I came up with this ballet/dance story idea a while ago (probably sometimes last year when I went through my “dance movie” phase), but it had never been anything more than just an idea. Then at the end of last year when I started getting into screenwriting, I planned that this year I was going to write the screenplay for it, because obviously there are … Continue reading I WROTE ANOTHER NOVEL
Last July I participated in my first Camp Nanowrimo, last November I participated in my first Nanowrimo (writing 50k in a month), and I also participated in April and July Camp Nanowrimo this year again. In all four of those months, I completed or won the goals that I had set for myself, and I thought for sure that I would win this November too. … Continue reading i won NANOWRIMO 2017… kinda
Yep… it’s that time again. That time where writers come together to try and write 50000 words in a month… or do everything else possible to procrastinate writing 50000 words in the month. Starting in July 2016, I’ve participated in three Camp Nanowrimo’s, but only one Nanowrimo. Last November, I won!

I have actually been on a hiatus from a lot of things since I started back at uni this semester. I had so many scheduled posts and book reviews for my blog that you wouldn’t be able to tell … Continue reading writing updates: working on so many projects!
If you read my previous blog post on my writing journey, you would know that in April I started working on a new novel which I finished the first draft of during June. You can check out that blog post here -> https://alwaysandforeverreading.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/i-started-writing-a-new-novel/ Today, I’m going to be discussing the editing process I used to edit the first draft and the ones after. I’m currently … Continue reading editing my WIP: the second and third and fourth draft
Previously I have uploaded two blog posts talking about my process of writing and editing my WIP at the time. But a couple months ago (March) I decided to step away from that project. If you read those blog posts, you would have noticed how excited I was to get back into working on that novel. During April Camp Nanowrimo, I was planning on finishing … Continue reading I started writing a new novel!
