First, I want to thank you all for supporting my first short story, Under the Amethyst Sky. It was awesome to see so many of you reading and liking! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! And I hope you come back for more, because this Friday, June 15th, I'll be posting another short story! And… Continue reading June Short Story Title and Cover Reveal
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
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! 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?
It's been a rough week. Our son came down with Influenza A and ended up in the hospital with a 104.1F temperature. There are school things going on and he's missed three and a half days at this point. My day job has been more demanding than normal. And I haven't had a full, restful… Continue reading Mini update
This will be the second week in a row, and by happenstance coinciding with the weeks of the year, that I've done a weekly status update. Normally, I'd limit updates to monthly, but things are happening right along that make weekly updates possible. What I'm trying to get at is, don't get too used to… Continue reading I’m setting a dangerous standard
The last month, I've been having a blast chatting with a lovely lady on Twitter, Lindsay Newton, (visit her website too!) about our adventures in writing. We met through #Pitmad in December and have kept up sharing our ups and downs with submitting our work to agents and publishers. Today, I was in need of… Continue reading Don’t discount cliche advice!
Last week was a great start to the new year. I had set a goal of writing 5000 words on the first draft of my WIP, From the Vast, which I'd planned on finishing before starting on the sequel to From Stars, Come Dragons, but I put it aside when the sequel consumed my brain.… Continue reading 2018 is off to a great start!
My plate was pretty well full when I signed with FaB to publish my book. My phone had a long list of reminders and was pinging me daily about one thing or another. And I don't know about you, but I can't stand a ringing, dinging or pinging phone. So, I'm ditching it! Not the… Continue reading Getting Organized
