Write it down on Wednesday

So I thought I would make Wednesday my official writing update day. I have so many story projects going on and I need a push to get some done. So I will be trying to post each Wednesday about how my writing adventures are going (and I may need a swift kick in the pants by you guys sometimes).

Current Active Project:

Princess Bs - 9,073 words
A story about a woman, recently divorced and returned to her home town to figure out what is next. She encounters an old friend and spends a weekend with him and his daughters. Feelings that are long since buried are rising up again, but are her recent loss and his current life going to stand in the way of their happily ever after?

Other Works in Progress:

Tamlyn Marie's Grace - 12,072 words
Think Cinderella only with a matchmaker ;)

The Last Mountains - 15,352
A equine shapeshifting family is being hunted to near extinction and the young new leader must go against all her lessons and approach the elite council for aide. Will they help her? How will she keep her family's traditions and values alive, let alone her herd?

Night Rider - 17,229
 Alice is a recent high school graduate who is a very accomplished competitive rider in Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, and Western/Rodeo. Her parents had arranged for her to attend a private college on the east coast geared specifically to equine professions. However, Alice wants to focus on her studies in English Literature. When she arrives at the college she hides her riding abilities, but can she keep her talent and love of horses hidden?

Other Ideas Plotting:

The New Old Home
A lottery won and what is decided to do with the money.

Bloodsoar's Story
A pegasus struggles through life, ejected from the herd, near capture by humans.

The Assassin's Assassin
A student learns what the school is really teaching and sets out to destroy those who support the program.

So what do you guys think? Too many projects going?! Any particular one catch your interest?

I will leave you with a couple of teaser lines from Princess Bs:
When there was one cookie left, Bella claimed that Beth had more than she so she should get the last cookie. This of course sparked Beth into saying that she was the oldest so she should get the cookie. Before Tyson could jump in to stop the fight, Bonnie’s calm almost quite voice cut through the argument “Princesses should never fight with one another, especially when there is a guest visiting.” Reminded of their lessons that morning both girls dropped their heads and apologized to each other. 


  1. I totally share your situation. I have so many ideas in the works, but I can say that I've narrowed it down to only a handful to focus on at the moment. You are much further ahead than I am though! I'm still in the plotting stage on all but one. I WANT to work on more than one at once, but I really want to finish one first.

    I like the bottom two new story ideas. The last one sounds very intriguing! ^_^

  2. The Last Mountains one sounds intriguing and also Bloodsoar's Story and The Assassin's Assassin sound good too.

  3. Yea its a really problem I have Jessica. I haven't managed to finish anything yet. I get struck by a great idea and I write as fast as I can and then I get struck with another great idea so have to write that one down too before I forget.

    Last Mountains was my last years Nanowrimo project and one that I think would be my best if I could just get it done! Bloodsoar's story was inspired by an equine RP I use to do, I became very attached to my character and think that I should write his backstory. Assassin's Assassin is my most recent idea, way out of any genre I have ever even considered writing but I will give it a shot!
