Wow guys! 

It’s very inspiring, motivating and captivating to see that you guys are supporting me in large numbers every day!

55 followers is a milestone for me and I am proud of each and every single one of you for being the people that can be supportive and not hateful. 

In saying this I am currently in the process of getting a novel cover made and ready for my novel. 

I am also getting chapters 1-2 edited and will start writing chapter 3 tomorrow. 

It’s all moving so quickly and I’m glad!

I hope you guys look forward to buying my novel as much as I am finishing it for you to read and share on!

Peace out guys, it’s midnight. I have sleep to get and a novel chapter or two to write today. 

I haven’t started on my NaNoWriMo project yet and I do apologise to those that were looking forward to it. 

I’m just intent on writing this novel and want to perfect and make it the best possible without further procrastination.

With the successful completion of my first chapter and prologue I have now moved into writing my second chapter. And third. And fourth. And thirtieth. 

With my editor finished with my prologue edits and now working on my first chapter edits over the next week, I have prepared to write the rest of my manuscript. 

Keep in mind that I am sending my manuscript to my editor as I write it, one chapter at a time. Just so it’s not over whelming and so that I may move through the process a little faster then what most would expect. 

I am fifteen and so I do have a lot of spare time on my hands. 

The last couple of days I have actually dedicated whole days to writing which, should I continue to do this, will allow me to complete my first novel manuscript by October 2015. 

I’m saying this my story will have a max of four books in its series but I hope will have a minimum of three. 

If I am successful with the first, which so far I have been, and can get you guys supporting, reviewing, buying and sharing out my book to your friends and family, getting them buying it – I hope to make this book a series of 4 books over the course of two years. 

You may think my deadlines are rediculous but I think – still being a kid I need the extra kick in the you know where for motivation. 

As I said – with edits currently under way with my first chapter I now move onto my second chapter. Hopefully on my way to completing my novel. 

For all you beta readers I will send you the chapter parts as they are finished with editing and can be printed for my final manuscript. 

Peace be with you all,

– Your Pal, Jason

Prologue Completed

Hey guys!

So I finally completed my first prologue draft and so far I’m very impressed with it. 

I’m now looking for criticism before I move on as well as if it should be longer, shorter, details, flow, grammar/punctuation and all that stuff and also so I know if it should be chapter one or not. 
I’m currently about to start what I think chapter one will be. 
Please comment your email if you want to be a beta reader and assistant editor. 
I am taking numerous people for this.

So I have started my draft for this already and have scrapped my first project idea. 

Maybe I’ll write that later? That’s unknown right now. 

So with the release of Ark: Survival Evolved and seeing Jurassic World they have both inspired me into creating my own I guess, ‘twist’. 

I am under no way affiliated or trying to copy them in any way. 

As they would say:

Let everyone tell their own stories in their own way! 

I am very excited to write this and look forward to what I can accomplish. 

Will give a intro to it after I write and revise over it however the whole book will have to be purchased. 

I hope you guys look forward to reading and buying it as much as I am writing it!

So guys, I completed quite a large proportion of my plan already!

Basically I wanted to blog my plan to see the level of interest associated with my very first ever novel project. 

This blog I have been able to cover and complete my blurb/plot idea. This was very basic and as I move through the different stages I will change this level to intermediate and then advanced to signify my location, for lack of better words, in the process. 

I guess I will be able to give more detail in Project 1 – Novel – Plan (2) under th novel category located at JasonMBlogs.wordpress.com. 

Thanks for reading. 

I am going to go to bed no and will create part 2 and hopefully further in the process after school. 

Please drop a comment before you go letting me know what you think about this plan and your level of interest for my plot. 

I also forgot to mention that I will complete my plan in actual detail in part two or three to this plan. 

Thanks again,
