Hey guys, I know I've been /super/ neglectful of late, but I plan to get back to my weekly blog come October (fresh month, fresh start!). This long weekend I'll be on my first ever writing retreat with Lauren Rose (who, incidentally, is making a brand new site and it is gonna look so rad) and a … Continue reading My first writing retreat!
Hey guys, I figured it was well and truly time for a catch up, so grab a coffee with me. So the last few months have been kind of hectic. I hit 90k words and finished the first draft of my current MS, which is super exciting. I also attended the Salisbury Writers' Festival which … Continue reading Coffee time
Hey guys, just wanted to check in. After my victory last week, I've been feeling a little flat. I've polished off a short story draft this week and I've tried to rest; despite this, I feel super flat and unmotivated for the Salisbury Writers' Festival this weekend. I think I pushed too hard, and just … Continue reading Feeling a little flat
Hey guys, I wasn't going to write today, but figured I would give a little update. I spent today resting because I hit 90k words on my current draft and finished the first draft of it! Yeah, this is a pretty common thing amongst writers- but this is my fourth attempt rewriting this particular piece over the … Continue reading Achievement Unlocked!
It's been a while since I did a post, my bad! First things first: I smashed my camp nano goal. My draft is currently at 83k words, and has 2 and a half chapters left until completion, which is super exciting! Because my draft is almost done and I want a break to work on … Continue reading Bookstagram
"I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings"- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. During the confusion of my week, I didn't realise I hadn't written a post! So, I'm going to recommend some books! I'm currently reading Shadowsong, book two in a duology by S. Jae-Jones, and I gotta … Continue reading Bittersweet Books
I'm meant to be working on Camp Nanowrimo right now, but I can't. I gave myself a deadline for this WIP, and I just can't do it right now. You know what though? That's OK. This is just a reminder that you don't need to push yourself, or rush yourself, or make yourself feel bad. … Continue reading A reminder
Hey guys! Sunday marks the beginning of Camp Nano July 2018, and hopefully the last 40% of this draft. I should have had it done ages ago but sadly, mental health has a way of, well, getting in the way. During this time though I'll be also practicing pitching my novel, heavily editing and critiquing … Continue reading Camp Nano July 2018
So my mini hiatus ended up being almost two months long, which was...well, a lot more than I intended. Sadly, a lot has happened during this time and it's knocked me off my feet quite badly. I lost my best friend, big fat Rini, in early May. She'd been my companion for nearly five years … Continue reading Off break- now what?
Do you love cyborgs? How about Keto recipes? What about women who can curse like a sailor and write like the know danger intimately? This week's blog may be for you. So for this week's blog, I'm going to post some info on Jenna Moreci's upcoming release (due April 24th!) The Savior's Champion. Jenna is one … Continue reading The Savior’s Champion Release
