The purpose of this blog is to track the many hours of writing for my novels, short stories, and anything else I end up writing.
I began my novel, Scion (formerly titled The Truth About Jacob) on May 15, 2010. To date I have 46 what I would call publishable pages and a whole lot of other “stuff” that is written but isn’t really readable yet, a collection of post-it scribbles and a mass of thoughts in my head about what I want the story to aim towards. I realize 46 pages does not seem like very much from then to now, but I am only able to write part-time as I also like to eat food and working pays for that.
I have no intention to get into the meat of the novel here as I intend to publish it someday (hopefully sooner rather than later) and would like to play it close to my chest for now. It’s basically in pre-alpha stage. Just know that it will be fictional and exciting, I hope. Also, I have a copyright already for it.
Other than capturing quick updates from my tweets, I intend to post about my challenges, uncertainties, needs, thoughts, and feelings about writing this novel. I expect such themes as work-life balance, writing time vs family time, and writing time vs “field experience” to enter into this blog.
My next posts will be more exciting… I promise! Or they will only be tweets as I will be busy writing I hope (though I have some job stuff to focus on and karate to practice, as well as, a husband to love) – there’s all of that balance stuff from above coming into play.
No longer married, unless you count roller derby.
