Last week, I shared about my dreams and goals as a writer and how God is bringing those things to fruition. Over the Thanksgiving break, when I had four days off, I wrote approximately 3,500 words a day toward my book, and several blog posts. In the time I was off, I wrote over 15,000 … Continue reading Managing Time to Write
It is crazy to think that my book journey began three years ago. I've learned from several writers that it is normal to take several years to write a first novel. However, I am my own worst critic! As much as it is possible for my first book to be amazing, I need to be … Continue reading Book Update: Coming out of the Darkness
I needed encouragement and my book needed a storyline. At reNEW, God gave me both.

Although I'm the one who wrote the book, my book would not go anywhere if it wasn't for your encouragement and guidance. Ultimately, to God be the glory! To update my followers on my … Continue reading (Quick) Book Update: While I’m Waiting

This is the part where, statistically speaking, I will very likely get several rejection letters. And I'm scared. … Continue reading Book Update: I’m Ready for Rejection (NOT!)
A hearty thanks to those who have already been asking about my book! Your encouragement has given me the strength to move along, and your questions have challenged me to pursue different ideas that I had not considered. My mom has been my editor since I was writing essays in third grade. When I was … Continue reading Book Update: Tweet and You Shall Receive

I've been trying to keep up with my blog, but in reality I have no time or motivation for writing. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE writing. However, I have begun to lose that zeal that I felt when I graduated college. When I graduated, I was full of good ideas. I had no problem … Continue reading How to Write a Good Blog Post
