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!
Stress outside of writing is what makes writing difficult for me. Work has been a huge source of stress since my supervisor retired in March and I took on a lot of the work he did. Months went by and, though I wrote, I didn't get far on any one thing. Then, one day a… Continue reading UPDATE 7: Guild of Tears | Stressed out

It's frustrating, but I have so many other things I'm working on, I've been able to ignore my frustration. Current Novel WIPs: I'm getting myself into a lot of… Continue reading Writing: Monthly update for May
Recently, I discovered that I have absolutely no idea how to share my writing journey. My husband says my posts are great. No one else has complained about them, but I'm not happy with them. For example, my monthly updates are copy, paste, replace old info with new info, repeat. I think the structure of… Continue reading A new brand of writer’s block
I stood in my watchtower, under the amethyst sky, waiting for them to appear. A chill spread under my skin. The closer they came, the quicker the ice ran through my veins. Soon, the clouds would bend to my heart. Take the shape only I was meant to give them. But only for a moment,… Continue reading Under the Amethyst Sky

I submitted it to 2 agents… Continue reading Writing: Monthly update for April
