Turtles can be Cute as Bunnies

I feel like getting this first book to the finish line is a very slow and steady race. Technically, I’m not racing against anyone but my own goal to get the book published by the end of this year. I got many things set up for it already. The Amazon Kindle Digital Publishing account. Kobo […]

Writing and Revising and Critiquing…Oh My

Just wanted to write a quick update. I’m getting back into the swing of things. All the drama with the car and my phone and my computer (I don’t know if I mentioned that I was trying to upgrade my SSD aka hard drive to a larger size but that was a colossal mess!) didn’t […]


When You Lose Your Motivation

All last week, I didn’t write one word for my second book. You might ask, “What happened? Is it writer’s block?” Some of it can be attributed to writer’s block.

I found that it slowed down the writing process because I would end up rewriting a chapter over and over again and only add a few hundred words […]

What’s Your Writing Inspiration?

Finally designed the bare bones of this website to get it up and running but now I’ve lost that momentum from NaNoWriMo. I was hoping to start the outline for the next book in the series and get the critiques in for some overdue chapters from my Scribophile friends, but I only got to the […]


Thank You #NaNoWriMo 1

Thanks to NaNoWriMo, I finished the first draft of my WIP, Scent of Attraction. Before I discovered NaNoWriMo, my novel was at a standstill, just waiting on my computer—and in my head—to be completed. I figured, what is a better way to add 50,000 words to my novel, than to be motivated with a 2,000 […]
