Tapping A Well

I’m on a bit of hiatus from vss365. Not because the words are hard. When you’re in the groove you can come up with something, even for a hard word, even if just making fun of your own limitations. I’m more tapped out creatively. I needed to regroup focus my attentions on this WIP andContinue reading “Tapping A Well”


I’m trying to get in front of the blog ball. I’m usually a week or two (in a good moment) ahead on my posts. If something timely pops up I’ll rearranged the schedule dates. That said sometimes the ideas come like waves, one after another. Things happen to me and I’m like ‘write about thatContinue reading “Ideas”

More of the Same

The 1st one was a nod to my oldest who has loved beavers since a very young child. I had no idea either until one day they started talking about beaver habitats and what they were called and how they were built. I was floored. You’d think a mom would know these things. The othersContinue reading “More of the Same”

Cheating the System

Tropes. I see the question asked in the community. Sometimes it’s asked with a veneer of not even veiled derision like a tiger waiting to pounce on the idiot who answers with a ‘sure why not’. Other times it’s asked genuinely like ‘should we shouldn’t we?’. Other times it’s asked with a ‘f’ it –Continue reading “Cheating the System”

And So It Goes

If you can’t tell this was when the crazy began it’s long crazy march through our lives. It’s quaint the things I worried about then. Toilet paper and cancelled vanity appointments. I feel like those days were like the movie Independence Day. Now we’re in Mad Max stage. I don’t even want to think aboutContinue reading “And So It Goes”

Marketing Blitz

As I proofread and put the final nails in this WIP, I’m trying to figure out how to market. I do plan to spend a little money. Buy some advertising. I may start dropping some quotes other eye catchers to get people interested. I’ve never sent out my books for professional reviews from genre sites/publicationsContinue reading “Marketing Blitz”

V to the SS

So the stork one – I didn’t want to go the obvious baby route and I knew nothing about storks other than that. I don’t usually have time to research the word. I just go with what my gut is telling me or the definition. I did this time and found out storks mate forContinue reading “V to the SS”

On Proofreading

I have some posts planned for late September/October to talk about this current WIP and decisions I made and etc. Right now though I’ve finished my rewrite and I’m trying to proof/edit and I’m burnt out. I don’t want to read this story anymore and I’m trying to figure out how to get the energyContinue reading “On Proofreading”

How You Vss’ing?

And more. Interesting, these weren’t very good. I’ve liked most of them up till now. Wonder what next week’s batch will look like. 3/11/20 He groaned as the bloody mary clunked down no displays of ribs or thick cut bacon like at a hip Sunday brunch but his stomach still growled Drink.  I’ll make eggsContinue reading “How You Vss’ing?”
