Know the Novel – Part One: Introduction (2022)

Know the Novel – Part One: Introduction (2022)

After a two-month hiatus, I figured a link-up introducing my latest writing project would be a good way to ease back into blogging. I get a relatively easy post to start with and y’all get an introduction to what I’ve been working on during my long silence. So first off, thank you to Christine Smith for hosting the Know the Novel link-up, and with that… let’s get started!

Calligraphy Guild Credits

Calligraphy Guild Credits

Movies have credits and books have acknowledgments, but today I want to take an extra opportunity to mention all of the people who made Calligraphy Guild possible.

Beyond the basics, what is the best order to take things in? Those are questions that are going to be unique to each writer (and potentially each world), so I can’t give you a concrete answer, but in this post I’ll show you a few of the processes I use for my own worlds.

January 2021 Wrap-Up

Writing

I’ve edited 29 chapters of Calligraphy Guild this month! Which is to say approximately a draft and a half. I’m well on-course to complete my self-edits by the end of February, which will free me up to send it to sensitivity readers and betas shortly! (If you’re interested in Continue reading “January 2021 Wrap-Up”
