Hello again everyone! This month I slowly chipped away at my supernatural romance, hitting 25.8k today. I only have a few more chapters left, but I am fairly certain I will be adding several chapters to draft 2. I considered going back and adding them now, but I wanted to try this method to keep… Read More
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
July was another slow month, but things are moving along. I’m preparing a query package for One With Dragons, though I still haven’t decided if I will submit Godstones to a few publishers who do not require agents before sending OWD queries. DUAT is waiting for our lead editor to recover from wrist surgery, but… Read More
Last month was pretty slow, but I finished DUAT, which is now in the edits folder and already undergone a few changes. While it is over the original desired word count by a few hundred, the anthology’s chief editor is allowing it due to several people withdrawing! I likely could cut enough to make it… Read More
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
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! If you’re wondering how beta reading works, basically it’s looking for any plot or character improvements. You’d be surprised how often a plot hole is staring a writer in the face, but it… Read More
Writing Update: Dragon WIP Draft 2 Complete!
Hi everyone! I’m excited to say that yesterday evening I finished revisions for draft 2 of my Dragon WIP. This draft ended up just under 100k words thanks to two new chapters and some additional exposition. So, what’s next? I’m moving on to edits! 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
