Authortube WIP Tag

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Since I’m working on typing up and editing my first drafting of my current work in progress, I thought this would be a great tag to do today. Originally, this tag was done by Jesse Eliot and I will link her channel down below so, I will go ahead and get to the questions now.

1. What is the working title of your book?

My current working title is On Fallen wings, I know it’s gonna have to change because it’s not really about falling angels primarily anymore, it’s a little bit more complicated now so, it’s gonna have to change eventually.

2. Where did the idea for your book come from?

The idea for On Fallen wings kind of spun from my curiosity of why Polytheistic religions gave way to Monotheistic religions that we have today.

3. What genre does your book fall under?

I would say that my book is a genre hybrid of urban fantasy and apocalyptic adventure.

4. Which actors would you choose to play in your movie rendition?

I’m not sure about Larathel but I do know that Lucifer will be played by Tom Hiedelson, Pymon by Blake Britson and masmore will be played by Tilda Swindon.

5. What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

Raised by a cursed under guardian of her life, Larathel just wanted to be a normal human being and go to college. When the dark part she didn’t know she had cane for her, that dream turned into a distant memory, not quite one sentence but it’s close.

6. Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?

I will definitely be self publishing my book.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I wrote the first draft of On Fallen wings in November of 2016 so It took me exactly 31 days to write it.

8. What other books would you compare the story to?

I haven’t really read any books that compare to what I’m working but I have read online that revelation by randy collie Wilson is quite similar.

9. Who or what inspired you to write the book?

My friend and author (2:53) and my love of history, religion and fantasy inspired me to write On fallen wings.

10.What else about your book might pick the reader’s interest?

If you like dark themes, fallen angels and gods, you’ll probably like this novel.

 

I’m tagging Natalia Leigh, Victoria Griffi, Breeze, reading, writing and life and Kenzy Stanley and I will link all of their channels for you down below for you in the description. So that’s it for now guys. If you liked what you saw make sure to like the video and subscribe for more like them. You can now preorder Revival Episode 2 from any major distributors.

Method To My Madness | The Smartpen

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, now that camp NaNoWriMo’s done, I thought that I’d bring you a video talking about my smart pen.

If this is the first video of mine you’re watching, then welcome to my channel. I am a writer primarily known for my post apocalyptic series, revival, and I am known for writing long hand.

I find writing long hand helps me get past writers’ block and it cuts off the distractions that I would have on the computer. So, I really like writing long hand and I’d be doing it anyways.

The one that I specifically use is the Livescribe 3 and I’m going to tell you a little bit more about it, how it works for me and some of its pros and cons.

I feel like I should preface all these by saying that I’m not sponsored by Livescribe, I just enjoy using their product.

First, I’ll start with how the Livescribe 3 pen works.

It basically has a camera in the tip of the pen that when you press down on its specific live scribe paper, it records your pen strokes as you write where you can convert it to text or convert it to a PDF. And that’s how I mostly use it. I use it to write up full manuscripts and export those to text files where I edit them and type them up. So what’s different about the Livescribe pens is that they use a specific dot pattern on the actual page to tell where your ink is.

The biggest downside to the Livescribe 3 pen is its app. Most of the time, I’m fighting to get my text of off the app, it crashes a lot and sometimes you lose sync for no reason and that’s the biggest downfall I find to this pen. Some things to keep in mind also is that the Livecsribe three pen is quite bigger than most but I find it useful really quickly.

I don’t know if it’s necessary a pro or a con but one thing I have noticed is the neater you write, the better your text file is going to come out. So, if you have a lot of scribbles or you’re writing a little sloppy that day, then you are going to see the computers having a hard time converting it into text and some of the words will come out jumbled and that is something I have noticed does take up some time editing after, but the amount of time I save with having the bulk of it typed up already into text that I can edit, it really balances out the amount of time I spend cutting out those gibberish paragraph and stuff that just don’t make sense and a large part, I do rewrite as I go back anyways as my editing process.

So, I do go along and I do a fast edit as I go because then, I’m catching a few things as I go along like plot holes and other things like that. I’ll definitely recommend this pen to anyone who’s looking to cut down on how much they type up after writing long hand.

So, that’s it for now guys, if you enjoyed this video, make sure to leave a like and if you want to see more videos from me, make sure to subscribe to my channel.

If you have any questions or you want me to explain a little bit more, feel free to leave a comment down below with Mother’s Day coming up, I always recommend my short story, Revival prologue. It is a post apocalyptic short story available for free where you follow a mother and daughter through the world after they leave their bomb shelter and if you haven’t checked out my Patreon, make sure to check that out, there’s always awesome stuff going up there and I’m going to be putting up a short story soon so, keep an eye out on those and I will talk to you guys later.

Camp NaNoWriMo | Final Update

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Bringing you a quick update on how I did on camp NaNoWriMo and somethings I’m gonna be working on in the coming future and what to expect on the channel soon.

So, I didn’t manage to make my work count. I was 1000 short on April 30th, on the 29th, I managed to write 2000 words and then on the 30th, I managed to write another 4000 I think, I was still a thousand off on my final word count but I managed to get that in the next day and I finished my first draft anyways of Time to let go so, I’ve got no problem with that win. Sort of win?

So with camp NaNoWriMo done, I’ve been trying to get my reading and editing back on track.

I’ve been reading Fahrenheit 451 and I’m really enjoying it so far, I’m almost done, I’ve been reading on the bus so, it’s a little bit slow and then, I will get back to Gone Girl after that.

And while I’m reading, I am also editing On Fallen wings and getting back into the swing of getting that typed up, and hopefully we’ll be ready to get it out to beta readers soon. In terms of videos, you guys can expect to see a BookBag video soon once I’m a little farther into Gone Girl and I’m also going to be putting up a video about my pen soon. I had a few people asking me during camp NaNoWriMo so I thought I’ll do a video kind of talking about it and some of its downfalls and some of the things that I like so, you can expect to see those coming soon.

The Authortube collab videos are still going up so, I’m gonna make sure to link that playlist down below for you guys so you can check that out if you haven’t already. I believe they’re gonna be going until the middle of June so, keep an eye out for those. I will be posting them on Twitter and making sure you guys know about them. I’ve been thinking of doing my other update videos like this so, if you guys like this format with the vlog style then let me know and I will find you more like these in the future.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out my Patreon, make sure to head over there and have a look. I put up behind the scenes stuff, I’m also gonna be putting up some free short stories for my Patreons so you can expect those soon.

I think that’s it for now guys, if you want to let me know how you did in camp NaNoWriMo, I’d love to hear in the comments down below. Make sure to like this video and subscribe for more videos from me.

I will talk to you guys later and I hope you had a good camp at NaNoWriMo.
