RT Wrap-Up #2

Posted May 17 2013 in , , , , ,

I had planned to post this earlier this week, but then page proofs for A GOOD TIME landed at my door, so my days have been filled with proofreading. Last week I wrote about all the cool and fun things from RT. This post will be about the actual workshops and panels I attended. At […]

Making a Book Worth Re-reading

Posted Nov 6 2012 in , , , , , ,

It’s that time of year again — NANOWRIMO, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. I’ve never participated in NANO mostly because I feel like I’d be setting myself up for failure. When doing NANO, you’re supposed to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For me, that’s a little over half a book. Is it […]

Fan Fiction

Posted Oct 31 2012 in , , , , ,

Okay, so I’m still digging out from deadline stuff. I managed to not only turn in page proofs for More Than This (early), but I also got book 2 safely in the hands of my editor (also a little early). And I accomplished this with a sick kid home from school all last week. Right […]

Friday Favorites – Banned Books, Anniversaries, and Fun

Posted Oct 5 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This past week was Banned Books week. For those of you who might not be aware, Banned Books week celebrates openmindedness. As a teacher, I loved Banned Books week. I started the year with a whole unit on Banned Books. The great thing about it was that I taught kids who were amazed that books […]

Friday Favorites – The It’s Been A While Edition

Posted Sep 28 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been swamped between the new school year, cheerleading, figuring out promotion for MORE THAN THIS, and thinking about starting something new. So while I’ve been active on Twitter, Friday Favorites hasn’t been happening because I fell behind on blog reading. I’m running late writing this now, but I did finally catch up on blogs. […]

Writing Spaces and Processes

Posted Aug 28 2012 in , , , , , ,

I’m finally feeling like I’m getting back into the groove of things. Kids are back in school and I finally feel like I can establish some routine (although that might just be wishful thinking on my part). Last night at my RWA chapter meeting, one of our members, Allie Pleiter, presented what she calls her […]

RWA and awards

Posted Aug 2 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

I’m still slacking on my usual Thursday TV posts. Of course, I’m still watching lots of TV, but haven’t thought about what to write. So today, I’m going to write about what should’ve been Tuesday’s post. Last week was RWA’s (Romance Writers of America) national conference. I mentioned it last week and I followed #RWA12 […]

Sorry for the lack of a good title for today’s post. My brain just isn’t into titles right now. Here are your links for great reading this week: Book stuff: Over at The Naked Hero, Amy Andrews touches on a hot button issue. Is it ever okay for a hero to cheat? Is it a […]

Friday Favorites – Slacker Edition

Posted Jun 8 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , ,

As the title suggests, I’m still slacking. I think it’s going to take me awhile to get used to the whole summer schedule. In the past, all I had to squeeze in around my kids was my work-from-home day job and my writing. Now, I’m teaching part-time and trying (and not necessarily succeeding) my hand […]

Friday Favorites – Hello and Goodbye

Posted May 11 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m running late with today’s post because my modem decided to go crazy yesterday. Just stopped working (while I was in the middle of finalizing lesson plans for last night). Then it started working again hours later. Needless to say, a new modem is in my very near future. So many good things to read […]
