Another fun thing to do: rewrites

The good news is: I've signed a contract for Halfway Home with Ylva Publishing. The 'bad' news is: rewrites. I see how they're necessary, but sometimes it just seems brutal to cut again into your story - which of course you thought was already pretty polished (always compared to what your first draft looked like)....

I’m Thinking [1]

Yeah, that's a first. šŸ˜€ Well, I've been absent here for awhile and not just to think. We already talked about how life gets in the way... it gets in the way of everything, it's like it thinks it's so important. Annoying. Sorry, just having a little bit of fun here. So, I've been absent... Continue Reading →

2017 – let’s get crackin’

First of all, happy new year everyone. I know we're already three weeks into the new year, but you may have noticed by now, I'm moving a little slower than mostly everybody I know. But it's been a peaceful three weeks, mostly. It's been a helpful three weeks and I feel more inclined to take... Continue Reading →

Skipping Ahead

Well, now it's almost Christmas, and now it's almost time to reminisce in time for New Year's. NaNoWriMo is over and I'm sorry that I haven't updated at least one more time, but I've kept putting it off and then stuff happened in life and now... I've written 32,330 words this NaNo which is about... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo Update [2016.1]

Here we are again - one year later, maybe even one year wiser. National Novel Writing Month started a week ago and so far, I've written 5,724 words (update's update 7,082 words). You can see on my NaNo-profile that my NaNo-novel is TroubleĀ² - with a nice cover including two favorite characters from a favorite... Continue Reading →

Once Upon a Time…Editing

There comes a time in a writer's life when they have finished their first draft. And they're happy. The sun is shining a little brighter, food tastes better and the stress of finishing a project is gone. Congratulations, the writer has fulfilled their destiny. Or have they? Because there's the first draft, lying there in... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo Update [2015.2]

I guess a title change was in order, just so I don't get too confused or confusing by using the same title too often (I might be planning to participate in NaNo years to come). NaNo's still going well, though I had two days of procrastination so far. It had a little to do with... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo Update [1]

So, how is everybody's NaNo going? I'd really like to know and would be thrilled if you told me in the comments. My own NaNo endeavor is going great so far. I've written every day, though I haven't reached my daily requirements the last few days. I had a little bit of family time to... Continue Reading →

I’m writing [4]

Good morning, lovelies. As you can see by the picture above, I'm going a little overboard with the cover-making these days. This one is actually just a template, because it doesn't fit Halfway Home at all. That's what I'm writing at now. I've finished my Halloween story Courage at about 15k which is mind-boggling for...

Happy NaNoWriMo 2015

Ah, November, finally. I love November, unlike a lot of people. I love the first cold days, the rainy days you spent at home with a novel and tea, the chills it gives you. And then there's NaNoWriMo, and I've come to like that a lot too. Since my prep post in September, some things... Continue Reading →
