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


How is everyone's Nanowrimo going?  It feels weird not to be busy trying to get words down on paper this month, so much so that I almost jumped in at the last minute (note I am so far from a pantser its not even funny) but I am kind of glad I didn't.  Munchkin ended up getting his shots and has been needing constant cuddling ever since, and leaving not much time for writing.

I am however considering getting a recorder to maybe get some ideas down for transcription later when I have time to sit down and write.

I hope all is going well for all of you!


  1. A recorder! I've thought about doing that but never invested in one. I really should. That would be a lot better for me because sometimes I can't jot things down fast enough.

    I didn't do NaNo this year, too much going on and I want to finish last years NaNo draft. Too bad you couldn't this year, but maybe next year! I may consider it next year. :)

    1. I think it would be easier to use a recorder over notes anyway. Working in a law office I am use to using a recorder to transcribe things for the boss.

      I think they need to do a failed nano in like March or something so I can finish some of my projects but need that extra push of nano over my head!

  2. Everytime my nephews get shots they become so clingy. May you survive. :)

    1. Yup that is pretty much it, he screams bloody murder every time I try to put him down, at the same time though when I am holding him he gives me a big grin and giggles so its not so bad other than not getting anything else done!
