Monthly Update

Today marks the first day of May, and with a fast-approaching deadline for my Egyptian myth retelling, that means it’s time to buckle down and get things done! This story has been trying to drag me down, stumping me more than once with a bout of writer’s block, but I’ve made decent progress (currently at… Read More

Monthly Update

Hey everybody! This month has been fairly uneventful, except that I have started a new short story for a myth retelling anthology. I was going to submit The Truth of Winter, but since I already submitted it to another anthology (who I haven’t heard back from yet), I decided it would be prudent (and fun)… Read More

Dragon WIP off to Betas!

Hello, everyone! I’m excited to share that my Dragon WIP is finally being sent off to the first round of beta readers!

Hi everyone! I’m excited to say that yesterday evening I finished revisions for draft 2 of my Dragon WIP.

During this process, I mostly check grammar and sentence structure, but… 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

Dragon WIP Draft 1 Complete!

Yesterday, I wrapped up my first draft of my Dragon WIP at just over 90k words. That’s right, I’ve finally finished it! After a quick run through spellcheck and Grammarly, I am letting this draft sit for a little while before I begin the second draft. I’m not sure how long I will let it… Read More

Monthly Update

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

Writing Update

Hello, everyone! Today marks the middle of the month, and while I haven’t made as much progress as I hoped, I still have managed to break 60k overall words. As I predicted, this month has been slow going, and then I also went on a last-minute camping trip with the family. I’m a little stressed… Read More
