I'm writing this on Thursday (because I have time). I discovered that Canva has "book cover" templates, and while I have no use what so ever for making book covers, I just got all starry eyed and wasted some time. And made this: IT'S SHINY. Though, it is a little more "perky" than the novel … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 26
It's Saturday morning (last Saturday morning if you want to know). I wake up late (as does everyone) because last night we went to see Fellowship of the Ring (EXTENDED BABY) at the drive-in and I didn't get to sleep till around 2:30 (probably was pushing 3am). I was sitting in the back of my … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 25
Wow what a day. (I write this Friday afternoon). (Been running around to like 4 stores merchandising. I've been out since 9 o'clock in the morning) (Ooh and my new couch came) (The FedEx guy hates me) (I mean it's a giant box. You could fit like four of me in there. Maybe more). (It's … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24
(I must issue my apologies for not posting last Saturday. My brain was going to implode, and I had nothing to say but scream in you faces gibberish such as, "AFHGJLLK" So, I didn't. If you've got nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.) Have'd some adventure recently. Kayaking, more drive-ins ("Where have … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22
Didn't I JUST do my May wrap up? And yet, May seems like kinda a long time ago, and June felt like a normalish length month. (oh hey, my laptop is still moving slow and the words are taking f o r e v e r to show up. Yay *eyes light on fire*) So, … Continue reading June Wrap Up (didn’t we just do this with May???)
Another novel finished, another novel in the bag. (at least a first draft) I finished The Michigan Triangle this week, and that makes it my *digs out calculator* my 9th novel. The 6th first draft of a novel I've written in 4ish years. (I think I did that math right) UM, wow what? And how … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol, 16
Ok so I watched the 2019 Little Women. I expected to either have a really ANGRY review of how much I hated it, or a GUSHING review of how much I loved it. And I'm just....meh??? Like I don't have many feelings about it? There was a lot I really, really, really liked. And I … Continue reading Little Women 2019: I came, I watched, I had thoughts
Thanksgiving is around the corner, with pies and cooked birds and weird, jelly-like cranberry sauce. Time to be thankful about things before Black Friday hits and we start being greedy for things and deals and Christmas presents and vacuum cleaners. Books are one of the things I'm thankful for, especially for all the "important" things … Continue reading Thank You to Books and All the “Important” Things They Taught Me
First of all, September is my favorite month because it's my birthday month and also the start of fall (the scientists are wrong. Fall starts September 1st). September was...September? Like pretty normal stuff. Swan Lake, editing *cries*, reading (Ebola and a book on the Armenian Genocide. Yeah, I like to read fun stuff), dinosaurs, and … Continue reading How was September? What is October? IS THAT NANOWRIMO I SMELL???
I don't know about anyone else, but I LOVE reading nonfiction. Evidence: Writers are constantly berated with the fact that they need to read fiction. That they need to read within their genre. And WE DO NEED TO READ FICTION. I mean, we make fiction, so we better be familiar with it. But you know … Continue reading Should You Read Nonfiction as a Fiction Writer?
