What I'm Working On Now

What's up everyone? So, I looked at the comments from my last post and it looks like some of you want me to share some of what I'm working on now. Well, if you ever want to know about my current WIPs, check the word counters in the sidebar. Those tell you which books and stories I'm writing. Then, just click the "My Books" page at the top of the blog and figure out what I'm writing!

Currently, I'm mainly focusing on a super secret short story that I can't share much about. I can tell you that it has one vampire/actor, two girls, and some crazy action. It's going to be around 5,000 words, I think.

Other than that, I am writing Slice, a novel that also has a bit of vampire action in it. Weird, a while ago I decided I was never going to write vampires. But... I guess I broke that promise. Oh well. Slice also deals with some heavy issues teens face sometimes. Think of it as... Skins or Degrassi with a touch of paranormal elements.

Enchant, which I already finished, is going to probably have to be rewritten. I didn't edit it at all as I wrote, since it was for NaNoWriMo, but now I am seeing the problem with that decision. I'll have to rewrite most of it, but some of it is still salvageable.

Thanks for being interested, and remember that you can still click here to tell me what you want me to be blogging about!

What Do You Want From Me?

I know I am terrible about posting on this blog, and for that I am so sorry. The thing is, I don't really know what to post about. During NaNo, I had a post almost every day. And that worked well. Now that that is over, however, I don't know what to do.

So, readers, tell me, what do you want to see? I am here to blog about writing, so anything related to the subject is open for me to blog about. I really need ideas about what to post here, so please let me know what you want.

Teaser Tuesday #1

Hello everyone! So, I've decided that since my posts here are pretty sporadic and spaced out, that I will be sharing some of my writing each week. I rarely ever post my writing here and thought it would be a good idea to start. So, without further ado, here are some excerpts of Slice.

First Teaser:

My arms felt like they had just been attacked with a chainsaw. Now, the alcohol set them on fire. But that would all go away soon, the numb wasn’t far away.

Second Teaser:

I am invincible, I am invincible. I started to wonder when I would believe it myself.

I hope you guys enjoyed the teasers! See you again soon!

In Which I Plan for the New Year

I know there are reading funks, but does the same thing exist for writing? Or am I just crazy? My answer: probably both.

In December, I took a month-long break from writing. Now, we're over a week in to January and I'm still not writing. I want to write, and I tell myself I am going to write, but I somehow always find something to do to take up that time.

The problem isn't that I am not passionate about what I am writing, because I am. And if I wasn't, I have so many other I ideas I could work on. What I think it is is that I became so accustomed to not writing, that I forgot how to make myself do it.

So here is the plan. I'm going to outline Slice. And then I'm going to start writing every day again. One of my new years resolutions this year is to write three first drafts. That means that besides the one for NaNo, I'll have to write two books. I think I might even write more since I really want to write Charmed.

First up is Slice, then me and Jackie are going to be starting LitW, then maybe something else before NaNo. Or maybe I will leave that "something else" time to edit. Since I never find time to do that. Oh, and I have to write Delicats soon. Karen deserves it.

And at some point, I have to polish up Enchant and send it to some betas, then fix the 22495806 problems it is sure to have.
