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.
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!
I've written so much this week, on so many different WIPs, I've lost track of my word count and nearly lost my mind. I followed my shiny new toy for a little while. Wrote almost 4K on that, plus a LOT of notes for world building, plot and character development. I revised my short story… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 1
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
I got quite a bit done last week! I wrote and revised my short story to be released May 15th and am waiting on feedback from my critique partner, Lindsay. That's right! I have a critique partner! 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
If you didn't see my last post [here,] I'll give you a quick recap. Starting in May, I plan to post a short story on the fifteenth of every month! 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
So, I try to steer away from putting unneeded stress, by way of promises and deadlines, on myself. But... what the heck. Here's what I'm planning... Short stories! And I'm going to publish them right here. Well, not right here. In this post. But here on my blog. Oh, you get the point. LOL Now,… Continue reading Announcement: This is scary
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
