NaNoWriMo Prep [2016]

Ah, yes, it's late in September. The temperatures are going down, though we had a rather late summer and we still get the occasional hot day. I'm really hoping for a balmy October, Indian Summer style. It's also time for thinking about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, for those who do not know). In November,... Continue Reading →

I’m writing [5]

Looking up which number to put into the brackets, I realized that the last installment of 'I'm writing' was in November. I'm such a slacker but I'm trying not to be on my own case so much. After all, it's my time - I don't wanna spend it nagging at myself. And I am writing... Continue Reading →

Wrote Trip / Finding Ms. Write Blog Tour

This post is part of the Finding Ms. Write blog tour, promoting this fabulous anthology by Ylva Publishing about 'book people.' Since I'm biased, I feel that you should totally buy and read this wonderful piece of work which has been put together by Jae and Jove Belle and includes stories by twelve authors of...

Congratulations, it’s a short story

People have preconceptions, fast beliefs that may not be of much importance, but are all the more difficult to change. I know because I have many, had more, am always curiously surprised when one of them falls. I like to think of myself as open-minded, but then I'm a stubborn s-o-b who clings desperately to...

Let’s take a break

For many a writer writing is not their daytime job. Many writers simply don't earn enough money with writing to make it their only job. So, writing has to take a back seat and is put into the hours before and/or after work and on the weekends. It kinda makes writing a second job, but... Continue Reading →

Serious Writer Dude in 2016

Hello, folks. Well, I'm a little preoccupied this year and I keep stalling on things. One of those things is this here blog. I'm sorry for posting so little, but life seems to get in the way a lot. But I've been thinking about things I want for my blog and I guess (I'm hoping)... Continue Reading →

Once Upon a Time…Editing

There comes a time in a writer's life when they have finished their first draft. And they're happy. The sun is shining a little brighter, food tastes better and the stress of finishing a project is gone. Congratulations, the writer has fulfilled their destiny. Or have they? Because there's the first draft, lying there in... Continue Reading →

December Blues

Am I really blue, or is this just this day's feel? I'm not sure. I feel like the new year should begin already, so that I can make New Year's Resolutions. This is not very productive, I know. But after-Xmas always feels like nowhere-land to me. I'm free-floating. But that is no place, no state... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo Update [2015.4]

NaNo is almost over, and unless I write 20k words tomorrow I have again failed it. I'm not disappointed, though. I've doubled last year's word count and I'm still feeling inspired. I finished a short story, I finished a novel, and I started a new fun project that will hopefully appear in an anthology next... Continue Reading →
