Writing Progress #1

Hey everyone!

After successfully writing my first draft in June (JuNoWriMo) with a little more than 50,000 words (you can read about it ), I joined Camp NaNoWriMo for this month (July) with a target of 60,000 words.

I’ve been writing non-stop from last one and a half month and I’m going to keep writing till I get this book done 😀

The plan is to revise the first draft and write the second draft along with it. My word count as of Day-13 is 31,415 words and I’m halfway through my second draft. I’m planning to finish 50K by 20th July (fingers-crossed.)

Kindle Paperwhite: The Good, The Bad and The Myth

Hey everyone,

At some point or the other every book-lover has written at least a single article on Kindle. I wanted to do too, but I also wanted to experience this much-talked-about e-reader first.

I’ll admit that I tried to stay away from e-readers for as long as possible. When I began reviewing books on request for my book blog, The Reading Bud, I was facing an unforeseen problem when the authors sent me their books in electronic format(e-books.) At that time, I was using Samsung Note-2, so I did the most sensible thing- I downloaded Aldiko. But after reading a couple of books, I started to feel the need for a better app. I tried a few other reading apps and finally found one that was better than Aldiko- UB Reader.

Aldiko-Book-Redaer

UB Reader was amazing and I totally loved it (and I still feel that it’s the best e-book reader for ANDROID.) I enjoyed this new experience of reading e-books on my notebook, but after a few months my eyes started to get stressed and I developed terrible headaches. I consulted my doctor and she told me that the backlight of my note was not good for my eyes at all.

Excerpt

I slowed down to a stop, bent on my knees and started to take in big gulps of air. I tried to listen for footsteps over the loud pounding in my head but I heard nothing.
