Hard Work Pays Off!

I’m so happy to say the semester is almost over. I can see the finish line! And this is the video where you get to hear me rant about my life! Yes, I was crazy enough to take 21 credits in one semester. And I’m going to have to keep taking lots of credits to graduate early. Wish me luck!

Will My Writing Get Better?

I really tried not to rant too much in this video…

Listen to my reading of my latest writing! http://bit.ly/2f0tYnS

We all know the more you practice something, the better you get. Same goes for writing. I’ve published two novels, so over the years not only has my writing style changed, but so has the quality of writing. I look back at Essence and realize how far I’ve come as a writer. And Essence not being up to par with my current writing isn’t a bad thing! A little embarrassing maybe, but it shows how hard I’ve worked. And it just makes me that much more excited to publish my new novel!

What am I Writing? || NaNoWriMo 2016

Have you been wondering what I’ve been up to while you’ve all been writing away for NaNoWriMo? While I’m not writing a 50,000 word novel in a month, I am writing a novel. A novel that I’ve talked about only a little bit here on YouTube. So far the writing is going great, so today I’ll share the first few pages with you. Enjoy!

Essence Virtual Reading || Chapter 2

Chapter 1: http://bit.ly/2fxIMrG

About Essence:
Emma’s parents think she is dead.

It started with a shift in atmosphere. The forest greeted Emma with starting force. At first she couldn’t move her limbs, and then her vision was rendered useless, paralyzed to the forces within the forest. The voices came in a dream at first, commanding her against her will deeper into the forest. After months of fighting for control, it took only one moment to lose her human life forever. Now she is nothing more than an Essence, watching as her life unfolds without her.

Kick Back and Relax During NaNoWriMo?

I cross my heart I am not going to abandon you all this NaNoWriMo season! I LOVE NaNoWriMo! I mean, it’s national novel writing month! What’s not to love about that? But since I have some intense rewrites to do, I won’t be able to post a crazy amounts of videos for you guys. On the bright side, I have TONS of videos I’ve made for all of you in the past years about NaNoWriMo, and just writing in general!

Here’s a link to my NaNoWriMo playlist: http://bit.ly/2eCyKqC
