Balancing Act

With all the things going on in our house with the remodel, we've been discombobulated in the rest of the house. This means my crocheting has been stashed away. So I haven't really been crocheting at all. Love a great yarn sale... Now there are two things which sooth me - crocheting and writing. There's … Continue reading Balancing Act

Short Story part 3

I realized last night when I couldn't sleep I need to transition better for my third chapter. I thought about how I could transition and had no idea. It's part of why I was up late late... Today I got back into the story and created the transition I needed. It turned out beautifully and … Continue reading Short Story part 3

Short Story Progress part 2

I had free time over the weekend. I should have been writing but the words just didn't come. This happens to me when I finish things. I finished the other short story - alien prison planet.

Writing Vacation Day 2

At 3:30 am I gave up on finishing my story. I thought - finish this escaping scene and then one more and I'll be done. Easy breezy. Right? Nope. Can't be that simple. I finished the scene and wrote more. I was woken up at 8:30. A dangerous thing to do when I planned to … Continue reading Writing Vacation Day 2

Manuscript Progress

Procrastination is a great tool if you don't want to accomplish anything. Today I set up posts for my blog, did some promoting on some of my books, celebrated my first hardcover book and a variety of other tasks in order to avoid writing. I had a lot of excuses - my female character is … Continue reading Manuscript Progress
