Tumblr Tuesdays

17th July 2013 | 1 Comment

Hands on Keyboard: July 16, 2013 I don’t even know how to begin describing this last week but here it goes. Last Monday I entered Chrysalis into a Secret Agent Contest and got chosen by the random number generator. From Tuesday to Friday other participants, along with an Anonymous Agent offered critiques on the first 250 words. [...]

Tuesday’s Duck Arraigning

2nd July 2013 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: July 2, 2013] “I read Chrysalis,” my father says to me this afternoon. He’s the first of the three people I’ve let into my written soul to get back to me. “It needs more words.” I know exactly what he means. I’m well acquainted with my inability to physically describe characters and setting. [...]

a year’s worth of Tuesdays

I have big news. Five minutes ago, I finished my Chrysalis edits. This is why I’m a day late for my post. Last night I wasn’t done and I was so close and I decided I wasn’t stopping for anything. I’m actually ready to let people read my book and tell me what they think. If [...]

Tuesday’s Pitch Madness Prep

5th March 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s five days into March and I’m certain I should be spazzing about something. I have intense goals scattered all over the place. I’m preparing for my next sash level in Kung Fu. I’m in charge of my ward’s Easter Program–Music and Speakers. In connection to Easter I decided to embark on a massive origami [...]

Tagline Tuesday

[Hands on Keyboard: February 26] I’m hard at work training for my next Kung Fu sash level. It will be green and pretty and symbolize so much awesome. It’s physically demanding and because this particular test requires sparring, emotionally and mentally draining as well. I feel like I’m fighting to keep all of my parts [...]

Tuesday’s Romantic Statistics

18th September 2012 | 4 Comments

Hands on Keyboard [September 18, 2012] I am conquering my Editing Block, much the same way I conquered my Writing Block. Slowly. My biggest obstacle is my writing sickness. I love it too much and would rather write character histories than fix the scene I’m writing character histories for. Let me put my writing sickness [...]

[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 [...]
