So much has been going on during the last couple of months! I fill everyone in on my current WIPs, what else I’ve been update, and give s sneak peak at my plans for NaNoWriMo.




Date: Oct 14-20, 2018
What have I been working on?
  1. Researching NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) tours for KOTB.
  2. November Patreon piece
  3. Wrote another Tea Review for my Tier 1 Patrons.
What’s in Edits right now? “Obsession” (but no editing has been done)
Publication Research: No publishers or lit journals researched this week.
Anything submitted? Nothing submitted this week.
Anything Else to Share? I’m amazed I did do anything writing related this week to be honest. This past Saturday (the 20th) was Fall Festival, where I sell a lot of my handknits. I focused mainly on prepping for that.
Plans for the Week:
  1. Finish writing November Patreon story.
  2. Add 10 publishers to my excel spreadsheet.
  3. Pull past trip itineraries for inspiration for novella outlines.
  4. Finish outlines for Novellas 3 & 4 before NaNovWriMo begins. (I know it’s NaNoWriMo, but since I’ve attempting 3 novellas, I tweaked the title a bit.)


These are NOT the inserts I’m using for 2019. These lovely inserts belong to my coworker who let me film a walk thru of the design.

Date: Oct 1-7, 2018

What have I been working on?

  1. “Obsession” edit 4, if you can believe it! I added some clarification time frames to a part of the story that my beta readers said was confusing.
  2. Added 151 words to Candle Making section of the Homestead Adventures book.

What’s in Edits right now?

CWP4AM edit 1 is still incomplete. I started it, just haven’t finished it.

Publication Research:

Added 6 potential publishers to my Publisher excel spreadsheet. Two of which ask for travel related pieces. I’m thinking about taking CWP4AM and writing a new version from a foodie perspective.

Anything submitted?

Nothing submitted, but I’m brainstorming a new travel piece to submit. See above.

Anything Else to Share?


Plans for the Week:

  1. Add 5 more publishers to the Excel spreadsheet.
  2. Work on Character outlines for Traveling Knitter Series.
  3. Finish writing my piece for my Creative Writing Group.
  4. Begin reworking the Italy trip (CWP4AM) into a food story for 2 different journals.
  5. Work on “Baking Competition” Round 2.


Whoo! September sure flew by! How did everyone else do on their monthly goals?
