Well, people, I'm nearly there. Just a few more words to go and then I will be a three-time consecutive NaNo winner. This year, NaNo has really pushed me and in all the best ways. I got a start on the actual book 2 of Tamerna. I'm over 100 pages in and nearly 25k words. … Continue reading NaNo 2018 Week 4
Whew! Another late update, but at least it's only Friday. Ha! I started this on Wednesday, but clearly never finished. That's how NaNo goes sometimes. I'm now just over 35k, which means I have just UNDER 15k to go to win and the days just keep screaming by. Over this past week, I've managed to … Continue reading NaNo Week 3
Well! I'm happy to say that week 1 has been phenomenally successful for me, although I haven't gotten as far on one of my stories as I'd hoped and I've worked on NOTHING as far as the others. I'm over 13,000 words overall and at 7 days in, that's great. I'm above pace to finish, … Continue reading NaNo 2018 Week 1

I joined a critique group! There are five of us in the group with novels in various stages of completion and … Continue reading Catching up and looking forward

Pretty cool. This last week went pretty well until I hit a major editing wall … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: 4 Week Update (Final one!)
Another week has passed! And I am behind. I had a few days this past week where I wasn't able to do much writing at all because of, you know, life happening. I fell to 4,011 words down over the weekend and have been slogging to try to make those words up. My goal for … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: 2 Week Update
Hey Everybody! One week of NaNoWriMo is over already! I've been disciplining myself to write every day, and as of yesterday, I am entirely caught up with the recommended word count in order to win NaNo, which if you don't remember, is achieving 50,000 words. I tipped over 11,000 words yesterday and these are some … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: 1 week update
It's here. National Novel Writing Month and I've been saving writing this post until this morning so that I can, in fact, use these words toward my NaNo goal. For those who don't know, what IS NaNoWriMo? At its basic core, it's a writing challenge - write 50k words during the month of November. Yes, … Continue reading Happy NaNoWriMo!!
