Query, query they aren’t all contrary.

You’ll never guess where I am right now. Well, if you follow me on social media you may be able to guess since I posted a picture of it. haha It is February 6 and I am currently poolside watching my fellas enjoy their first pool day of the year! Can I just tell you how […]

Pitching a fit or a synopsis, same difference?

I can hardly believe it is Friday already! It feels like I was just writing last week’s post and here I find myself once again typing away on the ole laptop. I thought I had plenty of time to write this and then I woke up this morning and realized that today was Friday! Eeek! […]

I’ve never been good at thumb twiddling.

Hello my darling readers! Oh how I have missed you! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy our little chats every Friday. I have been receiving a lot of positive feedback about this blog and I am over the moon that you have chosen to follow my journey to write and publish my first […]

Teaching my manuscript the butterfly stroke.

I have a confession to make, I feel a bit bipolar at times when I think about my writing. Sometimes, when I write something or come up with an idea I think is really great, I’m on cloud nine. Other times, I’ll read through it and question my very ability to write even the most […]

A little TNT for your writer’s block

This post is a little late and I apologize for my tardiness. I have been in a bit of a writing slump as of late. All of my writers out there, I’m sure you feel my pain and frustration. It took me a lot longer than it should have to realize this would be a […]

The plan, the myth, the legend

I can hardly believe another week has passed us by!  The time sure flies when you’re having fun, or so I’m told.  It also flies when you are a super busy parent.  There is always homework to check and laundry to do.  Clubs to sign up for, projects to finish, spelling words to learn, birthday […]

How to keep the flame of inspiration stoked

Sometimes when you are writing, inspiration hits and it hits hard. That’s what happened to me for the next part of my first full length novel. You see, I got this great idea for a scene for my book that involved fire. I was so excited that I banged out an entire chapter faster than […]
