Organization in Writing

Hey all! I’m getting back into the swing of things. This month has not been the best in terms of writing. Maybe I bit off more than I could chew, or maybe I was just a little burned out. Not sure. I’m starting to get back into it though.

Exciting news – I’m going to be at Odyssey Con this weekend! And for the first time ever, I’m going as a panelist. I’m usually pretty shy and reserved when it comes to talking in front of people, but maybe a geeky topic will make me less anxious. I’ll be out there on Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be on a Harry Potter panel, two writing panels, and I’m running an Overwatch panel all by my lonesome!

Also! Patreon suggestions for the month of April close on the 26th! The post with all the information can be found: HERE! Check things out~

Anyway, the topic of today’s post is organization in writing. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to talk about but never really felt qualified to do so. I’m not really good at the whole organization thing, at least in general. There are a series of tweets about me forgetting character details or losing information on them. I’m totally a professional. But here goes!

on productivity, novels, and realizations

Hey all! Things are going pretty well out in my neck of the woods, though I guess it’s been awhile since I worked on this post as, well, I started it in February. I had laryngitis around then, really nasty case, I sounded great. Now though? Depression is kind of kicking my ass.

But I’ve been hard at work these past few months! In fact, despite having fewer days, February has had more words written during it than January did. So I think that means I’m getting back into the swing of things. March was really great in terms of productivity as well – I even published Opus Crescendo! April has been a bit rockier because of conventions, depression, and various other things.

Productivity, novels, and realizations though. That’s the topic today. It’s pretty broad, and I’m pretty sure that I had other things in mind when I started writing this. Unfortunately, my short term memory is crappy and I didn’t write down what I intended to go through. So now you guys get today’s interpretation of this blog.

Camp NaNoWriMo: APRIL EDITION

Hey all! It’s been a bit since I checked in, hasn’t it? March has been incredibly busy and I’m having trouble believing that it’s already the 20th. I went to NakaKon in Missouri earlier this month and had a blast. It was great going around with two of my best friends and, in general, being huge nerds. I also found out that I can write 7 handwritten pages in an hour when I really feel like it. Thank you Iron Fic for teaching me that!

A big thing happening at the end of this month (MARCH 29th to be specific), is the Opus Crescendo Online Release! Join me in celebrating the release of Opus Crescendo, my fourth book. There will be giveaways, Q&As, and much more! The link is for the Facebook event, which is where all of the aforementioned things will be happening. Feel free to spread it around. Sharing is caring!

I’ve also been very caught up in my writing as well as playing Overwatch. Not every day that I sit down to write a fanfic for a friend (as payment for a few things) that’s supposed to be 2500 words and wind up with over 9000 words of pain and suffering~

And sins of a cybernetic empire continues to update basically on schedule.

Basically, things have been busy.

My Patreon hit it’s first stretch goal this week too! I just about started crying from happiness, I’m very flattered and touched when people pledge to my campaign. With $100/month coming in now, a series of one shot stories about each of the Opera in my Opus series will be written. The stories are going to be PATREON EXCLUSIVE, so if you’re interested, be sure to check out my Patreon~

ANYWAY…
