New Year’s Book Tag

I did this book tag last year, and I thought I'd do it again since it was fun. Hope you enjoy it! How many books are you planning to read in 2023? Thirty-five! I already have two down. I usually read between thirty-seven to forty books a year, not including books I edit and beta … Continue reading New Year’s Book Tag

NaNoWriMo update ——— #3

Time for a NaNoWriMo update! The last one too! November has just flown by. Everything is still going well for NaNoWriMo. I've written a lot for my rewritten chapters and for the trilogy. I have found that I like writing the trilogy together since I can sneak in parallels and connect it well. That way, … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update ——— #3

NaNoWriMo update ——— #2

Time for a NaNoWriMo update! For the most part, everything has been about the same. I've gotten a lot of words out by switching it up. If I don't feel inspiration for one project, I flip over to the next. I guess there is a perk to working on multiple projects at once. I still … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update ——— #2

NaNoWriMo update ——— #1

Time for a NaNoWriMo update! I've had a good start so far! I'm already almost 40% through my goal for the month. The theme for this NaNoWriMo is what a fellow writer suggested to me: chaos. I will write some words, and they will be everywhere. I've been writing a new trilogy. I mentioned it … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update ——— #1

(If you don't know what that is, here's a link to an explanation. It’s probably the writing community’s most productive time of the year.) This is your reminder … Continue reading A friendly NaNoWriMo reminder

A writer’s journey (part ten) – getting an editor’s feedback

It has been a while since I've done a writer's journey. Last time, I spoke about getting accepted in a journal and building my credentials. I’ve continued to do so over the past year. I made a goal last January to submit pieces on Submittable two times a month. Now, I've gotten two more accepted … Continue reading A writer’s journey (part ten) – getting an editor’s feedback

Last push!

Today's the last push for NaNoWriMo! If you've already made it, congrats! Hitting 50,000 words is a huge deal. I hope you celebrate that accomplishment. If you're close, I believe in you! You can push those words out and reach the mark today. Even if something comes up, you'll find the time to push all … Continue reading Last push!

NaNoWriMo update —— #3

Time for another NaNoWriMo update! My story—Free—is going a lot better than it did a week ago. The first few days were rough since I didn’t know what to write. But a couple of days ago, I had a breakthrough with the plot. It seemed a little out of nowhere, but it helped build a … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update —— #3

What I hope for out of NaNoWriMo

In eighth grade, my creative writing teacher introduced me to NaNoWriMo. I was thirteen at the time. NaNo was a way to express myself and to let some of the stories out of my head.  Did I do well? Nope! If I remember right, I didn’t even make it halfway. I didn’t do NaNo the … Continue reading What I hope for out of NaNoWriMo
