Welcome to the official blog of Hannah Hounshell. Here you can follow along with me as I stumble along the path to publication. Let's just hope I don't fall into too many potholes along the way. Wish me luck ^_~

New chapter finished and another on the way
So I've decided that I am the queen of understatments XD
When I put in my last blog that chapter 20 would have a large already written chunk given a rewrite...I didn't realize how much of a rewrite it would need....mmyeah. Let's just say it's VERY different now then it was, and leave it at that, ok?
Anyway, chapter 20 was finished three days ago. It would've been finished much earlier, but like I said...major rewrite was needed. Plus I wasn't happy with the beginning or the end, so I went back and rewrote them. Now I'm as happy as I'm going to get with it until I can have a beta reader go over it for me.
Chapter 21 is going pretty darn good right now, but I have a feeling that it's not gonna last. It has about 3-4 pages at the moment, and there are another 3 written in my notebook. However, this is a chapter from Shadow's view, and I never know what she's going to do past the basic outline...yeah.
Sounds crazy, I know, but my characters certainly have minds of their own, and when I decided to give Shadow a voice of her own...let's just say I had no idea what I was in for XD
Another thing is...I'm not gonna be done by Febuary. As much as it sucks to say that, its true. Including chapter 21, I still have ten chapters and an epilogue to write, and it's already the 16th of january. So I'm gonna be set back a bit, but either way, I'm just about done.
Now, I still have...two beta copies out there. You know who you are, folks. I need those back, ok? In part because I need the binders themselves for the chapters I'm writting, but also cause I've rewritten those chapters and there's just no point in you reading old stuff. If you can't arrange for me to pick them up, give me a call, ok? I may be able to figure out an alternative.
Alright guys, thats all for I've got for you. Wal-mart didn't slow down like it usually does this time of year, so I don't know how long it'll take me to get chapter 21 done. Normally I'd say a week or so...but it's all up in the air. If Shadow cooperates...I'll be done in a week. If not...um....I'll get back to you on that XD
