I'm nearing the end of Camp Nanowrimo and last night I ended up writing the most in one day that I have all month (a whopping 1,300 words), and once again my main character ended up giving himself stitches (this also happens in Hitchhikers). For some reason I feel the need to break my characters … Continue reading I am not very nice to my characters
After a bit of a rough couple of weeks, I am finally back on track to complete 20,000 words by the end of the month. I had figured 20K would be so easy, not even half of a regular Nanowrimo, but surprisingly it hasn't been the free ride I was expecting. A bit part of … Continue reading Camp Nano & other progress
I finally did it. I finally completed the first draft of Dreamwalkers!! It's a pretty big accomplishment for me. Not only is it the first novel I've completed outside of Nanowrimo since Hitchhikers (3 years ago!) but it is also the first sequel I've ever completed. You'll find the Dreamwalkers page now under Novels instead … Continue reading a big sigh of relief!
The time of Camp Nanowrimo is upon us again. I wasn't planning on attending, but then again, my 2014 goal of writing 500 words a day hasn't exactly panned out, and of course now that I'm nearing completion on Dreamwalkers, my mind is having slutty new ideas. Such as a Wolf Point prequel novella called … Continue reading to camp or not to camp?
A quarterly update on my progress: to finish and publish Dreamwalkers to finalize the print edition of Hitchhikers and offer a giveaway or two (if goal #1 happens) to finish and publish Scavengers and to possibly finish some of my other works-in-progress, including Blood Countess and another new WIP that I haven’t even added to the site yet! be able to … Continue reading goals & progress
*sigh* I figured I'd update my word count over on the Dreamwalkers page, just to keep track of how well I'm doing on my resolution of writing 500 words a day. Unfortunately, this forces me to acknowledge that I've only written 1,679 words this year when I should be up around 6,000. I managed to … Continue reading goals and not meeting them
This year's resolution is to write 500 words a day - that's 1/3 of what I normally churn out a day during Nanowrimo, which makes it much more attainable. I have several other writing-related goals for 2014: to finish and publish Dreamwalkers to finalize the print edition of Hitchhikers and offer a giveaway or two … Continue reading new year’s resolution and 2013 stats
My two companions novels, Bethany Caleb and The Art Kids, will both be available for free this weekend, July 13-14! (Of course, these are both always free for Amazon Prime members). Also available are the print editions of both books. So the long holiday weekend totally decimated my word count, but I am still writing … Continue reading freebie weekend, and hello from camp!
So I'm off to camp again. Last year was not a very successful venture, although I did get several thousand words written in Dreamwalkers. Since I've been having some difficulty getting myself writing as of late, I figured this is something I might need. Plus, I am going to offer this as part of the … Continue reading Camp Nanowrimo, here I come! (again…)
In self-publishing news... My very first novel, Bethany Caleb, is now available! So is The Art Kids! It's ridiculously easy to publish a book on Kindle. Too easy. Have I made a mistake? Are there typos? Probably... It's a scary thing to send your creations out there. While in the privacy of my own home … Continue reading in other news…
