Did You Miss Me?

Hello Beautiful People!

I'm baaaaaack! Our vacation to south Texas was awesome - except the whole rainy part at the end, but it's Texas and weather cannot be predicted. However, I realized two things on this vacation. 1. I really need a DSLR camera. Pictures taken on your phone just don't do the scenery justice and 2. I'm so glad I decided to set my second book series in that area because now I have a legit, tax right-off excuse to go back. Just look at this:

Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park

This trip came at an awesome time because I REALLY needed a break. I've been working on some final touches on the third and final book of The Caelian Cycle's outline and finished the preliminary's on a Caelian Cycle Novella that will be released before the final book next year. YAY! 

MIND. BLOWN.

I didn't set out to write any novella's, but Kian's story kept begging to be told. (Plus, I know a few fangirls who love themselves some Kian and I aim to please).The novella is from Kian's perspective and WILL NOT contain spoilers to the series (it will have hints though), but will open up some of the mystery to Kian's past and explain some of the weirdo choices he has made throughout the series. 

This week, I will resume my weekly inspirational board posts, finishing my Caelian Crew from Lost. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to do the norms or start on the new characters from Bound to celebrate it's release next Monday. Which reminds me, this is your last week to purchase Lost for $0.99.

As always, STAY AWESOME!


Writer's Block

I don't think I've truly experienced writer's block in it's true definition - inability to produce new work or a creativity slowdown, but I have experienced what I call Writers Attention Deficit Disorder.

WADD is when you know you need to write, but - oh look over there- something shiny and new and fun or you have an burning need to write a new blog post. *heh* OR when you are writing your current project and know exactly what you need to say and where the story is heading then... 

You get this amazing idea for another project and it's so cool. YOU MUST WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN NOW OR THE WORLD WILL END!

I am currently flip flopping between both spectrum's of WADD at the moment. At first, I was just taking a break to read these three eBooks I had pre-ordered months ago that were just released. Then, my husband bought us a shiny new bicycle trailer, so now we can drag the rug-rats out with us on our rides.

Now, I can't get two other projects off my mind. Grant it, when the time comes for me to start them I will have an awesome baseline to start outlining and world building, but come on, Donnielle, get your act together.

Now back to push through another 1,000 words on the second installment of the Caelian Cycle.

Wish me luck!
