So my friend and fellow author Mona introduced me to a new website for authors and starting Monday I’ll be taking a three day class call “How to Hook Your Reader.” I’m hoping the classes I’m interested in will help flesh out issues I’m having. Plus some just sound interesting. This month there are three classes I’m going to take. My month will be filled with classes, edits, PBD article, packing and moving. Not to mention all the appointments we have. Fun, fun, fun I can’t wait.
So I doing something a little different today. Instead of putting the poetry on the poetry page I’m putting these two front and center.
With dripping blood
Tainted water flows
Along the river of woe
On a chilled night two young lovers make camp in a clearing surrounded by woods. After lighting logs in a small teepee style structure they sit cuddled in each others arms around the warming fire. They stare up to the sky watching the twinkling stars while roasting smor’es over the orange and red flames.
The camp fire blazes in the night
As the flames burn bright
On this All Hallows Eve
Today was a busy day. I worked at my normal job, had military stuff to do so Flyboy and I can get off the rock and worked on edits.
Legacy now has two new small chapters, that I think will help readers get a better feel for the darker side of the story. I changed it up because I’m still not getting that great of reviews on WeBook and I don’t think people are getting where the story is going. Will I know their not considering they only get a paragraph and a half to start off. One of the new chapters is the first one and we start off from the bad guys perspective. I’m hoping this helps. Before we didn’t meet the bad guys until chapter five or six now their front and center and like I’d started in later chapters we see them every third or so chapter.
Besides adding two new chapters I finished tearing apart chapter 3 and have made it into two separate chapters. It had been a really long chapter. Too much was in it and the fluff got cut. I have to rework the back half of the of what was chapter 3 so it flows for chapter 5 now but I think it will make more since and I won’t be re-describing things, i.e. the house.
