Nightmares and Red Palms

Hey everyone! I have a new story up on my Wattpad.  It’s called Nightmares and Red Palms. I’m considering publishing it just so some of you all can get physical copies of it, but it is possible that I may just add it as a bonus in the back of my next publication. Who knows. Nightmares and Red Palms is a historical…

I’M BACK:)

Hey Reader, I’ve been gone for like… a month? Dear lord. Just writing a blog post right now feels weird. I do have a good excuse. You know, end of the school year and exams and that crazy beta reading… but you all deserve more than excuses. (I think I heard someone say once that excuses are like butt holes–…

Almost There…

Hey everyone! Just so you know: There are five days left on the Beta Reading. This means that next week, I’ll be going back to the regular weekday posting of chapters. Everything is going to go back to usual. Thank you so much for being patient with me over the last month or so. You all are great! Again, it…

My Editing Process

Hey Reader, So my copy came early! If you haven’t been following this blog this whole time, I’ll explain. After NaNoWriMo, I ordered a print copy book so that I can edit it on something other than the computer and work on the cover and all that. It was supposed to come Wednesday, which would be a full week of…

Part 16: Falling Actions

Dear Reader, How’s your summer going? Mine is great so far and I’ve had a lot of time to write, which is great for both of us. I’m sorry about posting this late, but I was in a car for what seems like half of time itself without wifi. In this chapter, I’m going to go through what falling actions…

Part 15: Climax

Dear Reader, Sorry I’m publishing this so late, but I’ve been querying agents all day for my book, Deception. So in this chapter, I’m going to talk about Climaxes. If you look at the plot diagram below, you will see the box in the middle of the top, labelled “Climax”. *

Part 14: Rising Actions

Dear Reader, In this chapter, I’m going to talk about the plot diagram again. So far, we’ve covered the exposition box and the conflict box, but now it’s time to move into the rising actions and the climax.* Let’s start with rising actions. Rising actions are the meat and potatoes of the story, so to speak. This is all of…

Part 13: Conflicts

Dear Reader, This Saturday I think we should go a little further on that plot diagram, don’t you think? Well, after the exposition would come the conflict. If you look at the plot diagram below, you will see a circle with the word “Conflict” Next to it is an arrow linking the conflict to the words, “Protagonist vs. Antagonist”. Underneath…

Part 12: Exposition

Dear Reader, So, this chapter may be long, but it’s important. Having a good weekend so far? Well it’s about to get even better because we are going to talk about your exposition. This is the first box on the picture attached, and is the beginning to any plot diagram.* The exposition is Where you introduce the story. You give…
