move us ALL. I write because I struggle to speak my truth. Want to know what I'm going through, how I see the world? Read my writing. And on the flip side, words can bring understanding. Are you afraid of "them"...bet if you took a minute you'd find common ground and way less reason to … Continue reading 9 of 40 – Let Someone Else’s Words…
She scaled the wall in her usual spot, noting that none of her trip wires or other safety features had been crossed. Slipping in the window was academic. She made quick work of taking off her weapons and then her clothes on the way to the shower. The clothes went into a trash bag from … Continue reading 7 of 40 – another quick scene.
I love this scene... Even from that far away, the presence called to him; he knew the girl was in trouble and the decision to induct her was made. It was now the only way he could save her life. He entered the apartment. The stench of blood never failed to raise the coppery taste … Continue reading 4 of 40 – An April 2017 Camp NaNo Excerpt
Camp NaNo begins and it's off to my back files to dig out my next manuscript for release prep. I tend to rebel during the Camps and will start with a piece that's partially written and vow to add 50K words to what I've already done. So it's still a 50K challenge, I'm just starting … Continue reading 2 of 40
Good friend of mine is doing a 40 day blog post deal as a way to rekindle her writing fire. I follow the Artist's Way and do three hand written pages in the mornings -most often right after I wake up, but always before 9:30 am. Feels more genuine if I stick to a deadline. … Continue reading Don’t know if I can do 40
Thought this might put a smile on my fellow writers' faces. Let the April Camp NaNo countdown begin!
It's Me, God (Akal Purakh, Allah, Elohim, Goddess, Ja, Jehova, Kaivalya, Krishna, Love, Olodumare, Om, Yahweh, Zeus, and whatever else y'all are calling Me these days. Thank you Wikipedia). I wanted to stop in to ask you a question. Nothing fancy, this won't be on a test or anything. Your answer won't send you to … Continue reading Hi Humans,
I knew there was something special about my attraction to the BuJo system. For those of you who hadn't seen my previous posts in this short series... Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6 In case you're wondering, yes, I'm currently parked at Procrastination Station. Guess who hasn't written anything … Continue reading Speaking of BuJo-ing with ADOSS
I'm a pantser so there won't be any tips or tricks in this post on how to prepare for next month's writing festival. There also won't be any rants about how harried I feel with the start time looming on the horizon and how I have no idea what I'm going to write. You see, … Continue reading Obligatory Pre-NaNo Post
I imagined I'd write horror. After all, it's what I read, what I watched (the classics mostly), what I felt most of my childhood (bullying and assorted other traumas); what I dreamt most nights. I wanted to be the monster under the bed for a change. But when I embraced my writing for real, what … Continue reading That’s It!
