Another chapter down, but why oh why did I decide to trap my characters in a cabin in the woods?! Trying to write myself out of these constraints by using healthy and active flashbacks. What else can I do to add action? Sadly it isn't a horror story, so zombie werewolf mutant aliens are right out.
So I have come to realize that a novel is much like a thesis. Once you have written it, edited/formatted it, and published/submitted it; you probably never want to look at it again. I am currently fixing a few editing issues in Moonlight Medicine: Onset pointed out to me by my dear friends, and all I can say is "aaaaaarrrrrrrgggghhh!" On the plus side, I can see my writing improving chapter by chapter, so that is something at least. I can't wait to be done with this editing and back to writing again!

My name is Jen Haeger and I have a degree in Veterinary Medicine as well as a Master's in Forensic Science, so I decided to forget all that and write novels. I used to read quite a bit as a youth, but was not introduced to truly spectacular writing until my husband showed me the works of Jim Butcher, Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, and others. We are both enormous dorks and enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy, Board Games, and RPGs, but also try to get out backpacking every once in a while (much easier to do when we lived in New Zealand). Cheers!
