So what’s going on with me this month?

Well, first off, look! No more bandages!

My hand is mostly healed so I no longer have to wrap it up like a mummy. Have a little bit of peeling skin around the edges left. So for now, I will have to keep it moist with cocoa butter and/or vaseline. Especially to keep it from healing dark.

Another thing to celebrate is that it’s my birthday month. Happy Birthday to me and to all the June babies!

Anyways, aside from my current WIP, I’ve been finding my focus divided on other writing projects. Two romantic shorts, The Anniversary Present and What Happens in Caribana. And a possible new story/poems for my local writing chapter writing contest.

My current fantasy WIP has been on hiatus for awhile. With several hundred words added, edits and revisions, it’s coming along. At the pace of a turtle. But the other stories are starting to push their way into the forefront from the edges of my mind. 

I want to give it my attention. But my Otherside fantasy series has been on the backburner. Waiting for me to continue the journey until ‘the end.’ The same can be said for the others. And the deadline for the writing contest is August 31st.

Should I tackle and balance all three writing projects? Or ignore them and focus on my WIP? Hhmmmm?

What’s going on with you this month? How do you decide between writing projects? Which takes more priority?


    • Hmm, that’s a good thing about it isn’t it. If one project isn’t working, can take a breather from it while working on another.


  1. That hand is looking good! So glad you are on the mend.

    My WIP has been on hiatus for a couple of years, and now that I’ve dragged it out again, I think snail pace would describe where I’m at. But I’m good with that. At least I’m working on it again.

    • Have a few WIPs that’ve been on hiatus for years too. Once in a while, they flit through my brain, tempting me to drag them out again. But I cringe whenever I actually drag them out. Can’t hardly believe I wrote them.


    • Thanks Sonia. I’m glad to be done with the bandages myself. It was getting to be a chore always having to put pads on to avoid getting more allergic rashes.
      Having more than one WIP at the same time seems to be my modus operandi. Just can’t tell if this way of working is beneficial. Well, if I can complete all of them then I’ll have a lot of releases.


    • Thank you! 😀
      Yeah, like Bob Marley once said, ‘don’t worry, be happy.’ Should stop fretting and write whatever story that makes me happy.
