The NaNoWriMo Chronicles

happy-holidaysJust like everyone else who dons the title Writer, I’ve been working hard on my own project this month. I’ve crossed into the 47k mark recently but I’m losing steam. I’m conflicted about the set up for the ending but I can’t edit blank pages so I just want to put words down.

I also want to start a new project that I’ve had in the notes stage for a while and I think the world needs it. I need it. But I don’t want to abandon Printed in Blood, which desperately needs a better title.

God, I hate my title. Titles are hard. Forget writing. Titling is the real battle.

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
