Happy IWSG Day!
We’re half way through the year already. That means we’ve had six months of sharing our writing woes. Six months of having the pleasure in encouraging our fellow writers during this blog hop. Once again, all thanks goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh for bringing us together.
And thanks to the awesome co-hosts posting today: Beverly Stowe McClure, Tyrean Martinson, Tonja Drecker, and Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor!

So what’s going on with me this month?
Well I’m one month into my blogging break. I’m three and half chapters and one bonus short away from completing my adult romance novella series. Passed my first lesson with a 100% in my online proofreading and copyediting certification class.
Just realized my 5 year blogiversary was thirteen days ago.
My son graduated fifth grade yesterday.
And today I’m another year older at 35 years old.
God, I feel old.
And you want to know another doozy? All of these milestones are related to the number 5. I wonder if that’s significant? Like an alignment of the planets kind of thing.
What’s going on with you this month? Have any milestones or recent developments, great or small, going on and want to shout out? Taken any online classes before? Did you enjoy it? Would you recommend it?
June 6 question – What’s harder for you to come up with, book titles or character names?
I have more trouble coming up with book titles than character names. For whatever reason a character’s name comes to me right away as if to say me, me, me! But a book title…oh boy. Before my fantasy WIP Harbingers of El Tinor, it was titled Mythos then Spiritus Mundi. Neither title felt right. Then I noticed a theme of the number three. It started me thinking about power of three, the trinity. Birth, life and death. Father, son and holy ghost. Which then led me to writing three pages worth of possible titles. All related to the number three and my two heroines plus antagonist. Here’s a list of a few of the alternative titles:
Trimurti: Origin of the Trines
Origins: Priestesses of the Trine
Triptych: Origin of the Priestesses
Triptych, Legend of the Cosmic Trine(s)
Ascension: The Priestesses of El Tinor
Harbingers: The Fall of El Tinor
Back to my writing and blogging break. See you next month! 😀
