What a whirlwind it’s been lately. Along with a few interviews and advertising features, I think I’ve got almost all my guest-blog posts written and sent out now. It’s been a challenge to try to make each one unique without being an in-your-face Buy My Book post. So far for […]

Five Days and counting down …

Oh dear. Sven is going to come over here and whack me with a stick. No appreciable wordcount yesterday again. Oh, I was working on writing a story, but it was editing again, cutting as opposed to adding. And writing a blurb. And trying to figure out how to get […]

Sorry Sven

Are you doing NaNo or are you sweating to Sven and having problems achieving your wordcount? Dr. has a program on it that uses negative reinforcement to force you to write a certain number of words in a specified time. (You get to choose both time and wordcount goals.) […]

Write or Die

On the home front, it’s been fairly quiet. Curly is bummed because their XBox 360 has broken down yet again. This is their third unit in eighteen months, and is a brand new replacement that’s less than a month old. How can a company stay in business when it creates […]

Weekend update

Wow, it’s the end of the week already. Or is that finally? I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February too! Where has this year gone? I feel like I’ve been in a whirlwind for the past week and haven’t had a chance to sit down. I think I […]

And I thought I’ve accomplished nothing this week…

I used to write a lot of medieval fantasy – my hero always rode his trusty black stallion, and his sidekick usually rode a mare. And when they went to sleep at night, they’d tie their horses to a tree branch. They’d wake up the next morning, untie their horses […]

Writing about a Horse?

LA CIMMERII 3/18/94-11/28/07 I got an email this morning from BlueSue … one that has me in tears, which probably doesn’t even approach how Sue feels right now. She’s had to have one of her mares put down – La Cimmerii or Cimmi. Cimmi was the beautiful black Arabian Blue […]

Farewell to a distant friend

Just got back after a long day in TO (That’s a local shortform for Toronto, for you non-Canucks) And though it was long, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. First the TRW meeting where Claire Delacroix talked about how to write synopsis – something I haven’t tackled yet but know […]

Synopses and sex (horse sex that is)
