Into the Breach

Good afternoon, gentle viewers, and a Happy Halloween to you! Or a joyous Samhain, if that’s how you roll. Or you know, Dia de los Muertos is tomorrow, I reckon. Holiday season is in full swing! And I have the tea to prove it. Nom nom nom. Twelve short hours…

Make Them Beg For More

The best compliments I have ever received about my writing were all some derivative of the following: “I want more.” That is the bit of ambrosia all of us yearn for. If we write for an audience, we spend our time willing life into the empty whiteness of a blank…

Pawing the Ground

Picture me as I look ahead at the month of November. It’s getting cold outside. The challenge is before me, waving its little red flag. My feet start to paw the ground in front of me. I might even snort a little, bursts of steam in the chilled air. The…

Keep It Simple

Once upon a time, about a century ago (okay, more like a decade) when I was a junior in high school, I got traumatized by a book. That book was Heart of Darkness. My best friend and I used to have these little contests to see who could hate that…

Magic in a Jar and Other Creative Tales

I know, I know. Double post action today. However, first of all, I need to celebrate getting draft two of book one finished. Yep. Done-zo. Even untangled the snarl at the end of the yarn ball into a perfectly awesome ending and a snazzy epilogue. It’s lookin’ like a book,…

In Which Emmie Has a Very Ambitious Goal

Yesterday when I had to go to work (the beer-slinging work), I was in the middle of my writing work. 4:30 crept toward me like a cartoon villain tip-toeing down the hall in front of where I sit. I can hear the music now. That guy feels a song coming…

You Little Snowflake You

After the lovely warm fuzzy fest of yesterday’s award/challenge interlude, I give you: The return of The 25! Today’s addition to that list has a rather familiar smell, gentle viewers. It smells a lot like #2 on the list, which is precision. By following my nose, I deduct they started…

NaNoRebels: Small Name. Big Results.

Why, hello gentle viewers! I’ve had an awesome, inspiring, and encouraging day here in my little world skulking outside D.C. thanks to people from all over the country and the planet. This post might be a wee bit on the scattered side, because there are a couple things I need…

Fuel Up

Most writing advice will tell you to just write every day, no matter what. I don’t always work that way. I go through cycles of immense productivity. There was a night last year where I wrote 12,000 words. That is a lot of words. I’ll plow through whole chapters in…
