I Wear My Sunglasses At Night

Time to wrap up The 25, folks! And we’re going to do it with style. No, really. The last bit is style. 25. Style Writers sometimes speak of style as if it were an ingredient to be added to their story or poem or memoir. Instead, style is the thing…

Watch Your Mouth

It’s going to do a trick! Sorry. I’m just chock-full of the bad puns lately. You can smack my wrist if you must. Well, gentle viewers, we are back to The 25 for the penultimate day! Aren’t you excited?! I sure am. Though I’m going to have to start nosing…

The Wee Hours

Well, to me it is. I seldom see this side of noon excepting when I sneak up on it from behind, or if I have to be at work at 10. And even then, I repress any morning experiences for the first two hours — by then it’s afternoon, and…

Do You Feel What I Feel?

The last few bits and bobs from The 25 have dealt with creating an experience beyond the words of a story. It’s the difference between standing in line at the DMV and standing in line for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Studios — they both get you…

Time, Time, Time Image

Time, Time, Time

Time is what turns kittens into cats. It’s also something that tends to run out on you and leave you naked and wondering why you ended up in the grocery store with no clothes on. It’s because you didn’t have time to get dressed, silly. The problem with my work…

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…

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…

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,…

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…
