Changed mind

I decided to go with a much more simple cover image for my novel. I will be posting an image when I complete drawing it up. Stay tuned.

Keeping to it

I find it nearly impossible to keep up with daily tasks from bed, so being sick can take quite the toll on things. Now I am trying to get back on task, luckily I have my Daily schedule! Looking at the past week I've missed a couple days of writing, Photoshop lessons, sketching and anatomy or Gaelic. Now I really need to get caught up. So what am I doing here!

I am 45% complete with the short story, then I will need to get it to someone to read it over and edit it for me. I can't wait to finish off this one so I can get back to Angel. She is waiting impatiently for me to move her along.

Research is a writer's best friend

I have been doing a lot of reasearch on how to get a publisher and get my book published. First step is to get my writing published on the smaller front, such as literary magazines and so that is what I am working on. I am writing a short (10,000 word) story to submit to Prick the Spindle. I currently have 2,734 words down. :)

Chapter 2

I have finished 2 pages in chapter 2 so far, started the wheels in motion for Aingeals transformation and have lots of notes as to what I want to write next. Last night before bed I had an inspiration for a great way to get things going and made myself a note, skipped breakfast this morning to write instead. Munched on some Multi Grain Pringles and drank my coffee with the Peppermint Mocha creamer in it while I wrote.

Chapter 1 Finished!

I have completed the first chapter of my book and it is 9 pages long (6,981 words). I have started working on the second paragraph but I keep getting sidetracked. Need to focus!

Aingeal (angel) is really starting to show her personality and her new boyfriend is going to play a big part in building her up physically for what she plans to become, even if he has no clue as to her alternate persona.

This project is becomming so real to me now that I finished the first chapter. When I first started writing it, I figured it would be one of those things I start but never finish, now however I am commited to finishing it. I am super stoked about this and sure hope I can find a publisher. If not I guess I start by self publishing it on since they offer it free to publish Kindle books there.


I received a box in the mail today and I am SO excited! It was my order from Dick Blick Art Supplies! I picked up a 12" Hardwood Manikin and a Caslon Comic Book Creation Set. I so can't wait to play with my new supplies!

Busy Day

I decided to make myself a Daily Schedule with check boxes so that each day I can check off things as I complete them in the hopes I will stick to my Resolutions. At least for today I did, well except breakfast... Unless coffee counts as breakfast. ;)
