What’s going on with me this month?

Finished plotting out the last five chapters and epilogue of The Soul Traveler. The epilogue is set five years after the events of the story. And left it open ended for a possible sequel with an older, none too wiser and still sassy MC, Kyna Lynn James.

One Lovely Blog Award

one-lovely-blog-award

I’d like to thank fellow Scribophile member Lauren for this nomination! Here’s where you can find her on her blog and Twitter.

First things first, let’s get the rules of the One Lovely Blog Award out of the way!

THE RULES FOR NOMINEES

  • When you get his award, thank the person who nominated you and link their blog.
  • Add the One Lovely Blog Award to your post.
  • Share 7 things about yourself that are not in your Bio.
  • Pass this on to as many people as you like (max 15).
  • Include this set of rules.
  • Inform your nominees.

Hmmm, now to share 7 things about myself that’s not in my bio? That might be a bit hard, so sorry if I’m repeating myself.

  1. When I was little I got hooked on martial arts films so much I wanted to be a ninja when I grew up. Thought it’d be cool to fight with staffs, flip in midair, throw shuriken, run across water, etc.

  2. I’m a bookaholic. Actually it’s gotten so bad that I’ll need to attend Books Anonymous. But doubtful the program would be of any help.

  3. My favorite season is Spring. It used to be summer but that was my feelings during my younger years. The heat of summer was a sign of summer vacation and eating as much ice cream, snow cones, etc that I want. Now, the heat is just unbearable. I much prefer the gentle warmth of Spring and the blooming of colors and life that comes with it.

  4. When I was younger, when I attended Catholic school, I wanted to learn to play the clarinet and violin. I thought the instruments were cool and made a beautiful, distinct sound when played. Unfortunately I never had  the courage to speak up about wanting to learn to play them. Also, because my mom was a single mom raising 3 kids. I knew there wouldn’t be enough money to pay for the instruments and join the school’s music club. Or for lessons.

  5. I’m a huge anime fan. It’s been my goal to pass my love for anime to my kids, as well as my love for books. Unfortunately, I’ve been more successful with the former than the latter. So much so, I’m the one asking my kids what anime they’re watching as they’re now more in the know than I am.

    6. Aside from being an anime fan I’m a huge Korean drama fan. Actually, I started watching Korean dramas, after watching a lot of Japanese dramas. Which I only started watching because I really, really, really wanted to watch the TV series based on the manga Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers). My favorite Korean actor, one of many, is Lee Min Ho. Who also played the character of Domyouji in the Korean drama adaptation of Hana Yori Dango.

    7. Hawaii, Paris, Italy, Greece, etc. These are the typical places most people might list as places they’d like to visit one day. That’s especially true for me, but there’s one place I’d love to vacation to the most above all. Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan. See #5. Akihabara is a district in Japan, a mecca of computer tech, video games, manga and anime.

IWSG Day- High on Writing!

Insecure Writers Support Group New Badge

Wow, it’s March already? I have a feeling that before I know I’ll be saying Happy 2018! Anyways, it’s IWSG day again! Where every first Wednesday of month us writers get together. Sharing our highs and lows in this winding and occasional potholed road of our writing journeys. To push each other and celebrate when we reach our goals. As well as pull each other up and encourage to go on when we stumble. Writing can be a long, strange trip. And so thanks for creating the light to guide us, the IWSG, goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex J. Cavanaugh!

So what’s going on with me this month?

Well I’m still on a writer’s high from last week Friday. I finally finished and uploaded the latest chapter draft to my romance WIP on Wattpad. According to Wattpad stats stories fare a lot better and get more reads and views when they’re updated on Fridays. Not sure how true it is, for me, as  my posting date is whenever I’m able to. So I wonder what’ll happen if I try to upload a new chapter consistently on Fridays. Continue reading
