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:

Princess Bs - 34,317 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?

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.

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?

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?

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 I have managed to complete two of my 2013 writing goals so far this month :D I have finished my outline for the ending of Princess Bs, some of it will probably be thrown out in the long run but I have a means to get to the end that I want for the story.  I also settled on a digital voice recorder and got it ordered.  Fun thing about a digital one instead of tapes is that you can create folders so I can have one folder for a current project and another folder for random ideas that strike me.

I am excited to say that I have managed to also get myself motivated to work on the Princess Bs, I just started writing again on Monday and have already managed to write 1,650 words! It doesn't seem like much but it is a start. I may not quite reach my goal of 18K words this month but am just happy to be making progress in the writing front again.  I am using what little spare time I have in the office for my writing (and the spare time I have at home goes to reading). I think I have developed a nice balance and schedule for myself.


  1. That's great news! So glad to hear you're getting somewhere in your writing again. :) You need to tell me which digital voice recorder you got and let me know if it works well for you so I can get one too. I really need one at times. :P

    1. I will definitely let you know about the recorder after I have had a chance to use it. I do like how small it is, almost small enough to fit in a pocket.
