[Hi, I’m Alive] Writing Life Updates July 2021

Yo *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

Here’s a breakdown of what I’ve been up to…

THE PERSONAL

It’s been a rough few months. I’ve made some tough decisions. Battled health issues. Dealt with the ground constantly shifting beneath my feet. Things are calming down but there’s a lot to sort through and staying focused on writing is a battle in and of itself (and one that I’m getting better at, finally).

THE PROFESSIONAL

It’s nearing the one-year anniversary of my YA debut YOUR HEART AFTER DARK. I is planning stuffs.

Also, I’m exploring ways to improve my craft, add to my educational background, and level-up overall as a professional writer. This involved applying for a SOMETHING SOMETHING. If I get accepted, you’ll know via a very public outpouring of gratefulness. If not, I’ll binge on take-out sushi and sob myself to sleep in private.

THE WRITERLY

For the first time ever, I tried writing a short story. There was a certain criteria to follow because it was for a competition. The entire process taught me how phenomenally horrible I am at writing short stories. Dire improvement is needed.

I’m gaining steam with the YA fantasy I’ve been working on. When I really get into the thick of it, I may be missing in action for a while. Then you’ll see me screaming on Twitter the day I finish the first draft.

Aaand that’s all for now. I hope I have good news to share with you soon.

Stay safe :・゚✧
