Quick Break

After finishing Chapter 5 of The Way Home Remastered, I was burnt out on writing. I decided to take a week long break before coming back and writing Chapter 6.

That week is finally over, and now I’ve gotten back to writing again! Expect more updates in the near future.

Death

Not a single story of mine has gone without a single casualty. From my first story all the way to Nothing But Garble, plenty of people have been killed in various and often creative ways.

Of course, the trend continues in The Way Home Remastered. I have recently written the first death in the entire story, and I’ve got to say, it’s probably the best death scene I have ever written.

In previous stories, a character might be torn apart or shot, but in stories such as Second Voyage and The Way Home, there would be a paragraph or two explaining the death, one person shouting “No!” and a brief mention at the end of the chapter. It was pretty lame back then.

I couldn’t necessarily improve it with Nothing But Garble, since most of the characters died in between stories. The few that died during the story, however, still had somewhat lame death scenes, despite them being improved. I actually ended up finding the stories with deaths to be the weakest of the bunch, excluding the final story.

Now, however, is my chance to fix this reoccurring trend. The characters in The Way Home Remastered have been friends their entire lives. It makes little sense for them to shout “Nooo!” and then never mention them again. For the character I did kill off, I made sure that the death itself was descriptive enough that you could picture yourself in the scene. I also made every character who witnessed the death react, and they all would have a glum look on their face for the next few days. They have trouble getting over the loss of one of their closest friends, and have trouble breaking the news to those who had not seen their friend die. It makes the reader actually care about who lives, rather than being like, “Thank God! Damon finally died!” or something like that.

Anyways, you can expect The Way Home Remastered to be out sometime this year if I keep working this hard. That’s a big if. I’ve been trying my hardest to make every scene great, and I think that if I keep doing this well, The Way Home Remastered could become the greatest book I’ve ever written.

Chapter 3 Completed! (The Way Home Remastered)

Chapter 1 Word Count: 1817
Chapter 2 Word Count: 1839
Chapter 3 Word Count: 2062

Progress with this book has been somewhat slow, but I’m pleased to announce that my third chapter is completed! I don’t see myself getting much work done for the next two or three days, so I’ll probably have it done in about a week, maybe less if I work a few extra hours on it.

With Nothing But Garble, I spent hours on making my book as good as possible, and I intend to do the same with The Way Home Remastered. However, I don’t see this book being done before November unless I work on it a lot.

Peace out, homies.

Chapter 1 Completed! (The Way Home Remastered)

Chapter 1 Word Count: 1739

Now that I’ve finally had the time to start work on The Way Home Remastered, a ton of progress has been made. I spent a ton of today working on my first chapter, and I was able to get it done. Of course, there’s still revisions and editing and all that to deal with, but the first draft is completely finished.

I don’t want to say much about the book so far, but I will say that this book already is a higher quality than the original The Way Home and its sequel, Second Voyage. I can’t tell whether or not this will become a better book than Nothing But Garble, but I can always hope!

Peace.

Beginning of a New Book

Yo. I’m not dead.

As I’m sure most people who read this are aware, I have started to write a new book, “The Way Home Remastered.” In the first few weeks of my summer, though, I have been preoccupied with other tasks. I also tend to find it difficult to work on a book, especially in its first stages of development, without any outside encouragement or inspiration.

Nevertheless, I’m just about ready to resume work on the book. I’m hoping it releases in the middle of the summer, so I can give those to my fellow peers in high school.

Nothing But Garble will also re-release when the new school year starts. That’s two books to get hyped for during high school!

Peace.

Nothing But Garble Story Summaries Soon

After finally releasing all of the character summaries for Nothing But Garble, which you can see here, I will start creating summaries of the stories for those who have not been able to finish reading, or those who just want a reminder of what happened.

In addition to this, I will be releasing an online copy of Nothing But Garble, but I’m waiting for a few months before I do. My prediction is sometime from October to December of 2017. I’ll make sure to keep you updated on when the online form releases.

The paper copy of Nothing But Garble will re-release on September 10, 2017.

Thanks For Reading! (Nothing But Garble)

For the past one month, I have been allowing my peers to read my fourth book, “Nothing But Garble.” After a successful month, it’s time to say that I will no longer be lending my book to anyone until September 10th, 2017. It’s been a fun school year, and I look forward to seeing the public’s opinion on “Nothing But Garble” and the upcoming “The Way Home Remastered,” releasing this summer.

Lastly, I’d like to thank everyone for reading “Nothing But Garble.” I know not all of you were able to finish the entire story, but I will be releasing a pdf that contains the entire sometime after the summer.

Peace out, #Eamnation!
