In my story I am using a combination of modern and antiquated words that do not appear in the dictionary pre-installed Apple OSX10.9. I am finding more and more that these words do exist in paper copies of dictionary’s meaning that I have to spent time away from reading and editing to go and check the existence of these words.
Come on Apple get your finger out and fix the PROPER BRITISH ENGLISH dictionary and not the out of date American crap that seams to be installed!
I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith, faith, faith.
Yes I have the George Micheal song stuck in my head. Why do you ask?
Because I have lost faith in both my books and the whole series!
At the moment I just feel that the whole thing is a screw up and just shouldn’t be allowed out in public. I have yet to edit the first book or take it from 50K to 60K but I just feel put off by the whole thing. So far, Since I printed it out, I have not even looked at it. Part of that was the decision to put it on the back burner and take a rest but with it sat there at the back of my mind, the more I research publishing, the more I think that I will never make it.
I think that most of it is down to the fact that even though I have taken 25 days of holiday leave from work, I have yet to have a proper holiday. Well the new year is approaching fast so time to change my ways.
See you in port soon airships captains and fellow scribes.
One of the things that a lot of people struggle with and something I have been struggling with since I started NaNoWriMo 2013 was thinking up a title. I used the name Mythobiology because it was supposed to be heavy with mythical animals. However, as it is part of a Steampunk series and most of the book is about his life up to becoming the captain of an airship.
I feel that my book has now lost it’s identity and the title now no longer fits. I have been stewing over this for a few days now but until I start the editing and rewriting work then it’s not going to change.
On a side note, I have started to work on my Fantasy series, Return of the dragons.
The series follows each individual member of a group of hero’s without crossing the same grounds. After a civil war that nearly wiped out the dragons, the survivors went into hiding and man kind has spread across the land. The instigators of this civil war, the black dragons have started to stir and are intent on bringing all the species into this new war. How will each member deal with there pasts in order to come together and save the future.
