Life Update #1

So it’s been a while since I posted anything here and I figured it was time to do some updates on what’s going on.

I wish I had a bunch of changes to report, but unfortunately not much has been going on. I’m in my third semester of my creative writing degree which is cool. Classes have been challenging but helpful and I’m excited to see where it takes me and my writing next.

Another positive thing, I currently have 2 full requests and a large partial out with agents. While this is great and wonderful, it also brings with it a new level of fear and insecurity to my work. Will they like it? Will they think it’s trash? I half expect them to come back and tell me the idea just doesn’t work and I need to scrap it and move on.

I know this isn’t a realistic expectation, but one I can’t help but think of anyways.

But who knows, I could get an email today asking for a phone call, life is funny that way sometimes.

As far as current work goes, I’m in a bit of a slump.

I haven’t put any words towards my next books in forever and it’s depressing. I need to set a solid goal for getting the first draft done and really work on making sure I hit that mark but I have no idea what would be considered realistic. I’ll have to think on it.

That’s about all I have for now. I’m gonna make sure to do a better job of keeping things updated here and make sure I give this site some love a little more often.

Thanks for tuning in and I’ll see ya next time.
