In 2015 I’d created a writing plan for 2016 that went against my nature, the nature of being a slow writer. In some ways it did work.
I started revising my NaNoWriMo 2015 novels Dreaming of You and The Soul Traveler. Had another successful National Poetry Month. And my first blog tour for my poetry chapbook Can You Catch My Flow? Finally took my mythic fantasy work in progress, Harbingers of El Tinor, off of hiatus for NaNoWriMo 2016.
Yet my ultimate goal for 2017 is to finally add the greatest words in the dictionary at the end of my work in progress. “The End.” And with 2016 nearing it’s end, it’s safe to say that segmenting the year in quarters for my WIP doesn’t work of me. As Douglas Adams said, “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
Now wait a minute…aren’t am I supposed to be on a blogging break?! So what am I doing posting and blogging today? It’s not Monday nor is it 8am, the usual blog post schedule.
Well, I’m just so excited and I wanted to share it with you. Thanks to the suggestions to my post for IWSG (Insecure Writer’s Support Group) on June 1st. I was able to update two of my work in progress stories on Wattpad with new covers! Continue reading

Only difference is, I immediately knew then what I wanted to draft into life and a beating heart. Which is currently on Wattpad with six chapters uploaded. Now, I have no idea because there are three story ideas to choose from.
I mentioned them briefly in my previous post, but today I want to give each a formal introduction. In hopes, you my readers, may able to help me come to a decision. I’m also including a poll at the end of this and the following posts until November 1st. Depending on my feelings and your votes, one of these three will be my NaNoWriMo 2015 novel. So allow me to formally introduce you to: Continue reading
Well Banned Books Week is over. But that doesn’t mean you can’t continue reading banned books for the rest of the year. Or all year long.
For example, and if you haven’t read it yet, then try reading The Hunger Games. As you know, The Hunger Games have been frequently banned/challenged for being anti-ethnic and anti-family. As well as insensitivity, having offensive language, occult/satanic and violent.
In that case, as a rebuttal, here are six reasons why you should read The Hunger Games: Continue reading
