2018 – Here we come!

A lot of people make resolutions and goals for the new year and I’m no exception. We do it every year. Or, I do. I think that it’s a good thing to do because it makes you think, and dream, about the future. About 90% of my resolutions go by the wayside by around February, … Continue reading

NaNoWriMo 2017 – Wrap-up

Well, another year of NaNo is done and over with. How did I fare? …I’ve done better. ;o) I started out with the thought that I would write the sequel to my as-yet-unpublished contemporary fantasy novel. I had the outline. I already knew the world and the characters. Surely nothing could possibly get in the … Continue reading

National Novel Writing Month 2017

It’s that time of year again! National Novel Writing Month! Or NaNoWriMo for short. Or NaNo for even shorter! That most wonderful month where people try to write an entire novel in 30 days. Crazy, you say? Not really. It is 30 whole days, after all. If you’re organized, you can do it. The final … Continue reading

Spec Script Sunday – iZombie

  Okay, so, Spec Script Sunday isn’t really a thing (yet), but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it. ;o) This will be for the show iZombie and has spoilers for seasons 1 and 2 so if you haven’t seen the show, A) What the heck are you waiting for, it’s awesome! and B) You … Continue reading

The Specialists – Teaser Tuesday!

So last March, I took a “master class” by James Patterson. It was an online video thing through masterclass.com and, while I didn’t learn a whole lot of new things (or anything new, really, given the number of books I’ve read over the years), it did get me to thinking about style and whatnot. He … Continue reading

NaNoWriMo 2016 Round-up

December 1. The day to revisit NaNo and see what went right and what went wrong. Regardless of completing or not, the best thing about participating in NaNo was that it challenged me to come up with something completely new. I decided at the last minute that I didn’t want to work on my dark, … Continue reading

NaNo 2016 (National Novel Writing Month)

  Here we are again! The start of a brand new National Novel Writing Month! For those who don’t know, NaNoWriMo (http://nanowrimo.org/) takes place every November and you “win” by hitting the 50,000 word mark for your novel, even if that doesn’t complete the novel itself. There are writer forums of all kinds and it’s … Continue reading

On Writing – Going Dark

Most of my writing is pretty light-hearted. I’m an optimistic smartass by nature, so a good portion of my characters are, too. But even in the stories where you know things are going to turn out okay for both the world and the characters, sometimes you have to dig into darker emotions and situation. And … Continue reading

On Writing – Questions?

Super short post today! I’ve had this blog for a few years now and written a bunch of different posts on how/what I write. I was thinking about the next post and thought, “Hey, what if people have questions?” So here we go! Anyone have any questions? It can be about the mechanics of writing, … Continue reading
