Hello. Did you miss me?

So I’m not dead. Nor have I quit blogging. A dragon still hasn’t swept down and decimated my suburban village, I didn’t disappear into the void or get lost trying to find my way out of hallways stacked full of books. Just thought you might like to know. I meant to post. Regularly. Often. I’veContinue reading “Hello. Did you miss me?”

Writing Update: May 12, 2020

My writing brain tends to click on at the most inopportune times. One o’clock in the morning on a regular basis. While moving house. During university finals. So here I am, craziest time of the year, elbow-deep in urban fantasy. Again. Can’t say I’m anything but perfectly happy about it. It’s not great for gettingContinue reading “Writing Update: May 12, 2020”

Bad Writing Habits I Have

So since it’s almost 2020 (Happy New Year, everybody!) and most normal people are forming resolutions, I thought I’d make a little list of writing habits that are frankly terrible ideas and should probably be resolved. Right. About that. The idea comes from the fabulous children’s book author Diane Zahler, who left a post “IContinue reading “Bad Writing Habits I Have”

Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo

Well, it’s December now. All of the groggy little writers who spent a month writing 50,000 words are sleeping in and waking up to see the world hasn’t fallen to shivers while they’ve been away. Everything’s much the same. Except, of course, for those of us who made the journey. Victors or not in theContinue reading “Writing Update: The End of NaNoWriMo”

Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?

So I actually already finished my goal of 50,000 words for the month. Two days ago? Not sure how that happened. Not sure how I feel about it, either. No bells and whistles and whooping went off in my head. No banshee-screams like when I’ve discovered news of favorable contest results, loud enough to frightenContinue reading “Writing Update: NaNoWriMo…?”

Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019

So in between working on NaNoWriMo (I’m still alive after 18,000 words in 6 days! Ha!), here is the promised blog post about Grand Bookish Adventure no. 2: Dragonfest Renaissance faire. Even though it’s been a couple weeks since it happened. As word of explanation, I am a strolling player at the festivals–wander around, wearContinue reading “Catching Up Part 2: Dragonfest 2019”
