Time to get back into the saddle!

It is time to get back into the habit of posting on my blog regularly. I got out of the habit as I have been feverishly working on my work in progress from NaNoWriMo. I can’t believe how excited I am with this project. It is around 40,000 words so far and I am not sure it will be a full novel length, but I am working hard on it while at the same time doing live streams and videos for youtube. I have 58 subscribers to my youtube channel so far and I am stoked. Here’s the link to my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSpNS-6gfJ0s8eD1berLwQg

My current work in progress is a thriller. It has been so much fun planning and writing this. I have never written a thriller before. I kept changing my villain, but there are clues pointing to all the main characters so you will have no idea who did it, if I did it right, of course.

I am sorry to have fallen behind with my blog posts, but I am super busy with my writing and youtube videos and live streams. Plus editing my videos for youtube is time consuming and I am still learning editing on top of all the rest of the stuff I am doing. I am getting over the awkwardness now and so it is getting more fun to do.

Good thing I don’t work. I can’t fit in all I want to do now.

Tessa Dean – Author

This is my new author’s blog. I will be using this as my author platform and I will be posting my short stories, flash fiction, poetry and other types of writing. I also write articles on subjects that I find interesting to me. I spent a year writing articles on Bipolar Disorder for International Bipolar Foundation.

I am also in the process of writing my memoirs and have posted 6 chapters to one of my memoirs on another blog. I am still in the process of writing my memoirs. I started in the middle of my life with my time spent as a military wife. They are a lot harder to write than I originally thought because my memory is failing. Last NANOWRIMO I started my memoir of my childhood years. That needs a lot of work before it is ready for posting on here.

I also have several different books started in the romance, thriller/mystery and horror/paranormal genres. With NANOWRIMO’s camp coming up in July I will be starting a new book and trying to outline it as I am a pantser and have never outlined a book before. We’ll see how that goes in July. I enter NANOWRIMO every time it is offered, which is 3 times a year, and sometimes I finish and sometimes I don’t.
