I am very happy to announce that I am only $10 shy of my goal for buying this novel writing software WriteItNow on Amazon. I was going to only buy the software, but Amazon suggests I also buy 2 paperback books. One is called “Making the most of WriteItNow4” and that is $14.40 and considering I am new to that software, I should probably buy it. The other is called “Plot and Structure: Techniques and exercises for crafting a plot that grips readers from start to finish.” That one is $11.08. Then of course the actual software is $69.95 and the total will be $95.43. Free shipping, thank goodness lol. I’m not sure if there will be taxes added onto the total though.
I’ve been posting the link to my Etsy Shop with coupons and today I have received 3 orders. Of course, I still need maybe 1 or 2 orders depending on how much is spent and how much is taken away from Etsy fees. If it equals $10 then I will most certainly be able to buy this software and books by next Wednesday after all the PayPal transfers go through.
I have already started a transfer from my checking account to PayPal for $20, even though Etsy is only going to deposit $11.84 tomorrow. There is another deposit for next Monday for $14.85 and I have an automatic transfer of $20 to my PayPal account this weekend, so I should be good to go.
I’m really excited because I am finally making my childhood dream of writing fiction come true. I have a lot of reading to do this week. I have some ebooks on writing fiction that I bought and a Dungeons & Dragons handbook that I am going to study that will help me with not only character creation but also to learn more about all the races and classes. I want to make it clear that I am not writing a D&D book, but I will use the D&D rules and I may possibly play my own game of D&D to help me write, which means I will also need some D&D dice. Hey, I want it to be as authentic as I can lol. I have found some for $3.64 and added them to my Amazon wish list.
I have already begun the process of creating characters. I have 2 trolls and 1 ogre as the bad guys and I have 6 good guys who are all going to be members of my quest party. There is so much work to be done. I will need to create an entire world, which means names of places and perhaps even mapping out the entire world I will be creating. Of course, I will start with specific locations and then go from there.
There is so much to do and I will have so much fun doing it and I want to thank all the people who have bought keychains, earrings and bracelets from my Etsy shop to help me reach my goal. This is such an awesome dream come true and I cannot wait to begin.
