Editing story

Today I am editing my story. It came to my attention from a friend that I kept switching to different viewpoints. (1st person, 3rd person, ect...) So, starting with the 1st chapter I am switching viewpoints. You can watch this process if you wish because I won't be unpublishing the story to make this change.

Because of the change there will be new information added and some information removed. Feel free to read as we go.

Also Inkitt is having a contest that I encourage you to participate in. Instead of voting the books will be picked based on how many reads it has/how many copies were read. Follow the link to go to the page. Please support these writers and help them get published. There can be 3 winners. (=

Today's update isn't really about my story, although it may come into play later. I'm addressing modesty. How far do we have to go with modesty?

As a Christian young women I believe modesty is a very important aspect of life. We don't want to cause our Christian brothers to stumble but where is the medium? Sometimes in our obsession with being modest we forget to dress like young ladies and not old maids.

I have a tendency to dress like an old maid, which is why I believe this is important. Growing up I wanted to dress like an old maid because it felt safe. If I looked like my grandma no guy would ever look at me twice, because chances are, I look like their grandma as well.

Now that I'm an adult my parents are starting to get concerned, so much so that I now hear about how I look like an old lady. I've been taking steps since I turned eighteen to look less like a grandma. Now that I'm twenty-one I think I've figured it out. People expect girls to dress very immodestly while other groups expect very modest.

This blog post isn't very organized today. Here's what brought these thoughts forward:
I decided to dress nicely today in a blouse, blue jeans, and a nice pair of earrings. I'm not one for selfies but I took a picture of myself with my computer and for once I was surprised.

Surprised? Why? You might ask that, but I don't often think of myself as beautiful. Because that would be vain. (=   But I was surprised to see that if I try not to look like a grandma I can look like a young lady.

Today in writing I will try and edit/write more in my book. I hope to have a chapter up by the second or third week in August.

Thanks for reading my rambles!

Chapter Four

Hello, I'm happy to announce that Chapter Four  is now up to be read. In this chapter our characters are finally freed from the cabin they have been stuck in, they meet Shadow and crew, and finally they face the demons of their past.

Unfortunately there is a problem with formatting right now that the Tech team is working on, so I apologize for that inconvenience. I hope it doesn't hurt your reading too much. I hope you enjoy the story. Chapter five is going to be a little more depressing, so I apologize in advance.

New Chapter

Hello everyone! I am proud to announce I finally posted my 3rd chapter for my story. Feel free to follow the link and read it. I am now working on my fourth chapter and I don't expect to get it done for a couple weeks.

Here are a couple quotes from the book:

Moses hesitated then wrote, I was still isolated. In a world where you can't hear, can't speak, and can't lip read you have very little opportunity. Besides, you can still hear a little. I literally hear nothing.

"Oh great. The last thing we need is Ross being able to swear at people without them knowing it," Storm covered her face with both her hands, muttering, "What is my life?"
