Friday Drive By Update

Friday Drive By Update

I’m this close (picture my fingers about two inches apart) to closing on the first draft of my YA and all its Norse mythology goodness.   I’m VERY excited to get started on the rewrites, especially now that my agent has taken a peek and given some advice.   So, I’m working hard right now.  Don’t forget, […]

Mom/Writer/Wife Guilt

Mom/Writer/Wife Guilt

Kids. Home. From. School. Again. I just might have to lock myself in my room to get real work done.  Snow days from school are holidays to them, so there is a lot of excited energy and “Mom, can I” stuff since they are also stuck in here with me. Thing is, this is one […]

Food. Again.

Food. Again.

Oh, the joys of being a mother when your children have stomach flu.  One of them was hit pretty badly.  But, in between handing out glasses of cold Ginger Ale and doing mountains of laundry… and um, other stuff I won’t share–cause I luv you guys— I managed to work.  Insane, yes? Got about 1500 […]

Feeling Neglected?

Feeling Neglected?

I swear I’ll get back to regular blogging here very soon.  I’m really digging into the changes my agent suggested on the WIP.   It’s interesting coming at the story from a different angle–even more interesting trying to thread in parts already written.  This is all so new to me and yes, while I’m a little […]
