Multiple POV

Switching viewpoints today. I wasn’t thinking I would end up writing from another POV in this book, but today it turned out that way. Then while I was writing today, I had the idea pop into my head that I may end up crisscrossing many different POV’s from here on out. The ones in the story, but still, I’ve been fairly consistent with not doing that. I do a couple POV’s but not a lot.It’d be new for me period. I usually don’t follow a strict rule with how many scenes a person can hold and whatnot. If my editor thinks one person hasn’t been shown enough, she may mention it and I’ll inject some more, but overall, I write as the people (and scenes) come to me, as the story develops. For me, that’s my writing style now. I may change that later on, but for now I can safely say it’s my style.I think of George R.R. Martin when I consider so many different POV’s. My thoughts are mixed on all the ones he uses so I try to be conscious of that and ensure that at the end of the day, it doesn’t tak…

Good enough

So today I’ll be fixing the menu and the pages on this site. In case you’ve tried to use one of those things in the past two days and got an error. It will be fixed today.Didn’t get as many words as I would have liked, but it’s good enough. I was busy going back and forth on http://scifiideas.com (love the site!). I wanted to find ideas for planets and names because as I was writing, a lot of what I wrote depended on the planet I was describing. Since I had new thoughts in mind, I couldn’t get out of it simply by doing a short {note – research} in my writing.Well, I could’ve but because a lot of the current story information was based on the specifics of said specific planet, I needed at least a few details to keep me going. Otherwise when I came back to that place in editing, there would be so few details I would find myself lost as to what I was doing, and the actual story would be missing.So I took the stance of risking word count to make sure I knew enough about a new planet that …

Moving day

Been having fun all day long with moving things. Yesterday and the weekend includes that.

BUT I wanted to let you know so that if you follow this blog by email (this has nothing to do with the newsletter) or the “follow” option through wordpress, come back here on Friday, or next week, and refollow to be safe. Things may not switch.So again, if you follow this blog for any method but the newsletter, please come back to kimberlysueiverson.com next week (or this Friday things should have changed) and refollow. :)

More than I figured

I’m surprised I got as many numbers as I did today. I was sluggish to start and then it just didn’t feel like I’d been writing long. Always surprising to look back and go . . . oh! I got a bunch, haha. Mostly details today, not as much story. Having to introduce the place where the majority of this book will take place.Under Empty Stars Word count I started the day with: 11,495Word count I ended the day with: 12,705Total for the day: 1,210 words

Story isa flying

Gosh I love this story. It’s at the point where I have to force myself to stop writing when time is up. I am starting to have a feeling this series may merge into another book. I thought this book was the last, but I may have one more in it. We’ll see. I feel like this one is going to be based on the characters Ellie, Jack, Jeremiah, and Stone. Ancient Scars was based off of Ellie and Claude with the other men, but more so Ellie and her father’s dynamic.If I don’t solve all the answers in this book then I may need one more to solve the Ellie and Claude storyline.Under Empty Stars Word count I started the day with: 9,869Word count I ended the day with: 11,495Total for the day: 1,626 words

How would I describe the series?

Okay, updated my books page to include the information for Under Empty Starsas well as the information for when Ancient Scars is releasing, and the other novels. Still have to make a cover for the short story I finished as well as a page, and finish typing up the story – tentative title for that one is Bittersweet Reality. Also the other shorts I have waiting. The Riverand the Into the Midstcompilation. Also updated my sidebar for the blog finally. Been the same format for a while so it needed one.(Sidenote: arch of my right foot is itching like crazy so I’m scooching around in the chair trying to itch it through my boot – not easy! haha)I was thinking about something just a bit ago too. What is the best way to describe The Guardian of Life series for those who haven’t seen me talking about it? The best way to describe The Guardian of Life series is a bit Mother Earth meets Mad Max meets Dune meets Total Recall meets dare I have the audacity to put it in the same category Star Wars. O…

Lots done

In my newsletter I shared the cover for Under Empty Stars. I’ll add it to this post on Monday, or tomorrow if I keep writing during the weekend. I sorta want to. Another great day for words. Super happy about that.I received Daughter of the Red Planetand released it for sale via CreateSpace. It’ll take a week for the stores like Amazon and Barnes and Noble to feature it though.Just over halfway done with the read through of Ancient Scars before I send it off to Jeanie for her first thoughts. Wiped out so now I gots yard work to deal with.Word count I started the day with: 3,133Word count I ended the day with: 5,674Total for the day: 2,541 words
