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, […]

My Book Boyfriend is Back (well, one of them is)

Let’s start out with some fun stuff . . . What I’m Reading: Fire Touched (#9 of the Mercy Thompson Series) By: Patricia Briggs (I will read anything this woman writes. Her, and Ilona Andrews.) I got sidetracked last week from reading this. Lesson learned, don’t try to read books on your Kindle only when […]

Sanderson’s Class

So I got into Sanderson’s class/workshop this year. YAY! The fifteen of us have been divided in to three separate critique groups. I’ve been to two classes so far and it’s been great. Although, I got a nice reminder to check my ego at the door. I think I’m pretty good about not being too defensive with […]

Words are Weird

I’m in the middle of some of the tedious edits. As in, I comb through my document looking for ‘there’s to delete, and after looking at about the 150th ‘there’ it starts to look and sound weird in my head. It also happened with ‘since’ and about another half-dozen words. I don’t mind these types […]

Getting the Stupid Voice Right

Writing third person is hard. I struggle with it every time. Normally, I find writing in first person a lot easier. But I need to get better at writing in other view points, so this story is kind of a warm up before I jump into my second novel (which is also 3rd person pov). […]

Next Steps into the New Year

Hello, internet. Long time, no see. I’m going to get back in the swing of things now that my Little is almost 3 months old. So, here are the plans for the new year: 1.) New Book Baby: I’m starting my werewolf book in January. I’m actually very excited about it. I’ve been editing my […]

The End is in Sight!

The End! So Close! So, great news. I’m almost done with my revisions.  I’m just this close. Each week I estimate what I can get done and aim for that. If my estimation is right, I should finish the first week of September. Worst case scenario is I finish the second week. Actually, the worst […]
