Put the Paper in Your Hands

Put the Paper in Your Hands

My CP, Rachel, never prints her work.  She does everything on screen.  I do a lot of my work on screen, but I’ve learned it’s not until I actually print the scenes out and physically handle them– that I “feel” the story.  This probably sounds like pure bunk to some, but I like to see […]

Past Submissions and Jocelynn Drake’s Debut!

Tackling a couple of subjects in this post.   I’ve been blogging a lot lately about juggling life, jobs and writing.  I’m not the only one tackling the subject.  Here are a couple of other writers who’ve shared recently. Carrie Ryan JP Davis Someone brought up the panic spiral.  It’s pretty easy to get caught […]

Exhausted But Smiling

Exhausted But Smiling

  (Photo by Dani Simmonds) I was in desperate need of mind calming devices over the weekend.  Writers are constantly torn–at least this one is.  I work in a separate job that helps pay the bills, so my choice for weekend time would be for the work I love.  I also have a family who […]

In Search of Zen

In Search of Zen

Another shot from my daughter.  Fits my mood a bit more today.  I’ll admit it.  I’m feeling quite melancholy over missing Conestoga when it’s so close.  My CP and agent are there–plus a lot of UF authors I’d like to meet in person.  Also have to pass on the RWA conference in San Francisco next week.     […]

He Isn’t Helping

He Isn’t Helping

My daughter took this shot.  This is Saber.  When I’m writing, he likes to get on the chair or couch behind my head and snuggle.  Tonight, he wrapped his tail around my neck before sticking it up my nose.

So Excited I’m UNDONE!

So Excited I’m UNDONE!

I couldn’t be more excited for my friend, Brooke Taylor!  Her debut novel is out TODAY! Undone by Brooke Taylor When Kori Kitlzer, the “dark angel” of the 8th grade, tells Serena Moore that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued.  As their friendship solidifies and their lives entwine, Serena tries […]

Writer Software and Word Count Success

Note:  Images are winking in and out of dimensions on my website, but they will all soon be back, safe and sound.  WordPress had an issue with a new image server or something.  Me thinks maybe some of my writing gremlins got loose.  *They will soon be returning to the sidelines here.* This is my […]

Last Day

Last Day

All three acts in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog are up and today is the last day to watch it free!  It’s fantastic–my daughter and I both loved it.  I would give specific hilarious parts, but don’t want to ruin the surprises.  You don’t want to miss. http://www.drhorrible.com/

Needed Some Older Tunes

Needed Some Older Tunes

Rush projects in the pay job were called in yesterday afternoon, so I’m swamped.  Making sacrifices-Can’t go to the OKRWA meeting. 🙁 — this weekend so I can make up writing goals and carve out some badly needed kiddo time.  Plus, I need to be writing.  The story is so alive and I’m frustrated by […]

Making Up Time Today

Making Up Time Today

The defrag took all day yesterday, so I have to make up my payjob work today.  No new words last night because silly me introduced the hubby to Pandemic 2.  He never gets into games, so I didn’t think it would hurt.  My son was on the desktop, so I snuggled up with the hubby since […]
