Lots to do

Today is going to be a busy day, so I may not get much #writing done. Have to get ready for the day, fuel up the car, do laundry, deal with apartment drama, and if I have time, go to the post office…and hopefully get back to work on a #cosplay. It doesn’t need much, […]

Plan of action

Today I have a half day at work. My plan? Writing, of course! Provided, that is, I can keep our new kitten from chewing on the laptop cord. Or the laptop itself…. That’s right, little Rory appears to be teething. Ah, the joys of having a kitten. He’s 100% worth it, though. How do you […]

Prompted

Here is the #flashfiction I wrote from the prompt yesterday. Enjoy 🙂 Blessed to Death by AJ Mullican It was an otherwise ordinary night: me, home alone, watching a horror movie that I knew would scare the pants off of me.

Writing inspiration Wednesday

As a compliment to #MemeMonday, I’m going to be starting #WritingInspirationWednesday here on my blog.

Done in a flash

Wrote a piece of flash fiction today, working off of a prompt provided by a friend of mine. It’s not the sort of thing I usually do; I prefer to write based on my own inspirations, not a prompt, but this one inspired me. My novel, however, has re-stalled after a couple hundred words added […]

Lies we tell ourselves

I keep telling myself that I’m going to write more–then I stare at the screen as it mocks me. There are always those little white lies we tell ourselves to make us think we’re going to make progress. I’m going to eat less, work out more. I’m going to finish the next Great American Novel. […]

Fingers crossed

I know it’s been a few days since I’ve posted, but it’s been a busy few days. In addition to adding another thousand plus words to my novel, I also finished and submitted a short story for a magazine 🙂 I don’t know if it will get published, but I had to try. If I […]
