March 31, 2020

I feel like saying March was eventful is a massive understatement. I look back on my February post and think about how quickly things can change.

Since my last update Covid-19 has swept the globe, and to be completely frank, I’m not sure what to think about it all. The impact this virus has had in such a short amount of time has been astonishing, and as America’s death toll climbs, I find myself getting more and more anxious. Especially, at my day job, considering I come home to a toddler and there has been a recent case in my area.

I know I’m not the only one whose nerves are slowly fraying. These are trying times, but I’m trying to make the most of it. Time at home has been spent with my boy and focusing more on the blog and my books. I feel like I’m settling into a pattern with my social media and posting and things are starting to feel more natural for me.

Creating a blog has been a struggle years in the making, but I’m trying my best. I’ve finally got all my pages created (though some of them are blank), I did my first giveaway on Instagram, and my fan art features program is a success. Social distancing seems to not only be the best thing for mine and my family’s health but also my writing.

Since March began, I have started working on a rewrite for part two of my MA+ Witcher fan fiction, Biter, that in my opinion makes the first look like complete garbage. It’s still in progress and should be ready in completion with part three some time in April. I’ve also worked out a partial outline for my Camp Nanowrimo April project, Flowers in the Snow (working title), which I am unbelievably excited to write.

It’s going to be a stand alone novel based off the short story, Fall Into Me, I wrote for that publishing scam last month. If you’d like to pop over to Wattpad and read that, I’ve used the short story as the first scene of chapter one, so consider it a sneak peak. I’ll be posting the entire novel in two weekly chapter installments on Wattpad, free to the public, once the story in finished and professionally edited. Maybe, just maybe, if I finished the first draft in April it will be ready for publication by August! Fingers crossed.

Are any of you going to be participating in Camp Nanowrimo? Let me know in the comments and add me as a buddy! I’d love to have a meet a few new friends and potential critique partners this year!

As always, stay magical, my lovelies, but also stay home and stay healthy.
