8 Sentence Sunday #11

Posted Apr 14 2013 in , , , ,

Continuing right where I left off last week, Griffin has shown up at Indy’s house in the middle of the night because she snuck out after they had sex. He’s mad and looking for answers.                       “I’m pissed because you snuck out of my house. […]

Refueling

Posted Mar 20 2013 in , , , , ,

I’ve been crazy busy for a while now. Such is the life of a debut author. For all of you who picture authors sitting around in PJs eating bon-bons and tapping away on the computer, hold onto that dream. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a writer. It’s hard work, harder than most people […]

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 […]

Making Your Muse Work

Posted Sep 4 2012 in , , , , , , , , ,

Among writers, the discussion of a muse is one that comes up often. You will hear writers (many of whom have yet to finish a MS) say that they couldn’t write because their muse wouldn’t cooperate or that they had writer’s block. I’m not sure I believe in either of these concepts. I think creative […]

Friday Favorites – Catching Up

Posted Aug 31 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Now that the kids are back in school, I’m doing my best to catch up and get back into my regular routine of blogging. Not an easy task. I spent way to much time attempting to read the backlog of blogs and finally gave up. I really, really hope I didn’t miss anything vital. I […]

Friday Favorites – 8/3

Posted Aug 3 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m too lazy to come up with a real title for my blog post today. I’m trying to get ready for Shorty’s slumber party this weekend. So while I type away, my girls are downstairs cleaning. Yeah, you read that right, they’re cleaning. Voluntarily even. I’m also in the middle of copy edits for MORE […]

Friday Favorites – Writing, Photos, and Kissing

Posted Jul 27 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s been a very busy week in the blogiverse. Between writers getting sued and RWA National conference, blogs have been filled with excellent advice. First up, unless you’ve been buried for the past week, I’m sure you’ve heard about Roni Loren’s post about how a photographer sued her for using one of his photographs without […]

Friday Favorites – Lots of Romance in the News

Posted Jul 13 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m still behind in my blog reading and what makes it worse is that we’re at that point in the summer where the kids are a little bonkers. They’re restless even though we go out plenty and when they’re not fighting with each other, they go out of their way to irritate me. This is […]

Friday Favorites – Still Busy

Posted Jul 6 2012 in , , , , , , , , ,

I have been horribly behind in my blog reading. I’ve been struggling to get my own words written, as I said in yesterday’s post. I’ve been plugging away at it, knowing that sooner or later, everything will click into place and the words and pace will pick up. In the meantime, I’m reading and hanging […]

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 […]
