What I’m working on

Briar winced at the volume of her father’s voice as he refused to allow the family of three, with one on the way if the rounding belly of the mother was anything to go by, to stay at their inn. She hated that he was so damned narrow minded about those who were magical. It was part of the reason why she kept her own secret so close to her heart.

She discovered that she had magic herself only two summers ago, and because she was magic, she knew then that she was adopted. Neither of her parents were magic. No one in their family was either.

Life loves to throw those curve balls at you

It appears that Thursday my eldest child wanted to help his baby brother watch videos on YouTube (he’s a little tech savvy so my husband thought it would be okay, boy was he wrong). Guess what he ended up doing instead? He factory reset my desktop. Head in HandsImage source
The only saving grace I can see in this is that I’ve been using Google Docs for the most part since I’ve started writing again so that bit isn’t gone. Just what was saved onto my hard drive. Now I’m thinking of investing in an external hard drive like Tesia keeps telling me to do.

TGIFO

Camp is officially over and I’m glad to say that I hit the mark I was aiming for! It wasn’t easy writing every day because I was quite rusty from slacking off for so long, but I made it. And that’s what matters.

So my plan for the upcoming months is to work on an old draft I’d finished forever ago and hopefully get it ready for publication by the end of October… maybe early November. The work is called Plunge (though that is subject to change) and it’s a romance novel (of course). I’m currently working out the kinks of the plot and then I’ll be doing some extensive rewriting. I’ll definitely keep you guys updated on the progress of it. Wish me luck!

Camp Nanowrimo: Day 16

So, I got a little off track here the last few days. I was completely unable to do much of anything, but with a change of venue, I was able to get back into the flow of things. In a way, I feel guilty because I hadn’t been meeting my daily goals, but I have to learn to let go and forgive myself. It’s better to just take a few days off for a breather rather than a couple of years like I’ve done before.

Well, we’ve officially passed the midway point of camp. How is everyone else coming along?
