NaNoWriMo Week 3 in Review

Week three has gone a lot better for me than one or two. I caught up on all the writing I was behind on and it feels great! I am right on track and I am loving how Zooey Zombie's second story is developing. In the first book it was so short it was just an surface introduction to Zooey and her friends and the situation they're in with her being brought back to life after being a zombie by the "cure".

If you're a writer or author then you probably know about NaNoWriMo, and if you don't you need to check it out. It's such a huge writing motivator! I've participated for years now and it definitely gets competitive when you see all these other writers achieving their goals. You can too!

Dead World is the third and final book in my zombie trilogy Dead Soil. I've been working on this series for six years now so it's bittersweet to bring it to its conclusion. I've grown to love, and sometimes hate, all the characters trying to survive the apocalypse in Northwest Indiana. If you would like to catch up on the series use the links below, but remember all paperbacks purchased through this site are signed and 10% off of Amazon's prices (discount applies to eBooks purchased through this site as well!)

The Importance of Reading as a Writer

As writers and authors, it's perfectly understandable how we can get caught up in our work. Sometimes it takes over and before you know it you've been at it for four hours without a break. Once you're on a roll it's hard to stop! But it's important to find balance in your life. It's ok to take a break to go to the bathroom and eat a meal. The idea will still be there, I promise! And if you're too worried it won't be, write the thought down quick before you walk away. As a sedimentary job, breaks should also include walking around or exercise, and oh yeah we still have families and friends and pets and other responsibilities too. When are we even supposed to find time for reading, the very thing that gave us the idea to be writers in the first place?!

My Riding Journal 2nd Edition and New Cover

My Riding Journal has been updated and now the 2nd edition and new cover is available on Amazon in paperback! I love this journal and I've never used it more than the last two months. I bought my first horse and learned what really goes into horse ownership and riding. That's why the journal needed an update. When I first designed it in 2018 I had only ever leased a horse so I didn't really understand the bond, the connection, the time and the work that went into a horse that was your own.
