(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: 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.

Happy to Report: The name game

Writing Status Update: 

When you write an entire book without your two main characters having a name.... 

Oh yes, I just did that. FYI... books been written. Scenes all filled in. I DID THE DAMN THING.
Now, to come up with some names.

Typed | Second Chances

Sometimes we lose people just to find them again. Sometimes the second time just makes more sense. Honestly, that timing in life has a lot to do with everything. Sometimes, you just aren't ready for each other yet, and that's okay. Now you are. Make it magical, make it amazing, and appreciate every moment. ~ Erin Rose

Typed | Crank Out Now

 It’s a word I’ve heard a million times before but it never held meaning until Him. Words.
Words I had written about him before. Those.
Those have always had meaning, but nothing like the ones I am about to crank out now.

Typed | Was It Worth It?

“Was it worth it?” He asked, the ice clinking against his glass.
She paused a moment before replying “Was what worth it?”
“Opening that door again.” His voice rasped as he took another sip. “Having that door opened knowing that any moment Pandora’s Box was going to bring you to your knees.” ~ Erin Rose

Happy To Report: Word Update

I'm currently holding at 14,145 words. Still not done but I've hit that wall of not knowing where to go/where I should go with a few scenes...SOOOOOOOOO .. it's time for me to walk away for a bit and hand it over to my editor to work her magic. 

So thankful for this woman who has been at my side for 13 years. She knows my voice. She knows my style. She knows how I write. And she knows what to do when I get stuck.... cheers to breaking the 4-year publishing block. Cheers to breaking through some massive writer's block while I'm at it.

Typed | Just Let Me Be Sad

“Just let me be sad,” she told him. “Just let me process and then I’ll be okay. Can’t you just let me do that?” She crossed the room and stared blankly out the window as the raindrops pelted against the pane. ~ Erin Rose
