    #WIPMarathon Update #20 (September)

    🙂 Hiya! Fall is in the air…the leaves are changing! On a couple of trees anyway. They’re building a new gas station two feet from my neighborhood, ya know, right across the street from the other one. Glorious. I’m actually in the final break of an all day Writer’s Conference right now! So it’ll be a little while until I get to everyone, but I hope you’re all doing well! So, how’s the writing going, you ask? One work in progress update being served… 😛 Last report wordcount + chapter count: “Legion” = 16,784 words, Chapter 6 Current report WC + CC: “Legion” = 16,912 words, Chapter 6 “Nevermore” (formerly…

    #WIPMarathon Report#19 (August)

    The most humid month of the year for my area of the world is coming to an end. Time for a work-in-progress update! Last report wordcount + chapter count: “Legion” = 11,761 words, Chapter 5 Current report WC + CC: “Legion” = 16784 words, Chapter 6 5000 words! Whoo! 😐 WIP Issues This Month: I had been trying to pants the story just to be different, but I ended up outlining some anyway since I knew what I wanted for the opening chapters. When I ran out of outline though, I had no idea what to do for about two weeks. I finally decided to just read over what I…

    #WIPMarathon Report #17 (June) & 18 (July)

    Hiya, folks! So, last month, I didn’t do a marathon update, because while I had written that month, I was about to shelve the story I was working on. I know, right?! I didn’t want to talk about it because I was actually kind of sad about it. I loved the idea and it was going well, but at the same time, it was feeling forced and hard and stupid, and it was making me unhappy. Since I had a pact with myself to stop forcing crap, I dropped the story like a cigarette in an anti-smoking commercial for teens. 🙂 Anywho, onto to the stats! Last report wordcount + chapter…

    #WIPMarathon Report #16 (May)

    MAY!! ^_^ It’s my birthday month, so it’s always the time of year I start re-evaluating my goals. 😀 Last report wordcount + chapter count: Phantom Silence = 4907 new words out of 21282 total words, Chapter 13 Current report WC + CC: Phantom Silence = 0 new words this month out of 21282 total words, Chapter 13 “Untitled Paranormal” = 14903 words, Chapter 6 Random Idea: about 5k -I play around with super jumbled ideas sometimes to suss out the plot holes and see if there’s any hope. This is the second time I’ve done this for this idea. It’s very dark and lots of fun, but it’s not making any sense…
