Writing my first novel

January 2022 –> “Mandy & Mia” the first draft is 53,600 words long and currently being read by my Alpha Reading team!

I am still campaigning for votes for free publishing through SOOP.


November 2021 –> I participated in NaNoWriMo with a 50K word goal to finish the first draft.

I accepted defeat before end of month, but finished the first draft.


July 2021 –> 600 VOTES to go for publishing contract
Current Word Count –> 18,192
First Draft Goal –> 40-50K words
Publishing Goal –> w/SOOP (before I turn 40)


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
