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 - 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?

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.


No new writing this week but I have started the outline for New Old Home, getting ready for Nanowrimo! I have to say I am in love with the characters already and all I have done was lay out their descriptions and personalities!

Note: sorry late, I thought I had scheduled this but it only went to draft.

Its Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Shelia at Book Journey. Share what books you have finished in the last week, are currently reading and what might be coming up next!

In other news, there will be some changes coming up on the blog. I have let things fall by the wayside and intend to get caught up again.  I will only participate in Follow Friday on occasion since I can't seem to be able to keep up on it. I will be starting up the Bedtime Stories again.  I will also be bringing back Shelving Saturday but I am going to make it a once a month thing. Writing Wednesday will stay the same as will Monday Reading list. Poetry Pause will be for the next couple weeks to finish this year's poetry challenge, but other than that I find my love for poetry severely lacking and will only have a pause once in a great while.  In My Mailbox will be coming back as well but may be once a month (unless of course I have a great shopping week hehe).  One more note worthy item is that my blogoversary will be coming up shortly and I have a little giveaway planned, so stay tuned!!
