I’ve been blogging nearly everyday over at my blogspot account because I’m participating in #photoadayApril But not a whole lot about writing. However, it has come to my attention, I’ve sorely neglected to update my posts here! I’ve been good at checking comments (sucky spam is all I have to say on that!) but forgetting to post. Where am I? Hmmm Well, I’ve finished 2nd round edit’s on The Ulfric’s Mate and am waiting for the next round. I’ve turned in first round edits on Barely There for the Ravaged anthology, I’m trying to finish up a novella that’s for a particular line and I hope they accept as well as a novel for another set. I hope I can get them finished and that they are accepted!
For Splintered Lands, I did finish and turn in the short following the Dangerous Journey online serial to be included in an anthology for them. I’m stalled on my novel though. GRRR I’ve lost my rhythm. grrr Pantser or Plotter, you lose your groove and it’s yikes!! I can keep writing, but I have a natural feel to how a book should flow and if I keep writing the right scenes of action, etc won’t be where they need to be and I’ve learned NOT to do that, no matter how tempting it is. So I’m going to have to do something else I don’t like, which is go back to the beginning. Sigh. I will make character cards as I go through and apply what I’ve learned through the editing process at Breathless Press, so it’ll be good, but… *wails* I want to ADD to the story not edit right now. I’ve already cut enough cuz I changed my mind on a character.
I’ve also put in a short for Deepwood Publishing for their Ancient New Anthology, something I hope to turn into a mini series, I’m calling it Traincoach of Death, The Shot. Been a busy girl.
Had sick kids, then about a week and a half of happy, then I got sick, with my 10yo not feeling great either. Put’s a little hitch in the giddyup if you know what I mean. But, things are progressing! Time for me to go write some more Have a great day!
