A Writer’s Journal: March ’21

While my novella has a LONG way to go until it’s ready for submission, I’m enjoying this process so much. I love the main character and how she moves through this world.

2021 Writing Intentions and Goals

I work best when I write a draft and use that as a template for an outline to help me in future drafts…I just have to accept that this is how I approach a new project, but stay open to changes in my writing process as I mature as an author.
