Goodbye 2022!

Hello, welcome to the blog! 2022 is coming to a close. It has been a year of growth and change. Some goals set in my personal and writing life may not be completed this year though I am proud of what was achieved.  I officially started this blog in December 2021 but didn’t post regularlyContinue reading “Goodbye 2022!”

November Round-Up

Hello and welcome to the Blog Roundup! This month had some challenging chapters to edit. I didn’t realize I was coming up to the chapter where I needed a box of tissues. As of writing this post, I have not finished the chapter. It’s a ‘Kill your darlings’ kind of chapter. One that needs to beContinue reading “November Round-Up”

October Round-Up

This month went by fast. Most manuscript progress came toward the end of the month. Unlike the past two months, I met my minimum goal of six chapters being edited/rewritten. Building a readership/followers on Medium and Simily has been more challenging than first realized. I get more views here on my blog than I doContinue reading “October Round-Up”

September Round-Up

This month has come and gone. Not many of my main projects were touched this month, but a folder of a handwritten manuscript is now digital. It will need a lot of work when the time comes. I made notes for myself so unless I completely change my mind, I should be good. The beginningContinue reading “September Round-Up”

August Round-Up

Welcome to the Blog Round-Up! This month went by quicker than anticipated. I stretched myself a bit thin on the different projects I was working on. My time management was not the best, I admit. This month, the publication I submitted two articles on Medium closed up overnight. I do not know the whole story.Continue reading “August Round-Up”

July Round-Up

Welcome to the Blog Round-Up. This month focused on my first Camp NaNoWriMo. I finished the challenge on the 25th. It was the first time I have ever written 50k words in a month. During the challenge, I developed a schedule for myself. I would get the daily word count done within 2-4 hours. ItContinue reading “July Round-Up”

Second Week of Camp NaNoWriMo

This week was productive. I had the highest word count day of the challenge and hit over 25k total. Toward the end of this week, I was skipping around in the manuscript a bit. I try not to do this because this is how I accidentally make plot holes. The chapter I skipped over isContinue reading “Second Week of Camp NaNoWriMo”

First Week of Camp NaNoWriMo

This was my first time participating in Camp NaNoWriMo. When I decided to do this 50k writing challenge, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to hit the minimum word count per day. I usually don’t set word count goals. For my WIP, I set a monthly chapter goal. For other writing projects like blogContinue reading “First Week of Camp NaNoWriMo”

June Round-Up

Welcome to the Blog Round-Up! This was a month of noticeable progress on several writing endeavors. Though, it wasn’t smooth sailing. As mentioned in my round-up post in May, Medium is not the best place for fiction traffic. My newest chapter of Enemies but Lovers had no traffic. Simily, on the other hand, it hasContinue reading “June Round-Up”

May Round-Up

Welcome to the Blog Roundup! May was a bit of a motivation rollercoaster. Some days were better than others. I still reached my personal goals for the month so that is a plus. This month I was accepted into a publication on Medium called The Coffee Times. Stay on Track Writing Tips was my firstContinue reading “May Round-Up”
