What's My Writing Process? (author tag!)

Hello, faithful blog readers. It’s been a while since I have posted on here, but a lot is going on.
 
First, I have finished the manuscript for Surreal 2, and it’s in the editing/publication process.
 
Second, I am now working on more sequels, but the details are coming in a moment.
 
This entry will be a little different from my usual delightful complaining. I’m participating in a sort of blog-tag with some author friends of mine. We do this to wake each other up and ask that they step away from the manuscripts to discuss the technicalities with the world.

DAYDREAMER and "Loralee and the Green" on their ways to your e-reader!

Exciting stuff happening! 

I have officially finished both my new clean young adult novel, DayDreamer, and my short story for an amazing, creepy, exciting anthology called Linger: Seven Tales of Why Spirits Stay. 

For the anthology cover, I was completely blown away when I first laid eyes on it. It's beautiful, chilling, and makes your imagination fly off the handle. You really must pick this up when it gets released - these 6 other authors are creative, intelligent, and made me into their instant fans.

YA BOOK NAME CHANGE!

Since I am completing my rough draft for my first YA book, "DreamWeaver," I have decided that it ultimately makes more sense to change the name.

This is a little odd for me. For months, in my head I would always think of this book as "DreamWeaver." I use this world to reference this book to my family and publisher. But as I am changing the paranormal aspect of this world, many of the details I have come up with don't jive very well with that title.

This book will now be called "Day Dreamer." I am going to work on it right now.

DreamWeaver Status

Less than 5,000 words to go! I've almost reached my word-count goal for DreamWeaver. So excited! 

I did enough work today. It's 9:00 at night. I'm exhausted and going to bed. 

Oh, and if you follow my Twitter account, you already know that for no apparent reason, yesterday I wrote the prologue for an entirely new series that I hadn't even planned for. 

Fun stuff, but I'm not planning on actively working on it for a while. 

Good night, everyone.

Progress Report

My young adult novel is over 40,000 words now, which translates into being almost 70% complete - for the skeleton rough draft, anyway.  I just have a few more snags to figure out for the story.
 
Yesterday I also worked on a short story romance, but I don't know what I'm going to do with that yet.
