Throwback: I AM therefore I write

Following is a post from May 24, 2008.  I had had my blog for several months, but was still finding my way.  [And, frankly, I’m still finding my way but the journey is fun.  I don’t know that I really want to make my destination.]  I’m re-posting for two reasons: (1) to remind myself how […]

8 Things You Need To Know About Character Arcs

This is a wonderful post for all of you currently writing fiction and needing advice/suggestions about character arcs. As I was reading Debbie’s post, I realized that I provided different arcs for different characters in my last two NaNoWriMo novels.

This is my cat Junior. He looks very innocent, doesn’t he? Very sweet, very “who me?” But right now he’s ramping up his piercingly plaintive cry for food (what else) and the other two (Maxine and Luisa) are pacing and chirping (yes, cats can make little noises that sound like chirps) because they also want […]

I’m paddling away on my novel for Camp NaNoWriMo! Current word count is 16,239!  At this rate, I’ll make 50,000 by May 11.   So, I have a hell of a lot more paddling to do 🙁

8538 (and counting)

I didn’t think I would have it in me to write today.  Last night (or rather this morning) I was up until 1 AM.  Fortunately I had the day off work, but I kept napping and we had “stuff” to do so I didn’t get to writing again until late.  I thought for sure I […]

A Kick-Ass Tool for Writing

Here’s one of the side benefits of Twitter:  The discovery of writing tools proven to do what they profess to do:  get you and keep you writing.  (Is it OK to have two colons in one sentence?)  Check out Dr Wicked’s Write or Die, a web-based tool for writing.  It did take me a moment […]

Blogging is fun!

My most favorite blogger, John Hewitt, has a delightful post about why he loves blogging more than freelancing. He gives five reasons: (1) he doesn’t have to send out query letters; (2) he can write about whatever he wants; (3) he doesn’t have to answer to an editor; (4) he can get published when he […]
