that. I would really love to read and provide feedback on one of yours in return as well. :)
