Life blew up on me this past week. I had some time to write, but no energy. All of my energy went into causing a crisis, recovering from said crisis, and dealing with a few other crises that arose that I had no involvement in (other than to clean up [...]

I'm going to start a weekly writing journal of what's inspired me to write, what I've written, and all that good stuff. The primary reason I'm doing this is so that I won't have to show up here every week and report, "I'm sorry, but I didn't write anything this [...]

From time to time, my muse rears her head and talks to me. I've managed to capture some of these conversations and am sharing them with you. I will warn you that my muse is a potty-mouth. I have no control over what she tells me. Sorry. This particular conversation [...]

2012-10-15T14:26:14-06:00October 15th, 2012|Conferences, Mile Hi Con|Comments Off on Mile Hi Con Coming Up!

This weekend, I'll be off to Mile Hi Con. It's only up the road in Denver, but I don't want to miss out on the late night and early morning festivities. This means I'm getting a hotel room at the event location. Strange how I'll spend $40 on a conference [...]

I'm not participating in NaNoWriMo this year. It's not because I don't believe in the process of encouraging writers. It's because I have different plans this year! I've decided to submit Warmaiden to one agent or editor each day in the month of November. I'm calling this National Novel Submission [...]
