    Writing Process for Indie Writers

    Seasons greetings, May your winter holidays be merry and bright – even if it’s just chilling at home or at work. I have discovered that I like to research any topic that tickles my fancy and I like to organize it. I’m probably a word geek. Yes, a word geek ( or wordsmith, if you will). I can live with that. In my latest research binge and the love of organizing it I have conjured a decent list about the writing process from brainstorming ideas to publication. This list is not the only way to write or the One Great List to rule them all. This a launching point. Tweak as…

    September Goals

    Hello, my friends. Happy September and welcome to autumn. (I love the fall!!!) Wow. September has come so fast and is already a quarter of the way finished. School is upon us! Our household is alive with books, art supplies, and imagination. I am still gathering my homeschooling bearings but feel like I will be in the groove this week and I am learning just as much as the kids are (maybe more). My manuscript has gone through a round of editing and I will be tackling another draft to clean up and fix things. My goal this month is to finish with my edits then move forward with round two.…

    August Updates, Goals, and Upcoming Giveaway

      My summer hit the ground running. Before I knew it August came. My goodness, I barely realized it was July. July was full of exploration, family gatherings, crafting, and, of course, writing. I have a couple major goals happening in August. Straight out the gate, I am participating in a superhero walk for the International China Concern. I donated last year but couldn’t make the walk. This year I am donating and will be able to join in on the walk. The goal is that I have to make a superhero costume, really fast. (Lack of time at its finest.) Yes, I will be a superhero. Power Girl for…

    Editing everything

                          Well, it’s a long-time-no-post situation. Thank you for your patience. I am currently working on re-writing my story ending but may still choose an earlier version. Stories sometimes have a way of writing themselves (in a matter of speaking). Also, the website is going through a bit of a transformation so please keep checking back to see all the new changes. If you’d like to keep up to date and be notified of all the new content before everyone else I will suggest signing up to my newsletter! Sneak peeks and free content should be arriving fairly soon. Thank you…

And, I couldn’t be happier about it.  I have been so busy with my writing and Christmastime that I have put a slight halt to my blogging. I love you all for your patience. Thank you! Christmas is almost upon us, again, and there’s so much to prepare, lists to check off, people to see, and, of course, writing to be finished. I have given myself a bit of time to chew over what I wrote in the month of November and am doing a bit more world building…
