In the Waiting

So the end of the year is fast approaching! I am not where I hoped to be in terms of my writing goals. But I do feel like 2018 really challenged me to grow as a writer, and I have gained new confidence from joining critique groups as I attempt new ink adventures.

Here is 2018's project tally:

  • Published Stealing the Dark Moon
  • Currently revising A Fair Account of Snow White and Rose Red, waiting on illustrations for True Gossamer, and working on audio with narrator for Iffy Magic. Hopefully all three books will be ready by next summer!
  •  Writing new sci fi manuscript, tentatively titled Cosmortalis. I hope to have this done by August 2018. 


I recently discovered music artist Kina Grannis and fell in love with her songs, especially "In the Waiting."

In this song, she realizes that "life is in the waiting:" The tiny minutia, twilights and quiet in-betweens, they all give depth and breadth to our existence. I am still learning the gratitude and peace that comes with this acknowledgement . . . if not the patience!
