Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

It actually feels great to be getting back into the swing of things, especially writing-wise. Though I can feel the remnants of the anaemia still, I am doing so much better. And writing at a proper pace again, which is — to say the… Continue Reading “Getting Back Into the Swing of Things”

End-of-March Writing Update: Ruon Chronicles, Ghost Stories, and Other Stuff

Okay… so that was March flitting by faster than a Will o’ the Wisp… To say that I didn’t do everything I wanted to this March (fiction writing wise) is an understatement.

November writing plans: The Ruon Chronicles and Porselein

Blog header for October writing update

And there goes October whooshing by! I’m very thankful to have finished and published Forgotten before Halloween (more about that over here), but November promises to be a very busy writing month as well. More about that next week, though. #TheMerryWriter During October I’ve… Continue Reading “Final writing update for October”
