nanowrimo 2016 progress update

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

hi-ho it’s off to camp i go

This year Camp Nanowrimo is already making me do great things.  I finished the rough draft of Scavengers (YAY! You can even see that it's moved from my Works in Progress to Novels!) because I needed it to be finished before I started camp. I had a whole 2 days to spare, and I decided to use them … Continue reading hi-ho it’s off to camp i go

goals & progress

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

So the long holiday weekend totally decimated my word count, but I am still writing … Continue reading freebie weekend, and hello from camp!

Nanowrimo Update: Week 2.5

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

I’m not sure, but…

...is one hour of writing in the middle of a 3-hour "American Horror Story" marathon good? Still working on Dreamwalkers, and I wrote about 1,000 words.  Janina was on a roll so I had to keep writing (instead of immediately turning on the next episode, my remote control finger was getting itchy) a little past … Continue reading I’m not sure, but…
