That…Was…Jeopardy!

First off, I want to thank everyone so much for the enthusiasm and support.  Honestly, I was a little freaked out by the whole national television thing, but everyone getting so excited to watch made the experience even more amazing.  I wasn’t sure I was going to watch it live last night (nerves!), but I […]

This… Is… Jeopardy!

I can’t spill any of the details yet, but I wanted to swing by with a drive-by post to say that I’m going to be on Jeopardy tonight!  Aaaahhhh!!! I’ll be back tomorrow to spill any details you want, but if you want to watch tonight and play along with insider info, see if you […]

Oh, my goodness, Finalists!!

Prep NOW for NaNo (and the 2019 Golden Heart)!!!!

It’s October, and that means it’s time for NaNoWriMo!!! Silly Elisa, some of you may be saying right now. National Novel Writing Month is in NOVEMBER, honey. You’re jumping the gun. But nooooooo, my friends. I’ve learned through trial and error (lots and lots of error) that waiting until November 1 to get started is […]

The Definition of Done

A few weeks ago, I wrote about rewarding yourself to help train your brain to get into a productive, creative mode and the value of not moving the goalposts on yourself – but that can be easier said than done when you’re doing something as subjective as writing.   How many of you (like me) have finished […]
