It’s been hard balancing my writing journey and my personal life. I’ve lost a lot of momentum and progress in my projects. I wondered what could I do to get myself back on track? For these reasons, I created the “My Recent Work Update” blog posts.
I created my recent work update with the following goals in mind.
- To blog consistently
- To revitalize my productivity
- Keep me accountable for my actions
- Place my writing projects to the forefront of my mind
- Help me get back to organizing my day and carving out time to write.
- Give you, my reader, and even better look behind the scenes of my writer’s life.
I haven’t picked an exact date of when I will post the monthly updates. I plan to upload my post in the last week of the month. Without further ado, here is everything that’s been happening this month.
Amorphous is a paranormal romance novel about a forbidden love between an apprentice and his master.
I have been teetering back and forth about dropping this project. I’m sure you can guess what I decided (if it is not clear, I am going to continue writing this novel).
Finishing this novel has now become one of my goals for 2022 because I love the characters and the world I built. Before my burnout (and real life getting in the way), I immensely enjoyed writing the first draft. The first draft is complete, but the plot needs tweaking.
I plan to reread my progress and outline what scenes I need to finish for the second draft.
Vicious Circles Series, Book 1
Vicious Circles is a paranormal series about a college-bound student forced into a magical criminal organization.
I’ve planned for this series to have six books in total. I’ve been working on this project for a while. The story’s plot and its characters had gone through many rewrites. I am currently in the heading towards the middle of act one.
I plan to pick up at the scene I left off and continue writing.
Projects On Hiatus
The Dragon and his King
The Dragon and his King is a short story about a deal made between a young king and the dragon meant to kill him. I had hoped to finish this by the end of March, but my current project and goals will not allow it. For now, this story will be on hiatus and revisited later in the year. My goal is to write between 10,000 to 20,000 words.
Because of my busy schedule, I had put the newsletter on a temporary hiatus without notice. I’ve been regretting it ever since. I want to rebuild my newsletter over upcoming months.
A Simple Guide to Organizing Your World Building
I will put this blog series on hold in favor of finishing my major projects in a timely fashion. I will revisit this at a later date when I have more freedom in my schedule.
This is all the updates I have for my recent work update. See you next month.
