Well I have good news I have written 50k words in a month and what I wrote will be turning into a book that I plan on publishing Later this year. The Name of the Book is Love on the banks of the Nile. The Cover was made for me and I will be forever grateful to that person for making such a amazing cover for me. But yeah last year in November I achieved a dream of mine to write 50k words into a book and well I did just that. The Link below is the cover

The fun part is slamming that story on paper. The hard part is editing it to have more punch. I've been doing a lot of studying on editing and have even had a short sample fine tuned by Jerry Jenkins, whose writing guild I am actually in. I used to be in the Christian Writers Guild and Jerry took over that while I was there before the structure and financial needs forced it to close. 

A really good book on editing is Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Enni Brown and Dave King. If you haven't studied this one yet, I recommend it.

Another fun thing to try (and possibly drive yourself nuts) is try NaNoEdMo - you have to spend at least 50 hours in one month editing your work. I did this once and I was still working full time and recently married. Not easy to pull off, but it was fun and I learned a lot from the effort.

If you want me to give it a looksie, I can do that. Know that I'll hack up fiction the way I was trained by that book, Jerry, and several others over the years. I do a lot better with fiction than non-fiction editing, but being a member of the Gaiscioch Magazine for it's two year existence has helped with both editing and writing. =)

It's a lot of work to produce a book, but make sure you also enjoy the journey and learn everything you can to improve your writing and make your voice sing in the words. =)

And make sure you do well when you return to college. That's another journey of work that should also be enjoyed learning the things you really like to mess with and want to work with the rest of your life.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

Novel is in the Edit phase now. Also will be writing a short story that is closely related to the Novel but it is meant to be read on its own. But yeah my Aim is to get the novel published hopefully by November of this year.

Thanks Kitty and Eiahn. I do not play Guild wars 2 anymore and I do not plan on playing it again. Hopefully we can meet in another game that the family will be playing in. Maybe in Diablo 3 depending if I want to start a Adventure in it or not. As I am currently playing that game and it is really fun.
