Can’t catch a break!

Goodness I hadn’t realized it had been so long since an update! My apologies. I swear just as soon as I get the hang of one thing something else comes and throws a wrench in my plans causing me to go all out of whack! My work schedule has completely been flopped on its head,…

Enjoy the story you have to tell

So for those of you who can’t tell, my posts are quite often long tweets Haha they aren’t formatted in any professional way. Though this may bother some people, to me it feels like if I go through fixing things to make them sound more professional it runs the authenticity of it being my true…

Not everyone has your interests at heart

Last time I made a post it was talking about all the stuff I still had to d ok along with calling for beta readers. As most writer know, having betas can be a crucial point in a writers craft as they can often describe what is missing from the manuscript. As writers we tend…

A sense of accomplishment!

I finished my self edits and transferred them to the laptop (for some odd reason I like to do paper edits so I can see the red on the paper). But I feel so liberated! The second version of Kaneji was far worse than the first I feel like I added more depth, story, and…

Editing sucks!

I swear I hate self edits! They make me question myself more than I already do and it’s a pain in my ass. Not to mention when I do self edits I like to print it out on paper and feel it as I’m doing it. Problem with that is that I still need to…

Completed

The first round of revisions are done and let me tell you boy it was like pulling teeth! I added roughly another 20k words to my manuscript, I fought and argued with my characters about who was the boss(they won), and I almost quit altogether, but it is done. Now dont get me wrong, I’m…

Updates for the week

So I haven’t been able to write all week due to my work schedule and me being dog tired by the time I get home all I do is shower and sleep. So this week had been nothing but working and sleeping and it’s been exhausting. But luckily I am at the end of this…

Things change from time to time

If you all remember, earlier this week I explained how I was getting a lot of writing done and how I would finally finish the end of my book Kaneji. Well needless to say that didn’t happen, but not because of what you might think. This whole time I’ve been doing the rewrite of Kaneji…

So excited!

This is going to be a short post… But I just want to say how flipping happy and excited I am that I have LESS THAN 8K words until the end of version 2 of Kaneji. *everyone applaud and throw flowers* Ok maybe not that part until I finish that last chunk. But this week…

Progress!

I believe I have discovered my writing and marketing schedule, and I can definitely say I am beyond relieved. I get so overwhelmed and annoyed so fast I’m ready to back myself into a corner and pull out my hair, but when I just take a step back I realize that you just have to…
