Weapons of Mass Writing Destruction

Posted on

“That.”   It’s such an innocuous sort of word.  You don’t think it’s a big deal, that it’s doing that much damage.  You sprinkle it in, probably like you talk, all through your manuscript.  Like salt.   And like salt, it can quickly get overwhelming.  Become the kneejerk seasoning for the whole thing, until all […]

Coffeeshop Revision Cave

I feel like I’ve forgotten to post more and more often over the summer.  Some of it is because I haven’t had a lot to talk about.  But more it’s that I’ve been so flipping busy.  I’m hoping that is going to slow down here soon.  See, since January I’ve been busting my hump to […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Posted on

It’s been a busy busy week already. Yesterday Daisy had her neurology follow up, so I spent the first several hours of my day up there with her.  She got a good report and possibly I lost all sensation in my fanny from sitting on the hard floor with her for 3 hours.  I could’ve […]

Friday Surprise

Posted on

I had a GLORIOUS SURPRISE this morning.  See, I woke up thinking it was Tuesday.  And it is, in fact, FRIDAY!  :cue dancing: It’s been a week of putting out fires at the Evil Day Job, dealing with the inevitable bumps and hiccups that go along with some of the changes we’re making on a […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In and Some Link Love

Posted on

It’s Wednesday.  And it’s already been the kind of week where that fact elicits a “THANK GOD.”  Not bad, just…yeah already ready for the weekend. I’m sitting here listening to the Pacific Rim soundtrack, feeling the great urge to spar.  It gets the blood PUMPING!  I want a punching bag in my office!  :Imagines epic bo […]

I am FINISHED with Act 3!   WOO! Aaaaaand I need to rewrite about half of Act 4.  :headdesk: But it’s okay!  Because this is going to be much stronger than what I had in the first draft.  I plowed through a scene and a half of the new material yesterday.  Looking over things, I […]

Late Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Posted on

I’m pretty sure I spent all of yesterday thinking that it was Tuesday.  I’m sure this is because I was not IN the office on Monday.  I’m hitting the road in about an hour and a half for this work conference and I MUST GET WORDS before I do, so this will be a quick […]

TGIF!

Posted on

It’s FRIDAY! (Aside, I saw Despicable Me 2 over the weekend and it was every bit as fun as the first.  Please note: I would like a minion birthday party.  Just sayin’.  Ahem.) I’m nearly caught up re-recording all the lectures that didn’t have audio.  I’ve got one to go that I’ll stay after work to record […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

So our AC went out last night.  Actually, it’s probably just frozen up again, which usually indicates low freon.  Which I know because THEY JUST REFILLED IT TWO MONTHS AGO.  So clearly there’s a problem and my decision to renew the home warranty was probably a good one.  The tech will come later this morning.
