I use this blogspace for:
✔creating lists of links to share on social media; and
✔documenting random thoughts.
Since I change my mind quite a bit, this whole space feels volatile and ranty. But I like it anyway!
Between April 18 and April 19, I’m writing 1 million words; or that’s the goal, anyway.
Here’s how I do it:
✔ 150K sci-fi novel
✔ 125K Kourtnie.net blog
✔ 100K sci-fantasy novel
✔ 90K autism blog
✔ 80K YA fantasy novel
✔ 70K cat blog
✔ 60K urban fantasy romance novel
✔ 50K travel blog
✔ 40K road rage novella
✔ 35K gardening blog
✔30K SNES fanfic novella
✔ 25K projects blog
✔ 23K FFIV fanfic novella
✔ 20K epic cat poem
✔ 17K 3.5e D&D blog
✔ 15K historical fic short story collection
✔ 13K nostalgia blog
My name’s Kourtnie McKenzie-Williams.
I live with 7 cats, 2 birds, dozens of fish, and a husband.
Since I write on Wattpad for free, I pay the bills by teaching at local colleges. But even if my writing paid the bills, I’d want to continue teaching at local colleges. I learn as much from my students as they learn from me. They’re wonderful human beings.
I’m writing a million words in 2018-19 so I can build an audience to self-publish my work. I’ll always offer some of my writing on Wattpad for free, because I love belonging to a community of readers and writers; but I’d also like to get y’all addicted enough to buy sequels.
I’m learning how to garden and can food. I may or may not be preparing for worst-case scenario 2030.
…I’m not sure what else you’d like to know.
I like penguins.
Is it awkward yet?
I laugh like a five-year-old at farts.
