2013 had been a wonderful year for my writing. When the year started I hadn’t written or edited in years. Due to a contest, I dusted off my manuscript and started a process that would have me doing heavy edits, cutting, and revising. The end result being one step away from publication! I could not be happier with the end results.
In the meantime I turned my attention to the sequel for Lila’s Choice. At the beginning of 2013 this sequel was halfway through its first draft. With newfound energy and passion I completed the draft, as well as several rounds of edits.
When that got to be tiresome, and my creative self itched for new characters to play with, I started writing a new novel, my first contemporary romance. In a month I had a completed first draft. Over the next few months I edited and revised and I am currently just one or two edits away from a finished product. I am beyond excited for this new novel and have high hopes for what its future holds.
I have also started a sequel to the contemporary romance, and am almost finished with draft one. After taking so long on Lila’s Choice I am so thrilled to be able to keep putting my creativity toward new novels.
More importantly I have connected with other writers, and readers. I belong to a writing community. I have learned so much and grown so much as a writer.
I can’t wait to see what I can do in 2014. Regardless of any other accomplishments, I will publish early 2014. My original goal was to publish in 2013 but life doesn’t always work out as planned. The final component is finalizing my cover design. If any bloggers or reviewers are interested in a copy for honest reviews drop me a line, I would love to hear from you!
