If you, or anyone you know, uses Netgalley here is a golden opportunity to get the books for free to read and review! Please remember to post your honest reviews to both Goodreads and Amazon! It makes all the difference.


And so she writes…

It’s hard. It’s just simply hard to write lately. There has been so much to happen in the last Few months, especially the last month and a half, that I wonder if I even have it in me to write anymore. *Dramatic Exhale*

Still, I sat down and began writing today. It’s just not flowing how I would like, but I can go back and modify that. The point is: I’m doing it. I’m writing, because it needs to be done. I suppose sometimes it’s forging ahead, even when hurt and fear are screaming for you to stop. It’s not letting discouragement or the negativity-either within one’s own life or external-bury me at Least 6 feet under…even though it could definitely be the depth of the Earth’s core, in truth.

Being a writer, in any facet, takes a certain resilience, and while dealing with all this unfortunate life-stuff…I will meet my goal to release Hail by the end of this year/early next year. I want to release it by early December, if possible. Which means, based on my Very large outline, I need to get crackin’!

**Motivational memes below**

The Outline…

I have created the draft outline for Hail! It’s still an initial draft and I have a few tweaks to make, a few pieces to implement, but I have it <3! It may seem silly, but this is a major feat for how much I have struggled with what to do, whether to just begin writing or finish fleshing out the outline. The outline won, I tried just writing. This time around, I have had to create my outline. Next step: work out the details for how 4 characters to came to be in the overall story. Final step: determine which ending I will choose for the book…this may came at the end after I have written the majority. That’s how it worked with Blizzard. The story itself took over the air in my lungs, became my breath and vision. My deepest wish is that this will be the case with Hail, to experience that again. Because, I feel that is how the process should go, how writing should turn out.

Writing, when it flows, is just as breathing. I cannot live without it. It is the element my life has been missing for too terribly long, and to know now what it means to actually breathe, to live, how can anyone go back from this experience? Everything must come out of my mind that has been building, and there is so much to share! I of course hope and pray for wild success, if it’s deemed to be part of my life, but if others can enjoy what I produce, all the better.

While creating the outline is essential, I feel that ache to breathe again. It’s something my body craves, desires, requires! Bittersweet release that can be painful and beautiful, and I wonder what that very something is for other people.

Coming soon…Hail.
