Wednesday Writing Journal: 2012-10-31

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 the mess). I hardly write ...

Monday Muse: 2012-10-29

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. Muse: You’ve been ignoring me. Me: How so? ...

Wednesday Writing Journal: 2012-10-24

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 week.” So… I’m heaving a ...

Monday Muse: 2012-10-22

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 took place a couple of ...

Thanks to Kimberly Evans’s photography and Mike Reid’s layout skills, we have a cover ready! The anthology itself will be coming out near the end of November (exact date ...

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 and $200 more on the ...

CSFWG YouTube Channel

I just finished launched a YouTube channel for the Colorado Springs Fiction Writers Group. The “only” thing up there is a series of videos that weigh in at 2 1/2 hours long. The topic matter is the Hero’s Journey. If you’re not familiar with this story structure, then you may want to check out the ...

NaNoSubMo

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 Month. Or… wait for it… ...

Author Fest Recap

I had a great time at Author Fest of the Rockies this past weekend. I attended the conference in the role of moderator and general helper around the place, and had the great joy of attending quite a few great sessions in which I learned quite a bit. The first session of the conference was ...
