64k Words – Progress Made This Weekend!

I hit 64k words and provide a longer snippet – can you guess what’s happening?


So I participated in my own little word sprint this weekend in an effort to make up for the fact that I’ve been doing just poetry writing the last handful of days. Thus, a Word Sprint! Nearly 4k words today and still going! I wanted to post a snippet of what I’ve been doing, but like I’ve said before, it’s getting more and more difficult to post snippets without ruining big surprises or giving away earlier-in-the-story ones! Anyways, I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and that NaNoWriMo is treating you well! Remember to subscribe and like on my blog and on Facebook to get the most out of my writing!

60k – NaNoWriMo Goal Halfway there!

60k words reached! Halfway to my NaNoWrimo Goal!


As promised, here’s today’s second post with a TINY snippet. These chapters are harder to share considering that more and more important things are happening! Needless to say, these are some characters you haven’t met very much before. Need to remember who they are? Go back and reread your copy of Steel Praetorian. Don’t have one? Go fix that problem today! For now, I’ve hit 60,000 words! So happy! We’re halfway to our goal of 80,000 words. If I can do even better that would be awesome. I’ve noticed that I’ve had a lot harder time being motivated to type the novel, and I wonder if it’s the distraction of both school and class now. Anyone find some ideas for making yourself type or carve out time?

Anywho, enjoy the snippet and be sure to subscribe and like for more!

Today’s writing – 58k!

Today’s writing – hitting 58,000 words!


Today’s writing has been brief, but I managed to get to 58,000 words. Today’s writing focused on Aurelia, the princess that everyone loves to hate (or perhaps, just loves). My goal for NaNoWriMo is 80,000 words, so just 22,000 to go. I can do this! Remember to subscribe to the blog if you like getting these snippets, poems, and more! Read the snippet after the break!

56k and We’re On The Way!

56k, only 24k to go before reaching our NaNoWriMo2017 Goals!

Salve! Welcome back just in time for another snippet of today’s writing. As a reminder, be sure to subscribe to the blog for updates and faster-than-the-speed-of-downloads emails whenever I post! Also, I don’t send spam-style emails, so why not subscribe! I’ve reached 56,003 words today on the train as I’m traveling back from NYC. There’s definitely something about a nice train car and the slow rocking to help one type.

Or sleep.

Or both.

But fear not, typing I’ve done! Enjoy the snippet after the break!

How To – Using Google Documents to Plan Your Novel

Learn more about how I use Google Docs to outline my novels!

Hi everyone!

I briefly wanted to tell you about how I’ve been planning my last two novels. Ever since I started writing, I’ve been planning my novels out. Given the fact that I have to juggle story lines that evolve over several books, plus characters and technologies that don’t exist, one would except the need to have an outline or story map.
