Journal, Handwriting, and Me

Hello, Readers! October was the last time this was updated and not late October, but rather early in the month. Wow. It always comes as such a shock that I don't upkeep my blog as well as I should. I mean, my life is busy, but it isn't that busy. It is more a matter… Continue reading Journal, Handwriting, and Me

Weathering the Storms

Hello, Readers! I swear, every time I think I'm headed in the right direction another wrench falls. Tuesday found me in a fit of worry as my oldest daughter had been caught the night before in monsoon type rains. The vehicle she was coming home in had slid from the road and it was too… Continue reading Weathering the Storms

While the World Sleeps

Hello, Readers! My sleep cycle is completely shot. This leaves me sleeping most of the morning, but somehow it is working for me so far. While it drives the rest of my family nuts I'm getting more work done during the hours while the world sleeps than I have in a long time. My body… Continue reading While the World Sleeps

The Mind Whirls

Hello, Readers! I have kept a sense of the general plot and have decided to do some sort of hybrid of plotting and pantsing for these novels. While I will continue to keep notes as I go along and have a general idea of where I want to go, I'll leave the majority of it… Continue reading The Mind Whirls

Exhaustion and Recharging

Hello, Readers! I totally slept through yesterday. My body has a funny way of letting me know when I've pushed it too hard and when I need to take time to recharge my batteries. I would say the last month or so it has been complete chaos. The hubby man has been working a string… Continue reading Exhaustion and Recharging

Letting Go!

Hello, Readers! I missed yesterday for blogging so I wanted to come back with a great blog post. The question was which blog to write about. Should I have gotten into the fact that of is a useless word in my novel? I swear two rounds of edits and we've gone through and almost all… Continue reading Letting Go!

How Playing MMORPGs Helped Me With Writing

Hello, Readers and Writers! First off, Happy Valentine's Day! I think the title of this post really states what a gaming nerd I am. After all, who else do you know that could convert gaming into such a bonus in all aspects of their lives.

Your Voice in Writing

Today I'd like to address Writers as well as Readers. I have to say that as an author I am constantly trying to learn. Writing is an art and like all arts, you remain in a perpetual state of learning. As you've probably seen during a few other posts I've been reading a lot of… Continue reading Your Voice in Writing

When The Ideas Come Flooding In

Hello, Readers. During this downtime between books, I've read one amazing book 'Writing Fantasy & Science Fiction; How to create out-of-this-world novels and short stories'. I wasn't sure how the book would turn out as I've purchased many writing help books that just didn't seem to hack it. While I won't follow the book verbatim… Continue reading When The Ideas Come Flooding In
