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.
Let me know if I'm posting too many of these but since I've been writing every day my thoughts are full of writing-related things and this is where I go to vent them.

Well, I thought things would get back to normal after my son got over Influenza A, but nothing is ever that easy, is it? Poor kid had one good day last week, then came down with the stomach flu. 😦 Fortunately, he's come out on the other side a little tired, but functional. Ready for… Continue reading Writing and Goals: An even minier update?
Just had sort of an ah-ha moment listening to the the Writing Excuses podcast. For those of you not familiar with this cast, it's a group of published writer, from different genres, discussing different aspects of the writing process.
