I see comments from different authors, some asking “How do you know what your character would do?” and others saying, “It’s your character, you tell them what to do.” I admit to having a good chuckle at those who believe they control every aspect of their story. I don’t know many who’re published who don’t… Read More Writing Wednesday: Coffee with Characters
I have discovered a thing about how I write. Now, if I can just remember it I think I can make use of it. I can’t write the story AND the emotions at the same time. I keep getting stuck and I couldn’t figure out why. I’d be rolling along until there was an emotion,… Read More Writing Wednesday: Getting the emotions down
I’ve found that it’s common among writers to have random lines pop into our heads at any time of the day or night. It’s just as common, and I’m also guilty of it, to think, “That’s wonderful, I really like that.” Then, the thought vanishes back into the mist.

I’ll figure that out when I get them done. So, at this point, I’ve got Lauren in the afterlife. She’s had a chance to say goodbye… Read More Writing Wednesday: “Half-Life of a Soul” Update!
It doesn’t seem to matter what your line of work is, there is humor tied to it. Today, let’s share laughs, no matter what field you work in. Got a meme? A story? I’ll start us off with a few from different fields.
What’s a “crack fic?” An update on Lauren and Caleb.… Read More Writing Wednesday:Word Count Increases!
Every Wednesday I will post about my own writing journey, or about things related to writing such as tools, blogs and books I like, and so on. … Read More Writing Wednesday
I did it. By the skin of my teeth and with more help from my beta team than I ever dreamed of asking for! (Seriously, ladies, I’d have been so far behind without you!) But I launched Chasing Freedom on December 4th, as promised. Lesson learned: Do not announce release dates when you’ve only written… Read More December update!
