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…
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 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
#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
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?
Continuing down the #NaNoWriMo path and why I keep on chugging along #amwriting
Well, it's day 5 of NaNo, and I find myself in an awkward moment. I sprinted this morning, have about 45 minutes to get ready for work and I finished chapter 2, so I really don't want to sprint again even though I could. I've been behind in NaNo word counts since day one...when I … Continue reading Continuing down the #NaNoWriMo path and why I keep on chugging along #amwriting
Break time is OVER! #amwriting #update
Hey all! I know! It's been forever! These past few months I've been in and out of the house, gone for weeks at a time. It's been hard to keep up with stuff. That and not feeling well (more about that later in a separate post) doesn't make productivity high. So, since I've been gone, … Continue reading Break time is OVER! #amwriting #update
Excitement of Creation #ROW80 and #WIPpetWednesday
Good morning! As I mentioned when I first posted these goals that they were the goals through April at least. It looks like they're going to last until about halfway through May too, so I'll keep them up until they need to change. 1. Write 3k words a day on Lost & Forsaken until finished. … Continue reading Excitement of Creation #ROW80 and #WIPpetWednesday
trying to keep up #ROW80
Well...I'm back!!! I've got a lot going on in general, but it always seems to pile up. This week the SO was home for 4 days straight, which seriously cramped my style in writing a bit. Yesterday I drove about an hour to meet another awesome writer whom I've connected with online, and it felt … Continue reading trying to keep up #ROW80
A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing
Well, it has been a long time since I've been on this blog. I unintentionally gave up blogging for Lent it seems. Go figure. I ran into one of the busiest few months of my life, even busier than wedding planning and moving across country and starting a new job. I'm not sure I thought … Continue reading A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing
On Fire!!! #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
Well, it's Wednesday. That means I get to post a ROW80 update and a WIPpet update. I woke up this morning with a killer sore throat. I guess I'm not as over this cold thing as I thought I was. February has started, and February at my day job is INSANE! Not because it's the … Continue reading On Fire!!! #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
#ROW80 update — Almost done!
Hello all! My in laws are in town this weekend, so I'm going to make it quick. I have been writing! If I stick with my plan, I'll finish this piece on Feb 8th or around then, which is just before I leave for a whole week to go to a conference. So here's my … Continue reading #ROW80 update — Almost done!
Goals for the first round of the year! #ROW80
Well, it's the start of a new round, meaning I have to make some goals up. I certainly should have been thinking about this a lot sooner than just last night and this morning. So I guess that means my goals are likely to change. 1. write 1667 words a day I really liked this … Continue reading Goals for the first round of the year! #ROW80
Decisions…decisions #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
I'm struggling with decisions today. I don't know which WIPpet to share with you all. I have two going right now in the writing life, and two going right now in the editing life. And my NaNoWriMo project is supposed to be super secret, so I'm not sure I want to share from it. While … Continue reading Decisions…decisions #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
The real thing… #ROW80
Good morning all! It's early, and it's Sunday, and it's daylight savings over here in the US and oh my is it earlier than I wanted it to be. I have some great news! I started writing a new novel last week based on something I would never ever write or really want to write, … Continue reading The real thing… #ROW80
