This is a new idea for me, so anyone who stumbles upon this page or who is given the link, welcome. I plan on detailing my writing journeys for all the world to read. As I write often and hope to be published one day soon, this seems like a great way to keep my friends, family and readers up to date. With that said, let’s begin this nonsense.
Currently, I have so many writing projects going on that its hard to keep track of them all. I write for an online wrestling e-federation. That is just for fun, and I enjoy it most of the time. I have been working very hard writing on helium.com. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, you really should check it out. They currently have their Summer Reward-a-Thon going on, and I am trying very hard to qualify. It is not going to be easy. I currently have around 22 articles and or stories on there, and I have to have at least 65 to qualify…and they all have to be very highly rated. In addition, I have to rate at least 600 articles before the end of the competition. I will work very hard on it, and hopefully qualify before the end of the reward period.
In addition to that I am in the process of revising the novel I wrote for National Novel Writing Month (hereafter known as NaNo. or NaNo Wrimo). I wrote it for the competition in November 2007, but haven’t taken the time to edit it. So I have my wonderful beta (Hi Justin!) reading it and providing an opinion and proof-reading as I get it edited. It is proving to be much more daunting than I expected. I find myself adding about three times as much to the story as I am taking out. But I guess that’s just part of the process.
And as if all that weren’t enough, I am being hassled to write more fanfics for the best tv show ever, Supernatural. I have several ideas that I’d like to flesh out when I get the time. Including a story that takes place directly after the season 3, season finale. I have some theories about the cliffhanger that I’d like to see realized. At this moment in time, I don’t have the energy or time to write it. Rest assured however, it is on my to-do list. I am also still working on my writing course through Long Ridge, that is going very well and I couldn’t be happier with my instructor and the class in general.
One last thing before I sign off this evening. Be sure to go read my latest articles on Helium. You can find them from my profile, Stefani Andrews. Search for me and it’ll come up. Anyway, check out The Muse (its a great short story) and my article on the “Who’s your favorite character from Bold and the Beautiful and why?” Let me know what you think and what you think I could improve on. Til next time! ~Stef
