#WhitWritesHerNovel: Draft #1 is Done

Six days overdue; however, I got my first draft edited on 1/6/2020. I must say, the sequel was not as bad as I imagined it would be. I can tell that I have improved in my writing, and am happy with the way the story flows thus far. I will start my first rewrite this…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Back Into the Swing of Things

So, with the debut of my newest novel about 2 months in at this point (order copies HERE), I feel like i have taken a decent enough break and am ready to jump back full force into writing up the sequel to Playing with Fire. So far, I have written out the characters and their…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: The Re-Read 

So, I’m noticing things as I read: 1. Not a bad book for my first one…if I do say so myself; and I’m my worst critic. 2. Definitely some things I’m planning on fixing or have fixed along the way (is this a bad thing? Since I’ve already had a proof printed?) 3. The responses…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Are We Ready to Proof?

So I got my proof copy of Playing with Fire today, and I’m experiencing a flurry of emotions.  Most of all, I’m excited. I’m beyond excited and I have no idea how to deal with all this positive energy. Let me tell y’all something about me: When I say I’m an average person, I mean…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: And For Now, We Wait

I just got through putting the finishing touches on the interior and cover for my novel.  I am beyond EXCITED!! I submitted it for review so now I am going to patiently wait to receive a yay or nay on if it is approved.  Then I can order a proof and actually have my first…

#WhitWritesHerNovel:The Wait

So, I’m waiting on one more reader to finish editing before I go make corrections and do one more read. It’s getting so close and it’s crazy. I still can’t believe I wrote a novel!! In the meantime, I need to figure out some illustrations for the cover, make my biography, synopsis of the book,…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Farewell to the First Edit

So, between the busy work schedule and the overall hiatus in general, I have been going full speed on completing the first edit of my novel. I am proud to say that I am almost finished! *breaks out into crazy dance* LOL I had charted scenes that I have completely re-written, taken complete scenes out…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Hiatus and the Thought of a Writing Group

I am kind of upset that I haven’t been able to give my novel the attention it deserves in the last 2 months or so.  It has been a pretty busy couple of months, from working, to being out of town or doing something since the end of April. Needless to say, the writing has taken a…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Did I lose my Writing Steam?

So, I haven’t sat down to write in a while…possibly a couple weeks. Between being sort of busy, and just not having the motivation to do it, I just can’t get my thoughts together.  I feel sort of bad because I love writing and I love my novel, this is a dream for me and I…

#WhitWritesHerNovel: Writing Spaces

What is your favorite place to get lost in your words? Oftentimes, the right writing space usually helps me get into the flow of things.  Some people can write in their favorite café, while others prefer a quiet place like their home, library or a park.  My dream place would be creating my own writing…
