OMG! This outlining method changed my life! So, I've been watching Kat @Kat_tastic for several years. A couple months ago she started a weekly writing vlog series showing her process while she drafted a new manuscript. During this vlog she talked a lot, and I'd heard her mention it before but didn't take much notice… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 8
Whoops! I fell off the wagon again. Sorry it's so late but it's been a hectic month already. Halloween, our son turned 14 on the first, he had a sleepover on the second to the third, after which we did a crap ton of shopping, and spent yesterday with family! So, with all of that,… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for October
The context: Someone in a bookish Facebook group I'm in posted this comic. I'd link to the post but it was deleted by the admins. People had a lot of problems with it. Mostly centered around hating that it perpetuated the "not-like-other-girls" trope. Some said it was sexist. Some said it ignored those who like… Continue reading Let me tell you a story

I love writing but it might be the death of me. After finishing book 2 of my dragon series, I realized it was time to give book 1 a new name. That's where I'm going to start this post so I can easily reference it (SPOILER: I never reference it LOL) FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS… Continue reading If I die, my book did it. Meet my murders.

I've been deep in the revision trenches this last week and as a result have been completely unable to come up with a blog topic. So, I took to Twitter and asked for a topic. Honestly, I didn't think I'd get a response but I was happy to be wrong. Chris Williams asked how about… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 7 – #amwriting thoughts on making writing a career
It took 3 fewer weeks than I planned and about 13K fewer words but it doesn't matter because I reached the end of my WIP! The rough draft, that is. 😉 Remember, this is really rough. There are so many placeholders. There's an entire sequence that will most likely consist of multiple scenes that is… Continue reading #WIPWednesday Writing update: Rough draft complete!
I love Walton's The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender and been wanting to pick this one up for awhile! I already own the paperback of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell but I couldn't pass up those deckled edges 😍 Picked these two up on @FictionNoChaser recommendation! They sound so good! Apparently, everyone hates… Continue reading Ahhh!!! #Bookhaul
