And Then Life Happens

I was going to start my new shiny this week. I have yet to write a single word of it. Because life happens. Sometimes personal stuff steps in and takes center stage and everything else gets ignored (how many cliches can I use in this post? Let’s count). That was this week. It’s likely going […]

Reporting from the Trenches (#1) + Workshops!

The Query Trench Report (#1): It’s been weeks since I’ve heard from any agents. No rejections, no ‘please send more’, no nothin’. I need to check how long it’s been and either follow up (only on the agents that encourage you to drop a line if you haven’t heard back in x amount of weeks) […]

A Writers Family Reunion

So I wrote a post a while back but didn’t post it. To be honest, it was too depressing. Maybe I’ll post it later, but for now I’ll just sit and be wishy-washy. While I decide, here’s another post that isn’t such a downer. Updates: We’re in our house! Mostly unpacked too! Yay! I’ve also […]

Well. Here we go.

I told myself I was going to wait to start working on a new WIP until I had a house. With that said, I guess I’m still not technically starting a new MS. I’m just brainstorming, and probably experimenting with a few scenes to see which project to try, but that’s still more than what […]

My “Rejection Box” is going to make me gain 10 lbs, I swear.

This is a combo post. Yep. You’re getting both the “Rejection Box” post and “I’ve started querying!”.  Sadly, those two are already connected. Let’s get started, shall we? Let the Querying Begin! More accurately, I started this weekend. I got my first rejection in less than two days. I then ate chocolate, sat down, and […]

Don’t hit the “Panic Button”

Mini-rant Ahead: So this is fun. Look at my blog and all the ugly images Photobucket replaced my gifs with. *Sigh* I updated the last entry so there are none, and I’ll figure it out later for the rest of my posts. Photobucket won’t even let me know what gifs I was using so I can’t […]

Marching On

Hi people. Sorry it’s been a while, but update time. I really do mean to post more regularly enough, but, well, life. That, and my writing comes first and this blog second. Anyways, here’s what’s up. I’ll keep this short. Conferences: It’s Conference season! Am I going to any? For a variety of reasons, probably […]

I’m ahead!

It’s a miracle! Some how I have flown through 2nd draft edits, and I have ONE CHAPTER LEFT. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? I’d given myself three months to get these revisions done and somehow it looks like I’m going to do it all in two. I’m in shock. Happy shock, but shock none the less. […]

My 2-3 Months “Break”

Update on the New Shiny Hopefully by the end of tonight I will have finished my werewolf story. All I have is the closing scene to write, so not much at all.  Once it’s done, I’m taking a couple months break to get some distance from it before taking a second look. 1. Short Story […]

Getting Back My “Groove”

I should be working on the new shiny right now, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted. So, new blog post it is. I do enjoy posting here, I just get busy/forget. Aw well. Here’s what I’ve been up to: Distractions Let it be known that Korean dramas are the most addicting thing ever, […]
