The abyss is staring back

So I’ve been not so much rewriting as rearranging Red Witch. No new scenes, just a new timeline for scenes. Occasionally, I switch POV or squash a few together, or extend something, but nothing new. Until today. I knew this was coming. After all, the point of this rearrangement is that I needed more action sequences. […]

Well, that wasn’t a total waste

So yesterday, I was all set to finish that Chelsea story for next month’s newsletter. I sat down, pandora station running, Pinterest on the right board… and then I found a new author photo. So, naturally, I spent three hours updating all my social media and reformatting the author’s page for all my ebooks. Today, though… I’m still […]

Procrastination

I’m at it again. And there’s only so much that I can blame on the Sims. I have to finish coloring the comic so Ashley Jane can add in all the shading and details, and I’m still pruning the word ‘was’ from Last Call. I should be able to finish that today… at least the […]

Writer’s Block

No, I’m not suffering from it, at the moment. Just thinking about it… instead of writing. I think it’s a real thing. I know authors who don’t. They really think that if you just sit and force yourself to write, any thing, you’ll get over it. And I smile and nod when they say this, […]

This is bad

So there’s something up with WordPress today (formatting on the input page is different or off or something), and I was so excited. Yay! I get out of writing my blog. Why? Because once again, no topic. I’m just doing what I do. Read, write, edit, repeat… until my head melts. And I’m, once again, acutely aware […]

The Master is back

Surprisingly, the title is not a Doctor Who reference. No, I am the master procrastinator. Especially when it comes to writing my fight scenes. And here I am, right on the edge of witches taking on an enraged spirit, and I find myself contemplating my novels. I haven’t worked on them in over a year. I’ve been having […]

Still troping

So, I was trying to prove a point, that even if you don’t know about tropes, you still use them. And I went over a friend’s chapter, literally listing tropes as I went. Now people are asking me to do their chapters, with discussion of the tropes in question. Which is surprisingly exhausting, as well […]

No Focus

My writer buddies are gonna roll their eyes at me, because this is all I’ve been talking about today, but I have no focus. Also, no drive. Usually, I’m busting out 10k words a week, while critiquing all my friends’ stuff, and happily snarking my way through life. The last few weeks though, I’ve barely been writing 1k, […]

I am going to finish this series!

So I’ve started the finale for the last set of Mina and Matty stories, and  I got an idea an other funny short. I got some words on paper today and promptly put it aside to work on the covers for my Hedge Doctor series. *sigh* Yes, I’m procrastinating, again. I swear I’ll get the damn […]
