New Look and Other News!

About a week ago I was messing with my old template and somehow deleted all the pages, so I had to set up a new template, the one you are viewing now. I hope you like it, I think it personally looks better than my old template, but I think it has to do with its freshness.


In other news, I recently began editing my first book: The Impenetrable Spy, in order to make the quality of it comparable to my newer writings. Some sentences are completely gone, some are edited a bit, and others have been smashed together so the writing could flow better. Other things are also being considered (making the plot more believable by twisting some details, and editing dialogue). Unfortunately, the writing itself will not be the same, but the relative story will. It's kind of bittersweet for me: although the quality will be MUCH better, the laughs from reading a 10-year-old's writing will be gone (for the most part, I might keep the scene with Zack eating Apple Jacks on the plane in, haha!) I'll make sure to save the old version for my own personal enjoyment. 

I also received some professional input on my newest WIP, Agent J. I'm looking to have this out by May, if I am able to complete the writing and editing fast enough. I believe this will be my first work that will extend over 100 pages. I'm not very far into the story, but I think this book will be around 170 pages. I focus on quality, not quantity, but this book has much more story to it. 

What's coming up: A post including pictures from the RUSH concert I recently attended at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, a preview of Agent J and the Impenetrable Spy, some advice regarding having fun at what you do, and a special surprise tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
