I’m always looking for the best way to keep up with my writing while traveling. Did I say traveling? Okay. Fine. I meant hiking. The idea of hiking a long trail hasn’t left me, but the thought of coming home and finding a tower of handwritten material waiting to be typed? **shudder** Ask me about
The awesome co-hosts for the January 5 posting of the IWSG are Erika Beebe, Olga Godim, Sandra Cox, Sarah Foster, and Chemist Ken! My good news for the month is that the story I sold to Tales to Terrify is finally available in the latest episode (Episode 518, for people who are reading this
By the time you read this, I’ll be knee-deep in Nanowrimo. I wrote my first (now well and truly trunked) novel during Nanowrimo, and ever since then, Nano has been a time to try new things in my writing. There’s something about the idea that it’s only a month that seems made for experimentation.
Yesterday, it finally hit me how close Nanowrimo is getting, and how little I have prepared for it. I’m knee deep in a revision, and I just hadn’t thought about it.

The awesome co-hosts for the January 6 posting of the IWSG are Ronel Janse van Vuuren , J Lenni Dorner, Gwen Gardner Sandra Cox, and Louise – Fundy Blue! January 6 question – Being a writer, when you’re reading someone else’s work, what stops you from finishing a book/throws you out of the story/frustrates you the most about other people’s books?
Do you ever run out of really good words for “reanimated corpse?” It seems like I have a hierarchy of risen dead in the project I’m revising, and my vocabulary is coming up a little short. The internet is a wonderful place. Not only do I have friends who are not currently worrying about my
It is nearly August, and I am a disappointment to my Fitbit, and an embarrassment to my revision. Exactly what have I been doing with my time? Heck if I know. Turning the character who dies into an actual, on-screen character instead of someone who’s just referred to by others. Contemplating whether the whole thing
April 1 question – The IWSG’s focus is on our writers. Each month, from all over the globe, we are a united group sharing our insecurities, our troubles, and our pain. So, in this time when our world is in crisis with the covid-19 pandemic, our optional question this month is: how are things in
