Book Update

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 2, 2014, 8:19 PM
EDIT #2: My book is now fully edited and now has a prologue, 24 chapters, 258 pages with Times New Roman 12 font, and 1.5 space between lines: 106, 508 words :D Now I'm going to read it through from beginning to end, and then comes the hardest part; submit it to publishing agencies and wait...and get rejected many times ;)


=====================================

EDIT: as a side-note, editing a book is a brain-buster and so much work!!! It's harder to edit than to actual write the book! And it's just weird how things you wrote suddenly sound wrong and you end up changing almost half a chapter, or suddenly you notice something you forgot to mention, which had happened ten chapters ago or something...just so frustrating! But I suppose that's why it's important to edit!...just wish it wasn't so painful lol



=====================================


As some of you may or may not know, I've been working on a book for the last ten years. Now when I say, "working on", I use the term lightly; it's more like I was gathering ideas, creating characters, background stories, and things like that. Since last year, in February, I began actually writing the book though, not in actual order, some chapters I always had in mind were written first, until I finally put everything together and it is DONE! Once again, I use "done" lightly, I still need to revise, edit and all those fun things (feel my sarcasm here lol), but the actual story is written, for the first book anyways. It is written in Times New Roman, font 12, 1.5 space in between lines and has 23 chapters, 230 pages and 95,548 words (for now, editing and revising may reduce or increase of course). I am really happy about finally writing it though! I will be trying to publish it (I am expecting plenty of rejection letters, and I may end up being very disappointed, but I won't give up because for me, I've already achieved what I wanted; write my first book!)

Anyways, just a little update on that ;)
