Jonah, Teaser Tuesday

Teasing you this Tuesday

So, I got sick–the flu sucks. I got my flu shot but it didn’t save me though. I must have gotten one of the strains that I was vaccinated for. But because misery likes company, I gave it to my husband and now he’s super sick. My sister is still holding strong, the girl has the constitution of an ox. I hope she remains that way because it really sucked.

All that said, I didn’t have a lot of time to work on Jonah last week between DayQuil shots. But I had a hypomanic recovery and I’ve written five chapters since Saturday. My goal today is only 3000 words and I haven’t started yet, so I have to get going. Yoinks!

Here is your Teaser Tuesday!

WIP Wednesday – Elf It!

Started working on Jonah again and I’m chugging away at it like The Little Engine That Needs More Coffee. I have a little WIP Wednesday typo for you today, though. I apparently can’t write ‘eff that’ with the nearing holidays without an elf showing up.

Taking Up My Slack Thursday

I’m behind and literally treading water. In case you missed it, my life got crazy and I soon followed. I just got back from a trip home to my family because my dad was badly injured. I returned home to San Diego, read JONAH only to sink into a depressive dismay that demanded immediate action to improve where I was going with my story. It smells like a dung heap.

WIP Wednesday – Jonah’s a jerk

I’m still struggling with this manuscript. Won’t lie, I just don’t have the asshat, Jonah’s voice. I’m so ready to can him and write someone else’s book. But, in the meantime, I do have some images that I’m using for inspiration.

That’s what I have for you this week, two of my inspiration images.

New Release, Somnolence, Trace

TRACE IS HERE!

It’s release day! I’ve waited all summer for this! I’ve been getting great feedback on this book. So excited.

It is, however, written by Miss Ali and I will always one-click her work. She’s that good and the journey Trace and Vivi take us on is messy, yo. Messy. It is also beautiful, musical, truthful, traumatic. Just. Like. Life.

Booknook Reviews

I enjoyed this continuation of the series with Trace and Vivi.

Just WIP it. To Mow or To Moan

Yes! To mow or to moan, that is the question. I apparently think that they mow when they get sexy. A little gardening is appropriate during intimate times, perhaps? Maybe, man or ladyscaping?

I just wrote the book, I’m not sure what the sentence means!

Maybe in this book Lizzy’s a gardener, she could have take up landscaping arts. You can’t know if I don’t!

WIP Wednesday: Plotting and Outlining

First, let me just tell you… I could not spell outlining to save my life and had no idea how I was spelling it wrong until I realized I left out the ‘line’ part.

My brain is fried.

So JONAH is next, and I start his book on Monday. I have a schedule already set out for the rough draft. I have August 15th to the 31st to write it. Then, I go into my second draft which is from September 1st – October 1st. It then goes to the betas before I get it for the final draft.

Right now… plotting and outlining.

KILL. ME. NOW.
