About Nell, Writing Update

Writing update

Happy Monday, everyone! I thought I’d tell you about what I’ve got going on at this moment.

I’m still writing 9 Willow Street, my bunny shifter story (inspired by this super short as you probably know by now if you’re a regular visitor to my blog). I’m currently at 13500 words, and I plan on finishing it this week. Keep your fingers crossed that I’ll make it!

I love that little bunny! He’s adorable and so possessive of his human before shifting into his human form himself.

Here’s the inspiration picture for the bunny. Isn’t he the cutest?

His Steady Heart is submitted and accepted by my publisher and will be released May 25. Wanna read the blurb?

Ashley Buchanan—Buck—moved back home to take care of his sick mother when he was 22. That was the first time he met Pippin, the neglected 6-year-old boy next door. Fifteen years later, Buck—a caretaker by nature—offers up his couch for Pippin, who needs a break from his mom and a quiet place to sleep.

Pippin Olander is a ray of sunshine despite his emotionally lacking upbringing and works hard to make a better life for himself. Even though he’s fiercely self-sufficient, he learns to accept help from Buck, his rock and only steady presence in his life.

Their friendship deepens and grows into something more as they spend more time together. But when other people try to throw a wrench in the works, when Pippin’s independence is triggered, can Buck and Pippin trust in the love they’ve found?


I’ll be doing a lot of writing in April, because I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo. My publisher always has a cabin for any of us writers who wants to participate, and I love the community feeling so I signed up. Let’s hope I reach my goal of 20K words. My first step will be to finish 9 Willow Street, and after that I have another project ready to go. I’ll tell you more about it later.

I made a NaNo tracker in my bullet journal to keep up with my progress. Let’s hope it’ll be all filled out and pretty at the end of the month!

Have a great week, everyone! 🙂

    1. Whatever works, right? And yes, if you’d asked me to guess, I would’ve said a spreadsheet 😀

      I don’t know what it is, but I just seem to work better with the analogue way of tracking things or or keeping a calendar or planning or even writing. Doing it with pen and paper instead of digitally, makes me more eager and it gives me joy. I love my bullet journal 😀

        1. No, not a first draft. I sketch it out first, sometimes on scratch paper, or sometimes directly in my bullet journal with pencil so I can erase and change it up. Drawing and painting and stuff like that, don’t come naturally to me, so it’s a struggle to make it pretty, but I like doing it. It’s creative, but a break from the words, and we all need a break from the words sometimes, don’t we? 🙂
