Dear Lucky

Dear Lucky, I never would have thought a month after writing a letter to Cappie I would have to write a letter to you. I meant to write sooner, but I needed time. I probably shouldn’t be writing this when I’m emotional. There will likely be a lot of errors, but I don’t care. I …

Dear Cappie

Dear Cappie, It’s been three years. It’s been three years since you died. I remember the day so vividly. I had stayed up all night just so I had more time with you. I couldn’t care less how heavy my eyes felt or how many times I yawned, I didn’t want to waste a single …

NaNoWriMo Round Two!

It’s pouring rain outside, my Facebook feed is flooded with people in their costumes, and I see pumpkins everywhere. NaNoWriMo must be here! NaNoWriMo 2015 was my first year participating in the event. I still can’t believe I wrote a novel in a month. Well, I’m pleased to announce I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo this …

Write, Edit, Read Writer’s Market, and Edit Some More

I bet you didn’t expect to see me back so soon. I intended to take a break from writing, but life had other plans for me. A couple of days after I posted my last blog, I got offered a new writing opportunity with My Trending Stories. I’m all for building my writing resume and …

Tough Times Make Tough People

“Abby, how’s the writing going? You haven’t posted a new blog in a while,” a friend mentioned to me. I guess it has been a while since my last post. Four months. Truth is, I haven’t done much writing. These last few months I’ve gone through depression. I lost interest in the things I loved …

Finish Line is Near

I hope everyone is having a good year so far! It’s a new year and I have two manuscripts. As a Christmas present, my brother is going to pay for a copy editor to edit my manuscript when I’m finished editing it. Before I learned of the copy editor, I wasn’t too focused on one …

NaNoWriMo Conclusion

“I hate writing, I love having written.” ― Dorothy Parker. I’m a little late posting this, but… I did it! I’m a winner of NaNoWriMo! I actually wrote my book in a month. After taking over five years to write my first novel, it seemed nearly impossible to write my next in only thirty days. …

My First NaNoWriMo

It’s about that time of year again! National Novel Writing Month starts at midnight. Writers from around the world will attempt the daunting task of writing a 50,000-word novel in just one month. I’ve never participated in this event…until now. This will be my first year, and I must admit I’m a little scared. My …

Past, Present and Future

“I don’t remember deciding to become a writer. You decide to become a dentist or a postman. For me, writing is like being gay. You finally admit that this is who you are, you come out and hope that no one runs away.” –Mark Haddon. The Past I recently stumbled upon an article about published …

Hey, I’m Swimming Again

I lost sight of the shore. I stopped swimming. The longer I stayed out, the farther I got pulled back. I must not have drowned, though, because here I am. I’m swimming and back on track to reach the shore. Hello world! It’s been a while, huh? Up until about a month ago, I had …
