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. I’m still writing that unnamed paranormal romance novel–it’s currently at ~10k words. I’m pretty surprised how fast… Read More

Dragon WIP Revisions Underway!
Hey guys! So, I wasn’t planning on beginning revisions for this Dragon WIP yet, but I couldn’t help myself, lol. I was reading Clash of Kings to distract myself but only made it 60% through before I got the itch to write again. While my WIP doesn’t have much in common with GRR Martin’s Song… Read More
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

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
Hi everybody! It’s been a slow week for me on the writing front, but I finally managed to finish The Truth of Winter (my Persephone retelling short story) at just under 9k words. I’m very happy how it turned out and am planning to give it to a few friends for some feedback before searching… Read More
Hey all, it’s been a slow few weeks for me but rest assured my projects are coming along, slowly but surely. The Truth of Winter (my Persephone retelling short story) is sitting at just under 5k words. I’d estimate at least another 3-5k before it is finished. I haven’t worked on it in a few… Read More
