My Writing Process Tag

In making my plans to return to the blogosphere I told myself I wasn’t going to do any tags right away, and when I did I would limit it to maybe one or two a month. Then after one lovely day of surfing around Author-Tube I stumbled upon this awesome writer focused tag created by The Bookish Penbabe. So yeah, the plan of not doing a tag post right away went straight out the window. What appealed to me most about this tag is how in depth it is and focused on the actual writing process. Now I know, she literally named this ‘My Writing Process Tag’ – but a lot of writing tags tend to lean on a fluffier cutesy theme with a limit of roughly ten questions. Not that those aren’t fun or informative, but this one just really stood out to me. So without further ado here I suggest you grab a cup of tea (or your choice of beverage) and keep on reading for my answers!

Writing Goals of 2019

Honey I’m home! I would love to thank all of you who have been supportive and understanding to my disappearance (see previous post for why). Now this impromptu hiatus obviously lasted longer than intended, but sad to report things are still going on with my mother’s health. I am however (as you can see) making my return to the blogosphere with my writing goals of 2019. Yes, yes, I know that most people usually make these types of posts somewhere in December or January. I am not most people though and since I am just now returning at the beginning of February this is when you get my post of goals for the year. So grab a cup of tea (or your beverage of choice) and keep on reading to see what I hope to achieve as a writer this year.

Collected Update

I thought it would be good to give a little update on the progress of Collected. For those of you who don’t know, this is my upcoming debut horror novel. At the moment I am still editor shopping and fundraising. I am also re-writing a few chapters. As I have been going through my own edits trying to get the manuscript ready to send off to an editor I’ve noticed some of my own errors that require the bit of re-writing. Also, I received some criticism recently on the first four chapters that definitely compelled me to want to reevaluate my approach with how my protagonist was being portrayed.

Vini’s Story: Chapter One

So I do have some non-NaNo writing posts planned for this month as well, but I felt like today would be a good day to share the new first chapter of Vini’s Story! This is just the first rough draft. A lot of similarities to the original, but some changes have been made. For example, this chapter is longer sitting at 2,945 words. So you might want to grab a cup of tea (or your beverage of choice) and perhaps some snacks before you start reading this one! Please keep in mind this is a first draft, thus, no editing has been done of any kind to it yet. I just felt inspired to share this with all of you today. Any feedback is always appreciated! For those of you who don’t know, Vini’s Story is a fictional autobiography of how a young rocker survived adolescence. Complete with absent parents, personal struggles, controversies, and her imaginary dead sister. – With that, I am bringing you the first chapter of my current NaNoWriMo project!
