Progress Post: Trilogy Now Series

I didn't really think I could do it, but I did it. It's no secret: I don't plan or outline when I am working on my novels. My zombie trilogy will officially not be a trilogy. It will actually be *5* books. Well, 4 and a novella. I'm excited! Every plot twist, the character interaction, dialogue, I just love it all! I've been working on this series since 2013, I know. I hate deadlines. I don't like working under pressure. Yes, it may let me drag my ass a little too much and for far too long, but I like my results. When I force myself to write, it's horrible. I don't like it. I would rather have 100 good pages and chisel away, than to have 200 pages of crap because I wrote to write. Does that make sense?

I'm winding down on book 3 right now. I am currently working on Chapter 29, and I kind of know how I want Chapter 30 to go, but I definitely know how I want the book to end. Don't ask why I'm revealing the last book title in the series. With a definition like that, though, I am going to really have to bring it, and make sure the content fits to the title. I'm excited about the challenge.

I have been eager to get of out the YA category and start working on some NA projects, but I am so vested into this series, and I love the characters so much now. I almost don't want to turn my back on them and finish the series off. I won't move on to the next phase until I am completely finished with every single book. What does that mean? It means I have no thoughts of sending my works off to be professionally edited any time soon.

I'm going to continue to work on this Zombie project, and hopefully move on to another project this year. I will spend the rest of 2018 getting my arsenal of projects ready, so that when I finally do hit the scene, I'm ready. I can just release, and focus on finding what makes me tick with writing professionally and making the big leap into become a full fledged Indie Author.

I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head, but I work on a one track mind. I can't work on multiple projects at once. Kudos to those who can, I am a little envious. I have a lot of unfinished projects that I need to revisit and finish, or move on with my next idea. Witches are supposed to be next. Yes, Witches.

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?
