I Don’t Care How You Get Here – Writing advice from Oleta Adams

I follow a lot of podcasts, but there are only a few that I feel compelled to listen to the absolute second they are downloaded. Two on that list are the Self Publishing Podcast and Better Off Undead. Both are from the same three inspirational and relatively insane guys and every now and then they mention […]

Don’t sell the waitress short

Anyone who’s taken a class with me knows exactly how much I despise character sheets. They’re evil and a waste of my precious, precious time. By the time I sit down and write with a character, he or she has lived in my head for months – almost to the point of my being schizophrenic. […]

When it’s necessary to murder a scene

I have been on such a roll lately, writing like a maniac for the first time in my life. Running up to the 4 ½ day weekend that was Christmas this year, I was excited about all of the writing I was going to get done. It was not unthinkable that between that break and […]

Writing Group Faux Pas

  A few months ago I got a little annoyed during our weekly writing group. One of the authors was working on a fantasy novel that contained witchcraft.

NANOWRIMO prep and a great find

NANOWRIMO is sneaking up on us. Refusing to be caught off guard again, I am letting the wheels spin already. The writing group I started here in Boston is going strong and I adore all of the regulars – and they have become my inspiration and motivation. Since I started the group, I feel an […]

My Mother’s Party Skirt

Coming from a relatively poor, tea-totaling family, our celebrations never looked like the ones on television. That’s ok though, since we didn’t own a television, or a “one-eyed devil” as it was affectionately called. When we wanted to celebrate, we all packed into the car and went to Pancho’s Mexican Buffet. I’m not even sure […]
