Day 3

Word count: somewhere in the 2,000’s Hey Reader:) Sorry, this is going to be a quick post, but I’m slammed with school work today. Just to update: I’ve gotten a better handle on how I’m going to be writing the rest of my novel after all of the planning yesterday and am starting to put this into action. Tomorrow I’m…

Day 2

Word Count: 1,185 Hey Reader, Yesterday was a bad writing day. It’s the same thing that happened last year, and I’m beginning to wonder if this is going to be a key thing in my NaNoWriMo process.

Day 1

Word Count: 0 Hey Reader, OMG. NANOWRIMO IS HERE. AHHHHH!!!!! Okay, sorry. I had to get my excitement out before I could start this post. I’m so prepared for this… maybe not as prepared as last year, considering I’m starting from scratch, but I’ve still done my fair share of planning. Last year I rewrote a story I already had…

New book? (announcements)

Hey Readers, Since it’s going to be a while before Holding My Breath comes out (publishing process; no release date yet) I’d like to go ahead and mention that there is another story coming out before it. In fact, this new novella will be coming pretty soon. More will be released about 60 Days of Salt and Sand on my…

Writers and Writing Communities

Hey Reader, I’m always excited when I’ve found a new person who is doing something for other in relation to writing. It’s always great to find YouTube channels of authors who are posting videos with advice on writing, or bloggers who are gathering tools for others to use with their writing. That said, I’m going to share some of the…
