All these villains…

This post is inspired by a thread on AbsoluteWrite talking about antagonists. The thread actually got me thinking more about the antagonists in my current WIP and I’m amazed. Why? Because I have so many! Warning: This post will be rather vague, with mentions of MC1, MC2 and A1 (which means Antagonist 1), as opposed to actual names. Why? Because […]

Monday Musings #2

Every Monday, I will post a quick recap of last week’s events. Feel free to join and/or link your own recap! Writing: I reached 25k words in Reflected (Mirrorland #2). Reflected is this year’s CampNaNoWriMo manuscript, so I’m already halfway through Camp NaNoWriMo. Yay! I do think the full manuscript itself will probably reach 60k words though. Editing: I’ve managed […]

Monday Musings #1

Every Monday, I will post a quick recap of the past week’s event. Feel free to join! Writing: I started on Reflected (Mirrorland #2), which is my WIP for this year’s CampNaNoWriMo June. I’m already at 15k words, which is great. I hope to finish it soon. Editing: After the intensive edits for Freactured (Mirrorland #1), I can’t force myself […]

Expanding My Horizon

Updates on “Fractured”

It’s official. Or well, it’s not official yet, but chances are high that my debut novel’s title will change from “Mirror, Mirror” (the working title) to “Fractured”. I actually like the new title more, since it reflects more on the story. I’ve been very busy with working on Fractured. Or well, all of us have at InkSpell Publishing. I got […]

MayNoWriMo #6: Editing Round Two

How many rounds of editing do you generally go through before the editor decides your book is ready to be shipped off to the proofreader? Two, three? More? As you may or may not know (and I hope you do know), my debut novel will be released by InkSpell Publishing in October of this year. We’re currently in the middle […]

MayNoWriMo #5: Setting More Realistic Goals

I know I haven’t been that consistent in my MayNoWriMo posts, mostly because I don’t think it would be entertaining enough for you all if I went on and on about my word count on a daily basis. I might do so during the official NaNoWriMo this year, but I’m not going to bother you with it every single day […]
