Writing Wednesday

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 New Old Home
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.

Other Works in Progress:

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?

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:

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 I still don't have any writing done because I am waiting for that ever important November 1st date! I can't wait! I have 10 chapters outlined and a bunch of research done, still plenty more to do but it should get me well over half way through the book.  So by next Wednesday you should see my word count increasing quickly!!  Good luck to all the other Nano participants this year!


  1. I'm waiting for November 1st too! Instead of writing, I've been plotting the NaNo story and reading more to get caught up so I don't get behind in November. So exciting!

  2. I'm so glad you are joining Nano this year, I am sure you will do great, its hard to keep focused sometimes though, my best advice is get ahead early and try to keep the momentum going as much as possible.

  3. I can't wait for NaNo to start! Both you ladies are on my list to be added as buddies. I just haven't done any real planning. Starting to get a bit anxious. Once again you're so well organised Ang!

  4. Haha you must be a pantser Lan! I am hyper organized all the time, I have checklists for my check lists and nearly every minute of the day planned (I know it takes me 22 minutes to clean the bathroom- how sad huh?).

  5. Yay! Another NaNoWriMo book blogger! I'm making a list of us here:
    Let me know if you want more details added to your entry.

  6. That's a good idea Joy! Thank you!
