Happy winter! While I don't have specific word or chapter count goals, I am making goals for writing in 2020. I have already marked in my planner that I will be writing just about every Monday this year. Beyond that, my other goals are below. Keep writing! I can do this at work during downtime, … Continue reading Writing Goals for 2020
During the month of November I won NaNoWriMo with my Coming Home manuscript. I'd taken time away from the Stalker series in order to do that challenge so, at the end of November, I had two unfinished manuscripts. Winning NaNoWriMo does not mean finishing a book. It just means you wrote at least 50,000 words … Continue reading Finished a Manuscript!
I won NaNoWriMo. So did my sister. It's a whole lot of work. I'm not even kidding. That, on top of work and family, along with all the other things that need to get done, keeps a person mighty busy. And somewhat stressed. But a certain amount of stress is supposed to be good for … Continue reading Winning at NaNoWriMo
I never used to take notes when writing a story but let me tell you, it's easier to not do so when your writing a short story than when you are writing a novella or a novel. At least, for me. When just writing short stories, I would wing it. If the story were part … Continue reading Plotter Vs. Pantser
Oh, so many things. Haha. Are you surprised? Because so much went wrong last month when I wanted to be putting my books on Kobo, Lulu, and Barnes & Noble, I haven't even gotten to adding any yet. So now I'm planning out where to start, how often to add, and in what order. (Any … Continue reading And Now I Am Working On…

My biggest priority for January is getting Seeing Things out to you. This story is part five … Continue reading My Current Projects
With my 2018 goals accomplished, it's time to move on to a new year with new goals. The previous year went by so quickly, but I did manage to meet all of my fiction goals. I'm thankful for that. I've been working on setting up my planner to help me to accomplish my 2019 goals, … Continue reading 2019 Fiction Goals
I already updated you on my progress with the 2018 goals I set, and how I did with my theme word for the year. It's worth mentioning that I accomplished more with my writing than what's in those posts. I wrote three novellas this year, and I am note-taking for a fourth. These stories are … Continue reading I Accomplished More in 2018
Last year I wrote a series of four novella's. Some of you may remember me mentioning this on social media. It took a long time to write that series; so many hours went into it I lost track. I'd sit at Aroma Joe's and write for a few hours two or three times many weeks to get the books written.
