A Mountain of Words

Today my friend Kristin McFarland’s agent (SQUEE! This is new news!) Eric Ruben responded to me on Twitter with something that made me ponder. I had asked my writer and agent followers (more of the former than the latter, heh!) for craft book recommendations. I have a whole stack of…

The Clarity of Years

Yesterday, my good friend and blogger Kristin McFarland had a post that made me sit and ponder for a while. She talked about her defining moments as a writer, from childhood through now. Some of you may know that Kristin and I are slogging through what I call the Query…

What’s Your Fantasy? Image

What’s Your Fantasy?

Yesterday I posed the question: What characters from literature did you have a crush on growing up? I had heaps. Some of the names I don’t remember, because it was twenty years ago. Others I know so well, I would recognise them on the street if I passed them. I…

How To Lose A Fantasy Reader

I grew up reading fantasy. Beginning with Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain and leading to David Eddings’ Belgariad and Malloreon as well as Tolkein and Bruce Coville and  Robert Jordan (with some Terry Goodkind sprinkled in for good measure), I read my way through thousands of pages, heaps of characters,…

The Mysterious Other

Ahoy, mateys. Here be some spoilers. I’ve been watching a lot of Lost lately. It took me years to finally give in and watch this show that took America by the throat for six years. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m hooked. Yep, that sharp barb of a…

Things That Go Bump

I remember when I first started reading Kim Harrison‘s Hollows series. At first, I was put off by the idea of pixies. All I could think of were squeaky voices and Tinkerbell — but then Jenks turned out to be a trash-talking, dust-making badass who had a family of over…

Chillers, Thrillers, and Killers

What better way to spend Terror Tuesday than talking about the ones that make it all happen? I just finished reading Writing the Breakout Novel and am in the middle of Bullies, Bastards, and Bitches right now, and it’s left me pondering what makes a strong antagonist. When I think back over…

Find the Magic Image

Find the Magic

I found myself pondering today. The sort of pondering that comes after a particularly strange dream, perhaps one in which I’m waiting tables but end up driving up a mountain and getting bitten by mosquitoes while talking to regulars who haven’t shaved their scruff in a while. That sort of…

All I Want For Christmas… Image

All I Want For Christmas…

Okay, so I don’t celebrate Christmas in a religious sense. We already took down our tree to rearrange our living room for our brand new Kinect (thanks to Spouse’s parents for that one!), and we had Chinese for lunch. I’m also making a Harry Potter themed dinner for us from…

Birthing the Baby Elephant

Baby Elephant, Take One. (That reference will come clear a bit later.) (I just erased about 150 words.) I woke up this morning knowing that I wanted to write about a certain quote, which I will share in a bit. And when I sat down to do it, my brain…
