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:

Each Item a Story - 7,841 words

A journal a woman keeps as she sorts through antique items and documents left in a home she purchased.

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 - 5,811

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

All in the Company
A business that keeps to itself, employees marry employees and live on company property. Lissandra is ordered to marry Cody but both are always on business and don't know one another.

Little Wind Guides
Little Wind must lead her clan to new territory as the gods of the Fire Forest are cleansing their home with wrath.  Will they follow her while she holds so many secrets.


Check it out! I added this years Nano project to my list!! Considering I did no planning what so ever for this year I am rather impressed with how well I am doing currently! I came out of the gate strong last Friday with 4600ish words.  I went into the weekend knowing that I wouldn't be writing (and probably won't at all this month due to a very heavy schedule and needing a Sunday down day). According to the Nano goals my word count fell behind on Sunday but I recovered nicely on Monday with another 3200ish words.  Sadly, Tuesday was busy in the office and I was too distracted to continue writing that evening, so a day was lost and so was the inspiration.  Opened my first plot bunny today to get things moving again!

If things keep up like this I may just shoot for the full 50K words this year but don't want to get discouraged if I fall behind so I am sticking with my goal of 25K for now.

So how is everyone else doing?

  1. You're doing great! I'm so excited with your word count so far. I know you'll meet the 25,000, but I really hope you can meet the 50,000 because that would be awesome. :D
