I feel like I’ve made multiple posts on both of these subjects before. Hm. I have, actually, thought the playlsit one is old (you can find it over here) but it bears repeating in this case. In my last post, I talked about struggling with writer’s block…

Breaking My Writer's Block

My last blog post, posted on Friday, featured an excerpt from the new project Fabian and I are working on. I really, really enjoyed writing the final scene, which is the part I posted, and sharing it got me so pumped to write more. Yey! That’s exactly…

In my first post this year I mentioned that Fabian and I are working on a new project, as we feel our first manuscript may not be the best story to lead with. Creating a series for our fantasy world is our ultimate goal, but we’re also aware that a series…

Do you kick yourself for writing fluff scenes? #writing #writerslife

“You’re on a crusade to carve up our babies.” -Fabian Every good writer does it. Those wonderful scenes we love so much, that we think give depth to characters and their relationships and stories, end up scattered on the floor. We hack them from our…

New post up! Been a while, but I'm back. #blog #writing

Holy carp, I did that disappearing thing again. I hadn’t meant to, but did anyway. Truth be told, I just didn’t have much to update with. Writing stagnated around the holidays, and I wound up just letting the manuscripts sit for a little bit. I did other…

What Went Wrong During PitMad? Fire, that's what. And adverbs. #amwriting #MondayBlogs

I was going to participate, wasn’t I? But I didn’t. I didn’t get a single tweet out. Something held me back from setting up those scheduled tweets and I think it amounted to an internal voice saying, “You’re not quite ready. Don’t waste their time and…

Going Mad for #PitMad, live on my blog! I'm getting anxious already. #amwriting #writerslife

Does anyone else get super anxious over Twitter pitch parties? Because I do. I’m not entirely sure I like them for that very reason. I put a lot of effort into them, but I think I get a little too stressed over something that works only rarely, it seems.…

The Holiday Homestretch-- AKA the end of NaNoWriMo. #writerslife #NaNoWriMo #holidays

Well, NaNoWriMo has come and gone. Goodbye, November! And while we have a few more weeks of fall left, no one really cares. Once December hits, it’s winter all the way! And I’m totally hopping on that bandwagon, obviously. I truly wish I lived somewhere…

Finished the cover for my serial, Silk & Swords and I love it!

So, I’ve been working hard on Silk & Swords for NaNoWriMo– bein’ a bit of a NaNoRebel this year, I guess. I’ve turned into an editing fiend; it’s been just about nonstop, really. This isn’t seeing an editor, so I have to rely on myself here. I’m also…

Blog post: A Mid-NaNoWriMo Coffee Break! Seeing a lot of Bon Jovi gifs lately. #halfwaythere #writerslife

Alright, so it’s a coffee break if coffee breaks are like… a week long. And it’s really not so much of a break as it is a little NaNoRebelliousness. But it’s day 15, that midpoint for NaNoWriMo, and I haven’t written much that’s new. The story I started…
