AllTheWriFall 2021 WrapUp

Welcome to my last blog post of the year!

AllTheWriFall ran from September 1-November 30. How did I do? Let’s take a look.


Post a recap of SummySeries 2021

DONE! Read it here.

Fine-tune edit CLAIRE

DONE! I cut 6620 words. Half were the word “like.” I’m only halfway exaggerating.

Finishing CLAIRE was a Rocky moment. **spoiler alert** I won because I went the distance. Cue rousing music score. I did not, however, scream “Yo, Adrian!” at any point. Maybe next time?

Enter CLAIRE in Pitch Wars

DONE! I wasn’t selected as a mentee, but that’s okay. In another Rocky-ish moment, it was a victory just entering the contest after years of huddling in my writing cave.

Start agent research

DONE! I’d forgotten how time-consuming it was. I plan to start querying in early 2022.

Read SAVE THE CAT! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody

DONE! This book was pre-algebra all over again. I was reading, completely confused, and then suddenly, I got it. That’s also how I learned to swim. Flailing, flailing, flailing and…swimming!

Outline EMMA

NOT DONE! But I wrote a beat sheet for it and also one for the YA fantasy I’ve been working on and off for over a decade. For the first time since I started writing it (YAF), I could see all three books (should it come to that haha).

I plan to write all the words on both in 2022.

Post about my experience outlining CLAIRE

DONE! Read the post here.

And that’s a wrap!

So long, 2021

I write YA contemporary filled w/ romance, angst & family drama. Things I like: cats, snacks, baseball, green tea, taking pictures of trees & movies so bad, they’re good.
