Write On… this week in writing

Write On… this week in writing

Good Monday morning, everyone! Checking bright and… well… checking in. I want to thank everyone who stopped by the blog yesterday to read and comment on my Sunday Six post. I’m finding that I love all of my stories for different reasons and sharing them is fun. However, yesterday marked my last day of participation in the Sunday Six. I really have to evaluate what I want to get out of each community that I join. I am looking for a camaraderie among writers, an opportunity to share my work and hear people’s thoughts about it and also bring new readers to my stories and to my blog. Part of that is […]




Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop: Writer’s Flashback (in which I facepalm)

Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop: Writer’s Flashback (in which I facepalm)

This month the Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop topic is Writer’s Flashback. To take a look at something written maybe several months to years ago and share how our writing has evolved since then. Oh. Gawd. I have been writing since I was a teenager, but I don’t have any of that material. I took a long, LONG hiatus from writing and only picked it back up a few years ago in the form of Fanfiction. *cough* NSYNC fanfiction*cough* The first story that I wrote was really, really bad. It was never posted anywhere and I abandoned it pretty early on. It was reincarnated as my longest. story. evar and I […]





All moved! Here’s hoping my concentration returns…

A little personal post here… because #YOUCARE. I recently (as in days ago) moved. I haven’t been able to really concentrate on writing or any projects because I’ve been so preoccupied with THE MOVE. First I didn’t really have the money to move and get something nice. I worried I was going to have to move to a… uh… less uppity part of town to match what I could afford. And then I worried that I wouldn’t be able to find something in time, since my lease expired June 30. And then I found something and there were SNAFUS GALORE and I ended up spending about 8 hours driving around […]



Six Sentence Sunday- 6/12: Debra & David

Six Sentence Sunday- 6/12: Debra & David

Today’s post is from the new project! Yay. I was editing and rewriting some scenes I wrote in April and decided I’d make this section my Sunday Six. ETA– A little background: Debra is an Adminstrator at a Junior High school, married for 12 years to her high school sweetheart. David is a young, virile, man. He teaches P.E. at the school and is the opposite of Willard. His youth and the excitement of being with him makes him impossible to resist. Against her better judgement, she had an affair. The night before this scene, she’s just told her husband about David, so things are tense. Enjoy! Debra sputtered, her […]




New feature…Formspring me!

New feature…Formspring me!

So, I tried this awhile back on my now defunct personal blog and no one ever asked me anything. I deemed it stupid and pointless and deleted it and never reconsidered doing it again. Skip ahead a year or so, I haven’t been writing or reading, I have reached the end of the internet and I’m bored… as well, maybe SOMEONE out there has a question… or something? Anyway, I decided to set up the ole formspring again. If anyone has any questions, comments, ideas, observations to share, please be sure to pop them in that box and send them right on up! I guess…. I will consider a request […]



So it’s June. And I am back. Sorta.

I took some time off of writing during May, which I needed. Desperately. During that time, I didn’t write or read or obsessively check my writing twitter account. I marked as read most of my google reader “Writers and Writing” blog posts. I don’t think I’ve opened Goodreads all month. And while I ran a challenge at the fiction archive, I didn’t even get an inkling of a new story to write. I read snippets of a few but honestly not a lot keeps my attention as of late.
