April has begun and its hard to believe that Spring is on its way. One of the things I always look forward to in April is Camp NaNoWriMo and I am once again participating. I am super excited to be starting a fresh novel this year for Camp. This is especially exciting because this was […]Read More It’s Camp Time!
I was introduced to NaNoWriMo in 2011. For those of you who don’t know what that is, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It takes place each November and is a challenge to write a 50k novel within a month. The project I choose for this very first NaNoWriMo was “Lightning“. It was based on […]Read More Returning to an Old Novel
It has been a while since I’ve been here so bare with me as I dust off my Blog. I thought while I was dusting this thing off, I’d give you an update on where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to! My Blog tells me that I haven’t visited since April of 2017, […]Read More Updates
I’m going to take a few minutes from carefully crafting wonderfully composed sentences into a wonderfully thought out and exciting novel for Camp NaNoWriMo to compose my answer to the WriYe Blogging Circle Question. I’m not sure if I’ve talked about this already on my blog but for the heck of it, I’m answering it […]Read More Prologue

I have officially finished my first novel of the year! I’m just talking first drafts complete here, unfortunately I still haven’t gotten the editing done that desperately needs my attention. The novel is called “Undefined” and is probably the most unromantic Romance that has ever been written! (I literally wondered at one point if there […]Read More First Novel of the Year
January was quite a successful writing month I’m happy to report! After barely writing for an embarrassing year and a half I managed to surpass my humble goal of 20k and wrote 72k! What a way to get back into writing! I’ve been working on three novels, which is now four as I’m doing the […]Read More Genre
Or lack thereof… I have been having a wonderful writing month. With the help of the Challenges on the Wriye Forum coupled with the encouragement of so many fine writers, I’ve managed to write 60k already this month. This is an amazing feat given how few words I feel like I’ve been writing for […]Read More Motivation
Another year has started and another Wriye with its wealth of challenges is underway! I must say that I was incredibly excited this year to participate in Wriye as last year was so much fail that its not even worth mentioning. Not only was I looking forward to accomplishing my writing goals, but I was […]Read More First Week in the Books
Hello 2017! Another year hath gone by and a new year of WriYe has come around. My attempt at WriYe 2016 was dismal to say the least but I’m back in the saddle and stronger than ever!
