July 2018 Wrap-up!

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. ~Russel Baker July…has been a heatwave. And I have changed my mind- I like the winter better than the summer when the summer is 30 degrees Celsius! It has been incredibly difficult to get anything done. My …

Words & Thoughts – Week 30

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words I’ve written. I’ve been writing Into the Unknown, and I’ve finished the section of editing I was working on.  It’s all too complicated to try and explain, to be honest, but I have learned a lot this week about editing, and started to find …

Words & Thoughts – Week 13

Words & Thoughts – Week 12

Words & Thoughts – Week 5

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Short one this week. I’m still working on Elondria. And I’m back working on Rabbit as well. I’m doing some character and worldbuilding work, to try and help with fleshing out the skeleton that is draft one. Thought Decisions are hard. It’s not a …

Words & Thoughts – Week 3

Weekly writing update & thought. Words I am still making steady headway with draft three of Elondria, but my aim of finishing by the end of the February doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Thinking about how much I can realistically write each week, I can’t hit the goal. …
