Happy Holidays from The Story Masters!

In early November, I gave myself an early holiday gift: a four-day writing workshop with The Story Masters! I mean, COME ON. Look at this instructor lineup! And within a 50 mile drive of where I live?! I was SO there. Though I highly recommend everyone experience this awesome workshop for themselves – the next […]

What Are You Thankful For?

Thanksgiving is the time of year where the concept of thankfulness is visibly front and center. By personality and profession, I’m a problem-solver, instinctively attuned to recognizing, and then correcting, problems, exceptions, deviations and anomalies. Sometimes I need a reminder to break out of problem-solving mode, and consciously acknowledge the things I’m thankful for. Thanksgiving […]

Ruby Reprise: Deep Third, Demonstrated

I have a confession to make. I keep a red pen on my bedside table. Oh, I don’t actually USE it. It’s strictly a prop. When I find the occasional typo, grammar error,  misspelling or the like while I’m reading in bed, I glance at the pen. I imagine picking it up, circling the error, […]

Free-for-All Friday: What are you researching?

Thriller writer Chelsea Cain recently tweeted:   I see I’m not the only writer who has these concerns, especially given recent revelations about government data collection. Um…NSA? FBI? DoJ? LMNOP?

In those four years, there have been many additional […]

A Heretic Tweets: Tweeting for Fun, Not Profit!

I’ve always likened Twitter to a global, virtual cocktail party. Depending on who you follow, you can participate in, or overhear, some of the most interesting conversations. But…don’t you sometimes, even while recognizing its importance, get bored to tears with the sheer volume of author promo appearing in your Twitter stream?  With seeing upteen retweets […]

Adventures in Anthology Writing

Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes. I don’t know if it’s because we’re landlocked or what, but I don’t know a single Minnesotan, whether a native or a transplant, who doesn’t feel a strong affinity for the water.  So when someone floated an idea for the members of my RWA land chapter, […]

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes….

In my day job, I’m a technology process analyst, and one concept I accept as inviolate is that processes evolve and change over time, and become more efficient, as we learn from past performance. As I sit down to plan my fourth manuscript, I want to share some of the ways my writing process has […]
