One Third

Who is a third done with edits?! This bastard! Ugh. It’s felt good editing so much in the past few days and getting down a routine. It’s interrupted now and then (I’m just getting to editing, but figured I’d warm up through a little… Continue Reading “One Third”

NaNo D24: Towels

I could have made it. Really. This isn’t blowing smoke. Story stalled. I could keep forcing it. I’m good at that. But I have another story which requires editing. I bought a domain name for it. Since it will be at least six months… Continue Reading “NaNo D24: Towels”

Reddit and Japan

It’s been a strange, but exciting, three days. Let me explain. In an average day I have between ten to fifteen visitors and fifteen to twenty views. I’m okay with this. My book isn’t out for a few more months, and I am in… Continue Reading “Reddit and Japan”

Daydream with Wild Abandon

It’s been three days since I’ve written. My characters went off script. I’m allowing it because it makes sense, it ties up some loose ends I had, it made a few characters far cooler than they were intended to ever become, and if I… Continue Reading “Daydream with Wild Abandon”

Blog Block

It’s been a while since I’ve written. I’ve debated topics, from anchor characters to the weird animals in Guatemala. None of these turned out, but I wanted to write something, so I thought I’d give a general hi, and then give an update. My… Continue Reading “Blog Block”

Victory and Underwear

I sat in front of my computer, looking through photos, writing about my experience, and listening to pump up music. I wrote with abandon, reliving moments of glory, when I crossed the finish line, writing all while wearing my orange headband. Words flew from… Continue Reading “Victory and Underwear”

Humanizing Settings

I See the Finish Line

It’s right there in front of me. I just got back the edits from my publisher. I have a lot to work in, but I’m hoping in one or two weeks it’s done and then I wait for the 12 weeks until they publish… Continue Reading “I See the Finish Line”

The “Very Inspiring Blogger Award”

Thanks Cheeni for the nomination! Go check out her blog. She loves exotic foods, poetry, and her papa. My time with Cheeni has been short, but definitely memorable, and it’s nice to get such an award. I do hope that my blog does inspire,… Continue Reading “The “Very Inspiring Blogger Award””

If you don’t shoot for the Stars, you’ll never reach the Moon

I’ve decided my path to health. Working out in and of itself became boring and I want to do something with it. There will still be six visits to a gym a week. Insanity is done and over. It’s not that I don’t like… Continue Reading “If you don’t shoot for the Stars, you’ll never reach the Moon”
