Writing amidst the Busyness of Life

This is how we all write, correct?

If you’re anything like me, you probably have other things going on outside of writing. Sad, right? 😊 Just kidding. We need balance, too. We can’t just live in our happy (or sometimes, not so happy) fictional worlds forever. Be it work, school, family, church – life – it all takes up time. And sometimes, balancing writing with the rest of your life can be difficult.

Authorly Updates

Well, it’s that time again – as you can tell from the title, this is an update on my writing endeavors. Last month, I officially released Unknown, which was so exciting but also quite tiring. It was definitely a dream come true, but I still have a lot to go in learning how to be an author. 🙂 I got that book submitted right before my college semester started, thank the Lord, so now I can focus mostly on school while still balancing writing alongside college.

Launch Week for Unknown 

Welcome to the launch week for Unknown! I am so excited to share this story with all of you guys.

Updates on Unknown and Other Writing/Editing Projects

At the present moment, Unknown is going through the final stages of editing. My wonderful editor/sister/amazing author finished it a few days ago (thank you a million times) and right now, my mom (known in some circles as the “Typo Queen”) is reading through it and combing for the many typos I so often include. (Thank you a million times, too!) So after the Typo Queen is done with her editing, I have one more time through the book, and then it’s off to the races.
