Hey guys! It's been a while. For a mix of personal and writing-related reasons, I haven't really been writing in the last few months, but I'm intent on changing that now.
I haven't completely abandoned writing—I've been workshopping Unveil in a writing group and I'm returning to writing with a totally new perspective and vigor. Here's some updates on me and where my writing is going from here:
Wattpad updates are going to be on hold until early December—maybe even until the holiday season. I want to make sure I have a healthy chunk of writing done so when I do start updating again, I'll have plenty of backup in case I get into a rut again. Consistent updates are important to me.
It has come to my attention that Figment is shutting down and moving to Underlined. I'm not entirely sure if I'll be making the move along with the site—it depends a lot on the structure of Underlined. Stay tuned for more info as I learn more about the transition. If I do end up moving to Underlined, it will be primarily to store my books/post as I write.
I'm working like crazy on the first draft of Unveil right now, and after that I plan on editing it using the critiques from my writing group before submitting it to agents. I'm also thinking about repurposing the Ballet Blog series as a middle grade series and submitting that.
4). Works in Progress
Right now, I'm finishing up Unveil, with Infiltration on the side as my "for fun" project. I hope to finish up both in the next few weeks. I hope to get back into The Back of Wednesday at some point, but I'm not sure whether I'll work on that next or Unsaid (Unveil's sequel). It will depend on whether I have time next semester to work on one book at a time or two.
Please stay tuned for updates through my blog, my Twitter, and my Figment. I don't think I'll be returning to Wattpad until the holiday season.
