End of July update

With July slowly coming to an end, I should probably do one more blog post. I know a lot of you have noticed that I've been silent on social media and I haven't done a whole lot of anything related to writing. A lot of it is because I'm bogged down by wedding planning and a lot of it is my own issues. It's very hard to get things down when you're being piled on by other things left and right. It gets hard to focus on writing with other factors coming in. So I've had to cut down on writing and take a little break for myself. That means I've got to implement a few changes.

First, I'm not going to be sending in a story of Solstice's fantasy or sci-fi anthologies. I simply do not have any time to come up with anything and I'm not in the mindset to do anything fantasy/sci-fi related. Not to mention, the due date is August 1st and I will not be able to get 5000 words down on something brand in two days. I probably will wait until the Winter Solstice anthology to send something in.

Although I took a break from writing, I'm slowly getting back into it. I made it to 31k on Ghosts of Burning Inn #3, which is pretty good for me. Rather than try to do 4000 words a day, I'm going to cut it down to 500 a day. I need to take a baby steps to get myself back in this writing mindset. I promise that once this wedding is over, things will go back to normal and I will hopefully be writing at a normal pace. Until then, just try to bear with me.
Coming up in the future!

Ghosts of Burning Inn #3
Lilacs and Vanilla (new F/F novel)
Delicate Things (an M/M novel)
A new story for the Authors in the City Anthology
A story for the Winter Solstice Anthology

Everything else is being worked on in between.
Take care of yourselves!

An update after a long time!

I know I didn't update very much in June and I'm sorry for that. This wedding is coming and going by so fast. Legally, I am married now so it makes things harder to catch up with. Still, I owe it to people to update now and then. I should tell you that I'm alive. My writing slowed down a bit at the end of June when my husband came around. I still have to think of music to put together for our videos and our dances. I have yet to do that.

Now here's an update of everything that I have so far.

Ghosts of Burning Inn #3: 26K
Patterns & Parallels #4: 24K
The Autumn Key: 24K
Lilacs and Vanilla (new f/f/ romance): 12K

TRA #4 is a mess currently but I'm trying to make it a little less messy right now. My Portman's books are on hiatus until further notice. Ditto with Smoke and Ashes, the conclusion to Sparks and Flames. I'm also hoping that I will try to find some time this week to start Flavors of Love #4 or Cirque Macabre #3. I will try to get back to Operation: Genome #2 as well.

SASS#16 in Norfolk is this weekend so I have some packing to do. I've made all my swag bags now and I just have to put the books away. Then it will be time to decide what to wear because it's going to be hot as hell over there.

Well, that's about all for now. Another update will come soon. Take care, all!
