Writing my first novel

April 2021 –> I had no writing goals entering 2021, I just need to make progress. Writing words has been difficult, so I’ve been doing something else I enjoy: editing. Not only editing the beginning of my own novel, but also on the side as service for other creatives. I have been looking for a writing mentor or guide (writing and publishing a novel is all new to me) and while I may not have found a professional to help me, I have found support in the writing community, bookstagramers, and other creatives on Instagram. I think we are all professionals in our own area of expertise.

Publishing my novel will be one of my biggest learning curves, but I have been introduced to a whole new publishing platform through Something Or Other Publishing. SOOP is a new opportunity that is out there waiting for me as a new and upcoming author.

My book idea has been accepted and is available for voting at Something Or Other Publishing.

Please take the time to vote for my novel today!


August 2020 –> While I have been trying to get words written, it has been difficult with the coronacoaster surrounding us. My kindergarten-aged daughter will be home-schooled/ virtual-schooled (whatever I can do-schooled) as I am also a part time essential employee, with another daughter under the age of two. So, like I said I am trying to get words written when I can, and lately that is almost never. I’m glad my publishing goal is flexible and many (many?) years away…

Currently –> First Draft is 7 chapters long and 11,691 words

End Goal –> 18 chapters long and at least 30,000 words

Publishing Goal –> Before I’m 40 (and if you know the answer to that, I’d like you to consider joining my beta-readers list!) Contact me HERE.
