Post Break (November 28 - December 19)


Post Highlights:

  • No new posts until December 19
  • Future chapters of Renegade will not be published until the book is complete
  • When complete, current chapters already published (1-5) will be overhauled
  • Upcoming posts include two tags and the 4th section in my Tips From a Newbie blogging tips series

Hey there! It's that time again - time for another little break from posting. From today, the 28th of November, and until around December 19th or so, no new content will be posted.

However, I also have a couple of updates for you - mostly concerning my book-in-progress Renegade (that's right, I actually am still working on it despite not publishing anything in a lonnng time!), and also some of what to expect postwise after I return from break.

You can simply read the post highlights above, or read on for a little more detail on each of the listed points!


Renegade Updates


I apologize for the endless waiting.. I do. I've had chapters 1-5 out for months now, and I haven't even finished fixing the formatting on the last two.

I started writing this story with the intention of publishing each chapter as I wrote it and, at first, that worked out great. But I just don't think that's the right way to go about it now. The chapters so far have turned out very "first drafty." Crap writing, basic and hurried plot points, and there are many, many things that I now feel need to be changed.

I'm a pantser - someone who doesn't plan in advance, or plans very little, and just goes with it. That means that there are going to be a lot of revisions before I'm done with it. With that in mind, I've decided to cease publishing new chapters of Renegade until the entire book is finished.

Unfortunately, this means it'll be a while until you see any more of it - but it will prevent you from having to frequently reread the previous chapters whenever I change things. And besides, then you'll have it all on a timely schedule - no more waiting 6 months per chapter!

As for the chapters already published, they will be be receiving massive overhauls (likely when I'm nearing the end of the book). It's too early to say just how different they'll be, but they will be changed appropriately to match the rest of the story. And, hopefully, be improved in terms of writing. Whether you're new to Renegade or not, you'll definitely want to start fresh when everything is ready!


Upcoming Posts


I have a few posts planned already for when I return from break. These include the Sweater Weather tag, the Blogger Buddies tag, and the fourth part to my Tips From a Newbie series, as well as anything else that manages to squeeze in during that time..

Obviously, these will not all be published right after my break ends! But I hope to have one of the above ready by the 19th, and the others will follow soon after.

I would also like to redo my About page, but, ah, we'll see if that happens or not.
                                                     

That's all I have for you, I believe. You can also explore around here while I'm gone - there's plenty of things for you to check out!

- Misc posts (includes Poetic Pictures, Midget Monday, Tips From a Newbie, and others)
- News/Updates (includes tag posts, one year anniversary post, and other updates)

    1. Thanks so much, Hannah. I look forward to being back! Hopefully with a ton of new ideas ready to go (ah, but I know it won't work out that way.. lol). It's good to take a break once in a while - keeps everything from becoming tedious and difficult to keep up with.
