Happy Anniversary to Buffy!

Sixteen years ago today, Buffy’s first episode aired. I didn’t have a television for most of the time the series was on, but I still remember the summer I first got into it. I’d just gotten back from Scotland and moved in with a total and complete Buffy fanatic who…

Ready, Set, Go!

I saw today’s prompt on WordPress.com and thought, “What the hell?” I’ll set a timer for ten minutes and see what comes out. If you’re wondering, erm, that was the prompt. With me so far? I liked the prompt because it is its own little double entendre. There’s the very…

Four Years

Back in November, Spouse told me that I had a present for my birthday, but that it wouldn’t happen until January 23. That present was to go see the band Ra Ra Riot at 9:30 Club in DC. This week rolled around, and Spouse hadn’t bought the tickets yet. Then…

Bidding Farewell to the Comfort Zone

  Today is Thorsday (also known in some circles as Thursday), and as such is the day I blog about whatever strikes my fancy.   I was having a conversation with the brilliant N.E. White last night on Gchat, and we talked a little about magical realism. Which, as you…

Time Capsule: A Surprising Prompt

I don’t often blog off of prompts. I usually fly by the seat of my threadbare sweats and write whatever I goll darn feel like writing. I opened up my computer today to write le blog. I thought about describing my rewatch of Pride and Prejudice and how this moment:…

Welcome, welcome, to today’s edition of Sunday, My Prints Will Come! If you’ve never been here on a Sunday before, well, Sundays are for writers round these parts. I know, I know. I cheated a bit this week, what with the pitch talk and all the biz shtick. Whoops. I’ll…

#PitchMAS, #PitchWars, and the Query Trenches

It is Thorsday, so I shall write what I want — and what I want to write about today is part of the writing business. Pitching. No, not like baseball or cricket. You don’t want the end result to be someone smacking your work away with a bat. But the…

5 Fantasy Elements I’m Thankful Not To Have

We’re ten days into November, gentle viewers. Ten days into the fury of National Novel Writing Month. Ten days closer to turkey and pie comas. Ten days closer to my looming day of birth. And ten days closer to the next massive festival of political trebuchets. (Kidding. You can continue…
