I'm making this post as an encouragement. In case any of you have struggled or are struggling with a common stress a lot of writers have about not being original. First, let me tell you where this started. I was watching a new video from Alexa Donne. She writes YA fantasy and has a YouTube… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 17
Mini rant 😅 I believe the above image is why so many authors stress out about writing. After English teachers have convinced them their writing has to mean something to mean anything. It's one of the many things that kept me down about my own writing for so long. AND just because an author doesn't… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 16
This book has been a constant fight but I'm loving the characters and their story is super cute. Revisions are coming along nicely. Slower than I'd like but nicely. lol I'm not exactly sure when it will be up for pre-order but you can now add FIGHTING FATE to your Goodreads lists! Without further ado,… Continue reading Fighting Fate Cover and Blurb Reveal!
This month has been nuts! Even though I took a vacation from work, I don't feel rested at all! And don't have nearly enough writing to show for it. But, hey! At least I got some spring cleaning done! As far as the writing goes. It's going! And I hope I've found a way to… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 15
Sorry this is so late! After publishing, I needed a break from things. Back on track now! Back to writing, going to get some giveaway's going soon. I designed and purchased some SWAG; bookmark and stickers! Lots of things to do and catch up on. Can't wait! Querying: Not Querying for the foreseeable future. Current… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for April
So many thoughts. Not sure if I should share them. I want to. Of course but it seems every time I give an update about what I'm doing or what my goals are, the next second they change and the update becomes obsolete. A question just sprung out of this... How do I marry being… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 12
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.
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
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
