NaNo: Using Tools When You Can!

As I mentioned before, I generally plan nothing when writing. Doing this with a short story is not so bad.  For an entire novel? Kinda difficult for me. It shoved me into lots of corners.  So this time, I decided to try and plan ahead.  I looked around on the internet (because I wanted to …

Anyone there?

*peeps around the corner* Hello? Anyone there? *crickets* Ah well.  I have returned! And I apologize.  I've long been absent from my blog.  Starting a new job, and the hubby returning to school has been quite an adventure. A busy adventure that has left me falling asleep before 10 most nights.  Also, I've been reading …

Back in Action!

Hello! First, let me apologize for my disappearance.  July was a crazy month for me, full of interviews, anxious waiting and panicking, chasing my son around, and generally stressing about money as I didn't have a job yet. The good news, I have been hired as an Academic Adviser for the School of Professional Studies …

A Letter to George RR Martin

To George RR Martin, I just watched the season finale of Game of Thrones. I am in awe, and in love, and possibly hate you with a tiny piece of my heart. I am everything that a fan of such a fandom can be.  You have created this world, this amazing place, and you have …

Oh The Treasures We Find…

So, I'm on a mission to get rid of stuff.  As I have way too much stuff. So does my husband, but he is a pack rat (I see most of his stuff staying) but I'm hoping to at least get it more organized and hidden in the back of our attic. Going through a …

A Writing Prompt

This is Author Amanda McCormick's weekly writing prompt: Using a photo from Garett Photography, write whatever inspires you. I'm going to use these two, which are really lovely. (This is a scene which may go into my new book) The sun had almost set on the longest day of the year. The garden was bursting …

The Harry Potter Book Tag

Came across this on Captivated~By~Fantasy's blog!   A Book you found interesting but would like to rewrite:     Honestly, I'm still reading this.  The plot is okay, but there is nonstop comparisons and lists of what things something is like whenever she describes something. It also feels very slow paced. I am listening to …

Writing Prompt Wednesday

So, I am going to try to start doing a Writing Prompt post every Wednesday. Wish me luck. This week's prompt: We all have trouble writing villains.  The one thing I have heard authors say the most often, and readers, about their favorite villains, or how they write them is that they must understand their …
