I considered going back and adding them now, but I wanted to try this method to keep… Read More
Hello, everybody! I made good progress last month in my supernatural romance story. I previously referred to it as paranormal romance, but i realized that it is supernatural because it involves demons.

Sorry I’m late this month! I went on vacation and yesterday was the first day of school, so I didn’t have time to write a post. Honestly, though, there’s not a lot to report for the last month.

Hello again everybody! It seems like this last month went by so slow… Well, at least to me. But that is most likely because of how much trouble I had getting words on the page. As you may recall, I had hoped to wrap up my WIP by the end of September. Sadly, I did… Read More

Hey, everyone! Today marks the beginning of a new month, which means it’s time for my monthly word count update. I am happy to report that I hit my overall word count goal of 50k on July 29th with this dialogue that made me laugh as I was writing it (between my main character, Aelenna,… Read More
Hey all! Yesterday marked the halfway point of July, so I just wanted to share my word count statistics with you. My word count at the end of June was 18.5k. As of last night, my total word count is 35.4k. That means I’ve managed to add almost 17k from July 1st to July 15th… Read More
Hello again! I don’t have a lot to update you on, except to say that I broke 30k total words today 😁. I’m proud because so far, I’ve managed to stick to my goal of averaging 1k a day, but I’m also terrified because I haven’t outlined enough to reach a minimum of 90k when… Read More
