3-28-17 -- I worked my way through another chapter of Captive today. The further I get in the novel, the more work I have to do, as most of the changes start about half-way through. I left the novel after that chapter to let my brain rest and to work through some of Grammarly's edits for Shore Haven. I think I've said this before, but when I pick that novel up to work on the second draft, I want to stumble across as few minor errors as possible. I probably won't start the second draft until next month, though. In the meantime, check out this excerpt from Shore Haven. #shorehaven #wip #zombie #apocalypse #jenniferreynolds

2-2-17 -- I should finish the first draft of Shore Haven first thing in the morning. I'm so excited. My husband discussed the novel for a while last night. I have what I hope will be a great ending and some ideas to fix a few plot holes I know I created. :) :) Enjoy this snippet. #shorehaven #wip #zombie #apocalypse #jenniferreynolds

1-31-17 -- I made my monthly goal. Now let's see if I can make my weekly one which is to finish this novel my the weekend. I'm pretty sure I will. All I have is about a chapter and half plus the epilogue to go, so cross your fingers. I think once I finish this novel, I'm going to take a writing hiatus. I'm going to continue to work on the Shore Haven, Marked, and Book three of my Supernaturals series in order to release them this year, but I don't think I'm going to start another project for a few months. I want to write the second book in my Alone series, so that will most likely be my next project.

1-24-17 -- I'm still not having a productive writing week. I have legitimate reasons, but I still feel like a slacker. :( I'm creeping closer to the end, though. I should have a draft finished by the end of next week barring any more problems. On a positive note, here is a snippet for you. :)

1-22-17 -- More drama around the house this weekend. One thing I can't talk about, but the other is that the ceiling in the bathroom leaked during the last storm and our ceiling feel into our new shower. That is pretty much how things work in my world. I have been writing, just not as much as I should. I have Shore Haven up to about 84,000 words with only about three more chapters to go. If the ending continues the way I think it will, I should finish the novel by the end of the month, but if more stuff happens than I plan, then I will finish the first of February.

1-17-16 -- I'm not having a good writing week. :( I've only managed 1,000 words in the last two days. I wanted to hit 90,000 words by the end of the month. I also wanted to finish the first draft of Shore Haven, but I'm not sure that is going to happen. Maybe the next few days will be better. I do have an excerpt for you today. :)

1-15-17 -- I lied. I did not spend the weekend cleaning. I did some light things yesterday and got my oil changed, but other than that I didn't do anything else but watch television. I've been a bit more productive today. I took my vacuum apart and cleaned it and made it to 80,000 words on Shore Haven. :) My survivors have just come upon a murder/suicide. How many of you, if give the chance, would you shoot yourself rather than turn? https://www.pinterest.com/pin/544372673678885886/

1-11-17 -- The contractors are painting my bathroom. Yay!!! The old people have been up since 6:30 this morning, so I'm tired and writing slowly. I did make my daily word count goal, which has kept me on schedule for the week. Here's a snippet from Shore Haven for you to enjoy.

1-9-17 -- I hit 76,000 words with Shore Have today. This week should be pretty calm. I don't think we have but another day or so with the contractors and today is the only day I have to get our for doctors' appointments, so I should hit 80,000 before the week is up. I am nearly the end of this novel. I think I have just a handful of chapters to go. The entire novel will top out around 90,000 words for the first draft. Yay! Here is an excerpt for you to enjoy. :)

1-6-17 -- I made it to 74,000 words today. Not even close to where I need to be, but I'm writing. We had a little bit of snow today. The news called for snow and ice, so we didn't have our contractors today. I have a shower and toilet, so all's good. :) :) I didn't get you a snippet for today, but did finish a scene where my survivors have meet other survivors who've created a nice fortified home for themselves. All of humanity, may not be lost. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/79587118395267236/

1-3-17 -- I hit the 1,000 word mark just after the contractors left. I should keep writing, but I want to clean up a little and cook supper, so I'm done for the day. Enjoy this snippet from Shore Haven.

12-29-16 -- I've had a day, some of it good (my stepmom, whom I haven't seen in a while, came to see me and brought us our Christmas), some of it not so much, but I did manage another 1,000 words on Shore Haven. I'll be pushing to meet my goal these next few days, but I'm going get there. Today, I decided not to be lazy and put together a snippet for you. Enjoy. :)

12-27-16 -- I have about 4,000 words to go before meeting my 70,000 word count goal by the end of the year. If the rest of the week goes as smoothly as today has been so far, I should meet that goal. :) :) Here's short excerpt. Enjoy. :)

12-21-16 -- Monday was a trying day at home, but yesterday, I was out all day shopping, so it was a better day. I've also had a quite morning in which I was able to get a little writing done. I don't think I'm going to make it to 80,000 by the end of the year, but 70,000 for sure. Here is a short snippet from the Shore Haven.

