Editing Catch Up – What I’ve Been Up To

18 Comments on Editing Catch Up – What I’ve Been Up To

Hey everyone! NaNo has been over for a month and a half now and I have hit a slump. A big slump. I have barely gotten any editing done.

So I needed some motivation. What better way to get that motivation than by updating everyone on what I have been up to the last month and a half. Then feeling quite ashamed that I haven’t gotten any more done.


As everyone knows, or if you’re just tuning in, I spent the entire month of July editing my fourth book Not Like Everyone Else. (My other books are for sale through my Books tab above!)

Here’s the synopsis: Ryan can’t seem to get her memories in order. When she breaks it off with her long-term boyfriend, Corey, she can’t help but feel free. But mysterious events keep Ryan asking “just what happened?” After her family moved to Ryton, after Carter goes missing, after Jacob is in the hospital. All of these afters, but Ryan can’t remember the befores. With Harper and Elliot by her side, Ryan can only hope that she does not forget… again. Will Ryan be able to recover her memory to figure out what happened when it all went dark?

Now the first edit went by no problem (well…you can read about that journey through my July Camp NaNo posts here). The second edit, however, I have had no motivation. Being that everything has been crazy in my life the last few weeks. I haven’t had time to write blog posts, read, go to work, and edit.


Now I am looking to my followers for a bit of motivation. I want to be completely done editing and in the process of publishing this book in October. But it’s already halfway through September.

  1. I may not be the best in this area. I struggle right now with this. I mean REALLY struggle. When I need motivation though I watch this video. I don’t know why but it works. It was the series finale scene for SIX FEET UNDER. I don’t know if you watch this show, so it may not help. https://youtu.be/3difXqlpwVc
    Good luck.

  2. Confession, didn’t know you were a writer. Just leave me to browse through your other books…Oh! This is about you not having motivation…sorry forgot…I say if you are musically inclined, lock yourself in a room and turn on spotify and just jam out and don’t allow yourself out unless it’s to use the restroom. No food for the shamed!

    1. Thanks for the idea (except for the no food because then I might starve 😂)! No worries about not knowing! Now that you do, I’d recommend checking out my other books! ☺

  3. It was either Nike or Reebok that pushed us with – “Just do it” But if you want, I’ll set in front of you with a bottle of Moscato and a chocolate bar – and taunt you 😉

    1. Thanks! 😍 they’re under the books tab. I have three books out currently and the fourth is in the edit stage!
