The Thing About Professionalism

Okay, so I’m sure you’ve all read about the author meltdown that was all over the internet yesterday.  Suffice to say this woman has ruined her career and if she does want to publish, will have to go under a different name.  It’s a shame because a reaction like hers where she tells commenters not […]

Yeah . . . #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. So not much writing since Sunday.  Why?  Errands, some housework and I’ve been trying to get on an exercise schedule again.  I suppose I had some ten or fifteen minute pockets of time available, but […]

No Snazzy Title, Just My #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. Not much to report.  I’m still moving along and probably won’t be on the computer much today except to keep writing.  We’re in the home stretch and I want to finish strong.  Back I go. […]

My First Taste of Rejection From a Friend

#ROW80 Update Plus a Reading Recommendation

The Power of Music #ROW80 Update

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working. Previously on the ROW80 update, I mentioned getting a smart phone and it has proved to be a wonderful tool to waste time with.  Haven’t found any writing apps I like, but I did find […]

My New Author Friends: Love Series Part 8

That’s right!  The last part of my series is all about you! There’s something special about creative communities that reminds me of my experience at Comic Con last year.  The event is huge.  So big in fact, that the convention center you’re walking into seems like a small town.  And this town is full of […]
