Happy Monday everyone!I'm excited to announce that, last week, I FINISHED draft 4 of Blood on My Hands. Finally!I picked at it for a couple of hours after I finished before emailing it off to my beta readers, of course. Then I pretty much threw my hands up in the air because DONE, and sent it.… Continue reading Draft 4: Blood, Sweat, and Tears (but mostly blood)
Afternoon, readers! Today I'm going to discuss rewriting, that ancient curse upon all writers... It's inevitable. At some point, we all have to rewrite SOMETHING. If you can get through novel edits just revising and editing, then good for you. Also, I hate you.This month has taught me a lot about writing. I already knew… Continue reading The Home Stretch: Rewriting, Reconfiguring, and Generally Tearing My Hair Out
Hello again! As expected, I have read two books since last week's post. I finished The Archived and read Matched. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't all that great, to be honest. Most of the characters felt like filler, like they had no real purpose or life of their own except to drive Cassia's story forward.… Continue reading Draft 4 Update: Hooray for Summer!
Hello all! If my calculations are correct, we are in the midst of Week Six of the 90 Day Writing Challenge. As you probably already know, I haven't been keeping up with it the way I should.

Scrivener is an amazing… Continue reading Update: Draft 4 is on the horizon!
I wanted to get around to writing this post yesterday, but I didn't end up having the time. This will just have to be an irregular week. My OCD mind will have to get used to that. Anyway.The end of the school semester is approaching, so I foresee not having much time for writing projects… Continue reading Weekly Check-in: Writing, Editing, and Beyond
Afternoon, everyone! I wasn't much in the mood for doing a YouTube video today as I usually would be, so I decided to do an extra blog post. The 90 Day Writing Challenge is finally starting to inspire me to work! In typical Jenna fashion, it's been slowly, piece by piece, but I'm starting to do… Continue reading Surprise Post!
Hello all! I want to try and make these weekly updates but for now I think I'm settling for semi-weekly... such is my life at the moment.I am ashamed to admit that my progress in the 90 Day Writing Challenge is basically nil. I know what I need to do, but finding the time to do it… Continue reading Weekly Update: 90 Day Writing Challenge (fails) and… An Editing Business?

So, I was tasked by Ms Eve Jacob my taskmaster with writing this blog post on my writing style/habits. To be honest, I'm still working on it. How about this: I'll write 2 sections. One on how I write now, and one on how I'd like to write. This is how I write now: first,… Continue reading My Writing Style: 2 weeks until 90 Day Writing Challenge!
