I breathe a deep sigh of relief, because I’ve finished my first draft of Sky Knights, which is my writing project for the Damsels in Distress collection call with Less Than Three Press.

Right now, the length is about 25 650 words, which will probably end up going down as I revise and edit. I don’t think I’ll need to add any scenes, but I have yet to go through my first editing run-through, so I could be wrong. I am the type of writer who ends up using too many words, so I’ll likely axe quite a few.

Also, I seem to have a fondness for the word “but” and also the word “so” which are really unnecessary words most of the time. Also “and” when it’s at the beginning of a sentence. Anyway, editing will take care of that. I’m usually good for words usage and tone.

Yes, editing is so exciting. We all love editing.

Good luck to all the writers out there on your current project.

Summer Writing Projects


I did a Spring writing project post, and I decided it needed updating, since three months have passed since then.

Projects fully completed since last time:

1. My trans girl unicorn story was submitted and accepted by Less Than Three Press. It ended up being 10.5K, which isn’t that long, but hey, whatever. It was finished, and I finally have a trans* story in my (soon-to-be) published work.

2. My short story Insanity Girls is now available in the Rocking Hard Volume 3 anthology in print format.

What I am working on currently by priority:

1. My submission for Less Than Three’s “Damsels in Distress” f/f collection call is just over 20K words in to a 25K word project, so almost done. I have a beta for that one.

2. I completed my nanowrimo novel (I know, it’s May and I started it in November) and need to revise and edit it before submitting. That one is m/m and almost 60K.

3. I seriously need to keep working on Weekend Girl, which is an m/m story with a British university student studying in America who is cross-dressing in order to get a job as a waitress in a pub. It’s fairly ridiculous, but I don’t give a flying fuck. Cross-dressing.

4. I want to write a story about wendigos eating people. People can tell me that it’s not romantic when people are dismembered, disemboweled and decapitated all they like. Wendigos.

That’s all for now, but once I get a few of these projects finished, I can clear space for some bigger projects. Yes.
