Happy to Report | Things are Coming Along

 As my brain tries to wrap around the last few big edits before handing the Cambrie and Dylan international love tale over to the beta reading editors  - I've re-read the story I abandoned to crank out that one. 


Pretty sure it's turned itself into a polyamory tale without even trying. I think Scarlett and Hunter will appreciate more prey. 

Happy to Report | 2nd Writing Status Update for 2021

Writing Status Update: I can officially say all the he/she pronouns have been changed to the character's name where necessary. 

I do not ever recommend writing a novella without having character names in place first. 

I'm still flip-flopping over the title and there are a couple of places I want to do some rewriting. But that annoying task is over at least.

Happy to Report : First Writing Update for 2021

Currently staring at the draft thinking about how I need to finish changing the pronouns to their actual names since those have been decided. 

What am I doing instead? 

Wondering if I'm actually good enough to continue.

(not so) Happy to Report | Final Writing Update for 2020

 



Saw this little gem on Tumblr and it really got me thinking. 

I’m feeling this very much right now. There’s one big finish just have to trade out the names and do a few minor final edits. But, why am I dragging my ass so much on it? Not sure. Another book has huge chunks written and just needs to have some spaces filled. Finishing these would be monumental but yet, I can’t seem to do it. We won’t even discuss the 100′s of partially finished drafts sitting on my hard drive begging me every day to open them and write.

Does. It. Ever. End.

Happy to Report : 5012 Words





Writing Status Update: In case you missed the memo, the project I've been working on has been put on hold for the month of November. And, this new project is now sitting at 5,012 words. And just like that... day one is complete. 29 more to go.


Happy to Report: It's NaNoWriMo Time!

Every November since 2009 I have participated in NaNoWriMo... 

Some projects I finish. 

Some get shelved. None of them have been published, except this one. 

Four years ago. It was the last book I published. The other 2 parts in the trilogy sit there, pestering me. Daily. This book changed me somehow and gave me the longest-running writer's block in years. 

Until a few months back when I started a new writing project that I cranked out in record time. Today, I shelve that project to start something I've been knocking around since last fall. The outline has been written. The bits and pieces I have jotted down for the last year are being placed within the outline today. 

November, I already hate you, but the challenge has been accepted. Let's see if I can finish this project. And who knows, maybe I'll actually publish 2 books instead of one in the next few months. We shall see.

Happy to Report: A New Update



Writing Status Update: Meh. That is all.


But seriously. I'm just here, trying to get the name swapped out and the next thing I know, I am rewriting whole chapters. Cause, fuck you that's why. 😂🤣 Chapter 5 almost done. 5 more to go. 

NaNoWriMo starts in 3 days so this project will be shelved for the month of November so I can work on something else. Unless, I quit. Which, at this rate, is very well possible.

Happy to Report: Writing Update

Writing Status Update: It's been a hot minute since there's been any new news on the latest book. I'll be honest, I haven't felt much like dealing with it recently. 

And now the realization has set in that it's almost Nov. 1 which means NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. So I need to hustle and get these changes made in this book so that I can bust my ass in November for the umpteenth year in a row and crank out thousands and thousands of words in 30 days. 

Also, the book still has no title and soon I'll be putting a call out for beta readers, so at least there's that to look forward to.

Happy to Report: .. more changes

Writing Status Update: 

When you still aren't settled with the main character's names, have a breakdown about unrelated things, have a 2.5hr phone call, and have a name breakthrough...

I am now 1/3 of the way through the name & pronoun changes.
