I don’t write about my personal writing life much on this blog, but I would like to do that more. So, here’s an update about what I’ve been doing lately.
In November, I completed nanowrimo and have what I hope will become a complete draft of my first short novel. Right now, I am in the process of re-reading it, and creating a new outline that will indicate the final plot, highlighting what plot holes need to be filled, what sub plots will be dropped and which ones will be brought to the forefront. It is my hope that this will lead to a complete draft that can be proofread, beta-read, and edited.
In the past couple of months, I’ve also generated some youtube content, which was so much fun and I hope to do more of. There’s a guided meditation for writers, and a dramatic reading of my creepypasta story “Parasites.” I’m still keeping up with my fiverr.com gigs, and a few of those have been featured on websites. I am also looking at some paid blogging gigs. This is all a little hard, because I do also work 40 hours a week at a job that I really do love and feel privileged to have, but that can be very draining at times.
Thank you all for your continued support, and best wishes to all of you.
