All the Novels I Write – the 2018 Edition

All the Novels I Write – the 2018 Edition

Back in November 2016, I shared the list of all the novels I was writing at the time. They were in different stages, from rough outlines to drafts that had been revised many times. Since two years have passed, I think it’s time for an update. So, if you’re curious what many projects I’m currently working on, dive right in!

Novels Aren’t Coloring Books

Novels Aren’t Coloring Books

Some time ago, I read a book series. I think I was already reading a third or fourth book in the series, when I some point I fell the pace slowing down and losing my attention. I checked what page I was at, and I immediately thought: “Oh, it’s page X. It means that there will be the big reveal or the main battle in about ten pages.” That gave me a stumbling pause, killing all my reading pleasure as…

13 Facts About My WIP

13 Facts About My WIP

Back in December I took part in a fun Twitter game which required posting a graphic saying “1 Like = 1 WIP Fact”, and as you can guess, as the likes for the tweet appeared, its author was supposed to post facts about their work-in-progress. I had fun, and got 13 likes, a result I was quite happy with: it gave me enough space to shares some interesting bits of my fantasy novel “By the Pact”, but at the same…

All the Novels I Write

Even though I usually end up focused on one project at the time, it’s never the only one that is brewing in my head.

6 Things That Helped Me Finish My Novel

I’ve finished novels before, but usually it took over a year to get to the end, so when I finished my fantasy novel “By His Will“, in six months going from “nothing” to “135 000 words”, I looked back wondering what made me accomplish it. I knew partially it came from taking part in 365k Club, which somewhat forced me to produce words daily, but this challange is not NaNoWriMo: it doesn’t force writers to work on one novel, and…

Blog Hop: 7/7/7 Challenge

Blog Hop: 7/7/7 Challenge

Back in May, Myk Pilgrim tagged me in a Facebook chain post, challenging me to post 7 lines from the 7th line at page 7 of my WIP. I promptly did so, and after tagging a bunch of my writing friends, I enjoyed having a sneak peak into what they were working on (and I do hope I get to read their finished pieces!). Then I forgot about the challenge, though I still saw the post and tags circulating along…

The Thing That Always Feels Great

The Thing That Always Feels Great

There are things that always feel great. The taste of the first strawberries when the summer starts. Opening a new book by one’s favorite author. The touch of a pillow on the face after a long and tiresome day. No matter how many times experienced, they always feel the same. And finishing one’s writing, be it a short story or long novel, is one of those things.
