One Very Successful Week

Two Weeks Ago I took off a week of work to focus on getting edits done on the first draft of my MS. In the back of my mind leading up to it I was afraid I’d get little done, because, well, I’d been struggling with churning out faster edits. The long, boring explanation is I […]

Science Fiction, I Forgot How Awesome You Are

Sci-fi Rocks For the past week I’ve been addicted to a new series called “The Dred Chronicles“. The next book is out in August (yay for good timing!). It’s a romantic sci-fi trilogy and a spin off from the Sirantha Jax series (unless she writes more. Please write more). What’s funny is I’ve had the […]

Mini Update: Obsessions & Some Progress

I actually had a blog post all written up and ready to go . . . and failed to post it. *sigh* Now it’s out of date and deleted. Oh well. Lesson learned. Write the dang thing and hit publish. This will be quick today, simply because I want to publish something. It’s been long […]

Mini Update: Struggling

So, I’m struggling getting writing done. Still. And reading. I haven’t read a full book in over a month. I think GoodReads tells me I’m over 7 books behind. Nope–I just checked. It’s 8 books. EIGHT. Which means I’m going to have to cheat and read a ton of short stories and novellas in any […]

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 […]
