So, this happened… 😉 I reached my Camp NaNoWriMo goal AND finished the second draft of “Kiera” today! ❤ Thanking the Lord for the oomph to do it and some encouraging fellow writers. 😉 Here’s a short excerpt. Kiera is Skyping her older brother when Jade decides to join in. 😉 “How are you doing?” … More Draft Two, Done!
A little over a year ago, I wrote a blog post called “What’s On My Plate?” Basically it contained a picture of me with a dinner plate piled high with all the books, projects, and notebooks begging for my attention. I’m was grinning kind of wryly and preparing to “dig in” with a huge knife and … More Plate Update: Packages, British Accents, and My WIP
I did Camp NaNoWriMo again this month! My goal was to accomplish 10,000 words of revisions to my WIP “Kiera”. Between releasing The Twin Arrows, celebrating Independence Day, and selling books at the homeschool convention, I only wrote fourteen days this month; but I’m happy to say I made my goal! 😀 It’s been really … More Second Draft Crazies
April was a whirlwind! Is it really over already? Here’s a quick update on what I did last month.

As of last Tuesday–I won Camp NaNoWriMo!!! *happy dance* I made my goal of revising 10k words in one month. 😉 This is a big milestone for me since I’m very bad at getting … More Camp NaNoWriMo Update #4
“The Twin Arrows” is progressing nicely, and I’ve gotten to make the arrows themselves play a major part in the story! *rubs hands together* But that would be spoilers, so… I’m so happy to have my word goal back on track with only 1,975 words left to go! (And we’ll see how it is after I … More Camp NaNoWriMo Update #3
“The Twin Arrows” didn’t get much attention last week, but that doesn’t mean I’ve given up on my goal. I’m only a thousand words behind, and that’s nothing a long writing session and a little chocolate can’t fix, right? 😛 (I have exactly five caramels and two Rolos, FYI.) The “distractions” of last week have … More Camp NaNoWriMo Update #2
I had plans to focus on editing “The Twin Arrows” this month anyway; so when the option of Camp NaNoWriMo presented itself, it didn’t take too much arm-twisting-author-peer-pressure to get me to join. 😉 I created a camper profile, proclaimed a word goal of 10k revising “The Twin Arrows”, made a cover mock-up just for … More Camp NaNoWriMo Update #1
