For the Win 2014!

Yay! I did it! And I manage to finish up with a few days left to spare! Hooray!

This year, I am now a little more experienced than I was in the past. And now I know that having completed 50,000 words in a single month doesn't come close to being the end of the journey, it's barely even the beginning. And I'm not talking here in terms of revision either, although that's part of it. But I feel as though I've barely scratched the surface of my story, as if there is so much left to write.

On the other hand, writing 50,000 words in a single month means, to me, that I have a sufficiently large chunk of the story down on paper so that now I really know where this is all heading. Now I can see the shape of the story and how to refine it.

And having now a draft of The Tales of Omorbia, Book II; I wouldn't be surprised if this material makes it to Wattpad sometime soon.

Here's my lovely certificate, right from the printer:

Time to start contemplating whether or not I should pump out another one during Camp NaNoWriMo coming up in April!! :P

#NaNoWriMo Draws to a Close

So I've had a busy month and I can't believe that this is the last week of it. I've been mostly hard at work, as you may have noticed, on my NaNoWriMo manuscript for this year, as well as some fun side projects such as videos that you may have seen and a short story that you will see soon enough.

What else is there to say, folks? I'm going out of town for the weekend so I have a mere four days left to win this year. So 5,000 words a day for me. Hooray! Positive I can do it. Just don't expect regular blogging until December. Hehe. :)

See you on the other side!

#AVFTE31 - The Stephanie Wilson Show (that's me!)

Hey everyone! Just a little note to say that tomorrow at 11 a.m. EST/8 a.m. PST, I'll be doing a Live Google+ Hangout with an online community called "A View From the Edge".  I'll talking about all things writing since that's my passion including Wattpad, Nanowrimo and the world of self-publishing.

Here the event link if you can make it. If you do tune in, you'll be able to enter questions into a chat windows for me to answer, so there is a bit of an interactive element there. After it's finished, the video will be up on YouTube, and I'll probably embed it here and elsewhere around the web.

Super nervous to go live but hopefully everyone can make it out to support me! Hooray!

UPDATE: Watch it here:

New Profile Photo

Hey! I've got a new profile photo across all my accounts, which you may have noticed. What do you think?

I took it just after a got a new hair a little while ago. I kinda feel like it doesn't quite look like me. But then again it does. Whatever. It's awesome. Bangs got trimmed! Woo!
