Sometimes you just gotta take a writing break to pet a cute puppy 🙂 How's everyone else's project going out there? Happy Writing!
Sometimes you just can't get inspired to write... So that's when you grab some coffee in a mug with motivational words like this sweet gift from a co-worker. And then you go back to writing about kick-butt heroines who need to punch in some monster faces with the help of their dragon friends. Seriously--that's what … Continue reading Quick Writing Update
Finally back from holiday hiatus! Woops! I took a bit more time off than I'd originally planned due to some personal and work related stuff... But I'm back now and ready to post 🙂 You might notice some slight changes to this blog in the upcoming months. Weekly book reviews will return, but they'll likely … Continue reading And I’m Back!
It's been a long time since I've posted any sort of writing update. Between work, family, and travel, the summer has been pretty busy. During the last couple months, I took a break from querying Stranger than Starlight, though I plan to renew my efforts this fall. I'm also considering submitting for Pitch Wars--a great … Continue reading Character Sketch
Long time no see! It's been about a month since my last writing update. Even though I haven't actually accomplished a whole lot of writing in that time, there's still plenty for me to be excited about 🙂 From the depths of the query trenches... My big goal over the last month was to begin … Continue reading Writing Update: Continued Journeys through the Query Trenches
Yikes! It's been a while since I've posted a writing update (back in November...). To be honest, I haven't gotten a lot of actual "writing" done since my last update, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. What have I been up to? Back in November, I threw out a call looking for beta … Continue reading Leaping into the Query Trenches (Again…)
So, hows everyone else doing with their NaNoWriMo goals?? It's getting toward the end of November, so I figured I'm about due for an update. Project #1: Finishing my monster portal fantasy Sigh... I didn't even get a chance to look at this one yet in November. It's probably going on a back burner until … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Update
It's November once again and that means NaNoWriMo--the month when writers buckle down and attempt to write a novel (or 50,000 words) in thirty days. Some writers have been planning for weeks for this event. Last year, I was one of those writers. I had a plan and a plot outline to keep me on … Continue reading NaNoWriMo is Back in Town!
Yikes, it's been a little while since my last writing update, but it's also been a particularly busy summer. Work, travel, house updates...it seems like there's not a whole lot of time for writing. On our recent trip to Madison, I was lucky enough to fit in some writing time at Michelangelo's Coffee House on … Continue reading Coffee in Madison (and mini writing update!)
The summer is drawing to a close, but I feel like there's never enough of it. There's always one more book I could have read, one more chapter written, another art project started, or another mile to run. But all that being said, I feel like I made the most of our recent trip to … Continue reading Writing on Mackinac Island
