I achieved the coveted 50K word count on Monday night, with only 48 words to spare... yikes. My novel is not complete but I feel like it needs quite a bit more editing to get it to a coherent enough place to figure out an ending, therefore The Mist that Falls at Night is now … Continue reading 11th consecutive nanowrimo win!
I neglected to post here about my Nanowrimo novel for this year... Lately I've found the Mandela Effect rather fascinating, and I wanted to write something that would incorporate it somehow. Yet without a firm idea, I instead decide to create a creep-tastic cover that might inspire me. I scrolled through the sample covers on … Continue reading nanowrimo 2016 progress update
It's been a long time since my last post... Amazingly, I've been writing more than ever. The caveat? It's been 98% fanfiction. *sigh* During Nanowrimo I attempted to get a start on a 4th book in the Wolf Point series - WIP Title: Fighters, from Misty's POV - but the call to fanfic was too … Continue reading update

The Beast is the origin story of Geo, the oldest known werewolf. This is the first of … Continue reading forgot to mention…
That's right, folks. I won Nanowrimo, this time a scant half hour before Janina! I finished on November 28th and while I made it past the 50,000 word finish line, I've still got a little work to do to actually finish the story. And surprisingly, I still WANT to finish the story! I mentioned before … Continue reading 8th consecutive Nanowrimo win!
I haven't posted in a while, mostly due to Halloween costume crunch time (pics coming soon! I promise!), and most recently because of Nanowrimo. But I want to share what I'm doing for Nanowrimo, because it's slightly different than what I've done in past years. This year, one of my favorite blogs, Forever Young Adult, … Continue reading my Nanowrimo cover story
Crossed the finish line last night! And the story is "complete" - there was no skipping to the end and writing an epilogue. Well, a lot of the last couple of chapters is telling not showing, but I have high hopes for this one and I'm looking forward to editing. I even kept writing after … Continue reading I win!!
Word Count: Above Par (34,484/33,333) Janina is less than 5,000 words away from finishing. I am consoling myself with the fact that I am keeping my head above water. I am having a little too much fun with my deadly circus. Since all the characters are dead, they can die over and over again in … Continue reading Nanowrimo Update: Week 2.5
Word Count: slightly ahead of target Janina's word count prowess has her in the lead, but we'll see if she has the longevity! I have already hit one point where I wasn't sure where the hell my story was going and even contemplated scrapping what I had so far (roughly 5-8,000 words at that point) … Continue reading Nanowrimo 2012: Week 1 Update
So I'm already thinking about November and Nanowrimo... already stressing about when I'll have enough time to write! My first week in November is pretty much booked up and that makes me nervous because it's usually in the first week that I get the momentum to carry me through the rest of the month. I … Continue reading the countdown begins
