#PitchWars 2017 Wish list

Hello! If you’re looking for my #PitchWars 2017 wish list, please head on over to Allison Ziegler’s blog. We co-mentored this year as #TeamBadPrincess.

Thank you!

The In Between and Synopsis Writing

I am in the strange in between, when my WIP is with critters and I’m not interested in starting a new project. Instead of sitting around, twiddling my thumbs, I’m working on the lovely synopsis. I’m all about using free time wisely.

Incase any of you are in the same spot, I highly suggest checking out Lora Rivera’s checklist. Feel free to catch me on Twitter or send me an e-mail if you need a synopsis writing buddy!

Friday, I’ll have another audiobook review up for you all. Sorry I missed last week, but I was back home for Christmas :)

It’s Mah Birfday!

Well…tomorrow is actually my birthday! I thought about holding a contest or giveaway to celebrate, but the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest is coming up in a couple weeks, so I’m going to send out the gift of laughter to you all instead.

I got this comic in an e-mail from my Dad. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

I’m Giving Up Writing

Just kidding…but it made you look. ;) I mean really, writing isn’t something you can actually give up, is it?

*sigh* I can’t think of a darn thing I want to post about today, so instead, I’m going to post some pictures that will hint as to what my current WIP is about.

Just try to put the hints together, I dare you!

(And NO cheating for those of you who actually know.)

Quality vs Quantity

I believe in my current WIP, but the really interesting thing is that I can’t seem to get the words out. I sit down to write and only 500 words come out. After thinking it through, I realized that it’s okay. Writing 500-1500 words a day is perfectly fine.

It’s quality vs quantity.

With Guardians, I wrote at least 2k a day and finished it in a month, so I get the quantity thing. Every word I write though on this new WIP – I want it to be just the right word, just the right phrasing.

Quality. CP (this WIP) is all about quality writing and I like it like that.

What do you guys think? Do you tend to sway toward quality or quantity?
