Un-NaNo-It’s in the Chemistry, ...

Un-NaNo-It’s in the Chemistry, Baby!

Grinding along here. Yesterday was one of those EXCELLENT writing days. Not only did a reader on Twitter tell me she was a big fan and couldn’t wait for my books, but I cleared 3059 words. And it wasn’t the number that made the day great, it was the content. This book took an exciting romantic […]

Back to the Grind

Back to the Grind

I only wrote 3599 words over the holiday. (Thought I had serious word count during wrestling tournament and I did–which shows I didn’t do a lot the rest of the weekend. LOL) I’m not too busted up about it because my family and I needed the break and we had a great time. The hubby […]

Feeling Good

Feeling Good

I had a wonderful holiday. Lots of family, good food and tons of laughter. The hubby is home for three days and he has big ideas for filling the hours with decorating. Gotta love his enthusiasm. 😉 So, I will be pretty busy with my family but I’ll be writing when I can. Believe me, […]

Un-NaNo- Kicking Butt

Un-NaNo- Kicking Butt

Kicked butt yesterday with 3500 words. I still have handwritten scenes and notes to add, but am considering making that a part of the rewrites. I’m actually excited about the rewrites for this book because I have a lot of worldbuilding flavor to add. So, my total word count should be a bit higher for this […]

Un-NaNo-It’s About the Story No...

Un-NaNo-It’s About the Story Now

I have NO idea what my WIP’s current word count is–none. And better yet, I don’t care. LOL! I have handwritten pages to type in and I sketched setting and world-building scenes that have to be incorporated. I’m sure I passed the halfway point, but honestly, I’m not so worried about the word count right now. […]

We Interrupt This Program

We Interrupt This Program

For a MUCH NEEDED plot break. Out of nowhere, HE joined the party. A new, extremely intriguing character who changed everything. This was Tuesday and I was all kinds of excited. Then today, I hit a wall. Thought I’d veered too far off course. My critique partner called, got me to spill the problem and got […]

Un-NaNo-Busy, Busy, Busy!

Un-NaNo-Busy, Busy, Busy!

Another quick post due to incredible difficulties all day with family stuff. I’ve been entirely too busy this week. But I’m still cranking out the words. I wanted to report yesterday’s word count which was 2134. Not too shabby. Unfortunately, a lot of that was handwritten, so the only writing time I’ve had today was […]

Short Un-NaNo Break for… Puppy!

Short Un-NaNo Break for… Puppy!

I noticed I posted the wrong word totals in my quick Friday post. I’m actually over 20k in the book now. The last three days were really busy and I didn’t have time to write, but I’m cool with it because I loved spending time with family and friends. I’ll return tomorrow with what I […]

Un-NaNo-Survived Friday

Un-NaNo-Survived Friday

Quick post because I’m taking off for the weekend. Having lunch with friends, dinner with friends and Monday, I’m spending the day with my Dad and my daughter. So… I will be trying to squeeze words in as much as possible. Probably Saturday night and Friday morning. But I made my goal today. Yay! Also […]

Un-NaNo-It’s Friday. Show Me Lo...

Un-NaNo-It’s Friday. Show Me Love

Yes, another insidious Friday has crept into my life. Most are so happy on this day, thanking various deities and getting ready for two days of debauchery or maybe, just some sleep. Writers on submission still have these feelings, but they are slightly damp… or in some cases, they’re soaked and dripping all over the […]
