Friday Write-Day: Camp NaNoWriMo Returns!

As I talked about last week, it’s back to the grindstone for me in the wake of WoEM’s  pre-order release.

I’d like to make some headway on my second novel, The Warden of Everfeld: Legacy, and I just happen to have the perfect opportunity to do so: Camp NaNoWriMo 2018! Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Camp NaNoWriMo Returns!

My weeks have really been flying by, and I still can’t figure out why. The stress at work has eased off a bit, so that’s good. Reading through my manuscript has gone more slowly than I wanted, but I’ve made solid progress.

Friday Write-Day: The Next Phase Begins

Welp, I forgot to upload my title card. I blame my goofy counterpart, Jessie, with whom I video chatted last night for 5 and a half hours…

Clearly we had a lot to talk about after a busy month+ for both of us.

Curse our intriguing and impassioned conversations/arguments!

Friday Write-Day: Preparing for the Next Step

This week’s ‘tween-holiday lull has been a welcome break for me. It’s allowed me to really focus on preparing for the next steps — in writing, at work, and in life.

Consider this my pre-New Year planning post. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Preparing for the Next Step
