Slow progress is still progress

It has been a while since I posted. I had received some bad news the last time I was supposed to post, and I honestly didn’t feel like writing an update. It’s been a while, but I’ve made some progress on the manuscript. It is with an editor at the moment, and I should hopefully […]

Returning to regularity after AWP

The last thing I posted was on AWP in Portland, and it was terrific. I do think I reached my limit of socializing for a while. I’ve done nothing but hide in my house and work since I got back! In all truthfulness, it was a wonderful experience, and I’m thinking of going again next […]

It’s AWP Conference time!

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 […]

My final(ish) draft should be done this week!

First off, sorry this is a lot later than normal. I got to work late today, and this got pushed further down the list of things to do. But, I do have a reason for it: my (ideally) final draft should be done this week! I’m so excited, and it’s been a rush trying to […]

Remembering to write for joy.

Here’s the thing: I’m alone. The hubby is gone on a business trip, and while that means I’ve been doing a lot more Netflix marathons than is probably healthy, it also means I’ve been doing a lot of writing. And I’m remembering what it is like to write for the fun of it. I mentioned […]
