Proofreading Services for Indie Authors

Proofreading Services - Lauren Mayhew AuthorAs a self-published author myself, I know how hard it is to proofread your own work. You’ll never find all of the typos, as you know exactly what the sentence is supposed to say, and your brain skips past the errors automatically. I think a certain degree of errors are expected in self-published works, because not all of us can afford to pay a high-end proofreader, or two, to look over our books. But, you should never hit the publish button without having at least one person read through it.  Continue reading “Proofreading Services for Indie Authors”

50,000 Words in 50 Days – Update 3

As you can see from the picture on the left, I completed my 50,000 words in 50 days challenge! I’m feeling very proud of myself right now, as this book just did not want to be written.

If you’ve followed my previous blogs about writing the Liliana trilogy, you’ll know that I really struggled to write the second book. It took me 18 months – yes that’s right – 18 long, long months. Because of this, I sort of fell out of love with writing this series, and I had no motivation whatsoever to write the third one. With a challenge like this one, I had no choice but to write it.

Obviously, it’s nowhere near finished. It’s probably the worst draft I’ve ever written, but that’s the whole point of doing a challenge like this. It’s quantity, not quality. You put the quality in during draft 2 and the edits! Continue reading “50,000 Words in 50 Days – Update 3”

50,000 Words in 50 Days – Update 1

50K50Days - Day 17 - Lauren Mayhew AuthorIt’s day 19 of my writing challenge, as I write this, and I’m glad to say that everything is going well so far.

As you can see from the picture on the left, by Day 17 I was already at 18,376 words. That’s 1,376 words ahead of schedule, so I gave myself the day off on day 18.

I am surprised at how easy I’ve been finding this so far. It took me a whole year of procrastination to get round to writing this book, and now that I’ve got the ball rolling, I don’t know what took me so long. Continue reading “50,000 Words in 50 Days – Update 1”
