My Next Big Step

Hi there! Well, today is officially my deadline. I’m happy to report I succeeded, and handed in a complete 61,000 word manuscript (the former WIP – now referred to as the Sky novel) to an editor. Yep. An editor. That’s what I’d like to talk about today. I follow a lot of author blogs, and […]

WIP Update

Wow. Organization can rock. I spent several hours last night… Okay, actually I was forced to (thanks to a printing error) to do some editing. But I had a full-draft hard copy printed, that I just won’t be able to pick up for a few days. Err… I’m still VERY bothered by this. Anyways. Not […]

Quick Check-in

Okay, so my ass has been dragging. The solution? A public call-to-arms, obviously. Novel #2 and current WIP has a firm deadline: November 1. OMFG. And so, I will now post weekly check ins with the word counts and current struggles/challenges. Hopefully this will reignite my blogging passion, but working on more posters of the […]

In the shower, in the kitchen, in the car.

… Music, duh. Does music fuel your day? Ask my roommates, and they’ll confirm music is pretty much a constant in my day. While I get ready, in the shower, in the kitchen, while driving, headphones in while walking.. The tunes are always on. They change a lot too; obviously the right song for getting […]
