My Life (in as many posts as it takes) #23

#Shelfie 

Hello everyone. Wow. I survive NaNoWriMo. And I won!!!! *Happy dance* I am so incredible happy that I did that and almost as happy that its over. I was getting a little tiard of all the time I had to spend on it by the end of the month. Now I settling in for a month of editing, lots of school in the first two weeks and many events to got to. =D 
Okay, so Katie over at A Writers Faith tagged me to do a #Shelfie in which I show off all my books for you to see. =D 
Also, I'm sorry if my posts are a little odd this month, I'm trying to get some stuff together to start off really strong in the new year. =) 

These are the two book shelfs that are exclusivly mine. The bottum ones only my Nancy Drews the top is all other books. =) 

On top there are my other mysterys, Hard boys, Donna Parker, Dana Girls and such. =) 


And a lot of others. ;D

  2. wowza. Good for you! I don't think I could keep up with it. :P I might try it next year. Or do Camp NaNo, do you do the camp? I thought it would be nice because if you don't finish in April you can take a break and finish in July. :) Wow! That's a lot of books. I get a lot from the library. :) Glad to have you back!

    2. That sounds neat! I learned that there was a YWP Nano later on in November where you could choose your own word count, but it was too late to start. :P Maybe (if) and when I do NaNo either in camp of November we could be buddies on it! How many times have you done it? :)

    3. Oh, I would love that! I was thinking of making a cabin of teen aged christian bloggers for Camp NaNo this time around. =D I've done NaNoWriMo twice and Camp NaNo once and I've won all three. =D

    4. Ooh, that sounds neat! It seems harder on the camp to find your buddies. I didn't look at it too much yet though. When do you usually start planning? Or do you not plan much and just go with it? :) WOW! That sounds hard. Do you edit your own work? Have you ever had anything published? :)

    5. Yes, it is a little harder on Camp to connect with your friends. I usually start planning a month before NaNo. So then I can gather Pintrest boards full on inspiration, get calenders in order, map out my story a little, clean my desk out and most importantly, make sure I have good snacks. ;D Its honestly not as hard as in sounds once you get into the swing of it. I always hit a little writers block around the middle of the month but I've got lots of siblings who help me come up with new ideas. =D Well, I usually go through my books and edit out the main problems and change little story things that ether didn't fit or just weren't necessary then I send it off to about ten of my friends and they do all the editing that makes the story look good, like grammer and spelling. =D No, I don't have anything published, but I'm hoping to in about a year. =)
      Thanks for you comment Sarah! =D

    6. I don't have a pinterest, but that sounds like a neat idea! :D I'm sure it helps for inspiration, a picture can tell a whole story. Haha, yeah snacks are good! That's a good idea to send it to your friends! :D I'll have to do that. Ooh, neat! Do you do actual books, or e-books? Can you make an e-book for free? I wasn't sure. :) Thanks for answering my questions, as you see I am trying to learn all I can know about it. :)

    7. I just send my friends the documents through email because it makes it a lot easier to get the edits back. =) Well, I know on amazon you can do sales with it for free but I don't think you can do it permanently. But you can post it like on your blog in a PDF file for free. That's fine! I love answering questions and I know a little bit more because my sister is an published author. =)

    8. That is neat! Hm, I'll have to look into that. :D I thought that if you posted something on blogger, then blogger owns it unless you have a license and you have to pay for that. I wasn't sure about if it was just a document.. Wow! That is so neat!! What does she write about? How is your editing going? :) My novel or novella is going great! :D

    9. If you post it on Blogger then put a notice under it that says its free to anyone then people don't have to pay. Everything else on your blog is still under a copywrite if you have a notice up. Well, Sarah writes about a lot of different things. Why don't you cheack out her blog here: http://destinyofone.blogspot.com/p/destiny-one-book-one-in-destiny-trilogy.html =D Weeeeeellll, my editings not going to well. At the moment I'm trying to re-work a whole long section of one of my books and its a long and hard process. But I'm taking my time and I'm hoping to get it done in late January. =D I'll post about it latter. =D I'm glad, its always nice when a projects going well. =D

    10. Ohh, that's neat. :D Actually, I just found her blog and followed it! I thought it looked neat. ;) Yeahhhh, editing is not fun, it can be over whelming unless it's a really short story. ;) Do you put yours in book form? I write mine on paper, then type it out. It can be hard, but I don't have time to be on the computer all day. Wow! I hope it goes well, and I can't wait to see more about it!! :D

    11. Awesome! I'm sure Sarah appreciates that. =D Yea, see for me, even a short story is really hard to edit because once I write 'The End" I just want to be done with a story. =P That's why I only do mager stuff then let my awesome editers do the rest. =D Well, I write all my books on the computer cause I'm to lazy to transfer them from paper to the computer and I try to format it in real book form but I haven't ever printed one out in a book form if thats what you mean. =/

  3. Yeah, I'm not nearly there yet! ;) Haha, sounds awesome. Hahaaa! Well, I don't have time to be on the computer all the time, so I just type it out whenever I can. It's nice, because it kinda scares me what if the computer broke?! I would lose EVERYTHING! So, I always save backups on my email, so I have more than three places that it is saved... ;) Yeah, I have been trying to make it look like more of a book and I found a really great website: http://www.advancedfictionwriting.com/blog/2010/07/16/correctly-formatting-your-novel-manuscript/
    that helps with indenting with a new chapter, it has like a checklist. It has really helped me. :)
    Merry CHRISTmas!!! :D
