Wednesday Writing

So Wednesday is 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:

The Last Mountains - 13,468 (handwritten) = 15,766 (typed)
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?

Tamlyn Marie's Grace -
Think Cinderella only with a matchmaker ;)

Other Works in Progress:

The New Old Home - 17,193 words
Everyone dreams of winning the lottery, but what would you do with that money? That is the question presented to Natalie, when she is at the lowest point in her life, she is presented with an opportunity to make any normal person's dreams come true, but all those winnings can't give her what she wants most.

Princess Bs - 32,131 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?

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:
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.

Angel Story
Angels battle out an age old feud in a parallel world


So, while reading one of my favorite author's, Kristin Cashore, blog, I found some great editing advise.  I am hoping to get to that stage in my writing soon and I know a few of my fellow writing pals are also in that stage I wanted to share it with you.

So check out Kristin Cashore's Revising Tips, she has some great advise to make your revising and editing a little less overwhelming.

I also got a super amazing package from Jessica from Thoughts at One in the Morning filled with writing and other goodies! I will have to take some pictures to share with all of you! She is so awesome and such a great friend. Thank you hun!!

Unfortunately, the rest of my vacation got so busy I couldn't get any more writing done :( but with new inspiration from Jessica, my fingers are itching to get back to work!


  1. Aw, Jessica is so nice. I hope her package gets you some motivation. I know I could use some. ;)

    1. She is an awesome person and friend! I hope you find some inspiration soon :D

  2. *tackle hug* I hope you get lots of inspiration and can get to the editing phase soon. I can't wait to read your books. ^_^

    1. thanks so much! I think those gummy bears make a direct connection with my brain and get the juices flowing lol
