Finding me

Holy cow! Two post in one week! Something must be wrong lol. Well this post will have nothing to do with writing as hopefully more of my posts will expand broader horizons. So I’m sure many of you have all heard the reference to our elderly when we say they are stuck in their ways,…

How far I’ll go!

I’m not quite sure what’s going on with me and the Disney quotes! I’m a part of another blog with a group of writers and my last post was filled with them, almost like this ones title. Alright guys, so I’ve been at it now for seven months with Kaneji. I constantly get overwhelmed and…

Prayers answered!

I swear it never fails, when ever I post about a problem, like not being able to write, a very short time afterwards inspiration strikes my soul. I’m very happy to admit I just completed my first origin short story that takes place in the same universe as Kaneji. It doesnt follow the main character,…

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,…

Not everyone has your interests at heart

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…
