IWSG: Nano to Nano






Today we share our insecurities and etc. etc. on the monthly Insecure Writer's Support Group. Well I say screw insecurities! All that matters to me right now are two things Nanowrimo and my birthday on Nov. 29. Now I will roar and share my projects and tell insecurity to go sit in the corner. I AM BUSY.

Project One: It's Complicated

Nano name: queendsheena

Genre: YA Fantasy

Quick Summary: Princess Aura goes from spoilt princess with a kingdom in peril and reeling from her father's death to being transported to our world. A book also goes with her and the longer she stays the more her happy ending and kingdom changes, for the worse.

Project Two: Huntress: The Flesh Business Book One

Nano name: Roe 2

Note: Written under a pseudonym

Genre: NA Horror

Quick Summary: Humans are the toughest prey and predators got to eat. Huntress is from the city of Shiiv, a secret city of flesh eaters who see outsiders (humans not from their city) as meat. Nothing is wasted. Huntress is a hunter and very good at her job. But when the status of hunters gets threatened she is ready to bend the rule book to protect her role and Shiiv from a shift that might be to their detriment.

Status: I am happy to say that I am working on finishing on time with Nano for the first time ever. Pretty on point with Roe 2 except for yesterday when I had to focus on freelance work. Today I plan to catch up. By Friday I will focus on queendsheena and get my word count up on It's Complicated. It's so exciting writing on a schedule with a community to chat with both here and on nanowrimo.

So here it is everyone, Nano to Nano and I'm confident it is frigging amazing. Yeah, I said it. So how are you guys this IWSG? And a special shout out to Alex C. and his helpful co-hosts.

P.S.: I got my prize from David Powers this morning. Stray by Elissa Sussman. I love hardcover books, they hold a special place is my bookish heart. Thank you David and so awesome of you send it first class.

  1. Special shout-out to you! That's awesome you are doing two projects under two names for NaNo. That will be a double-win.

    1. Thank you Leandra. I wanted to write a novel where people others who might see as villains get written as regular people. Though you and I know there is nothing normal about eating humans.
