Updates and Tips

Okay, so we're on the halfway mark to finishing the rewrite! Last night, we finished off part one with 9k words! By the end of our shift, we were so tired we forgot to shut down our computers and left them to overheat, lol. Anyways, just wanted to share the glorious news, if anyone cared.

Also, me and my sister found a very good way to fix little plot problems and or build a stronger, more sturdy plot. Now, we know it sounds bizarre, but we came across this brilliant idea to read reviews of books that match the genre you're writing. We don't know if anyone does this, or if it helps anyone at all, but my sister and I would just sit down and read book reviews on books that match our genre. If there's a bad review of the book, and there's a same weakness in our story, we would go back and try to emphasize anything we missed or take out all the unnecessarry baggage. If it's a good review of the book, we would keep our eyes out for more of those or this or that. DOes that make sense? We hope it does, because it helps us a lot, and it would be selfish not to share this discovery(if it is a discovery, even).

Anyways, have a good rest of the day. Write, write, write, and good luck to all!
