I'm late today! It's been an awful couple of days and anticipated coming week for me. Super stressful. I haven't even written the last two days; it's been that bad. Anyway, I have started a new book, titled Stone's Mistake. It may or may not turn into a series. Today I'm cutting to the chase. … Continue reading A late #WIPpet but a WIPpet
A bittersweet turn #WIPpetWednesday #WIP #AmWriting
We're back to it! This may be the fastest I have ever written, but De-Termination is rapidly coming to an end for me. I have three chapters left to write today and the novel is done. I'm already at 101,000 words, which I've written in less than three weeks. But alas, today is WIPpet Wednesday, … Continue reading A bittersweet turn #WIPpetWednesday #WIP #AmWriting
There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma
I'm currently writing a novel that has a lot of trauma for one of my main characters happening within it, not only that, but it is very clear she has experienced similar trauma before. There's something peculiar about trauma for sure. Trauma changes us. It changes the way we think and the way we behave. … Continue reading There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma
A Mission and a Risk #WIPpetWednesday
And here we are at ANOTHER WIPpet Wednesday. So excited to be here. =P I'm sharing from a book titled De-Termination, which is the second Quarter Life book. I published Unbound in 2015! That seems like so flipping long ago, it's hard to imagine. I didn't realize it had been that long. This book has … Continue reading A Mission and a Risk #WIPpetWednesday
Be kind, Rewind! #writingtip
A few years ago, my spouse was starting a new job with a new manager and this said manager kept getting frustrated with my spouse. You see, my spouse has a couple common phrases that he says ALL the time and one of those phrases is "Sure, sure." So every time this manager would ask … Continue reading Be kind, Rewind! #writingtip
A small excerpt for a #WIPpetWednesday
I asked on Facebook this week if anyone was even participating in WIPpet anymore. I have no idea. Those who I knew who were doing it, aren't anymore. But I miss it so much. I thought I'd share a little from what I have been writing this whole month. This is from Learning Love which … Continue reading A small excerpt for a #WIPpetWednesday
Long time no type…?
It has been a long time since I have truly ventured into the world of writing and publishing. I wanted to be sure in my last foray into it that I was going to stick with it. I'm glad to say it's been about a month now of me writing consistently, well mostly. I had … Continue reading Long time no type…?
I may be back…I may disappear again…
As my children finally get a little older and as I finally work through some of the trauma from the birth of my second, I am FINALLY getting back into writing a tad bit. It's been a whirlwind for the past four years of trying to just keep up with basics and function. In November … Continue reading I may be back…I may disappear again…
Running with the #WIPpet #WIPpetWednesday
It's been 4 weeks since I posted. oooops! my bad! I haven't done any writing this past month, which saddens me. I need to get back on the boat and I'm hoping posting a WIPpet will help. The blog I was running for reviews has shut down officially, so I should have more time to … Continue reading Running with the #WIPpet #WIPpetWednesday
Writing has never felt so good! #ROW80 #amwriting #ROW80Update
My goodness I've actually written! It feels so good, you have no idea. Monday I spent a lot of Spider-Man's nap time writing, and as soon as my spouse got home from work, I pounded on the keys as long as I could. That was at least until my wrist started hurting. Gotta start exercising … Continue reading Writing has never felt so good! #ROW80 #amwriting #ROW80Update
Decisions, Decisions, will they come back to haunt us? #WIPpetWednesday #WIPpet #AmWriting
I'm excited to say that I've actually spent quite a bit of time writing this week. I feel like I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. On Monday I wrote close to 5,000 words, so I guess that helps makes up for my ROW80 goals that I've missed. I need to write about … Continue reading Decisions, Decisions, will they come back to haunt us? #WIPpetWednesday #WIPpet #AmWriting
Progress is Progress #ROW80 #AmWriting #Mourn #KansasBeatitude
I feel like I can add the tag #amwriting this week because I did actually do some writing, even if it wasn't a lot. I managed 1700 words on Thursday before I headed off to work, and while I'd had intentions to write on Friday and Saturday, it just didn't happen. I spent Sunday afternoon … Continue reading Progress is Progress #ROW80 #AmWriting #Mourn #KansasBeatitude
A time to sleep & a time to write #ROW80
I love how as soon as I start sleeping again because the baby starts sleeping again, he immediately stops. It's been about three days straight of no sleep at night, and while last night was better, it's not been great at all. I've also had a lot of pressure and stresses going on at work … Continue reading A time to sleep & a time to write #ROW80
A new work in progress #Mourn #KansasBeatitude #WIPpet
It's been a while since I've done WIPpet. It's also been a while since I've written and posted on this blog. I'm attempting to get back on track with this writing stuff and back into the habit of writing everyday. I've joined up with ROW80 this round in an attempted to basically write one short … Continue reading A new work in progress #Mourn #KansasBeatitude #WIPpet
Update 1 on Mourn #KansasBeautitude #ROW80 #amwriting
I ended up writing 2500 words on Thursday and then not writing again. haha! But 2500 words is something, and I have to keep telling myself that. I would love to average 2500 words a day again like I was doing, but maybe I need to work up to that instead of just assuming writing … Continue reading Update 1 on Mourn #KansasBeautitude #ROW80 #amwriting
#ROW80 Round 3 but Round 1 for me! #amwriting #KansasBeatitude
It's been a long time since I've written. Sleep deprivation is a real thing, yo. My baby, this past week, has finally decided to sleep through the night (again). He took about 6 weeks off of sleeping through the night. I'm hoping this sticks for him because I really miss writing and spending time in … Continue reading #ROW80 Round 3 but Round 1 for me! #amwriting #KansasBeatitude
Back for some WIPpet Wednesday #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting
Oh if only I remember clearly how to do this and where the links are and everything! It has been so long since I've been apart of WIPpet, and I sorely miss it. I've decided to post from this scifi tentacle thing I started writing the other day. I've only made it 2000 words into it. … Continue reading Back for some WIPpet Wednesday #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting
Long Time No See! #writing #releases #ohMY!
Whew, it's been a long time since I've been around here. It's completely my fault, but I've had a lot going on in my life. For starters, I had a baby. And you know what? Sleep deprivation is REAL! I haven't been doing a lot of writing either because of said sleep deprivation. My mind … Continue reading Long Time No See! #writing #releases #ohMY!
*cracks whip* WIPetty WIPetty WIPetty #WIPpetWednesday
Good morning!! I'm back for a second week in a row. That's like a record or something. I did finish NaNo on the 14th. And since my in-laws canceled Thanksgiving with us, I now have the opportunity to finish writing the book this month. 3.5 chapters and an epilogue left to go. w00t! then I … Continue reading *cracks whip* WIPetty WIPetty WIPetty #WIPpetWednesday
Pssst did someone say #WIPpetWednesday?
Hey all. I know, I know. I haven't been around. But I'm working on that. I have at least been writing, this month. I haven't been writing much in general. This pregnancy thing really threw me for an unexpected loop. Anyway. I am writing. I'm writing something totally and completely new. It's called OBlique. It's … Continue reading Pssst did someone say #WIPpetWednesday?
