A Year of Writing In Review

A year ago, like so many people, I found myself locked in my house, working, living, and existing all in the same space.

2020 In Review and My Goals For 2021

At the beginning of 2020, I was working a job that I hated. On my down time, which was more down than up, I would write parts of my story that I had been kicking around in my head for over ten years. Like always, I would start and stop. I would write random scenes with no real direction, and for some inconceivable reason, … Read More 2020 In Review and My Goals For 2021

What I want out of life is to create a world of stories that lives on after me. I want someone to pick up my book on a shelf (or pull … Read More What You Give Up To Be A Writer

NaNoWriMo has officially ended and now I have to answer the question; did I “finish” National Novel Writing Month? If you aren’t competing and are just following the guidelines to work on your own material, then the goal of NaNoWriMo is to come out of it with a 50,000 word manuscript. That means you have to hit at least 1670 words a day if … Read More NaNoWriMo is over! What now?
