Had a pretty good week. Or weekend, actually LOL I'm having difficulties carving out time to write on weekdays, due to work stress and being busy with other things, but Saturday and Sunday were great! I wrote over 3K words between them. Again, all my words were for my new WIP. Still no title. Just,… Continue reading Writing & Goals: Weekly Update
I've not made a lot of progress, but I can fill in a spot or two 🙂 I've only read 7 books so far. I'm a slow reader and put family, work, and writing above reading. So it's slow going 😛 The one's in bold are the updates. A book published this year A book… Continue reading 2018 Book Challenge UPDATE
OMG! Such a great writing week! I wrote around 7K words and expect to write at least that much this week 🙂 I wrote on my new WIP. Which, so far, only has an abbreviation, TDB. In my last monthly update, I let you know it was an epic high fantasy. I've always been a… Continue reading Writing, Goals, & Question: Weekly Update – Is my WIP Epic Fantasy, High Fantasy, or both?
WELP! This is fantastic... So, I've been going in circles with this MS, book 2 of The Seven Stars Series, and I think I finally figured out why. There was a GIANT plot hole. Like, EPIC.

Well, this is going to be a tough update. I made some good strides with my writing goal. Ended up with 6K words out of the 8K I was shooting for. Untitled book 2 of The Seven Stars series is now over 18K words total. I'm still waiting on feedback from my editor on my… Continue reading Writing & Goals: A tough update
It’s the first of the month! Time for another writing update! Querying: While I'm deep in the revising trenches preparing to publish, querying will be on hold. Current WIPs: From Stars, Come Dragons (The Seven Stars #1) - Had a great month with this. I received feedback from my content editor. Not as bad as… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for January
Well, I thought things would get back to normal after my son got over Influenza A, but nothing is ever that easy, is it? Poor kid had one good day last week, then came down with the stomach flu. 😦 Fortunately, he's come out on the other side a little tired, but functional. Ready for… Continue reading Writing and Goals: An even minier update?
Just had sort of an ah-ha moment listening to the the Writing Excuses podcast. For those of you not familiar with this cast, it's a group of published writer, from different genres, discussing different aspects of the writing process.
