May 2022 Update

It’s been… a month. I was sick for three weeks of April with allergies turned sinus infection with a dash of migraines and weather-induced joint pain, so I didn’t really get much done in those three weeks (or this first week of May for that matter). However, I did...

April 2022 Update

Writing: March was a very productive month for me! If you remember last month, at the end of February, I decided to buckle down on my book by pulling back on social media and my non-writing streams, and it has certainly started to pay off! I had some up weeks and some...

March 2022 Update

I’m really pleased with how February went. Last week was, by far, my best week, but I made really steady progress on BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL, and managed to finish one of my most difficult chapters to edit so far (which was my primary goal for the month, so,...

February 2022 Update

(Belated update, as it seems I forgot to post this last month!) January was a bit of a roller-coaster, with several good writing days and a lot of bad ones. I also caught COVID, which wasn’t horrible. I actually wrote the most on my WIP the week I was sick. Go figure....

January 2022 Update

Writing: I took last month off from writing, which was a much-needed break after wrapping up rewrites on Part 1 of BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL in November. I did write up a monthly post and yearly wrap up, but that’s it. Having a full month off from writing gave me...

2021 Year End Update

Another weird year comes to a close. Writing has been just as difficult in 2021 as it was in 2020, for much of the same reasons, plus a few more. Thankfully, I was able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 early in the year (and then the booster) and kiddo got a second...

December 2021 Update

Writing: I finished Part 1 of BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL this month! After one round of intense rewrites and two rounds of edits over the course of several months, I managed to reduce the original word count of the first eight chapters and two prologues from 61,541...

November 2021 Update

I didn’t get to make as much progress on rewrites this month as I wanted as I was sick for the last two weeks. But progress is progress, so I won’t complain. I did run into a bit of a snag on one particular scene that I’m still trying to figure out, but I should get...

October 2021 Update

Writing: I’m really proud of the progress I made on BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL in September. I finished rewriting Chapters 4-6, finishing up Part 1 of the rewrite. I then printed out those pages and have been going over them again to try to improve them further,...

September 2021 Update

Writing: I didn’t do a lot of work on BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL in August, between kiddo being out of school and husband on vacation (and the endless hours of video games we all played together), but I did finish revising a scene that’s been the most difficult to...
