Writing Updates & Goals
I made a goal of getting Destiny Seeker back in the race by the end of the year, and I’m still working on it. I’m not sure if I’ll get to it in November since I’ll be neck-deep in NaNoWriMo goals, but I definitely don’t want to neglect my goals for much longer. In the meantime, I’ve been asking beta readers for help with tweaking my cover letter to ensure I’m putting my best foot forward.
So far, I’ve written 8 chapters of Throwaway Queen, and that’s remarkable progress for me! I’m excited to see how much I’ll get done through NaNoWriMo. It’s exciting, but the pressure is looming just beyond my peripherals. Talk about spooky. However, my outline has been exceptionally helpful and I’m so glad I put in the effort earlier this year.
Speaking of NaNoWriMo, I will be participating this year! You’ll be able to feel the angst and excitement throughout this post, believe me. I prepared by setting a stepping stone goal of writing 3 times a week during October and it really helped! I recommend that to anyone that feels the pressure each day with the word count. If you’re used to writing around 600 words a session or three times a week, then it’s not as bad as not writing at all and expecting yourself to whip out 1600+ words a day.
Whitney’s Freelance Services Are Still Discounted
I announced my editing and beta reading services in July. However, I have taken off 10% of those prices for the rest of 2017! If you have a goal of being published ready by the end of the year, check out the Editing Services page to see the discounted prices and contact me if you’re interested.
If the prices are still way out of your budget, still shoot me an email. I want to help new authors and we can work something out.

What’s Coming in November?
To give you a sneak peak of what’s to come in November, here’s a quick list:
New Book Reviews: Since I’ll be working on NaNoWriMo, I’ll likely rely on reading good books as a way to procrastinate! I’m so thankful for indie novels, so there will still be reviews coming.
New Novel Descriptions: I didn’t get to this task, so I hope to get it done in November! I’ve been meaning up to update the page I have for Destiny Seeker, so I hope to revise that, as well as add a page for Throwaway Queen. I hope you’re excited to learn more about my projects.
Nerdy Fashion Post: Again, I dropped the ball on this one, but I’d like to share this post soon! I just need to take lots of pictures to show off my favorite stuff. I plan on finally writing that post that gives you insight on how to pull off your own nerdy look, as well as where I find all this stuff. Hint: it generally finds you on Instagram!
