Agents, CPs and Nudges off Diving Board

Had a long talk on the phone with my literary agent yesterday. I’ve been struggling with the new projects and I think she’s grown to know me over the last couple of years because she asked, “So, which one do you really, really want to write–besides the Norse YAs?”  LOL! She knows I want to […]

Baby Zombies and Scrivener

Baby Zombies and Scrivener

So, last night the hubs and I shopped with our son to find his Halloween costume. He always comes up with something witty (This year it’s a blind crossing guard.) and then we work to find the pieces. Our trip took us to three different stores and my husband made part of the costume when we […]

Football, Shouting and Repairs

Football, Shouting and Repairs

Don’t know what it is about football. I can’t get into the game and believe me, I’ve tried. My husband loves it so much, he wishes his family shared in the experience. Poor dude–none of us enjoy the game, not even our son. But it does make the PERFECT background noise for writing. (Okay, husband’s occasional shout […]

I had a music post about some of my favorite songs from the band, Massive Attack. But it was all wonky and not loading, so I trashed it.  I’ve got a deadline and friends and family stuff all weekend, so I’ll work to come up with a decent post Monday. In the meantime, check out […]
