After a few weekends in a row of scheduled things, these last two days have been fantastic. Maybe I’m bragging, but I want to share this, anyway. You don’t have to read it. Feel free to walk away. Close the tab. No? Still here? Then no bitching allowed. Saturday was unexpectedly beautiful. Weather-wise and otherwise. Got […]
Given the crazy weather lately, it figures that the end of the world should arrive on a day this sunny and (relatively) warm. Seriously, how many times has the world ended over the last few years? Is anyone else finding this a little repetitive? On that note, I would like to announce (for those of […]
My days-I-have-not-written now number two. Sunday night, I found out a series I’d been wanting to read had all the ebooks on sale. So I bought them. Six books. Read them in three days. You know, with sleeping, eating, and working. Maybe I only got four hours of sleep last night, but I finished! Now […]
What Gets You Creating?
The best thing about great stories is that they inspire more stories. It’s the same with any art form. My favorite K-drama (Faith, in case you were wondering) always does this: I get fantastic ideas, mostly leaning more towards film project things, and productivity when not staring at a screen soars. The last week or […]
Books! So Many Books…
I’m sitting here, staring at my to-read shelf (one of them, at any rate), and realizing that I got a great, huge bag of books at World Fantasy Con in Toronto. And that I can count on one hand the number of those I’ve read. I’m talking about WFC 2012. 2012! As I am now […]
Reading List 2013
I fell behind on reading this year. 50 books isn’t usually that much of a stretch for me, but I’ve been so busy writing . . . It feels good to be able to say that. An inordinate amount of the books on this list are YA. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; I […]
Ice! Fire! Lobster!
Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. This Robert Frost poem — at least, these first two lines of it — have been stuck in my head off and on for at least a year now. Now, I finally have an opportunity to use it! In my last post, I […]
Happy Announcing Day!
. . . It’s still the first of the month, right? Happy All Hallows, happy first day of November, happy first day of NaNo, happy fifth anniversary to me and my husband, and . . . Happy Kickstarter launch day! Don’t know what I’m talking about? That’s ok, because it’s been a Super Secret project […]
You Can Tell I’m A Fantasy Writer
I came across a book the other day at work titled Small Craft Advisory. Now normally, you’d think that meant the book had something to do with boats. (It did.) My brain? It went something like this: Brain: Awesome! That’s a great name for a book on witchcraft! Me: (After taking a second look.) No, […]
I Do Not Have To Justify Myself To You
Speaking of insecurities, I could catalog mine all day. Ever make a major life decision without necessarily knowing how important it may or may not turn out to be? Then spend what seems the rest of your life trying to explain it so you won’t be judged and found wanting? Yeah, the subject of my […]
