Wow... It's been a little while since I've done a writing update, so I might be a bit overdue (I'm pretty sure my last one was posted in June... oops). But you know how that goes. Life gets busy with things like work and family, and writing gets shoved off to the side. October isn't … Continue reading Writing Update- Hitting the Query Trenches
I had so many goals for this year- reading more (I've been eating books), visiting more art galleries (yep), and being more physically fit (still training for my half-marathon in June!).

Instead, it was my hope to use the month of November to polish up a previous NaNo project, Hidden, in preparation for querying. In October, I had some great help from some beta readers including the amazing … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Editing in a Nutshell
It is November once again and that means time for National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write 50,000 words, the length of a short novel, in one month. It sounds kind of crazy. And to be honest, it is pretty crazy, but it's also an amazing experience. I have … Continue reading NaNoWriMo!
