The End

It’s over. I’ve done it. 50,155 words in 30 days. It’s been such an exhausting and emotional roller coaster ride.

There were times when I wanted to quit. I’m glad that I didn’t. Writing Clan of Blood was an interesting experience. It opened my eyes to a few things that need a bit of change in the first book. It’s nothing that I can’t go in there and alter a few things.

But right now, I’m not going to worry about anything. I’m going to take a break and relax. I’ll still be writing but editing will take a back seat.

For all those who have hit the 50k mark, Congratulations!

For those who haven’t, there’s still time. You got this!

For now, goodnight.

Of Progress

The research on agents continues as I get ready to send out queries. It has taken me a bit longer than what I would have liked but I don’t want to rush anything. Part of me is nervous and terrified but the other part is excited.

During my research, I discovered that an agent I was previously going to query is now closed for submissions. I’m glad I checked that before sending a query out. I’d like to respect an agent’s wishes.

On another note: writing has been really productive. I’ve gotten a lot of writing for the past week. Unfortunately, I keep jumping from project to project. It just so happens that I suddenly get an interesting scenes in my head that would work perfectly with the story that I mist write it down. I still work on my main current which is Crimson Queen but others have recently gotten attention.

I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing yet, having my focus split like that but I’ll just have to wait and see.

Updates and Storm

It’s been one heck of a week – make that two. UofH started classes on the 21st and it’s been hectic at work. Since we are severely under staffed, I work more (yaye) but that also doesn’t leave much time to do anything else.

On the bright side, I have completed my summary for Clan of Ash and will be sending queries out by next Friday.

On the downside however, there’s a hurricane. And I’m in Houston. So, I got to make sure all my books and electronics, and story idea notebooks, and everything else to be somewhere safe. I doubt I’ll have to leave. Let’s hope not. Fingers crossed. And for those also on the coast: stay safe.
