Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
shindig Fox & Willow will actually be updated later on today – but this link will always take you to the latest page, so check back in a little while (probably sometimes this evening.) In the meantime I’m over at Word Whores today, talking about books and series and just how long is too long? (Heh. *Is* there such a thing?? ) Also, just a heads up that the author chat/Shindig I was supposed to host with Sandy Williams last week on our book release date was rescheduled to tonight – 7 PM, EST. RSVP here! (I might be a few minutes late – turns out the boy sproglet had a field trip today and won’t be back until 6:30 or so and I have to pick him up at his school. I’ll be as fast as I can.) And gah! I’ve been forgetting to put my links to my blog… Read more

Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | Leave a comment
foxswan Gonna be a short and sweet post today – working from home because I’m in a pain overload of some sort. Maybe it’s the weather – I hear there’s some sort of mega storm coming our way (just in time for me to try to fly to Toronto next week, huzzah!). In either case, I’m all about the ice packs today, so there we go. Otherwise, I’m over at Word Whores  talking about writing horror scenes. It’s not really all that great a post because I don’t write horror and I’m not that fond of reading it either. (Though I did post the excellent Actual Cannibal Shia LeBouf video, so there is that.) And Fox & Willow is updated today too. Blog Tour link: Ramblings From This Chick – there’s a Phineas-centric excerpt from Trace of Moonlight posted here, so go check that out if you want to get your… Read more

Self-Insertion

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | 9 Comments
bart-simpson-generator I was musing the other day on the whole PoV thing. I like writing in 1st. I *can* write in 3rd, but I just prefer 1st for some reason. This new book I’m working on is actually in 1st person present – again, I’m not sure why, and I don’t know if it will stay that way. Just seems to be the way it wants to come out and I’ve learned it’s not worth fighting the muse over. I always hear that writing in 1st person is risky since a lot of people don’t seem to care for it. Maybe it’s the limited information or the “I did x” lines that tend to get on people’s nerves. Personal preference is what it is, but one thing I sometimes wonder is if readers tend to be harsher on the protags of a 1st person story. Books are often escapist, and I… Read more

Without Tears

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , , | Leave a comment
Element_fuchsiabutterfly Today’s blog is a bit muzzy. I always get a bit discombobulated when I end up doing something for my back (a second round of IV therapy), and it tends to cut into the day. Still waiting to see if the therapy is going to help – I was told it would take 2 or 3 rounds before we really knew anything. I felt really bad in the waiting room though – there was a lovely old lady who was clearly in so much  pain, she actually started crying when the nurse asked her what her pain level was. Except she couldn’t cry – apparently she’d had some terrible fall a few years past and whatever had happened (it was pretty awful, I’m guessing – think she cracked her skull real bad) – it took away her ability to create tears. But I guess she had some sort of recent… Read more

Updates and Sundry

Participant-180x180-2 Lots of links and catching up to do today, so let me get started.  First of all, I am going to do NaNoWriMo this year! I’ve done it before, but the last few years I was right in the middle of a deadline and couldn’t spare the time, but this year it falls inside a perfect window. I’m working on a new project and I figure it would be a great way to get my ass in gear. If you’re interested in adding me a a writing buddy – I go by mynfel, so feel free to add me. (And I’d love to set up some sort of virtual write-in a few times over the month, so let me know if that’s something you’d like to be part of.) As a follow up to Friday’s bullying post – I admit I wasn’t sure if I should post it. After all,… Read more
