A Quick Works-in-Progress Update
Today I’m going to update you on my current projects as briefly as I can, just to give you an idea what I’m working on now. Seriously, guys, I promise to be brief. Like, super brief. Like, I’m probably spending more time explaining it than I will on the actual post.
Before we go on to that, I want your opinions on that graphic up there (^). It’s pretty awful, isn’t it? I literally just stuck some text on a pinkish background and added the little notebook thing. *scowls at own lameness*
Also, I want to tell you that I’m planning a cover reveal this May. I haven’t worked out the details yet, but I’m really excited for it. Willowy Whisper just finished up the cover for Ivy Introspective, and it is gorgeous!
Now, what I was actually supposed to be posting about …
The Dressmaker’s Secret
I’ve made a list of the things I want to change, and I’ve made a few of those changes. Mostly, I’m just making little tweaks here and there – sentence structure and such. However, I am planning on making some big revisions from Chapter 26 on, rewriting large sections and even playing with the storyline a bit.
I’ve got in printed out (again), and I’m editing it like crazy! After I’m finished (which shouldn’t be too long; I’d say I’m about 70% done), I’m going to put the changes on my Google Docs file (hopefully before next Saturday when I’ll be flying to California) and start reading through it again.
Flowers is becoming a rebellious teenager. Once again, Adele is giving me trouble, that little sinker. I don’t want this to be cheesy or preachy … but I also want to show some important growth in my characters! How can this be done? I have no idea. However, I’m almost done. I just have a couple pages to write before it’s completed.
And … I think that’s all! I know this was a fairly short post, but the shorter the post, the better chance I have of retaining your attention, right? I mean, not that I think you have ADHD or anything.
Okay, I just thought about that, and … what if you do have ADHD, and I offended you? Sorry. Not trying to, um, stereotype or … any of … that stuff ….
That just reminded me of this funny conversation I had with my friends today. One of my friends was talking about Trump, and I was like, “Yeah, he’s my role model. I always strive to be super offensive (this was a joke; I don’t actually find him offensive). It’s so much fun!” (I’m paraphrasing, Claire, in case you read this.) And my other friend said, “You try hard, but you’re not there yet …”
I may never get there … *sad sigh*
~Kellyn Roth, who will never be Donald Trump. Or Jane Austen, for that matter, which is perhaps a bit worse …
You’re flying to CA?? *gets jealous* My cousins live there, and they are visiting us right now. It’s kind of funny that you are going there. 😛
I actually really don’t want to go (I’m a homebody and an introvert and I see no reason for going, especially as we just saw the relatives we’re visiting what? Three months ago? And they’re going to make me go see missions and boring stuff like that …), so maybe we can switch places … 😉
Really!?! I love traveling (although it’s always nice to come home), except when I get travel sickness. 🙂
Nah, I’m not much of a traveler … I like my home and my comforts and having everything I could possibly need right next to me.
Oh, and all of those updates sound great! (sorry, sometimes I get sidetracked :P)
(Nah, sidetracked is always good! It provides more interesting conversational material.)
Great post, Kellyn! I always love update posts, and I hope you’re able to achieve all that you need! Also, haha, poor Kellyn. You won’t ever be able to offend someone, won’t you? 😛
Also, I just wanted to let you know that I tagged you for the Sims Book Tag. You can check it out here: https://foreverandeverly.wordpress.com/2017/02/10/gratitude-tag-sims-book-tag/ Hope you’re able to do it! 😀
I try so hard! But it just ain’t happening … except on NaNo, sometimes. I tend to get, um, passionate about things I care about … XD
Ooh, thanks! I saw that post but haven’t read it yet! *hops over there to read it*
Yeah, on NaNo I’m always very passionate about stuff. 😛
I think there’s a safety in knowing none of the people there can actually hit you … 😉
Don’t worry; someday people will be saying, “Who cloned the 45th president?”
Yay!!!!!!! Only I think I’ll, you know, have better hair and probably, you know, be a girl … but otherwise, yep. 😉
I hope you’ll have better hair, Kell! But you’d be an interesting president… XD
I have ADHD, I wasn’t offended at all. The shorter the post, the better I will pay attention, yep!
Whew! I’m glad you weren’t offended! I rarely think before I speak, so … it can get messy! But I try my best. 🙂
I NEVER think before I speak! Ever! So you’re doing a reallllyy good job, then.
I’m glad you think so! I can say some pretty insensitive or just not-well-thought-out things if I don’t think, so I try very hard. 🙂
;P Trying hard can be… well… hard.
