I Loathe Writing First Drafts!

I loathe writing first drafts. LOATHE IT. There. I said it. I know, I know. I’ve heard all the writerly bromides: “First drafts are  supposed to be bad.” “You can fix anything but a blank page.” But the perfectionist who lives in my head doesn’t listen. She’s singing, “Let it suck, let it suck, let it suck!” – […]

We’re Back!

Okay, RWA National was fantastic! I did more than survive. My brain is exploding with inspiration, and also, and perhaps more importantly, with concrete ideas on how to execute. While we all recover, I thought I’d put up a quick post with some of my top RWA 2018 moments. – When the woman with the […]

Surviving RWA National: Sound Sensitivities Edition

This blog post is a follow-up to one I wrote a number of years ago, in the early days of the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood. While the content of Behold My P-ness! Writers, Myers-Briggs, and an Introvert’s Guide to RWA National is self-explanatory and the advice still holds, soon after its publication the post came to […]

April Showers Bring May…

…flowers? Nuh-uh, not where I live. Here in Minnesota, there’s still snow on the ground, and anything planted before Memorial Day will likely be a victim of a serial killing frost. Nope, if you grew up where I did, just south of the Canadian border, learning how to skate as soon as you walked and […]

Coastal Magic Reconnaissance!!

Over the years, I’ve heard great things about the Coastal Magic Convention. As it says at their website, Coastal Magic is “a super casual, urban fantasy, paranormal, and romance focused convention in Daytona Beach, Florida.” Casual? Great. Super casual? Even better. Florida, during the winter? Please, tell me more! As The Most Introverted Author on […]

Falling in Love Again…

I mentioned in my last blog post that I was hitting up my keeper shelf in an effort to break out of a writing slump. The writing slump is slowly easing, but reading-wise? I’m IN THE ZONE. I’m re-reading one of my favorite series for the upteenth time, and falling in love again. The objects […]

Care and Feeding of the Perpetually Peeved

I have a confession to make. This blog post is the first new thing I’ve written in over a month. My WIP, which I mentioned in my ENTHRALL ME release day interview last month, is stalled out at about the halfway point. I can’t bear to look at how long it’s been since I last […]

My Low-Key Book Release Plan

Those who read my blog post on redefining success realize I’m not necessarily apt to follow conventional publishing wisdom because I don’t publish frequently enough for conventional wisdom to apply. That said, on October 9 I’m releasing my first book in four years. Allow me to introduce Tia and Wyland! They say that opposites attract, […]
