ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37 (Part II)

So as promised, here is the second half of my Writers of the Future Vol. 37 review. If you missed the first post, you can read it here. Or just go out of order and read this post and then that one. Sometimes it’s a backwards day. Right. I don’t have anything else important toContinue reading “ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37 (Part II)”

ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37

So after a long break and a lot of sleep (which I really, really needed), it is my immense pleasure to be on the advanced reading team for Writers of the Future Vol. 37, and to review one of the best new science-fiction and fantasy anthologies in the world. Not to brag or anything. I’mContinue reading “ARC Review: Writers of the Future Vol. 37”

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?”

Submitting a Short Story!/Random 1:00 a.m. Ramble

So here I was again, on the Writers of the Future page, all set to submit my short story for this quarter…
…with two minutes before the quarter ends, checking all the boxes and hoping AutoFill didn’t misspell my name and my formatting is correct because no time to check it now–

Life, the Universe, and Everything Symposium 2021 (Part II)

What could possibly be better than sitting snuggled up in a warm sweater with a pile of pillows attending LTUE panels with my fellow nerds as fluffy snow covers everything outside? Okay, maybe it didn’t have to be about -2° (about -18° for Ye Celsius Users) outside making my hands so dry that my knucklesContinue reading “Life, the Universe, and Everything Symposium 2021 (Part II)”

Life, the Universe and Everything 2021 (Writing Con!!!)

Okay, so Sunday I found out about this online con, and I’m freaking out a little bit because I know it’s going to be awesome. I need to back up a little bit. Life, the Universe and Everything Symposium is a convention for writers, artists, gamers, and filmmakers–storytellers of any type. And this year, dueContinue reading “Life, the Universe and Everything 2021 (Writing Con!!!)”

Writing Books (that have already been written…)

It happened again. I know I’m not alone. You come up with a thrilling idea, write a short story or even a novel, giddily tell all your friends, enter it to contests, give it to early readers… …and someone has already written it. And it’s fabulous! And it’s popular! And everyone loves it! And it’sContinue reading “Writing Books (that have already been written…)”

Writing Update/Library Card

So I hadn’t realized my library card had expired. For someone who considers it a more important ID than a driver’s license, this is significant. As I was renewing it, I discovered that my library has a “responsible party” signature on cards issued to young readers. And since I’ve been a patron hither and thitherContinue reading “Writing Update/Library Card”

Writing Update: December 18, 2020

How are things in my post-NaNoWriMo little world, you ask? Odd. Distinctly odd. Currently in the midst of arguing with one of my characters to the point we’re not speaking much. And even though it’s awkward, this is an improvement. I am not crying every afternoon I try to write over the possibility of hisContinue reading “Writing Update: December 18, 2020”

Not a Rejection!!/Writing Award

Confetti and cake time! Writers of the Future has awarded me a Silver Honorable Mention! You might remember “Rejection Slip,” a post about my last Writers of the Future entry. A flat-out refusal of a story that I loved. Things are looking up. The Silver Honorable Mention isn’t an official award. I won’t be publishedContinue reading “Not a Rejection!!/Writing Award”
