NaNoWriMo Week 2 Check-In

NaNoWriMo Week 2 Check-In

Current total word count: 23,248 (hoping to get up to 23,500 this evening)

Favorite snippet from this week:

DuyĂȘn stepped onto the porch as a peal of thunder rolled in the distance. She looked up at the dark clouds gathering over the jungle and frowned. The sunset was coming faster than usual.

NaNoWriMo Week 1 Check-In

NaNoWriMo Week 1 Check-In

I was fully intending to keep up my normal blog schedule this month, since I knew what I was going to write for the first two weeks and I could brainstorm further topics later, but… I then just didn’t get around to actually writing my first post. And since I’m really getting focused on my writing (which hasn’t happened in a long time, so I’m really happy!), I think that’s likely to be the case for the rest of this month. So I’ll be taking a hiatus for November, except NaNoWriMo updates, and hopefully I’ll be able to arrange a working balance of tasks as the month goes on and I learn to write consistently again, lol.

Anyway, every Thursday I’ll plan to put up a NaNoWriMo update (and tomorrow I have a bonus, because Continue reading “NaNoWriMo Week 1 Check-In”

Blog Schedule Change

As I’m trying to get back into things after a summer hiatus, and also going into a new school year that’s more time-intensive than previous years have been, and trying to give more time to actual story drafting, I’m finding it difficult to keep up with my current blog schedule and produce new content and that kind of thing, so I’ve decided to cut wayyyy back on my blogging schedule and make only one post per week.

Here’s the new schedule:

First and third Tuesdays will be writing tips

Second Tuesdays will be character interviews

Fourth Tuesdays will (hopefully) be book reviews

It’s going to be very different, lol, but I’m hoping it’ll work better and I’m hoping that fewer posts will also mean better posts as I’m able to put more time into them. I’m sorry for the missed posts and hectic craziness lately. Hopefully things will settle into a rhythm again with this new schedule, at least aside from Preptober Prompts in October. (This is not an official announcement. There will be an official announcement in the beginning/middle of next month, once I have the co-hosts finalized. ;) )

Anyway… that’s the latest news. I hope this change results in my better ability to serve y’all with more helpful content, more consistent (if less frequent) content, etc. :)

Farewell to February

Farewell to February

February’s Failed Goals

Let’s get the bad out of the way up front. I intended this month to publish both This Is His Story and The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles. Obviously neither happened, one of which wasn’t really my fault, and I’m sorry. I still intend to publish The Mirror-Hunter Chronicles, but I have to, um, finish them first. I’m working on story 4/6, but it’s going a little bit slowly. After #3 I didn’t have a whole lot of concrete ideas, so now it’s a lot more making it up as I go, which is fun but a little slower. (I’ve definitely fallen out of my place in the pantser camp that I so adamantly remained in until last year.)

In smaller goals, I also Continue reading “Farewell to February”

A Quick Blog Update

A Quick Blog Update

So there are a few new things happening lately. Obviously I changed my blog theme a week ago, and I’ve been working since at updating all of my post images to match that new theme (I’m getting close to finished with that). I really like the new theme, I think it fits a lot better and looks a lot nicer, and apparently it’s bringing in a lot of new traffic from Pinterest. Thank you Pinterest and everyone who’s reading my blog.
