Writing Difference with Roxane Gay

Last week, I took a day off from security guards, sex demons and assassins (the WIP) and joined a group of undergraduate English majors, MFA students, and other writers on the University of Minnesota Mankato campus, where we had the pleasure of listening to the amazing Roxane Gay talk about writing difference. Though Gay is […]

2016 Ruby Winter Writing Festival Check-In Monday #3

Wow! We’re almost half way there. Or to put it another way, it’s February, ready or not. Have you been working hard to make those goals you set three weeks ago? Those goals that didn’t seem so daunting then may look like Mt. Everest now. Or if you’re lucky, those lofty goals look easy now. […]

Fangirl Friday – January 29th Edition

Fun with Revisions

The Winter Writing Festival is underway and if you’re writing a first draft, I hope the new words are piling up higher every day!  Me?  I’m working on revisions.  My New Year’s resolution for this year was that I was finally going to revise my old Golden Heart-winning manuscript and turn it into something that […]

It’s Never Too Late to Learn Something New

I’ve been writing novels for a long time now. I can say that I’ve learned how to write a novel and I’ve learned how to meet a deadline. But I get stuck. I lose my way even though I have an outline. I have to rewrite. I struggle sometimes with imagery and just plain bad […]

WWF Share a Snippet Day

We’re 10 days into the 2016 Winter Writing Festival, and participants have spun out  hundreds of thousands of new words, whether in the writing sprints or working on their own.  I love hearing folks in the Chat Room come back after  20 or 30 minutes of sprinting and say, “I wrote 673 new words!” […]

Death & Then There Was Rebirth

I’ve come to the conclusion that death mirrors birth. From the moment we’re conceived, we fight to grow into a whole person.  Then we take enter into a new world where again we strive to develop into a unique person. At some point, we struggle again, leaving behind love ones, and again take passage into another […]
