Throwing it Out to the Universe

So, I’m pretty sure I have men­tioned this in an off-hand way, but I find I am very excited about the idea, and have actu­ally star­ted plan­ning it. Yep, I am going to get into the self-pub­­l­ish­ing world through what I think of as the back door: I have all the tech­no­logy, and the skill,Con­tin­ue read­ing “Throw­ing it Out to the Uni­verse”

Tossing Ideas Around

I am on break at work and sit­ting with my friend Iveta chat­ting about our vari­ous pro­jects. She is study­ing to be a com­mer­cial pilot, while I am slog­ging my way through book three of my tri­logy, and mak­ing decisions about my writ­ing. I told her my plan to pod­cast my book, and we gotCon­tin­ue read­ing “Toss­ing Ideas Around”

I Found the Problem — Facepalm

For months I have been try­ing to fig­ure out what was wrong with a par­tic­u­lar story of mine. This story received Hon­our­able Men­tion in Writers of the Future, which is fab­ulous, but clearly there is still room for some improve­ment. What improve­ment did it need, though? That was the ques­tion. I had a couple ofCon­tin­ue read­ing “I Found the Prob­lem — Face­palm”

Book 3

I have spent the last few days research­ing how to approach writ­ing a sequel or a tri­logy. This book has been such a chal­lenge I figured I’d bet­ter inject some new ways of think­ing into my pro­cess.

Writing With Friends

  Hon­estly, how can one not get lots of writ­ing done with this inspir­ing view? There’s noth­ing like sit­ting with oth­er ded­ic­ated writers to help you keep your bum in the chair and keep going.

One Thing I Love About Having Adult Kids

I love being able to brain­storm togeth­er and share inform­a­tion. The Girl is writ­ing a play, and I am writ­ing a short story. We are each stuck on some details. How fun is it to talk our ideas through with each oth­er, and ask per­tin­ent ques­tions? Well, it’s quite fun, actu­ally.

Writing Progress Goes Boink!

So it’s a play on the Calv­in & Hobbes book, but whatever. I sub­mit­ted a nov­el to a pub­lish­er today, AND pos­ted my first story on Bund­lerab­bit. SO many items crossed off my To Do list!
