Time time time ain’t got any of it

Decided that I’d finally get around to my novel rewrite this summer, there’s barely any time for breathing as it is right now.

Novel rewrite?

Yeah, I finished the rough (first) draft, and I’m about to launch into the second run through of it, assuming I live past this next four weeks of exams and moving out.

But more news will be posted here and at my writing tumblr (, so stay tuned for the fun stuff.  This is the novel that I did for NaNoWriMo 2012, but like I said, a rewrite is necessary here.

Rewrites might just become my friend this summer. *sigh*

Will post more novel details at a later date.  Maybe tomorrow.



Today I finally realized how much I underestimated the size of one of my current projects.  There’s just so more to get into, which I know is a good thing.  The only thing holding me back is my tendency to procrastinate.  As in, saving the assignments until 8 pm Sunday night when it’s due in sixteen hours.  And in there somewhere I have to remember to finish my other assignments.

Like I said, if I could just focus…

However, I am starting to look for a publisher that does novellas.  I have one already that needs a few final edits, and I want to finish this current project so that I can publish the two in the same book.  Any ideas or recommendations?


Progress Check

Hey everyone

I’ll admit right now, that the only reason I’m not taking the daily challenge from the Daily Post at is because I know next to nothing about what is going on at Wall Street, so I don’t think I’d have anything intelligent to say about it. Looks like I have a little research to do…

Anyway, not much progress on the novel outlining because I’ve been swamped with schoolwork, but it is my plan to finish the outline by Tuesday.  Assuming that the story doesn’t extend beyond forty chapters, which I’m hoping it won’t because forty chapters is a handful for me.  Especially since I’m juggling numerous other writing projects at the same time, and will continue to do so during November.

But I have been exchanging emails with one of the NaNoWriMo administrators, mostly over profile and story-related information.  Story profile has been updated to include the story’s title, synopsis, and genre.  I’d include the book cover too, BUT that is one of the things I talked about with the administrators, since there is no spot available for it.  Once November starts, I’ll include a link to that particular profile.

I guess that’s all, I promise tomorrow’s will be a little more exciting 😉
