~Spring Break~

Spring break is nearly upon us here in Frankfurt, Germany (at least for my school). I am so exited and forever grateful to my aunt who will be journeying with me to Greece next week, and then Normandy the week after! Never in my life would I have thought that I would get to go to such beautiful places, but life can take you by surprise (not just the bad!) Along with spring break though, comes my slight increase in speed as I try to finish my extra classes in time for graduation. Because, of this, I have been quite busy... but not busy enough to neglect my writing. :) My new story "Minds of Fortitude" is coming along excellently I would say, AND I've started going through "The King's Daughter" for the first time in a year. Wow, what a difference time makes. Perhaps with this new outlook on the book, the right changes will be made to make it the best possible to try submitting to traditional publishers once again! Never give up for there are always more opportunities out there.

Although I won't be going to university in the fall, I will be attending community college and earning money working a little as well. This can help me get the best plans in place to then transfer to the university of my choice (hopefully ;). The extra time that I will hopefully have, will then be well spent working on my books! How great does that sound? Furthering the good news, "Seraphina" is now at 80,000 words and still counting.

Apologies for not having more news or ideas or information to share at the moment, but I do hope to do some travel writing while in Greece and Normandy to bring the vacation to you. ;)

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…
