My Writing Plans


This post is more of an update to let you all know what is going on with my writing projects right now. I have three unfinished projects and one idea floating around in my head. That being said, I’m not planning on solely focussing on any one of them. I am a week overdue with a baby who seems very comfy where he is. I have distanced myself a little from my WIPs because the last thing I want to do is get even more invested in the narratives and have to take a big step back when baby number 2 arrives. Instead, I am organising my notes and research. This will be my process for the next few months: Notes and research and more notes and research. That way, I stay in touch with my WIPs, but don’t have to fully commit to any hardcore writing time. In truth, I desperately need to organise and sort the stories in my head.


On a different note, I am pleased to say that all three covers for my WIPs are in the final design stages. It may be a long while before I reveal them, but just having them raring to go and looking awesome will be great motivation when I get back some writing time.

For now, I shall be taking a little blog hiatus and will try to persuade this baby to make an appearance. Take care, folks.

I Can, In Theory, Kick Your Ass…

I was giggling with my friend yesterday about how I sent her a message to declare that I could, in theory, kick her ass. Yep, if you are friends with me, I feel for you. No, I wasn’t threatening her, merely stating a point after my intense research session of boxing tips, tricks, and low blows.

I needed the research for a chapter in which my MC is being handed her ass by her cage fighting friend who wants to toughen her up. I’m no expert… or should I say, I wasn’t an expert <you want to dispute it, then bring it>, so I hit Google big style. I can now, theoretically, throw a mean cross jab, block, and basically kick ass.

Ummm, yeah, calm down Kayleigh…

The conversation got me thinking about other things that I can theoretically do since researching information for the EVO Nation Series. I compiled a list for my own amusement:

  • Boxing
  • Waterboarding… and too many torture methods to list
  • Electrocution
  • Thumb dislocation and relocation
  • The Dougie… as you do
  • Bullet Wound Emergency Treatment
  • Understand the words ‘clear’ and ‘hurry’ in Italian
  • Blood transfusions in extreme circumstances

My search history is a marvel and a horror to behold. I’m sure there will be many more theoretical talents to add to my list in due course. It’s all part of the fun of writing, right?

Please, feel free to share your new theoretical talents. Don’t make me come down there and kick your ass!
