All nano’s eve

October 30, 2012

October 31. Halloween. All Hallows Eve. The precursor to All Saints Day and All Souls Day. No matter what you call it, kids from two to ninety-two will be dressing up in the best costumes and trying to frighten the pants of you. But you know what? They don’t scare me. Because Halloween represents something […]

Query me this

September 19, 2012

Writing a novel was easy in comparison to the query. That baby may be the death of me. When writing a novel you aren’t limited by word counts or pages.

Resolutions for this week

February 27, 2012

Only wear the clothes that fit me. Stop trying to stuff and fold myself into the I Wish jeans and the bottom of my drawer. Write. Write. Write some more. Do not spill red wine onto my keyboard. Or down my cleavage. Again. Figure out a new title for Suicide City. Re-titling is hard and […]

February is challenging this year

February 16, 2012

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are. ~Bernice Johnson Reagon For some reason, this February has brought challenges. Not the usual ones like finding enough hours to write, figuring out what to get my daughter (who turned 20 last week!) for her birthday, or remembering […]
