Horrormance

Writers face many challenges. One that might not be as well-known among readers is how we agonize over where our books fit in to the grand world of fiction. I've rarely met a writer who hasn't at one point wondered what genre they should use to help readers connect with their works. So, what do... Continue Reading →

Waiting to Decapitate (a character)

A writer's life is a strange thing. I don't usually realize it until other people point it out to me. I'm having tons of fun writing the second Blades of Janus book, immersing myself in the world and lives of these characters I love so dearly. Over the weekend, I was talking to a friend,...

Tropes: I’m doing it wrong!

One of the more illuminating (and entertaining) obstacles in my writing path lately was learning about tropes. I've known about tropes in a vague sort of way for a while, but set out to really understand them a few months back. I love taking expectations and turning them on their heads. I thought after I...

When you become lost

There is so much information available to us today. Facts and opinions, trends and data sets, paths and experiences laid out by others that are so tempting to follow. It's easy to become overwhelmed or even lost. Both in writing and RL, I've been digging my way deeper and deeper into rabbit holes of information... Continue Reading →

I'm going to use this time to focus on things I want to strengthen and grow as the moon waxes full. My writing,... Continue Reading →

Why I Blog

After writing a post of almost a thousand words about why I haven't really blogged since last year, I finally hit on the epiphany I needed to write this one. The reason I do blog in the first place. Blogging is my favorite way to talk to myself. I know, that sounds weird. I interact... Continue Reading →

New Words are Happening!

Not like in the "setting intentions" sense that I talked about last week. I'm talking word count words on a new WIP! And they are piling up quick. My stress levels seem to go down with each word I get out on the page. Maybe that's why I've racked up over 4000 words in three... Continue Reading →
