WiP Wednesday 5/25/2016

Right, I was going to post progress updates on the blog for now. Sorry for neglecting that.

I've made small progress in the current fantasy WiP. This one is switching POVs back and forth, though the female lead is getting more screen time than the male lead. This one's a traditional fantasy set in the same universe as Woven. But it's not tied into the overall storyline Woven is part of.

The WiP is currently sitting at a little over 14K. I'm aiming for 70K for this first draft. We'll see if the story stretches that far in this first go. I tend to add sub-plots and twists once I've got the story out on paper.

Reopening The Blog

I have officially decided to reopen the writing blog. I still have the cosplay blog over at the address. But at least for purposes of blogspot, I'm going to retain some separation. There won't be frequent postings here for now save for WiP Wednesdays to try to keep myself motivated.

If you have a question you're dying to ask me, something you want me to address here on my site, or an interview or other similar request, send it to info(at)stephanie-mcgee(dot)com General email can be sent to stephanie(at)stephanie-mcgee(dot)com

New Start

Hello friends.

You may or may not be reading this since I took the blog off my custom domain. If you are, you'll want to delete this bookmark.

I've decided that it's time to retire this particular blog. With a fresh start to my writing career comes a fresh start to the way I approach some of my social media.

My new blog is currently linked at and is on Blogspot as The latter will redirect to the custom domain. I'm still playing around with some settings and some layout stuff at the new blog so bear with any hiccups, please.

Mental Health and Writing. Specifically My Mental Health

I may be nearing a point where I'm itching to get back into writing. There's been an occasional urge, but I was so busy getting ready for Salt Lake Comic Con 2014 that I didn't.

But I'm close. I can feel the muse stirring again and asking to get some exercise. Which is a good thing. Keeping her healthy keeps my creativity healthy and keeps things balanced.

So you may someday soon see me tweeting again about writing and editing. But maybe not too soon, yeah?

Inspiration After Walking Away

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I've been on inspiration pinning sprees. Why would I do this if I've walked away from writing?

Because maybe someday I will come back to writing. And if I do, won't it be nice to have a bunch of lovely images ready to pull me back into the story worlds I've currently left?

A very short post but one that was pestering me to be written.

The Future: A Long, Hard Look

Friends, I think it's high time I admit defeat. It's been a long journey to this point. Five years ago when I sat down and decided to get serious about this writing thing, I was happily oblivious.

Writing was still fun back then. Writing hadn't sapped the joy from everything else yet. Writing hadn't become ONE MORE THING I had to get done in a day. Daily word count goals weren't something to feel guilty about not meeting.

Having a life, interests and hobbies outside of reading and writing weren't something to feel guilty for enjoying.

I'm tired of feeling like a BAD PERSON for not writing. For not reading. I long for the days when reading was a pleasure and a joy, not one more thing I should be doing.

All this to say that I am walking away. Forever? I don't know. It could be forever, it could be for a month or two. Probably at the very least, until next year.

But frankly, I may never write again. Why should I when I'm no good at it, as people are all too fond of telling me.
