The Ingredients of a Christmas Romance

Romances have often been accused of being formulaic, and Christmas romances?  Oh baby, those might be the most formulaic of all – but I still devour them every holiday season, both in book form and on the Hallmark Countdown to Christmas.  And I am certainly not the only one.  Those suckers are successful because they […]

POV for Beginners, Part 2

Yesterday we began our discussion of POV with a look into Third Person (Limited & Omniscient) and Second Person.  Today I’d like to delve into the one that has been giving me fits as I attempt to master it – First Person.  I recommend you catch yesterday’s blog, but as a quick refresher, point of […]

Point-Of-View for Beginners, Part 1

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about point of view (or POV as you will often see it abbreviated).  I was recently asked to write a book in a point of view that is not my usual (first person rather than third) and it has been a challenge, but also made me hyper conscious of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Mysterious Creative Brain

This year at RWA, I attended several workshops about the brain which blew my mind (ha. get it?), including the PAN Retreat with Roseanne Bane who spoke extensively about how stress can literally change your brain chemistry and inhibit creative thinking.  (You can check out her additional resources for her keynote here:  RWA2018) She had […]

After the Big Triumph (or Defeat)

Last week I had the opportunity to check something off my bucket list.  I got to go on Jeopardy! (Aaaaahhh!!!!) Now, if you want to find out how I did, you’re going to have to wait until October 15th like everyone else – at which point I will spill ALL – but today I want […]
