Progress Post: Edit No. 3

So, on January 24, 2017 I finished book 1 of my Zombie trilogy. I just finished my 3rd edit, and I would like to do a 4th edit before I send it off to a professional editor. I am currently at 70,635 words for book 1, and I would like to cut more unnecessary things out. I have finally realized that getting your idea out is only half the battle.

Writing is honestly RE-writing!

Everything is going good with me taking my writing more seriously. I made a list of projects I am currently working on, what I need to finish, and ideas I need to start. I have a list of 19 projects!

I don't set deadlines because I don't like the pressure. This is honestly the reason why I have not released anything just because I know how I work, and it would/could be FOREVER before I would release another novel.

That is changing. I make myself write everyday, if not every other day, and I am seeing progress. I aim to finish Chapter 6 on book 2. I will have a Playlist coming next for you guys. I don't/can't listen to music while I write, only when I am editing. Do you listen to music when you write?

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
