Waiting with beta’d breath

Well, my #novel is off to two beta readers, and the first has already finished reading it. I was asleep when he asked for my email address last night (and given the time of day I woke up today, he most likely is asleep now) so it will be a bit before I get my #critique […]

Abstraction

I don’t know why, but I’m stuck on these abstract forms lately. Here’s the latest one It started as an abandoned sketch that I thought I couldn’t salvage, but today I looked at it again and decided to give it another go. I like how it turned out. In fact, I really want to get […]

For Pleasure Only

Oh, get your heads out of the gutter. I’m talking about #reading. I’ve done so much reading of my own work and others’ for critique for so long, I’m finally taking a little bit more time here and there to read for myself. Darynda Jones has an incredible urban fantasy/supernatural series about a modern-day grim […]

Full plate

Lots going on in the land of me. I had two moles biopsied yesterday (results should be back within a week). A phone #interview with a band pending this Saturday that I need to prep for. Two movie #reviews I need to work on (one I have to wait until Friday because it’s released then). […]

Editorial

Well, it’s finally back–my editor (aka my mom) has finished with her first round of editing on my novel, and I’ve finished reading her edits. As is natural with any writer/editor arrangement, I didn’t agree with all her suggested changes. That’s just how it goes. I have my phrases that I thought were just genius, and […]

Gluttonous vs ravenous

So here it is: am I a fatty because I eat to much, or do I eat too much because I’m #hungry all the time? I mean all the time. I very rarely am full, and when I am it’s not for very long. Something in my brain is constantly telling me that my stomach is […]

Model behavior

I may not be model-thin, but I’m becoming increasingly comfortable with my appearance. Today’s society is so self-absorbed, and the portion of society that isn’t buying into the #selfie craze is dissing the #selfers (new word–Shakespeare did it, and I’m claiming writer’s rights to do it as well). Me? I’m a little bit of both. […]

Pending….

Remember all those Flash Fiction Fridays I posted a while back? Well, I decided to gather them up–along with a couple of short stories I wrote–and put together an anthology to publish on Amazon Kindle. It’s not available yet; it takes about 12 hours or so to be available for download. Still, that will make […]
