Update on life and The Drip

Yesterday, I passed 15,500 words on my current work in progress: The Drip. For those of you that don’t know, I am writing a dystopian biopunk story. Check out the “Books” link at the top for my poetry collections on Wattpad and the story ideas that I have in the works. Can’t wait to share them all with the world!

I’ve started to wonder which route I should go with publishing. I want to reach as many people as possible, but making money isn’t really that much of a concern since I have a full time job. I’m thinking either self-publish or go with an indie publisher. I am going to continue trying to build a following on twitter so that maybe I will be able to reach more of an audience.

I would say that I am about 60% done with the first draft, which then I’ll edit, send to friends to read over and give feedback, and then I will probably hire a real editor. Everyday I second guess myself and wonder if this is really what I want to do, but I know it is.

Thursday, I am going home to Arkansas for Christmas. It should be nice to get away from work for a little while, but I’ll miss my cat, Lilo. I will probably do one more blog update tomorrow before I leave, and then it might be when I get back that I update again.

Anyways, to whoever is reading this, thanks! I’ll see you on the next one.
