Revisions Are Like Finals

Posted on

When I was in college, I was a good student.  I studied often and I studied hard.  And I had the good grades to show for it.  I wasn’t known for procrastinating (I never really was and the one occasion I did–the Invention Convention in the 8th grade when I waited until the night before–it […]

#ROW80 Round 2 Wrap Up

Posted on

Well we still have tomorrow before end of round, but it’s not going to make a huge difference in whether or not I meet my goals, so I figure I’d go ahead and write my wrap up post today on my regular midweek check-in day. So, these were my Round 2 goals: Write 20 out […]

Revisify and Plans for Red

Posted on

I totally stole that term from pal Jessica Corra, who just had her first book deal announced the other day in PM.  Congrats Jess! I technically started revisions on Red yesterday, but it was really the small stuff.  The scenes where there needed to be a line tweaked here and there, typos or punctuation errors […]

Sunday Summary

Posted on

It has been an emotional roller coaster of a week. I finished a draft of Devil’s Eye last Sunday.  Did minor revisions and sent it to the Pink Hammer of Doom (aka Pot) on Tuesday.  Had it returned on Thursday morning when I fully lost faith and had a Writer’s Spaz.  Replotted things with Pot […]

And on to the more important announcement: I did it. I got rid of […]

Getting Back In The Groove

Posted on

I had this really great post all about the origins of paranormal species in fiction and how to set yourself apart from the crowd.  Then my browser froze and ate it.  As I don’t have the time to pull my thoughts on that together again right this moment, I’ll save it for another day.  In […]

Daily Progress Report

Posted on

Til Death: 850 (ish) I started over on that scene I’ve been struggling with for the last week. I haven’t been in Wyatt’s head AT ALL.  Pot was kind enough to give me a jump start that helped tremendously.  I’ve got a ways to go before I finish the scene, but it’s going much smoother, […]

Daily Progress Report

Posted on

Til Death: 602 I reworked the first scene with Marin so that I don’t have so much thinkration, AND I found a way to integrate  one of my characters who’s got a small but vital role to play in this story.  So bully for me.  I started working on the first scene with Wyatt as […]
