WIP Wednesday: January 2018

It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through January when I feel like New Year’s was just yesterday. The month has been going by in a blur and 2018 is kicking into high gear. While it’s been kind to me (so far), it hasn’t been kind to others I know. So, it’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the month plays out!

In the meanwhile, I’m still working hard on my writing and blogging. I can only hope I can meet my deadlines in the next two weeks.

What am I currently working on?


I published The Scribe on Wattpad a week and a half ago. I upload a new chapter once a day Monday through Friday. If you haven’t read it already, feel free to check it out!


It’s high time I get back into this one. I’ve gone through the whole timeline and planned each mystery and case for each book in the series. Now all I have to do is draft up a basic outline of each book. I’d like to have outlines for books one and two done soon. I’ll be editing the first book next month.


This is my collection of mystery short stories. It’s actually been harder than I thought. I have a ton of mystery ideas, but those ideas are actually plot points for my George Florence series. I do have other ideas, but I feel like I’m back at square one. Needless to say, I’ve made little progress on this project this month.

What are you currently working on? How is your progress going? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to chat!

  1. You seem to be making progress continuously. My problem is that I keep “perfecting,” or at least “fiddling with” the same pieces. Ever have that problem when you first started out?

  2. ‘At The Seaside Nobody Hears You Scream’ is the novel I am working on and hopefully nearing the end. Our hero is a young private detective whose girlfriend is missing ( backstory ) and he specialises in missing persons in the hope of finding out why people disappear. Each of his cases is a short story in itself. It’s easy to lose the plot, but I want to speed on and finish without looking back and then read it straight through and see what has eveolved!

  3. Mostly I’m working on catching up from being away for several days at the start of the month, and getting some tasks out of the way so I can allow myself to focus my attention on the adventure story I keep promising myself I’ll finish.

Let me know your thoughts!
