Sitting Pretty

So we all survived the winter storm, more or less. Not that 30 inches is anything to sneeze at – but we didn’t lose power, and quite frankly that was the one thing I was really worried about. The kids were off of school for over a week, but aside from that, everything was pretty good. No harm done. Not sure if we’ll be getting anything else this winter or not, but I’ve about had my fill of precipitation at the moment. It’s cool with me if we move right into Spring now. In the meantime, I’ve been editing away on this new(ish) book. Finally got that out to the agent the other night, and I’m giving myself a few days to not look at anything of my own. Beta reads for friends, absolutely, but I’d gotten to the point on my own manuscript where it seemed like everything sucked.… Read more

Word-Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

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… Read more

Edit. Rewrite. Polish. Repeat as Needed.

Not much of a post today – it’s lousy on the pain scale. Don’t know if it’s a result of traveling or what, but I’m not happy about it. (And for me to have taken painkillers 3 days in a row is NOT a good sign. I generally avoid most medications, but the pain and stiffness have been brutal. I go to the back doc tomorrow – we’ll see what happens. I suspect he’ll try another injection of sorts, but if I don’t get any relief, I’m going to suggest we do a discogram – which will hurt, but might give us some real answers as to what’s going on.) Anyway, not to ramble on about my back issues, my main thought here was actually how nice it was to go back to that short story after a week of leaving it fallow…and discovering it was better than I thought.… Read more
