Wendy May's Current Novels Progress

Current state of Novel Outlines & Rough Drafts
Well met,

I thought it would be interesting to make a data graph showing the progress of my novels whether in outline or rough draft form. I tried finding a percentage bar generator but those require the use of an actual website platform and not a blog site.

One day I'll get a Word-press site of my own. One day.

Until then, here's a breakdown of what I'm up to and how I'm plotting along. See what I did there? Yep, I caught that roll of your eyes. I know, I know, that was terrible and bad. I'm rightly ashamed. (*Winks an eye*) This is why I'm an indie author and not a comedian. Ha!

Multi-genre Novels in Progress
Here's a colorful graph showing the titles and percentage in bar form. Flash of Steel and Heart of Steel are currently in their final rough draft forms. The rest are being outlined from top to bottom or are in their first state of rough draft.



This graph shows the numbers in an easier form. The num…

An Autumn Fairy Photo Manipulation

Here again this self published writer dwells into the unknown by trying her hand at photo manipulation.

Here is the stock photo provided by Faestock at Deviantart as the base. I also used butterfly wings from Jinxmim at the same site as well. The rest of the stock photos are from Pixabay. The model uses her own makeup on her eyes, shoulders, and also on her fingers. Which to be honest was annoying to work with so I ended up painting over those areas. I also removed her floral barrettes to add my own flourish to her hair.

And here is the finished artwork I wanted to share with you all. To save on mobile users bandwidth I didn't upload the full version but instead a medium-sized one. Of course I can be biased here but I think it's very pretty. I love how the light enhances the wings. What I dislike is how the hair falls a bit too strangely on her arm. I need to work on how to airbrush that more properly. Overall it gives an autumn look and feel. Which is great, it's my favorite season.

Thank you for viewing!
