Swinging Back Into Writing

For the past few months, I’ve been working on editing one of my novels and preparing it so I can release it into the terrifying world of agents and editors. This is the novel that I finished writing about this time last year, and I left it since then to let myself forget as much of it as I could. That way, I could return to it with fresh eyes, and begin to edit, which is exactly what I did. And I gotta say, it has been an amazing journey. Continue reading “Swinging Back Into Writing”

I’ve officially started on my third novel, and I must say, it’s really nice getting back into the writing routine. It’s comforting, even if it does take up a lot of time. It’s a good take-up of time.

The writing’s been slow to start, but it’s going well I think. It is a pleasure to be writing again, as much as it is mind-consuming. It is myself in my natural state, as my boyfriend puts it. Continue reading “Where Do You Get Your Inspiration From?”

Getting Back into the Swing of Things

Or at least trying to. My schedule was a bit all over the place throughout December, but now, finally, things feel as though they are calming down somewhat. I’m back to my regular schedule with work, which means I have a little more free time throughout the week, so hopefully I’ll be able to get everything else back in order, including this blog.
