Tuesday’s Home Stretch

12th June 2012 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: June 12, 2012] My post next week will be more exciting. Right now I’m approaching the last arc of new!Chrysalis and my heart is pounding as I work on destroying Raquel and Brandon’s world. Oh, and I wrote 21,392 words last week. This is almost as much as I wrote during my Writing [...]


Tuesday’s Fire

5th June 2012 | 2 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: June 5, 2012] I feel like I’m in this magical secret cave where only good and giddy things happen to me. I wrote 14696 words this week and I’m not including the 1600 words I wrote on Friday because I threw them out and replaced them with better, more special words. I don’t [...]


Slaying Tuesday’s Blocks

29th May 2012 | 2 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: May 29, 2012] Remember how a month ago I couldn’t do anything but whine about how pathetic it was that Chrysalis was kicking my butt? You probably blocked it out because whiny Gwynne was whiny. 15,356. That’s my word count this week. Excuse me while I take a moment to bask in my [...]


Once Upon a Tuesday

22nd May 2012 | 2 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: May 22, 2012] Contains spoilers for ABC’s Once Upon a Time Also, a bit of a rant Fellow HoKers, I had a majorly productive week. I wrote everyday but Sunday and my word count came to 7890 words, all of it in Chrysalis Book 1 even! However, while it was productive, I’m finding that [...]


Avenging Tuesday

8th May 2012 | 7 Comments

Hands on Keyboard: May 8, 2012 It’s probably too soon to say I’ve conquered my block with Chrysalis, but I’m into chapter 5 and I I wrote over 8000 words this week. I forced myself to write inside Book 1 and not Book 6 although I did do some prewriting for Book 4 but it was only 1000 [...]


Filtering Tuesday’s Feedback

6th March 2012 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: March 6, 2012] Not going to talk about the amount of Not!Writing I did this week. I don’t think it put me behind too much so I’m not going to restructure my goals. April 1st, here I come. However, this last week I’ve had several amazing opportunities to practice my zen approach to [...]


Slow Monday

14th November 2011 | 0 Comments

(My Weekly HoK Post!) On November 1st, I entered my query for Chrysalis into a contest. Winners got manuscript requests from the agent holding the contest and everyone else got a critique explaining on why she would pass on the contestant’s project. You could even participate if you’d been rejected by her before. It took her a week [...]


Back to Reality on Monday

7th November 2011 | 2 Comments

(My HoK Post ^_^) I don’t think I can say enough how much I loved my writing retreat. While I’ve had a lot of fun and I do enjoy life, the retreat was probably the most fun I’ve had since discovering what I want to do with my life. Overall, I wrote close to 25,000 words. [...]


Being Afraid on Monday

3rd October 2011 | 0 Comments

(HoK Post!) I don’t want to talk how lj has not been my friend and keep losing everything I try to write. This is why you did not have a Friday challenge. I do want to talk about writing 13,000 words in the last two weeks. I’m going to preen for a moment. Preen My most exciting [...]


Remembered Monday
