#Writing Wednesday: All of this woman’s secrets- Same Time Next Week

Posted 8 November, 2017 by DLWhite in Writers Write 0 Comments

A new week, a new Wednesday. Howdy!

My WIP is still not in shareable condition, though I hope to finish it off by the end of this week so hopefully next week I will have something cheerful and holiday-ish to share. This week I’m trying to focus on my back list a little.
I was thinking about SAME TIME NEXT WEEK recently, a book I don’t talk much about because it was my foray into interracial romance and it pretty much flopped. Not that the book isn’t good (because it is), but I didn’t and still really don’t know how to market this book. So while I am writing, I am trying to pop up some interest in a title that hasn’t received much attention but definitely deserves it.
You can catch the blurb for this book here, but the basics are that Jackson Sweeney, former boybander turned music producer, has taken his broken heart back to his hometown of Orlando, where he meets an insomniac named Shelby, who has tons of secrets that she’s not about to reveal… until someone reveals them for her and Jackson is caught up in her web of drama. But this time, Shelby’s past might hurt someone she’s come to love.
Fun fact: This project was my first #NaNoWriMo

#WritingWednesday- Same Time Next Week: The Meeting

Hi folks! I picked a fun snippet for today from my first #NaNoWriMo project, Same Time Next Week. There’s a bit of language in this one so… read at your own risk!  Also please note that this story is fanfiction so if that doesn’t float your boat, it won’t hurt my feelin’s none! Read the full story at the NF archive HERE or my personal archive HERE.




Writing Wednesday- On Writing & Tools of the Trade

Writing Wednesday- On Writing & Tools of the Trade

Hi, friends! I have a tiny update on the progress of the book and I want to talk about the tools we writers use to stay on task and write our writes. On Writing Writing last week was a bit lackluster, but I made up for it on Sunday with about 4,000 words. Monday night I didn’t write and yesterday I got in about 1,500 words over the course of the day, including one session of 1K1H (one K one hour, where we commit to writing 1,000 words or one hour, which ever comes first). I am up to 27,000 words and have reached nearly the end of chapter 5, when […]



Writing Wednesdays: That “All Is Lost” Moment + Progress!

Writing Wednesdays: That “All Is Lost” Moment + Progress!

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it to mid-week and we’re still here and kicking! Congratulations! Today, for Writing Wednesday, I will update (in generalities) on how writing my novel is going, but first I wanted to encourage my readers to please check out a meaningful, applicable post at StevenPressfield.com. It’s all about that “All Is Lost” moment, when the shiny, brilliant glow of writing something new wears off and you read back on the (possibly) hundred or so pages you’ve written, declare it crap and want to hurl yourself off of a cliff, because you suck and you’ll never be a good writer, and other such temper-tantrum utterings. Not that I know […]



Writing Wednesday: Fat Guy in a Little Coat

That has nothing to do with anything, it’s just funny to me and it came to mind this morning when I woke up. It’s February 1, and today I start writing my new project. Well, to be clear it is my new OLD Project and I am REstarting it. I tried to be one of those hip, cool writers that just write scenes and then put them together later and I had about 4 scenes written that were just directionless blather and I was lost and gave up. And then I took a month off from reading and writing because I was so frustrated. Six months later, I’m going at […]




Writing Wednesdays: Inspiration

Writing Wednesdays: Inspiration

Well, it’s another Wednesday, the hump that represents mid-week. By this point in the week I like to be knee deep in my weekly goals and challenges to myself. I have been reading and writing like a fool, so good going so far.  I’m hitting a bit of a hurdle in my current story but I am making an effort to overcome it. I’m also doing a lot of reading for research on the topic of Schizophrenia. The stories are just… larger than life, you know? I’ve also been keeping up on the blogs. The theme among the blogosphere lately seems to be inspiration. How do you get it? What […]
