Openings…

I finished the the opening scene yesterday. Now I know the changes I need to revise it and build from there. It was one of those mornings when I was able to wake up at 5 am and get a lot done.

Today was not one of those days. I woke up way late and haven’t begun, yet, but I … Read More »

I feel inspired today…

Wish me luck. :) I’m jumping further into book 3. Book 2 has been retitled Cursed. It’s about Alex and his high school sweetheart, who’s a bit more than the girl next door.

I’ve been awaiting revisions on Cursed and reading The Anatomy of Story by John Truby while letting book 3 bloom in my mind. It’s titled in the same … Read More »

Merry Christmas!

Every year I swear to myself I’ll be all caught up by Christmas (Okay, for me, Christmas begins the night of Thanksgiving. :)) and ready to relax and enjoy my favorite time of year. No such luck this year.  I am determined to have more than 5 days free and clear, however.

Betrayed is ramping up for an incredible release. … Read More »

Writing…

Some days writing is so rewarding and fun. Those are days when you wake up and have an epiphany about what to do next. Then you consider it more in depth and realize that all along you’ve had the seeds of this epiphany scattered throughout the work.  It’s moments like this when you think, hey!  I really haven’t been wasting … Read More »

My Very First Blurb!!!

This is so cool! On Monday, I mailed out bound copies of Betrayed to a few authors, hoping they’d like the book enough to endorse it. (With permission of said authors first, of course. I can’t think of a better way to get a bad blurb than to just dump books on an unsuspecting, overwhelmed anyway author.)

So, here is … Read More »

Being Prolific

See, I am not prolific.  Sometimes I feel I am, but mostly I know I’m not.  I just have really good days sometimes.  But this is something I need to work on.  I guess you can call it a Post New Year’s/Holiday Resolution.  You know, like when the fun stuff is over and you spend a few weeks trying to … Read More »

Happily Ever After!

In the last few years, my reading time has gone down. I watch movies, spend time with the family and cross stitch or crochet. Part of this has to do with the complaints of family since I was 10 or so. I was always reading and not spending time with them or being interested in what they had to say. Read More »

Research

I’ve discovered my research organization finally! It feels so good. After all the years of trying to maiantain file cabinets and accordian files, I’ve finally admitted they just aren’t my style. Binders are good for most things, keeping medical papers together is one of them. We have a binder for each member of the family that holds important school and … Read More »

X-Men 3 and Will Power

So who knew a DVR could cut off *6* times in the course of 1 single movie? Add in two potty breaks and it’s amazing I retained any of the movie at all. That’s okay. It was clearly a filler movie where they needed all these huge things to happen so the next movie starts off with a bang.

Or … Read More »
