My fave outdoor writing spot’s in full summer swing ☀️(With storms rolling in and everything 🌦⚡️)
Tomorrow, book 2 drafting begins! (Also, why can I not draw a straight line? 😞)For those curious, that top box says:91 days / 13 weeks10,000 words/wk~1500 words/day1000 weekday / 2500 weekend dayI will in all likelihood not accomplish this, it’s a pretty intense regimen to keep up for three straight months. But dangit I’m gonna try 🙃😬
Aaand my second round of revisions have been sent to Editor! *long, heavy sigh of relief* 😅 It took me ~a week longer than I thought because… 1. I’m still really bad at gauging the time required for edits ⏳ 2. Once I was “done” I realized listening to the whole thing through would be a good idea 🔊 And…read more
Hi, Weekend! I’m very glad to see you right now! Very much in need of some uninterrupted revision time, this week was just one of those weeks 😅 Barring any extenuating circumstances, I should be finishing my second (and hopefully final) round of developmental edits this weekend! 🤞🤞 Then I’ll be back into outline mode for book 2. Really looking…read more

This is how desperate I am to finish these revisions before I go to NYC… It’s, uh … gross? lol 😅 This thing’s a … “blonde roast with extra almond milk.” I thought it’d be a -little- sweeter but 😬 There’s so many options I was a little overwhelmed tbh. Iced,…read more

Nothing like a rainy spring day to sit down and finalize an in-world navigation and ordnance bearing system 🙄 🚀 I really thought I was done with math for this book, but I was so, so wrong. 😅 I managed to work it all out on paper, but kept getting tripped up when I tried to apply it practically in…read more
Much-needed Starbucks writing session to kick this slump. I love writing action scenes, but they’re also the worrrrrst. 🤜💥🤛 Also results in lots of miming actions and generally acting like a weirdo, which either entertains or annoys the other patrons 🤷♀️ Happy Saturday!!
And so it begins! Wish me luck 😅 Going into the New Year, my primary goal is to focus hard on revisions. Between rounds I’ll start drafting the sequel! What are your 2019 goals?
Two years ago today, I finished the first draft of THE LAST WATCH. ✨🚀 This week, I received my first edit letter, and in just a couple days, I’ll be starting the first round of developmental edits! I’m as excited about this story now as I was when I wrote the very first line, and I’m so looking forward to…read more
