I am on a ROLL!!!

So far, I've gotten a LOT of Outcasts done...about 4 pages. In my world, that's really a feat to do in two days, because I usually jot down a paragraph or two until I die, but lately I've been writing like no tomorrow. So ~horrah~ for the world of Outcasts which I love so very much. I'm debating though whether or not to send it to a publisher, because things don't really pick up until the second book, and the first book is really slow...

Oh, and I plan to have a forest fire in their world. Fun for them. Maybe I'll split them up....but if I add that it'll make a long book...all the better! Hopefully I can extend my record of 71 pages to at least around 130. I'd like that very much, if I could do so. At first I was putzing over Awaking because it really didn't have a whole lot to it, but now it's way more complex that I think I'll overshoot my goal! And us writers know how GREAT that is. Not book is too long.

I have this awesome picture of Kovvie that I drew WAY back, and just have never gotten to uploading it. I'll get to it sooner or later.

*hm* Lately I've been talking a lot about Outcasts, and I shall do so a bit more (sorry if I bore you). Thinking back to when I started it, the sense of the old Outcasts compared to the current is WAY different. The old was really naive and young, the world just coming alive, and now it's has depth. You begin to wonder who the last Four could be, and that right there is a major mystery. And trust me, I hope you guys won't be able to guess until the end. Go on, guess! I'm pretty sure you know her/him...maybe...

But I started Outcasts on May 23, 2009, and finished December 8 of the same year. So that was...roughly around 6-7 months. Awaking I started around...whoa, I didn't realize this, May 10 2010. Is that creepy or what? But I highly doubt I'll have this done for you guys around December...I even doubt around next May...

Hm....as of now, I don't know what else to write about. Oh! Yes I do...



Take if you totally agree. Amen!

Great job! And congrats :) I'm guessing you write on paper, but if you don't, do you know how many words total you have in one of your finished books? Have you published at all? I'm currently just over 10,600 and I only started chapter 3 XD my book is going to be a wee bit...big. lol, but I'm counting on the fact that there are about 300 words per page; that gives me around 35 pages of material.

Squeaks: I write them out first, then type it out. In Outcasts there are 37,132 words, 72 pages, and about 7 chapters. It's a bit short...and what is wrong with big might I ask? :D

Eagle: Why thank you!
