I have been advised to take a break from work as I get my head together. That means I have stopped working towards my goal with National Novel Writing Month’s goal tracker. I am quite sad about that, but I think it’s for the best right now, as I seem to be steering in the wrong direction with Eleanor. I need to step away, then come back to it with fresh eyes.
Hi everyone, It’s very close to National Novel Writing Month! Eeee! I’ve started my research and planning and now have a better idea of what to do exactly for the project. I will be writing about some events or incidents in the Marquis de Sade’s life, a sort of series of short stories in a … Continue reading Getting ready for NaNoWriMo

Yes, I will be older and wiser, and maybe even a little depressed because I’m still in denial about the ’90s being so long ago. I’m pretty sure … Continue reading Birthday break!
Okay, so I’ve abandoned any and all attempts at having a break, because it’s just not working. Instead, I’m placing all my thoughts, effort, and time into continuing my work on Wings of Malice, a young adult fantasy novel. I left Wings of Malice about a year ago after hitting a wall, but also, more … Continue reading Wings of Malice, comps, and Sade
Taking this “relaxing” week off (after finishing up Eleanor) is just not happening. I’m feeling a little empty not working those 14-18 hour days. So, I’ve been considering starting a new project, but I know I should stay Eleanor-focused. It will need more work, I know that. It’s just this bloody break. What should I … Continue reading Limbo and finding comp titles
