The Legend of Zelda Update


I planned on April being a big writing month. My goal was to have the first Legend of Zelda collection out on Kindle by the end of the month along with significant progress in the novel revisions. Those were my plans. And then life happened. My stepdad has been in the hospital for about a month now. For a couple weeks, it was pretty scary and I spent many hours in the hospital. Thankfully, he pulled through the worst of it and is on the long road to recovery. Needless to say, I’m not reaching my writing goals this month. But that’s life and I will put aside my goals to take care of family whenever it’s needed.

The good news is I received great feedback on my Zelda stories a couple weeks ago at my writing group. From that feedback, I am revising all twelve stories of the first collection and I think the revisions will make the stories more enjoyable for children and adults. After the revisions, they will go through final edits, cover design and formatting. I have formatting under control, but looking for recommendations for designers and editors. My new goal is to have the first Legend of Zelda collection available by the end of May. The goal is very attainable on my end as long as life doesn’t get crazy again and I find a reasonably priced cover designer.

I am really excited about the Zelda stories and my novel. Hopefully, I can get my butt in gear and get them out into the world soon!

Thanks for the prayers, love and support the past several weeks!

  1. Ah! I love that you use Legend of Zelda! I at first thought you were doing fanfiction for some the game, but then perused your blog and found out it’s totally your own! But I am wishing you all the luck in the world!

    • My husband are big fans of the game so that’s part of the reason we named our pug Zelda. I’m having lots of fun with the stories. Thanks for the well wishes and stopping by!
