Looking back on February…

Posted March 2, 2017 by Kelly Apple in Forgotten Monsters, Grimwood, Writing / 0 Comments

Dammit, February, why you gotta be so short? 28 days isn’t enough for me. I need more. MOAR!

Enough with the craziness, right? Let’s see what February handed us. Or me. What it handed me. Or, I guess, what I did with it. Because I did stuff. WRITING STUFF. (I’ve had a lot of coffee today. You probably can’t tell.)

So. February saw me finish the first draft of Cursed Lives, the 5th Grimwood book, and start Cursed Heart, the 6th and FINAL Grimwood tale. Between those, I also finished a short story about soul collecting and got a BIG jump on the 2nd book in the sci-fi series I started back in January. For the record, once I finish the as-yet-untitled sci-fi book, I’ll jump back to Cursed Heart to get that knocked out.

I can’t seem to help myself from working on multiple projects at once.

Deep, Forgotten Monsters #2, came out at the end of the month, and Dream, Forgotten Monsters #3, is up for preorder. As per my usual MO, the preorder price is .99, so now’s the best time to put that order in for some monster lovin’.

Now it’s back to the writing cave for me. These abandoned space stations don’t write themselves, you know.

Looking back on January…

Yoooouuuuu guys. Where did January go? It felt both RIDICULOUSLY unending and like it blew by in the blink of an eye. As my little niece would say “NO LIKE!” Whatever, right? We made it through another month. More words. Another series started. It’s all good. Anyway. January saw the release of the first Forgotten […]

Looking back on November…

November, man. November. I’m a little confused as to how we’ve reached the end of it already. I mean, wasn’t it just June or something? WHAT DID I DO IN NOVEMBER? you ask. Good question. I wrote. A lot. A lot lot. No releases this month, but I finished a series that will be coming […]

NaNo Update: Week 4

Gonna be honest, I don’t really know what I wrote on last week. Since I finished all the things I had planned on finishing, I’ve been sort of playing around with a little of whatever catches my fancy. Snippets of things here, little scenes there. It’s a mad jumble, but I not unhappy with it. […]

NaNo update: Week 3

Yeah, so, fair warning, I’m kinda drunk on my accomplishments at the moment so this might end up rambling and unpunctuated. BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DO CRAZY SHIT. Just kidding about the crazy shit thing. But I did write a lot. In fact, I’ve written a lot this whole month. More than usual […]

NaNo Update: Week 2

Week 2 ended up being a crazy productive week for me writing-wise. I’m a couple days ahead for the month at this point, which is a good thing because if life happens to throw me for a loop at any point, I have a bit of a built in cushion. Stats: Possessed (working title) – […]

NaNo update

I’m pleased to say that I’m on track after week 1 of NaNoWriMo. I’ve finished book 2 in the Forgotten Monsters series (YAY!) and started on a little, unplanned story because I needed something to write on before starting book 3. Stats: Deep (Forgotten Monsters #2) – 7,337 words (completed) Grimwood Day in the Life […]

Here’s to starting the month off strong!

For all those participating in NaNo 2016, may you hit your word counts every day! I’m starting off the month with book 2 in the Forgotten Monsters series. My overall goal is to complete books 2-4 in the series, plus whatever else strikes my fancy. (Should I pick up one of my dangling stories and […]
