Yes, There’s More

I’ll be honest I thought by now I’d have caught up. Should have done the math. I think this will take me through to the new year which is good because time is short right now. It will be a good way to start the year by writing some new one. Until then, I repurpose.Continue reading “Yes, There’s More”

The Writing Series: Like a Band-Aid

Well I’ve read and re-read this story. My professional editing reality didn’t work out as well as I hoped and I’m not going to spend any more money on this WIP. It’s time. But for the life of me I’m so insecure about sending it out into the world. I keep pushing it off. IContinue reading “The Writing Series: Like a Band-Aid”

V.S.S.

6/15/20 Today the walls on either side of my office #carrel consist of dense blooming trees hiding patches of wildflowers and slippery moss. An open view lays in front of me to the azure heavens. Shall I tell you a secret? I may never go back. #vss365 6/14/20 I gave you my life My love,Continue reading “V.S.S.”

The Writing Series: On a Serious Sex Note

My first romance novels were Kathleen Woodiwiss. I found them in my mom’s bedroom and stealth read them when she wasn’t around. I still love them but there’s a hard truth to her writing that quite a few of her romances started with a rape scene. They’re also pretty damn racist but hey if you’reContinue reading “The Writing Series: On a Serious Sex Note”

The Writing Series: Plotting Part Deux

So I’m trying to plot something. I’ve never done this before and it’s not going well. I started with a flowchart and that didn’t work. Then switched to paper. It’s better but confusing. I’m watching Judy Blume’s Master Class right now. She uses notebooks. I feel like I need something more visual than a bunchContinue reading “The Writing Series: Plotting Part Deux”

Writing Series: Chapter 1

There are those writers who map out to the paragraph how the book will play out. They plot and outline and carve chapters. I’m not one of them. As I’ve said, most of my books have been fly by the seat of my pants. That cavalier attitude has worked out sometimes and not so muchContinue reading “Writing Series: Chapter 1”

Still VSSing

The Vss’ continue… 6/6/20 The summer breeze blew in by night dimming the shine of day’s fake light Loaded words like humming birds, scattered #buckshot at innocent herds A quickening, burning, no more relenting, a new  beginning #sijo #vss365 6/6/20 Pastel #hydrangea, cedar shingled homes, proper in their order, not a hair out of place,Continue reading “Still VSSing”

The Writing Series: NSFW

Ok, now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Sex. Rather, sex scenes. You’re warned if you’re feint of heart. Stop now. Click out. Hmm, let me start by saying most of mine hover in the PG-13 area. I have a few R/NC-17. I don’t think I have any X rated ones. Truth is onceContinue reading “The Writing Series: NSFW”

Alone

Now if you listen closelyI’ll tell you what I knowStorm clouds are gatheringThe wind is gonna blowThe race of man is sufferingAnd I can hear the moan, ‘Cause nobody,But nobodyCan make it out here alone. Nostalgia always makes me seek out what triggered the emotion. I hadn’t read much of her before I saw PoeticContinue reading “Alone”
