Second Draft is DONE! Thank you writing retreat!

So iWriteNetWork had their second writing retreat this past weekend and I got to reconnect with some of my talented writer friends while there. I did get a lot done while there, but it wasn’t as productive as last time for me. The problem? I didn’t mentally prepare like last time. I’ve learned that you […]

Writing Prompt #?? : The fire was getting closer + Mini Update

Mini Update: This summer was an experiment when it came to what I could do with my writing. I pushed myself with critique groups, edits, plotting, learning more about grammar (that I’m quickly forgetting. I’ll need to skim read them as a refresher) and in general pushing what I thought I could do. It was […]

The Waaaay Overdue Boot Camp Post

I’ll try and keep this simple, mostly because it’s hard to convey everything I learned and walked away with from Boot Camp. I’m also in the middle of moving, editing, and trying to get to my new shiny, so I really don’t have much time to dive into this as much as I’d like. In […]

Writing Prompt #15: “She had to find the necklace, before . . .”

I apologize in advance. It looks like my comments on everyone’s will have to be put off another week until I get home. I’m at a writing boot camp this week and I’m going to be swamped until it’s over. But I promise, as soon as I’m able, I will be doing some serious catching […]

Boot Camp Eve

*Deep breath* Well, tonight’s the night before ‘Uncle Orson’s Writing Class & Literary Boot Camp’! I’m both excited and nervous. I did the writing class last year, so I at least know what to expect out of that, but it’s the boot camp that I’m anxious for. I know during that time that I’ll be […]

I swear I’ll be commenting today though!  Anyways, here’s today’s and then I’ll go back to stressing.
