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!
It’s the first of the month, or close enough lol Time for another writing update! Querying: From Stars, Come Dragons: One rejection. No other responses yet. 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
It’s the first of the month, or close enough lol Time for another writing update! Querying: Things happened. Not going to go into detail today, but I am no longer going to be publishing with Fyre and Brimstone. So, I'm taking From Stars, Come Dragons back on the road! I submitted it to 2 agents… Continue reading Writing: Monthly update for April

Lindsay and I met via Twitter the beginning of this year. She's been super supportive and she writes… Continue reading Writing & Goals: Weekly update

I'm excited and a little nervous about this, but I think it will be good for me. A great way to keep me moving and… Continue reading Writing & Goals: Weekly Update
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
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. The question, vaguely, was "How does this character know this thing?" And I couldn't answer the question without breaking… Continue reading Writing and Goals: Weekly Update
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
