Ensign’s Log, Entry 15: April Month Map and 2016 Writing Goals Update

A few things to talk about today, all related to my writing. 2016 started out very strong in January–I made a lot of progress with Upgrade. February had its moments, although the ultimate result was less than impressive. March made a good comeback, though more in terms of other things …

Ensign’s Log, Entry 13: Final March Month Map Update!

Well, as you can tell from the spread of bunnies, I didn’t quite make it halfway through my month’s goals. Still, I did far better this month than I did in February. I’m not going to berate myself for not getting more done–you can drive yourself crazy with what ifs …

The title says it all. As of sometime late Tuesday night, the first draft of Upgrade is complete and off to be critiqued by friends, family, and my fellow Scribophiles. Am I relieved? Yes. The last couple of weeks were a stressful bundle of writer’s block and frustration, but the …

Ensign’s Log, Entry 7: January Month Map Update!

Although it doesn’t look like I’ve made much progress, I have actually made it 14 out of an estimated 18 chapters into finishing the first draft, I’ve revised the first 8 chapters, and posted the first 8 chapters. Perhaps I should have filled in the dashes to reflect this, but …
