  1. Hi all:

    I found I had some time on my hands with the whole pandemic thing so in august I decided to write a book instead of reading or watching someone else's work.

    In my case it was a Super Hero/Fantasy... so it may be slightly off genre for this group- but its definitely fantasy... just set in 2020. I am writing the second book now and then need to go back and fix the first to match the second. They are short with the first one around 40k words and the second now I am on ~15k.

    If anyone wants to see them give me a PM and I can send you a google link.

    I did "self publish" the first one on amazon just to see how it all worked. good thing is I can still go back and edit it, but I gave it away for free as it is now and some people got it! heh. some of my writing can be found at artIrl.com

    thanks and I'll see how I can help the community here-

    40k in a month! I'm jealous. Despite that, I overcome my jealousy and welcome you to the Scribes.
  3. thanks. I didn't say it was a GOOD 40k. I tried to write 2k a day. I was on furlough from COVID so i decided i'd take the percentage I was not working and write with it.
    I am slowing down now as my furlough is done.. at least for the next couple months. see how that goes.

    Oh good for you . It must feel nice already completing one and being on the your second book . And me myself still stuck on the world building phase .
  5. Welcome Joshua! I hope the Scribes community can be of help to you as you dive deeper into your writing and self-publishing journey. Good to have you here. :)
  6. I cheated and the world is just an alternate history version of ours.. and only recently with 1962 being the year of divergence. So while some things are different... like no Ben and Jerry's, and they use the metric system in the U.S.... and super heroes.. its otherwise the same. so shortcut!
