Happenings During My Absence

Wow. Sorry it's been so long. I fear blogging may be losing its steam and edge when it comes to usefulness.

I know I certainly seem to have run out of things to talk about here. But on to the updates.

So, a while back I decided I was through writing. I'd lost the joy in something I'd always loved– reading. I want to reclaim that joy and I'm working on it. But the truth is, ever since I turned to writing as a serious venture, I have found my love of reading waning.

That decision, however, was short-lived. I'm writing again. But the hiatus from writing caused me to lose momentum on the rewrite of Woven. It's still sitting there, asking to be finished. But I've utterly lost interest in the rewrite beyond changing the pronouns to make the book 1st Person POV and to write out the horses. (I realized having my characters travel on horseback was going to become a big hassle as the plot developed in future books in the trilogy.)

I'm writing a superhero story. It's pretty awesome, I'm not gonna lie. (I may be biased. But I love my characters and their story.) I'm about 11K into the story and things are coming along nicely. There's a lot more romance in this book. At least, it's more in the fore when compared to Woven. It's a nice experiment, seeing if I can manage to write a convincing romance that features so prominently.

I joined Tumblr (again). You can find me there at Over there it's all about anything that tickles my writer fancy, which includes geeky stuff like video games and shipping my OTPs. If you're on Tumblr let me know.

The Hobbit comes out today! Terribly exciting. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

This could very well be my last post before Christmas so I hope you all have a merry Christmas.

  1. I can completely relate to your post. It seems like I don't have enough time in the day to do all I want to. I took a few months off from writing and now I'm revising all my novels (all 6 of them) and plan to re-upload them to amazon and B&N. During that time I tried to reconnect with reading but only found myself feeling guilty because I wasn't writing. As if that wasn't enough, weeks went by without posting on my blog so I felt guilty because of that. I believe I need to reorganize my days (along with working 9 hours shifts at the "day job") so I'm more productive and feel less guilty.

    Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Wow! I suspected you were taking a break from writing, but I'm excited to see you're back into it! And on a really different project too! I hope you have a fantastic Christmas. :)
