Frump Be Gone

Frump Be Gone

Still alive and kicking. This week has been packed full of critique preparation, finishing a novella, outlining another novella and writing a couple of scenes for it. My house is kind of a mess.

And… Flu

And… Flu

I am polishing my WIP in bed between bouts of Nyquil induced relief sleep. Thought it was a cold, but am convinced this muscle aching hell is a bit more. I did wipe my laptop and start the baby over. No worries, I’m a backup queen, so nothing important was lost. Just a little patience. […]

Technical Issues

Technical Issues

Still alive and still hoping to get the book done before my self-imposed deadline. However, I seem to be shorting out all technology around me. It’s either me or my collection of Jim Butcher Dresden books. Double ovens went out. Nice “just out of warranty” front loader went out… I nearly have the oven repaired […]
