Daily Divulge: On To New Things

So I didn’t get any helpful advice from the writing group. Just frustration. I’m ending the first part on a cliffhanger. I have to. If I keep writing on this project, I will move from shaky ground into dangerous obsession/compulsion. … Continue reading

Daily Divulge: Done Already

So I wound up taking a late nap yesterday, and I’m still awake, so…my writing is done, and it’s not even 2am. It’s been done for about twenty minutes, actually. I had to post in a writing group looking for … Continue reading

Daily Divulge: And It’s Ramping Up

I’m trying to be good today. I did my writing to music instead of binge-watching Netflix. Even made it out for a grocery run (and nearly sweated to death. Stupid Alberta.) Today is going to be a good day, I’ve … Continue reading

Daily Divulge: Three Day Weekend!

Not from writing, of course. That would defeat the purpose of writing every day. Nah, just from the book store. Three days of not sweating to death while throwing around boxes and books and unwrapping 8000 pens (the new season … Continue reading

Daily Divulge: Hiding from the Heat

It’s still stupid-hot. Not quite as bad as yesterday, thanks to a 3am thunder storm. But still hot enough that I’m not leaving the basement unless I have to. Writing today was a little…torturous. I’m mired in a section of … Continue reading

Daily Divulge: Ugh, Antsy

So this is a new feature I’m trying for the blog. Just a little, almost stream-of-consciousness update, to keep me coming back to this blog. I can’t promise any of these will be clever, but I will do my best … Continue reading

NaNo Day One: First Steps

NaNo officially started almost four hours ago. I was at work, and then winding down/procrastinating, so I’m just starting.  I’m 56 words in and it hits me: I’m writing in first person. I’d never figured I’d be writing this in … Continue reading

NaNo Countdown: 58 Days

The days are already going by too quickly. But I made a little progress, I think. I’m about ready to start scribbling the scenes onto recipe cards. Maybe tomorrow. Today started with Ever After, but I didn’t write anything until … Continue reading