2-6-17 -- I know I've been a bit quiet as of late, but my father-in-law is back in the hospital. Things will probably continue to be quiet for the next week. I did want to stop by and let you know that I finished the first draft of Shore Haven and the I don't know what number draft of Marked. I'm all kinds of excited about both. I probably won't start the next draft of Shore Haven until next month. I want to give my mind a break from it. :) :) :)

2-1-17 -- I am still on track to finish Shore Haven this week. I don't think my current chapter will be the last, but I'm positive it is next to the last. I may also add an epilogue. I'm at the 91,000-word count. I thought this would be my longest piece, but I think Alone and book 3 of my supernaturals series are between 93,000 and 95,000 words. Enjoy this snippet from the novel.

Happy Friday everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been on much this week. We are still dealing with a family medical issue which is taking up a great deal of my time and which will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. I am writing when I'm not reading through both Marked and book 3 of my Supernaturals series. I'm not doing much with book 3, just looking it over when I have free time between now and when it returns from its first round of edits. Marked I'm looking at a little more closely for plot holes and the like. Yes, I'm aware that that is my editor's job, but I know she has a lot of work to do with book 3 since I sent it to her is such bad condition, so I don't want her to have to work that hard on Marked. I am nearing the end of Shore Haven. I'll hit 90,000 words by the end of the month as I planned, as I'm already at 87,000 words, but the novel will probably be closer to 95,000 words before I finish, which I hope to do next week. As an apology for neglecting all of you, here's a cool image that depicts a scene I finished the other day. One of my survivors is looking for her parents. She's tracked them to a military quarantine zone that zombies have overrun. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/238620480236489476/

1-23-17 - My Inspiration Fairy wasn't with me today. I only managed 500 words. To get even that much out was exhausting. I'm giving up for the day. I'll try to do better tomorrow. I didn't create a post to share with you today.

1-16-17 -- Yay for quiet mornings. I got my 1,000-word daily goal down pretty quickly. I feel confident that I'll wrap this novel up this month. After that, I'll start the editing process. I think I'm going to wait until I get my three current projects ready for print before starting anything else. My goal is to get back to book two of Alone and maybe start the second book in my Valeterra Series--that is if nothing else pops into my head. Enjoy this snippet.

1-13-17 -- I've been writing and will continue to do so through the weekend, I hope; therefore, I should make my 80,000 wordcount goal, but I probably won't be on here much until next week, as I'm in clean my house mode. I'm going to do what my mom would call a bit of spring cleaning since the house is so dirty from all the work we had done. Doing so will limit my time on here. I do have a snippet from Shore Have for you to enjoy. :)

1-10-17--Things aren't quiet around her, but I still managed to get a little over a thousand words on paper, or well, on the computer, so I think I'm doing good. I might just make it to 80,000 by the end of the week. Enjoy this snippet from the novel. I've been trying to give Marked and book three of my supernaturals series another read-through. Maybe I'll get to them today. :)

1-7-17 -- I had a lot of things to do today, so I almost didn't get any writing time in, but I did manage 1,000 words. I also noticed that I only have about five chapters left. I hope to finish this draft this month. Cross your fingers for me. :) Enjoy this snippet from the novel.

12-30-16 -- This was my best writing day in a long while. I managed to write 2,000 words, which put Shore Haven at exactly 70,000 words just as the year is ending. Yay!!! I also got some laundry done, dishes washed, morning and noon meds and meals distributed, and a good bit of my Christmas put up. I usually like to wait until New Year's day, but I have contractors coming in next week to start on my bathroom, so I have to have Christmas down and my hall and bathroom boxed up before they get here, so Christmas is coming down a bit early this year. I'm going to miss my big tub, but the old people need the walk-in shower shower more than I need the random bath I take. :) :) :) Happy New Year everyone. Enjoy this snippet from Shore Haven.

12-28-16 -- I'm a little closer to my writing goal for the month. I did write today on Shore Haven, but I haven't done much of anything else. For some reason, I'm tired. I feel drained. Because of how tired I feel, I didn't put together a snippet for today, so enjoy this random zombie related image. :) https://www.pinterest.com/pin/234046511859494438/

12-23-16 -- Yesterday was another day that didn't go as planned. I thought I chipped a tooth and had to go to the dentist, then I had to run to WalMart twice because I kept forgetting stuff, among other things that just made the day unproductive. :( I did have a quiet morning and managed to write a 1,000 words on Shore Haven. I'm getting close to my new 70,000 word goal. Enjoy this snippet from the novel.

Thankfully, I don't have to go anywhere, so it can just sit there until my husband gets home. I did have an easy writing session this morning with Shore Haven, so that is a plus.

12-14-16 -- Today has been a day, to say the least, but I'm here and it could have been a lot worse. I'm tired, so that makes all the little things feel like huge things. On the plus side, I managed 1,000 words today. I didn't think it was going to happen. Because of my mood, I think I was a little hard on some of my new comers, but I can work that out in my next read-through. As promised, here is a short snippet from the novel.
