NaNoWriMo2017, #writingtothemusic, and DOA pledge.

It’s been a hot minute. I’ve been editing, revising, and writing here and there just not as much I use to because…well, life. One thing I’ve been doing this summer was blogging on my Writing to the Music site because I really love music. I still love discovering new artist very similar to those I’ve blogged about. I’ve created a playlist on Spotify since my iTunes account is under my name and not my pen name.

I’m a NaNoWriMo 2017 participant this year. I’m not sure how on earth I’m going to juggle this, but I think that’s the point. I’m going to finish the revised draft of Destiny of an Azurine (DOA). I’ve been editing and revising here and there, but not consistently. So, November is the month to do so. (I plan to revise Charity of an Azurine during Camp NanoWriMo.)


I pledge the whole month of November to completing Destiny of an Azurine. I promise to devote my mornings and evenings to this project. My username on NaNoWriMo is amayawrites. You can find me and we can be buddies and get through this month together.

It’s Nov. 1st let’s get writing!




Week 1: Campfire Word Count

fire-cooking-outdoors-camping.jpgThe first week camp wasn’t too bad. I’ve written 10,235 out of my 25,000 word goal. Yay! Perfect start! I have 14, 765 to go. I wanted to set it to 50,000 words, but I know I don’t have that kind of time, so it’ll be my unwritten goal.

While I have you sitting around this cozy, camp fire, here’s what’s going on. There are many new characters popping into Sariah’s life and more secrets, suspense, and  revelations she encounters while sifting through her family’s history. She’s conflicted with herself in this novel trying to balance her own personal crisis as well as her heritage. They’re both intertwined and overlap each other, and she’s trying to understand it all.

I’m having much more fun writing this than I did DOA. It’s like the characters are here, they’ve met, and now its a race for all humanity as we know it! I’m excited, and can’t wait to begin editing this. There are some parts I’m not to proud of, but I left them their and I’ll decide later.

Keep Writing! (Editing by day, Writing by night)
