July Update

Writing: Writing went pretty well this month, considering I spent the first week on doctors appointments and prepping for an event for a non-profit organization I volunteer for (not the one I run). I have a busy life. I’m proud of what I managed to write in the three...

June Update

Writing: May was not the month for writing, apparently. I scheduled myself to teach weekly writing classes, and also come up with all the material beforehand, last month, and as such, I spent more time prepping class material than I did writing fiction (as you will...

May Update

April was a fairly productive month. I managed to write nearly every weekday despite a lotof distractions and made good progress on BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL. I’m a few chapters away from the midpoint now, and I’m getting a little bogged down in the minutiae, but...

April Update

March was a weird month for writing. I wrote nearly every day up until Spring Break, and with kiddo home and lots of plans to keep her busy, I didn’t have time to write. And then after Spring Break, I had a bajillion things to catch up on between Patreon and my...

March Update

February was probably the most insane month of my life. Outside of writing, I launched Ozark Book Authority, a non-profit literary event programming organization with the goal to raise funds for literacy initiatives in Northwest Arkansas. We’re officially incorporated...

February Update

January has simultaneously been the longest month of my life and a whirlwind of not having enough time to do what I need to do. I managed to plot BLOOD OF SALT, TEARS OF PEARL, my “The Little Mermaid” meets “The Beauty and the Beast” in...

A Change of Plans

I’ve been thinking over my plans for 2019. Originally, I planned to finish Draft 4 of REBEL ENGINEER by the end of December so I could start the new year fresh with a different project, but December came and went and I didn’t finish the book by the time winter break...

January Update

December was a relatively lax month for me. NaNoWriMo left me with burnout (I am really not equipped to write every single day), and I had a hard time bringing myself to work on anything, even though I had wanted to finish REBEL ENGINEER by the time winter break...

2018: Year in Review

Today is the winter solstice! Earlier, me and my family went scrounging for a Yule log in the woods to burn tonight and celebrate the return of the sun and longer days ahead—something new we’re going to add into our winter festivities going forward—and later we’ll...

December Update

Here we are at the end of the year, at last. November went well for me, though I, once again, did not win NaNoWriMo (and did not expect to). I made good progress on Draft 4 of REBEL ENGINEER, and I managed to write every single day of the month, which was difficult,...
