Revising Day!

Hello, all! In this busy time of trying to balance school and life and blogging and stories, I’ve missed out on my revising time for a couple weeks now. Today I decided to take a snow day and work on my novel “Kiera”. 😉 I asked God last night if He would help that work … More Revising Day!

Story Switch

So… I finished the first draft of “Legend” last week!!! 😀 It came out around 14k words (just slightly longer than The Twin Arrows), but I anticipate that changing since I have a few scenes to cut and a couple others to extend.

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

Second Draft Crazies

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

The #Voices of YA Tag

Zane from Simple Impossibilities (a super awesome blog) did this blog tag the other day and left it open for anyone to consider themselves tagged. 😉 It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these, so I decided to pick it up. Thanks, Zane! (Caitlin Lambert originally created this tag here.) Rules Thank the person … More The #Voices of YA Tag
