Riding the Anticipation Roller Coaste...

Riding the Anticipation Roller Coaster

   Waiting for the NO, the Maybe, or the Yes. Since several people are thanking me for sharing what this is like, I’m diving in.  The emails have been sweet, btw. 😉 What I’m feeling today: I got up ridiculously early.  Early enough to have the hubby do a double take when I shuffled into […]

Quick Update

Quick Update

   My head was up there today. I took 1, 786 digital photos during my job today, so I’m running behind tonight on home things and need to help the kids study for tests tomorrow.  But I had a hard time concentrating the entire day.  My writer friend liked my chapters, contacted her agent, who […]

Things I’m Loving Tonight and Writing News

This commercial cracked me up!

Odd Yet Busy Day

Odd Yet Busy Day

  Tight Schedules Can Inspire a Person to get off the old Butt. 😉 Came home sick from work and slept nearly four hours.  I’m fighting a cold and plan to take tomorrow to rest some more.  This one rode in with an unbelievably bad headache.  Got pay/work issues happening, too, so things have been […]

Curiousity Killed the– Plus, Writing News

Do you ever get curious about the searches that bring people to your site?  I love reading the search strings that bring readers here, but I’m seriously, seriously curious about the people who type in my name.  Who is looking for me?  Why? Saturday, someone typed in “rinda elliott” five times.  Of course, a writer’s […]

What Do I Want In An Agent?

What Do I Want In An Agent?

So, what is it a writer really wants in an agent? For me, it’s someone who is comfortable going after the best deals and the right publishers for my work.  Someone who knows the business and uh, knows that writers can occasionally be a little strange.  Just a little, right? <g>  Believe it or not, I’m shy about […]

One Writer’s Problem Areas

One Writer’s Problem Areas

  Needed a bit more research, too. 😉 Let’s backtrack. I’ve been going over Rachel’scritiques and wow, is it wonderful seeing my work through someone’s critical eye.  Okay, okay, I’ll be honest, it’s not always wonderful at first.  I sometimes have a bit of trouble in the beginning.  Especially if there are a lot of […]

Store News and After Holiday Sleepy

Store News and After Holiday Sleepy

This shirt is called “You’re Just a Pervert.” I moved some things around at the Write Snark and all the Hey Santa designs went on special.  Cafe Press is offering free shipping on orders over 75 bucks through Sunday, so if you feel the need to holiday shop for those writer friends in your life, keep the Snark […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is the first day that has felt like Autumn.  There’s a chill to the air and it smells fresh and cool outside.  I’m preparing for a houseful but wanted to step in and wish you all a happy holiday. 🙂

Good Pic!

Good Pic!

I’m still waiting on pics my sister took at my Halloween party, but I found this very excellent one taken by my daughter.  All but one are writers. And yes, one threatened my life should I post, but I think she’s beautiful. 😉   I had a rough week last week.  Started out rough with […]
