Back to it

Now that Phoenix Comicon is over, it’s time to get back in the swing of things. I’ve got a few submissions to read, critique, and return, a submission of my own to send in, some revision/editing to work on, some critiques from another project to read, and some submissions from that project to read/critique/return as […]

For your viewing pleasure

Here are the pics I’ve taken at the con. They’re mostly just from day one and day two, because my husband and I had our nephews with us today and I didn’t want to ruin their fun by stopping cosplayers for photos when the day was about the boys. And now for a nap! Whew!

Plan of attack

I’ve poured over the programming guide. Looked at everything there is to do for the first couple of hours of con. I am ready to implement the plan… The plan to not plan very much. Yeah, there are a couple of panels I still would like to see. Do I have to see them? Not […]

Relaxing first day at Comicon

It is so nice to go to a Comicon and not really have much planned. The past three years either my husband or both of us have been working for one of the gaming groups, so we have had to squeeze in panels and shopping and entertainment in between the scheduled stuff we were signed […]

Can’t Con-tain the excitement

It’s that time of year again! Time for Phoenix Comicon, the one convention a year that I make every effort to attend. This will be my fourth year in a row attending, and my third year cosplaying. I’ll be wearing some form of cosplay each day of the con, though not all will be very […]

Let Not the Past Repeat Itself

Excerpt from Kamikaze Butterflies: Let Not the Past Repeat Itself Three generations have passed Since the death of a father So great, so grand But not so sound of mind Locked away he was ‘Til the end of his days Until the internal struggle exhausted him And he succumbed Now comes a daughter So great, so […]

Breaking the wall

I think I’ve finally got it. First I couldn’t figure out that nagging paragraph that was the start of the mess, then once I thought I had it figured out, I wasn’t at my computer to fix it. Then, life, as so often happens, got in the way. Now, it’s just me and my computer, […]


That damn screen keeps staring back at me. I’ve been looking at the same paragraph for an hour and still can’t figure out how to fix it. I wouldn’t be so frustrated if it was just a minor issue, but the problem that was pointed out to me is major. I can’t just tweak the […]

Long weekend of hard work

I have a three day weekend coming up, but don’t think I’ll be slacking off the whole time. I’ve got some major changes to make on a certain chapter in my WIP (based on some feedback I’ve received), and depending on how much is changed I may have to make changes in later chapters. That’s […]


That’s kind of how I feel lately. Not like I don’t have a care in the world, but like I can’t seem to make myself care about much of anything in the world these days. Like I’m here physically, but I’m not “here,” y’know? I had wondered why I wasn’t able to stay awake much, […]
