Boy, am I glad November's over. Querying: Nothing has changed here. And it's probably going to be longer than I thought before I'm able to jump back in. Current Novel WIPs: THE GODWING WAGER - So, apparently saying I'm not going to work on something is a good way for me to get inspired to… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for November
OMG! This outlining method changed my life! So, I've been watching Kat @Kat_tastic for several years. A couple months ago she started a weekly writing vlog series showing her process while she drafted a new manuscript. During this vlog she talked a lot, and I'd heard her mention it before but didn't take much notice… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 8
Whoops! I fell off the wagon again. Sorry it's so late but it's been a hectic month already. Halloween, our son turned 14 on the first, he had a sleepover on the second to the third, after which we did a crap ton of shopping, and spent yesterday with family! So, with all of that,… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for October
I love writing but it might be the death of me. After finishing book 2 of my dragon series, I realized it was time to give book 1 a new name. That's where I'm going to start this post so I can easily reference it (SPOILER: I never reference it LOL) FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS… Continue reading If I die, my book did it. Meet my murders.
I've been deep in the revision trenches this last week and as a result have been completely unable to come up with a blog topic. So, I took to Twitter and asked for a topic. Honestly, I didn't think I'd get a response but I was happy to be wrong. Chris Williams asked how about… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 7 – #amwriting thoughts on making writing a career
It took 3 fewer weeks than I planned and about 13K fewer words but it doesn't matter because I reached the end of my WIP! The rough draft, that is. 😉 Remember, this is really rough. There are so many placeholders. There's an entire sequence that will most likely consist of multiple scenes that is… Continue reading #WIPWednesday Writing update: Rough draft complete!
Let me know if I'm posting too many of these but since I've been writing every day my thoughts are full of writing-related things and this is where I go to vent them. LOL I'm so incredibly pleased with my current trajectory in writing. I have goals that I believe are achievable. I'm so glad… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 6
The end of this year is going to be insane while I try to get everything done that I have planned. I touched on this in my monthly update but I'm ready to go into a more detail here. Right now: I'm writing SKIN AND SCALE (SAS) the "sequel" to FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS (FSCD.)… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 5
What's this? A timely update?! I know, I can't believe it either. Querying: From Stars, Come Dragons: I'm officially taking this one off the table. Technically, there's still one publisher I haven't heard from but that's OK. I'm going to file it as a rejection and move on because I have PLANS! Current Novel… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for September
Writing has been going really well this week! I've been going strong on my new-old WIP (the sequel to FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS) currently titled SKIN AND SCALE. As you can see, by the name of the file in the word count target photo, I started writing this on August 28th. Exactly one month ago.… Continue reading Writing Role Call
