April 30, 2020

Hello, lovelies! How have you been?April was a pretty busy month for me. Camp Nanowrimo effectively kicked my ass. Out of my 50,000-word count goal, I managed just under 10,000 words. Still, progress is progress, and I’m incredibly happy with what I have written. (And obviously, I’m still working on it.) I did read moreContinue reading “April 30, 2020”

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 hadContinue reading “March 31, 2020”

Hello everyone! I’m actually posting this update a few days late, but the end of February was so hectic! I’m not sure where to begin. A lot happened in February.

Feb 8. 2019

This week I finally concurred Chapter 7 and began work on Chapter 8, and as of 10:00 PM tonight I’ve reached 24,502 words. The story is really starting to take shape on it’s own and it’s better than I could’ve ever imagined. I’ve even began to consider the possibility of a sequel to Black Magnolias.Continue reading “Feb 8. 2019”

Feb. 1, 2019

Chapter seven of Black Magnolias has been a struggle to write. There’s so much that needs to go into it. So much emotion, so much detail, but I think I’m figuring it out. It’s turning out to be a longer chapter. The official word count as of today is 22,837. Admittedly, I’ve not made thisContinue reading “Feb. 1, 2019”
