Writing is going very slowly at the moment. Trying to find my work life balance is nearly impossible with 2 kids and a house on the market. Words are happening, but it’s really slow going.
My main focus is my Valentine’s Day Wattpad release. I’m trying to finish it (I’m way over due to turn it in to the other writers I’m working with, sorry!!) and get a cover made so that it’s ready to go up sometime after the 10th of Feb. It’s just a little romance with a paranormal twist.
After that’s mostly done, I’ve got to plot a secret project and get a blurb to that group by Feb 1. (I’m SUPER excited about this, I can’t wait to tell you more!)
THEN – I can get back to writing/editing some words on Legacy. Chapter 8 is currently with my critique group, but I’m looking to release, Chp. 8.2 on Friday, Feb.3rd. Don’t hold me to it, but that is my goal!

Have another kid, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. Ha!
I love my kids, but man. I’m still trying to find balance and get some dedicated, consistent writing time in. Add in Holiday obligations and crazy is an excellent word to describe my life at the moment.
The new section of Legacy of the Necromancer is almost ready. I’ve a page or two left of hard edits on it, then copy edits but spoiler – there’s a fight scene, and those take me forever to get right. At the rate my life is going, I’m afraid my next long stretch of writing won’t happen until I’m on a plane to my in-laws for xmas. So my goal is to get it posted before the 25th. Fingers crossed.

NaNoWriMo this year was a real challenge, mostly because of this cutie:

Even though I didn’t win, I succeeded in reaching my first goal of the month, which was to write every day of November. I also came really close to hitting my second goal of writing 10,000 words. I’m thinking back on the past month and i kinda feel like a super mom. I did a lot, and I’m really proud with how far I got.
For NaNo, I mostly worked on finishing Legacy of the Necromancer. I managed to write all of the last act with the exception of the last few scenes. But I was able to outline those.
Overall, I’m unofficially claiming myself a winner of NaNoWriMo 2016, because even though I didn’t come close to the 50,000 word goal, I feel like I kept with the spirit of NaNo by giving it my everything, even with all of life’s curve balls.
I can’t wait until next year. I’m going to blow NaNo 2017 out of the water.
