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!





Camp NaNoWriMo

Yes! I’ve joined for the first time camp nanowrimo this summer. I’m crazy for doing so now, but hey why not?

I mean while I’m editing by day I can me writing by night? (that should be my tagline). So, heres the plan to complicate my life even further than it is. I’ll be still taking care of Destiny of the Azurine  #revisions and #edits, at night (like my awesome tagline suggests) I’ll be writing Charity of the Azurine.

Yes, this is absolutely insane! I’m totally freaking out! Not really, it’ll be fun and exciting to get this done. I won’t be able to do NaNoWriMo in November this year, but I may be able to do so November of 2017. Who knows, maybe I’ll start the third book then.

Keep Writing (I’m editing)


Lately I’ve been…

I haven’t made a formal post in so long! It’s good to be back #amwriting and #amediting. I’m currently on vacation after a semester of papers and one huge 15 page research paper.

I’ve been #editing  a lot lately. I finished the Chapter 3 edits. For those of you who don’t know, I have 10 chapters to Destiny of an Azurine  with 10,000 words in each chapter. (No, I don’t know what possess me to write 10,000 words per chapter.) After editing the first 2 chapters, I’ve broken them up considerably. So, I’ve successfully #edited and #revised the first 30,000 words of the original 100,000 word draft I finished in 2013. (It only took 3 months to write).waterpark_cabbagebeach

Since I’m on vacation, I decided to take a break from those edits. I know, I shouldn’t. I do fall in love with my book each time I open the next chapter which is my problem. I decided to write the next book of the Azurine series. The title of the next book will be, Charity of an Azurine.

I may be getting  ahead of myself, but I figure I should write down the direction I want this book to go before I forget it all.  So, yes, #amwriting while on vacay, but #amediting once this vacation is over!

I promise!

Keep Writing!
