As it stands, to date I have written one short story (20k words) and two novels (71K and 91k words). I am currently doing an edit on the first draft of novel #1, Rasere’s War. I can see as I go from chapter to chapter that my writing slowly got a little bit better. Not near as good as my second novel, but improving nonetheless. I did have the luxury of having someone else give it a read through, but she mostly caught spelling errors and the like. As I go through it I see a lot of run-on sentences, repetition of words, and filler sentences that add nothing to the story.
My plan is to get Rasere’s War to beta readers to solicit their input and then proceed to a final draft for self-publication by early next year. (2018)
