Today was a good day :)

I think I might have my writing mojo back. I wrote just under 2000 words during a 4-hour stint at a cafe today 🙂 It was on the story I was writing before burn-out hit me. Is that a sign? I don’t know, but I’m happy about what I did 🙂 This story is what […]

Day 13 of writing

I watched a video on minimalism and one of the questions was ‘What do you want to do with your 30’s?’ It made me think some more about where I’m headed. In 15 months I’m going to be 30 and I’ve still got my goal of self-publishing 10 books to complete. I want to achieve […]

A new story in progress

I’ve written the first three chapters of a new story. I had writing a skeleton draft of this story last November. I pretty much started with the end in mind and during a plane trip got back into it and added some more events to it. It’s going to be a young adult fantasy set […]
