Heather!!

Heather!!

Me after seeing the topic Heather gave me “off the top of her head.”  Yeah, right.  She’s had an evil plan all along. The topic? “Write about a government mandated vaccine for psychic cat scratch disease.”

Hit Me With Your Best Shot!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot!

I think I’ve finally crawled out of the strange writing box I put myself in some time ago.  I’ll know for sure in the next couple of weeks, but I feel this bubbling excitement low in my gut and let me say… it’s about damned time. I’ve officially gone beyond the point I did on […]

Bummer

Bummer

No one guessed correctly.  Sorry I didn’t get to this yesterday.  We had an unexpected hectic day and today is looking to be about the same.  I was going to post a pic of all the books I have, but someone (translate to probably a kid) took off with my phone cable.  Betty was right.  Those […]

One Of These Books…Topic Contes...

One Of These Books…Topic Contest!

The last time I issued a challenge, the Snarky readers gave me such interesting things to writer about! See Norse Gods at Starbucks & Now They Run From Valen Greer in the pages at the top.  Let’s do it again. I love the creative topics you guys come up with and I really love the challenge […]

Love Will Keep Us Together

Love Will Keep Us Together

Good evening, my faithful muscrats… I was trying to find my senior picture so you could make fun of my incredible eighties hair, make-up and jean dress.  Yeah, jean dress.  Instead, we ended up going through a bunch of pics and I thought you might get a kick out of this first grade pic of […]

Writer Hangover

Writer Hangover

I wrote until one-thirty in the morning last night.  There’s something about those late, dark hours when everyone is asleep, the phone doesn’t ring and you can lie on the floor in a pair of sweats and just pour the story out.  (Okay, the floor thing didn’t last long.  36 year-old bodies don’t do floor well […]

We Interrupt This Program…

We Interrupt This Program…

To stomp around and yell. I’ve been typing away like mad today.  My fingers are sore, my head hurts from the antibiotics I’m on yet again,  and everything I’m writing seems like crap.  CRAP! But that’s supposed to be okay.  I’ve been the first to tell everyone here that days like this are normal.  I know it.  […]

Busy Days, Typos and OKRWA Authors!

Busy Days, Typos and OKRWA Authors!

I’m still trying to reach this personal deadline.  I realized quite far into the book that one of my main characters is just not right.  I’m not talking brain damaged—no, but that might make this book more freaking interesting.  No, I’m talking badly written.  Plus, he has this scary aspect to him that needs to […]

Store Snark & Contest Placement

Store Snark & Contest Placement

Happy Monday!  Since Rachel said I wouldn’t on her blog, I have to speak up.  <g> My WIP took second place in an internal RWA chapter contest we have.  I’m pretty stoked. And…I have new designs this week, so I thought I’d share.  Hope one or two spark a laugh…or at least, a smile.  I […]
