Use Your Words

Happy November, gentle viewers! Here we go. NaNoWriMo is revving its engines and ready to go, I’m ready to make this an awesome month. Here’s who has joined us on the Rebel front: Nila E. White Kristin whose last name I just spaced (or don’t know) Alexandra Roman de Hernandez…

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…

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,…

Writing the Big Bad Image

Writing the Big Bad

There’s always gotta be the bad guy. Whether they’re downright evil or just your run of the mill schoolyard bully, creating a believable antagonist is as essential to a good story as say…the stuf to an Oreo. They’re a source of motivation, angst, plot propellers, and wicked fun. If you…

An Ode to Revision Image

An Ode to Revision

I spent a long time dreading the task of revising my novel.  I think every writer has at some point dreamed of creating a flawless first draft that will liberate her from criticism and have a Pulitzer waiting as she types the final keystrokes (or scrawls the final words with…

New Spring Image

New Spring

These times, they are a-changin’. Beyond the fact that we are fresh into a new season, trundling along in a newish year, et cetera, I get the feeling that there are good things coming my way. I wrote a while back about feeling how moving to Maryland was like stepping…

Working Out Image

Working Out

Turns out, it’s actually a bit of a workout.  Go figure. After literally six weeks of laying around on my arse, I decided it was about time to get off it and try to lose some of the weight that made itself known to me as I attempted to pour…

New Project Image

New Project

I started this new project several months ago, sort of as an exercise.  It’s an autobiographical piece with a rather lyrical turn of phrase, poetic in parts, somewhat experimental.  It’s pretty special, because it’s going to be a gift.  I’m copying it into a leather journal I bought, which is…

Just a Spoonful of Sugar

I don’t know if it was the sugar, but I did make some progress today.  I got about 1,400 words done in Elemental in the last hour or so, which, aside from meaning I’m again up way too late, is encouraging.  I’m going to try and do more later this…

Goal Fail Image

Goal Fail

I haven’t been keeping up with my end of the bargain and writing 1000 words per day the last few days.  Beginning Saturday, I think.  So that puts me about 3,000 behind.  Bugger. I have been feeling a bit under the weather, partly due to my neck injury, but if…
