Working On Other Stories

Because I am typing Scarred Hearts in my laptop, I am unable to work on it with pen and paper. So, to pass the time, leading up to now, I chose to work on a story that I have not touched in six months.

My story, Strong, is about a young woman who is falsely accused and sent to a detention center, and how she must keep her eye on God. This story is not my baby-baby, but it holds a spot in my heart. Because the topic I chose to write for the plot is based on an experience a friend of mine went through. I will go into great detail about it, as it is not something I choose to talk about, but the plot is for a more mature audience. Due to the fact that I chose to mention the use of drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, and one of the characters makes brief mentions of innuendo. I do NOT write about such topics, but I felt it was necessary for this story. I still keep my distance from going to extremes with my writing, so I don't think it would really be too mature.

I made a new cover for this story, though I do not have much plan to update it during the #SYTYCW15. I want to use the majority of my time to work on Scarred Hearts to have it finished by the deadline, in September. I'm on a roll, and I can see me finishing it in time.

I got a few more books that I have to read this month, which I had requested before entering #SYTYCW15 on Wattpad. I managed to stop reading three, one of which I was reading to give feedback to the author before it gets published, and the other that is for a book tour in September. The one for the tour I put down. I will explain more in my review, so I don't give it away too early.

I may have taken on more than I can chew, but I am determined to do it all! xD Call it self-motivation to finish the massive plate of food that is set before me,though I am a lady and I tend to have some manners. (Will-I-Am would like that metaphor LOL)

Anyways, I've got some more typing to do. I am nearing 3k words for this chapter. Count your blessing people. You don't know how lucky you are until you start losing them bit by bit. God bless you. Ciao!
