Decisions have been made...

Summer has finally arrived in a rather less fashionable, shabby way. In other words, it does not really feel like summer. It has only been two days however! So I suppose I shall wait it out and see when I finally feel like I can breathe... With this said, Summer means that I have more time to work on my book(s), and write to you. :) 

About a week ago, a very important person to me, visited. With this visit came a very deep and important conversation about my short term (this next year) path as a writer. My plans... I mean, of course I will write until I can no longer hold a pen (I hope). But we talked about what I will be doing over the course of this summer and eleventh grade year. 

I have come to somewhat disappointing (for some of you), conclusion that I will be putting off self-publishing book two for a little while longer. All for a good reason though. I have decided to set it aside for a short period of time and focus on working with my technique and skills as a writer by participating in a few writing groups, and an even known as Camp NaNoWriMo this July. I will hopefully be working on my new book "Seraphina", as I work on this because I feel that it is a great piece of writing to mature. With having six months passed after the start of this (so hopefully by January of 2015), I can be able to go back to "The King's Daughter", and perfect it even more. This way, I will be able to look at all three of my novels in the trilogy, with open eyes and new ideas and ways to come about working on them. 

If none of this makes sense, please say so. Or feel free to ask questions! In short, I hope to be finishing Seraphina (for sure), by December to enter in a certain competition. :) With that done and out of the way, I will be able to complete my trilogy to the best of my ability in order to present it as a whole!

Jumping off the Deep End

Well, for those of you reading on here, this news may be coming out of the deep blue, but today is officially publishing day for the new edition of The King's Daughter! Published this evening, about ten minutes ago, (so it will take a little time to actually show up online... but), my book will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble in print, and will be available as an e-book within a few weeks when I finish up the formatting! I finally thought it about time to stop fussing over the small things (because I knew it'll never be "done" to me if I keep trying to fix minute details). I'm excited to share this newer version with my family and friends who've always shown such great love and support towards my writing over the years! I've come a long way, but know that I still have a long way to go, and The King's Daughter is just my first stop on that long journey! Publishing this will allow me the time now to give more of my time and attention to wor…

A Moment of Realization

I figured it’s been a month, so it’s about time I remove you from the dark. To be perfectly honest, I could’ve written sooner, but in the past month I’ve been settling in at uni, so writing hasn’t quite been my main focus. I know! I’ve wondered to myself too how I could have possibly gone a full month without touching a single work of writing, but it’s a lot easier when you have something else occupying your time. I admit that my biggest fear coming to school was what others told me- I wouldn’t find the time again to write my stories. I’ll be doggy-paddling neck deep in water, turning in circles as I constantly try to stay afloat. If I’m really in that deep, that no, I wouldn’t ever find time to write for fun again. However, if these first four weeks of school have told me anything, it’s quite the opposite- at least for the time being. While still in search of a job where I can make a decent pay for groceries and savings, I have found that I have a lot more free time than I ever thoug…

Things are Changing

With the school year coming to a wrap, time seems to retract from its lengthened state so much so that the days are clearly flying by. A lot has happened as of late, and a lot is still to come. Outside of writing, About a month ago now, I was hospitalized again for my ankle injury after getting cellulitis and a staph infect in my ankle joint from the first surgery I had back in January. It was all quite a debacle, but now I must say my ankle is feeling better than ever, and get more and more excited as my strength returns. Recently I also purchased my first car (well a truck), so I came home this last weekend to clean and repair a bit in preparation for my road trip to Montana for the summer! Last summer was a remarkable experience for me living near and working in Virginia City, and I keep counting down the days until I get to return this year. Not only did I get to experience a lot of memorable things while I was there, but I also got a lot of writing done including working on stori…
