Back This Week

Hi guys, I have to apologize for dropping off the internet last week. I overdid it the week before when I was finishing up Witch Hunt and managed to mess up my shoulder pretty badly. Resting it over the weekend didn’t help enough, so I forced myself to take a break from the computer in […]

Bootcamp Check-In: End of April, Starting May

So I haven’t been writing as much as I wanted to in the past week, and this Camp NaNo thing just never got off the ground. I’ve managed a few short stories but barely cleared 10K words. I’ll have to try again in July. I’m still moving forward with the Fae of Calaveras trilogy. Witch Hunt (book […]

Bootcamp Check-In: Still Revising

This past week, I’ve done a little bit of writing on short stories, but my main focus has still been on last tweaks for revision. There’s always more work to do than I think there is going to be. I wish I was writing more, but I know that I’m not going to come out […]

Catching Up with Camp NaNo

Okay, quick check in for bootcamp! To summarize my previous week: Finished scene revisions for book 2! A few more tweaks and I’ll send it to my editor. Started Camp NaNo late, so I adjusted my word count goal down to 25K. Half the goal for half the time. Finished one short story for Camp […]
