Starting The Next Series

I got bored a few weeks back and decided to start the next series, Exxodus. That’s still the working title of the series, but the novel will be entitled World Above The Shadows. The story is about a boy named Sol who believes that he is a real mage. He does indeed have a history with magic, but his memory is somewhat faulty because of experimental drugs that he’s been taking. Eventually, he discovers his original home on a floating country known as Motherland. When he discovers that the world…

First Draft of Editing Complete

I finally finished the first draft of editing in Barcode: Eyes That Kill. It was a challenge. I began with 105,000 words (about 210 MS Word pages). That’s a pretty hefty book. Currently, only Cavern of Youth is comparable in length. However, after editing, I added 20,000 words (50 pages). This is the longest novel yet. The editing was rough! Just being honest. Every time I write, I always try to improve. I consider previous criticisms and try to make adjustments. Not to mention, I do my best to enhance…

Writing From Experience

Too many writers use the experience of characters from other novels and films to develop their characters. That’s why imagination is relatively low nowadays. Characters are often one dimensional because the writer doesn’t know how to convey something they’ve never experienced. With that being said, I find it very difficult to write fantasy novels. I love writing from experience,which is why most of my novels have romance in them. It’s also why I use harems and love triangles *wink*. However, I struggle relaying the true challenges of a superhuman and/or…

How To Get People To Your Website

Damn you. You know who I’m talking about. You leave stupid posts on Facebook and Twitter that attempt to deceive me. They may look like this: You won’t believe what I have here: [link] Click this [link] to find out more about feeding your mind This is the best thing since sliced bread: [link] I came – [link] This [link] is sexy You know where those links lead me? Copies of someone’s novel.* Son of a &^%^&! Why? Why are your underhanded methods even used? Haven’t you taken any BASIC…

Finding Your Skill(s)

It’s easy to say, “I have no skills.” I almost think it’s natural. If you’re a humble human being, you may not look at yourself as the best or brightest, but you have to know your strengths and abilities. Finding or recognizing those strengths can be a journey in itself. When I was a kid, I thought of stories all day long. Once Mighty Morphin Power Rangers went off, I would mentally clothe myself in the Black Ranger’s uniform. Then, I’d throw my best attempt at a round house kick….

Selling Books Isn’t Easy

When I worked at a real estate office as an administrative assistant (a suicide worthy job) I knew a guy that did his best to deliver daily quotes that would linger in your mind. He was the type of person that intentionally said something witty to impress you. For example: “Morning, Dave!” “Morning, Kash.” “How’s it going?” “You know! I can’t complain and it probably wouldn’t do any good if I did.” I can honestly tell he lived by his philosophies. He wasn’t the type to complain without looking for…

One Up Barcode: Eyes That Kill

I just finished Barcode: Eyes That Kill for the second time. I actually participated in NaNoWriMo last year and wrote ETK in two or three weeks. Once I was done, I finished editing Barcode: New War Order. Though I loved the story in ETK, I knew I could write something better. When I learned character design, my instructor taught me the concept of “One Up.” It’s just what it sounds like. You take your original work and make it better. With the One Up concept in mind, I wrote a…

Frequency Flow Writing 

The Flow of Writing

Writing is about flow. Everything in life has a frequency and writing is no different. Have you ever driven behind someone on the freeway and noticed their speed increase and decrease? Have you payed attention to the way cars drift left to right ever so slightly? What about the way your emotions are stable one day but the weight of the world gets you the next? That’s life. A frequency of ups and downs. I’ve discovered my writing flow. Knowing my ups and downs allows me to maximize my potential…

Where You Spend Time

Many people have often made the comment, “It must be nice being a full time writer.” My response, “Meh.” I love being at home, but I hate writing full time. I love having hours to write, but I hate being at home all the time. This is human nature. At least it’s my nature. Naturally, it’s very confusing. Am I a full time writer? Presently, yes. I recently quit my job to study for an exam. (Don’t ask how that exam went. It’s over. That’s all I know.) Because I…

Writing Novels From Scratch

If you’re considering beginning your first novel or writing another, you may know that beginning is an obstacle in itself. NaNoWriMo motivates many people to write their novels within a month. If you’re beginning the journey of writing a novel in a month or taking your time, here’s some writing advice to begin your manuscript: Outline Your Story One great way to outline is to look at stories that were successful and mimicking their process. For example, take the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight begins with the Joker and his crew…
