Taking a social media break is good for life in general and writing especially. (Bonuses: I’ve been using my scrolly time to actually read blogs and been able to think through my social media priorities.) It’s been especially helpful for Camp NaNoWriMo. 😀 Getting sick for several days and losing a couple for Avengers: Endgame … More Things This Month Taught Me
Guys, a thing happened. A shiny thing. 😀 Today I’m going to show you the AMAZING cover for “The Night Archers”!!!! But before I do, I just want to tell you… This has been a long journey. I had a lot of doubts about the story, a lot of roadblocks both emotionally and logistically, and … More A Shiny Thing!!! (A.K.A. Cover Reveal)
I saw Avengers: Endgame last night. It was amazing. I’m not sharing any spoilers. But it was really amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better movie. It’s the only movie I’ve seen so far that has had me in full-on Embarrassing Cheerleader Mom Mode, screaming, literally howling, and clapping in the theater. It was … More The Avengers Book Tag
Today’s writing session was particularly fun, since my character got to put her storytelling skills to work. It was basically a story within a letter within a story. Which is almost as confusing as it sounds. XD As things ramp up in my story, I’m at that funny stage where I have to hold back … More The Story Within the Story
I wrote more on my story today, and I just got to begin the midpoint. 😀 It’s been a ton of fun developing the friendship between the penpals, but I also have something of a plot to move along. (Remember the plot, Kate? This is proof you shouldn’t take writing breaks.) This means I get … More Halfway and Chapter Titles
I hope you all had a blessed celebratory weekend! I certainly did. 😉 I wrote on my Camp NaNoWriMo story again today for the first time in nearly a week. My head cold has been quite discouraging/debilitating in the area, but I seem to be on the mend. 😀 Let’s see if I can catch … More Time to Catch Up!
Getting in a good wordcount is dangerously easy right now. XD My characters are being hilarious and discussing really interesting things, so their letters tend to be long. *hopes it doesn’t get too long* One of their favorite discussions seem to be about accents. Which got me thinking, if you could learn any accent, what … More Letters and Accents
I wrote not a word today, but I did check in with my beta-readers, read the rest of a very interesting book, hung out with siblings, and cleaned the house some. 😉 More words tomorrow, right? 😀 Here’s an excerpt of last week’s writing, just for fun. 😉 Glancing around the room like an introverted … More A Li’l Excerpt
(For the sake of not skipping March’s update, I’m slipping this in here on the weekend since the weekdays are filled up with Camp NaNoWriMo currently. 😉 ) March just marched away, and here we are in April. 😉 March was a nice month with some wonderful spring weather for a few seconds there. 😉 … More Plate Update: Mysteries, Dragons, and Lightning
I missed updating y’all on yesterday’s writing time, but it was mostly uneventful, and I got in a good number of words. I got to sit around and write with my siblings which was extra fun. 😉 Although, have you ever tried to eat popcorn and type at the same time? It’s awkward holding it … More I’m Ahead!!!
