UPDATE!!! JULY 9TH, 2021!
I should probably put the updates at the top, huh? I’m doing a 4th draft of Abandonment Party 2, updating the writing to match the level of skill I’ve reached thanks to Kim’s constant critiques. Kim, the editor supreme, has not read it yet.
ORIGINAL POST from, oh, I don’t know, 2012: Hi, I’m Brad, and I have a series of books that I want to write. So far, I’ve finished one novel. Yay. As I write the rest, I want to log my process on this site. Show people the methods I use. Why? Because I enjoy learning about writing fiction, and I wish every author was open with their processes. Sure, they can tell me that first drafts are supposed to be terrible–but who actually puts them up for people to study? Nobody, that’s who! When I go to authors’ sites all I see are completed works! And pictures of rats! It’s tough learning how to create something when I only have the finished product to observe.
UPDATE!!! JULY THIRD! 2014!
The second draft of Abandonment Party 2 has been completed! My current plan is to go through the first draft of book three before revising the second book any more. Why? Because everything is just so thrilling I have to write it down! YEAAAAH LITERATURE!
UPDATE!!! JULY 31st! 2017!
Oh whoops–I forgot to update this. But now I’m done with the first draft of Abandonment Party 3! The third draft of book two is also complete!
UPDATE!!! JULY 29th! 2020!
The seriously final draft of Abandonment Party is almost done! And the cover IS done! Kim, supreme editor and test-reader just needs to go through it once more! I’m sure it will get her seal of approval THIS time. -_-
UPDATE!!! JUNE 14th! 2021!
Abandonment Party is done! It goes on Amazon/Kindle soon! As a special surprise I also set every post that discusses books two and three to private so no one will be spoiled! But don’t worry! When THOSE books come out in the future I’ll reveal the posts again!
