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 think I've accomplished a decent amount already this year. 2019 is shaping up to be a good one. Querying: Resubmitted to an editor at a press and to 3 other agents because why not? I needed this. And to give myself permission to move on from the "Dragon" book. Whatever happens at this point,… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for January
Drafting again! Four weeks into 2019 and I've already gone off the rails. I had every intention of finishing the WIPs I had already started. Or at least one of them. And I tried. I really did. But it didn't work out. After finishing my revision to resubmit to the publisher who had requested it,… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 11
2019 WRITING GOALS! I want to write every day. Or at least do something writing-related every day. Finish drafting the following WIPs (in no particular order) The Godwing Wager Under the Amethyst Sky Guild of Tears Legacy Book 1 (This is technically an old project. I'm using the series name because I don't have a… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 10
Boy, am I glad November's over. Querying: Nothing has changed here. And it's probably going to be longer than I thought before I'm able to jump back in. Current Novel WIPs: THE GODWING WAGER - So, apparently saying I'm not going to work on something is a good way for me to get inspired to… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for November
OMG! This outlining method changed my life! So, I've been watching Kat @Kat_tastic for several years. A couple months ago she started a weekly writing vlog series showing her process while she drafted a new manuscript. During this vlog she talked a lot, and I'd heard her mention it before but didn't take much notice… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 8
Whoops! I fell off the wagon again. Sorry it's so late but it's been a hectic month already. Halloween, our son turned 14 on the first, he had a sleepover on the second to the third, after which we did a crap ton of shopping, and spent yesterday with family! So, with all of that,… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for October
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!
What's this? A timely update?! I know, I can't believe it either. Querying: From Stars, Come Dragons: I'm officially taking this one off the table. Technically, there's still one publisher I haven't heard from but that's OK. I'm going to file it as a rejection and move on because I have PLANS! Current Novel… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for September
