Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! Writerly things that I got done this week: I gave my writer’s bog a substantial facelift and overhaul this weekend.

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read!

WIP-it Wednesday: November 15th, 2017

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! This week has been alternately exhilarating and frustrating.

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read!

WIP-it Wednesday: October 11th, 2017

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! This weekend was half catch-up and half writing.

WIP-it Wednesday: October 4th, 2017

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! As a writer, I deal with spaces every day. They are the gaps I place between my words so that each one stands out on its own with legibility and respect. One could even say that it’s in between the... Continue Reading →

WIP-it Wednesday: August 30th, 2017

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read!

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! It’s been an eventful week.

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read!

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! Cretaceous Queen –my epic tale of magical girls, superheroes, dinosaurs and giant alien robots–  is just shy of six thousand words as of today.

WIP-it Wednesday: July 5th, 2017

Time for a new weekly writer’s roundup of my works-in-progress and those ready to read! I entered my weekend with designs to get back to work on Vivian’s Last Cigarette, but several factors prevented me from achieving that goal. The first of these was plain old exhaustion. This last month had run me down emotionally... Continue Reading →
