NaNoWriMo: Day one

So, I’m using NaNo this year to finish book four of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series, Waking for Winter. AAAAND to hopefully start a new project. Ambitious, yes?

Well, I’m not going to lie, I need the motivation. Not that I haven’t been a writing machine this year–I’ve kicked out most of the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles in 2016. However, this book has been stalling for me. The characters are great, I’ve got a cool as shit concept, but I’m just waiting for certain scenes to gel, for it to tug at my heartstrings and not let go.

Come on, Kat, what are you doing blogging and not writing? I KNOW. I’m being bad. I haven’t even gotten my normal 1000 words in for the day let alone the extra 600some I need to keep on target. I know myself though–challenges thrill me. They give me something to fight for, and once I start fighting for this story, nothing will stop me. So I go into NaNo with a cup of coffee, an open heart, and some ass-kicking scenes to write.

To all you other NaNo’ers out there–WRITE ON!



I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
