    Comparison vs Acceptance of Self

    I saw this quote today, and it truly spoke to me. Likely because it’s something I’ve been thinking about lately, and because I honestly believe it’s true. Here’s the thing: it’s no great secret that all of us are different. That means the path our life leads us on – personally and professionally – will…

  • Changing Tracks: From Drafting To Revision

    So this week I finally finished the extremely ugly first draft of my latest WIP (tentatively called FROZEN STAR.) Which means that now suddenly I have to switch from drafting-brain to revision. It sometimes make me secretly suspect, especially when I consider the kind of revision I’ve undertaken previously, that somehow or other I was…

  • An Open Letter to My First Draft WIP

    Dear WIP, Why are you being so freaking disagreeable? I know we haven’t known each other long, only about 40,000 words or so. And I know I haven’t spent as much time with you as you’d like, but I’ve made all the changes, deleted characters you didn’t care for, even changed ones I liked, but…

    Writing When The Words Don’t Flow

    So you know how there’s some days where the words seem to come to you faster than you can possibly write them down? Yeah, and you know about those other days too, right? The ones when you suddenly find yourself fascinated by laundry, and all the things you’ve happily ignored all week, like housecleaning, email,…

  • Need a Title? Here’s a Title!

    Here’s the thing: I’m not great at coming up with titles. Heck, I suck at coming up with titles. And I have read some great ideas about how to come up with a title. A few weeks ago, a GH sister, Pintip Dunn, had a great post over at Waterworld Mermaids, asking “What’s in a…

  • Inspiration from the past, and all the stuff I didn’t think I wanted to learn

    So this week I’ve been plotting like mad, and the new book has required me to create not only the regular kind of things for a book (overall plot and characters, romantic and character arches, etc), but also something more: I’ve had to create the entire world my story takes place in, down to planets…
