Day 7 – WIPtember 2020

Day Seven – Publishing Path

After many conversations with writers of all stages, I feel comfortable saying that most writers who want to get published believe that they want to be traditionally published. This is also true for me, to a point.

I am currently not in receipt of a project that I would consider finished enough to publish on any forum, much less to ship off to a publisher’s office. Additionally, it is (currently) enough for me to just say “I wrote something!” And then move on to the next project.

I have investigated self-publishing via several types of modes but not having breathing work to share is a deterrent. I know that when I get to a good place, I will probably self-publish initially. I have done enough poking around to know that traditional publishing isn’t really what it seems. With that in mind, I’m keeping my options open. Who knows what will be available when I get any of these dozen semi-close projects polished?

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020

April 1, 2020 – Wednesday

No fooling…It’s that time again!

I will be posting regular motivational content at the #FLXwrimo Instagram, as well as our Facebook group. If you need the links, send me a DM or comment!

April is the 1st of two Camp NaNoWriMo events every year & they are much more laid back than November’s nano event. Pick a goal of any size and smash it!

This time around, I’m editing my nano2019 work-in-progress which is a paranormal fiction novel about a family in the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY (what?! How odd! Haha) that finds its members each challenged by a medical event that blurs the lines of reality, dreamscapes & the afterlife.

If you need an escape from social distancing and Covid19 talk, may I suggest you tell your story?
