Chapter Update: 08/25/2023 – In Kindle Vella (coming soon) and a Premium member link.
Chapter 3 has been updated
This was only in the villain’s head. (Something new for me, but quite fun) I know you’re curious as to how this is going to end. And how could I promise you an HEA and for who? What will happen to the baby? Will they work out the throuple in the end? Will Maddox step aside if Derek catches powerful feelings for Adira, while still staying in their lives as if it doesn’t matter? And then there’s the rest of the plot. The next episode moves four years ahead, so let’s see. Join me on the journey.
My current writing process
I’m working in LivingWriter.com on the story. I’m trying to move away from Google docs.
I like that I can add my author’s notes (keep track of what I say and offer more words without worrying about a word count like I do when I type it fresh in kindle vella platform.
I’m also using storyoriginapp.com to keep up with my word count and offer beta copies behind a paywall for my premium and alpha readers. This is fun and exciting. Maybe I’ll offer it over on my site in a full book later. We’ll see how the turnout comes.
I’m using my blog to track my writer’s thoughts. The deep ones I can’t share in Author’s Notes and only real writers can understand.
So I did use ChatGPT to help me outline after giving it a detailed synopsis (about a page long) but I’m finding myself moving a lot of things around at least having an outline to remember a lot of the things I’d have to come back and add.
It’s my first time using ChatGPT on a live book, and I hope this will help this paper write a lot faster so I can give my readers the chapters.
Moving things around meaning, a lot of the things ChatGPT told me to write in Chapters 3 and 4 I managed to manipulate in Chapter 1, and then in Chapter 4, I’m pulling from Chapters 5 and six, so I’m a little ahead of the game, but I’m still following The Save the Cat method in my telling of the story.
Having the outline, makes me write more because I know where I’m going and I can map out in my head better how to get to scenes faster and not be so wordy.
My editing process”
I use Grammarly which works well in livingwriter and then I’ll post it in my Kindle Vella, check the grammar some more, read it out loud, and then if I’m satisfied, I’ll post it.
Got questions? Ask away in the comments. I’m eager to share my journey and work out any confusion.
