So many updates because it has been so long!

I haven’t posted in forever! I’ve had a ton of things happening in my life, so it’s been a bit difficult to try and find the time to sit down and write about what’s happening to me and update you all on the progress of┬áNeon Girlfriend. First thing, my husband was away on a business […]

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and New Year. Did you know Boise has a potato drop instead of a ball drop on New Year’s Eve? It was fabulous. I can’t say what the potato was made out of that they suspended from the crane in front of the capitol building, but […]

A kind word can make the edits all the better.

I’m not going to lie: I’ve had better holidays. Life has been throwing my family a series of curve balls which have made it impossible for me to get home for the holidays. Luckily, I have friends who are in a similar boat and we’re planning on having Christmas together, but this is the first […]

A happy early Thanksgiving to you all.

This should be out the day before Thanksgiving, but I just wanted to take this post to tell those that read this blog that I really do appreciate you. It may not be the best blog, but it keeps me honest with how my work is going. Work isn’t always pretty, and there are days […]

Cruzin’ into the second half of the book!

I’ve been gone for a while now, and boy was it helpful. I have been able to focus solely on my manuscript, and the stress of not having to worry about a blog post every week is really nice. I’ve spent a ton of time on my first chapter. It was the one that felt […]

Posting dates & blog updates

I need your opinion. I’ve been struggling with making content each week that I feel truly revolves around writing, and I was wondering what people would think if I dialed the blog posts to once every other week. I also want to put the majority of my energy into the revision of my manuscript, and […]

Writing to feel the rain

I’ve completely finished the edits on my first draft! Let me tell you, it was an ugly mess. I mentioned in a previous post that I thought the beginning was going to be the easier part (it was not), and I found the further I got into the story the better it became. My husband […]
