I couldn’t focus on anything writing-related at the time. Everything I wrote felt forced…

    #WIPMarathon Report #14 (March)

    In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb… To clarify all of this since I had so much going on, I wrote “Raven” in November and December of last year. “Whisper” is a story I started last fall and got about 16k in before realizing that the plot wasn’t working. I put it on hold since I didn’t know what to do. “Painted Chaos” is a new idea I’ve been outlining. And “Discord” is a story written and queried last year that I had gotten a revise and resubmit for. Last report wordcount + chapter count: Raven = revision notes organized Painted Chaos = 37 chapters outlined Whisper = made some…

    Christmas 2014 & #WIPMarathon Report #11 (December)

    🙂 The end of the year is upon us! Christmastime has passed for some of us, and yours truly received this little cotton ball from her sister: He’s two months old. We’re bonding right now. So far I’ve learned that he hates sudden loud noises (don’t we all) and gets excited over music. My kind of bunny! Also, he pees in a litter box like a cat. So great. ^_^ Anywho, Christmas was good! I got my brother a rather loud, lime green golf shirt, and he really likes it, so score! In less awesome news, during a card game called Spoons (I think), I sustained I lovely, poisonous snake…
