Something wicked this way comes.

Something wicked-awesome that is! Stay tuned for an exciting announcement a bit farther on down my post. (Cue suspenseful music.) But you’ll have to wait a few paragraphs. (Maniacal laugh.)   Well the boys are back in town which means I have a few short weeks left to pack in as much summer fun as […]

Short Story Contest Winner

I can hardly believe it’s the first day of July! That means my birthday is less than two weeks away but that’s not why you all are here. You are here to find out who won The Writing Piazza’s first ever short story contest! I have to say, it was a tough decision (and a close one). […]

Hot Mess Express

Sorry for the late posting today. I usually post earlier in the day but this has been a pretty hectic week so far. I’ve been getting my fellas’ ready for a trip to see their dad for two weeks. So I’ve been running around trying to get everything together for them all while trying to […]

Running in circles or the right circles

Hello my lovelies! I’m writing to you poolside. It’s my “office” for most of the summer while my fellas are on summer break. It’s also hard to feel bad about all the shiny new rejections letters I’ve received when I’m looking out at the sparkling pool on this gorgeous day. I’m not sure if I […]

Blow by blow of the status quo.

Happy Wednesday all my Writing Piazza Peeps. I hope your week is going fabulous! Because I’m sure you’re all wondering, I did send out those queries I mentioned last week so no need to hound me about them. Cause I’m sure you were all just itching to do that. 🙂 This week has been pretty status quo […]

Getting my to-do list to-done.

So much going on I feel like I don’t have enough hours in the day to get it all done. (Notice I don’t even have time for a proper hello to all you lovelies!) And with the fellas out of school, I’ve had even more to do each day with entertaining two energetic young lads […]

We will be doing contests periodically searching for the best new short stories submitted to The Writing Piazza for publication on this site. Anyone can submit one story per contest for consideration. You do not […]

Exciting news about The Maladroit!

Ok folks, this week’s update on my writing journey is going to be short and sweet because, well, to be honest, I stabbed myself in the thumb with my craft soldering iron. Even though I don’t really use my left thumb to type, it hurts like the dickens and it’s really hard to hold it […]

How sausage is made, aka my writing process.

Happy Wednesday lovely readers. It has now come to the point where not having bad things happen equals having a good week. So I am in a really good mood, hurray for good weeks! It’s the lull between sending out the second batch of query letters and receiving responses. I’ve also got the first few […]

Rebel Writer with a Heart of Gold

Is it really Wednesday already?! It doesn’t feel like it’s been a week since we last chatted here on The Writing Piazza, or should I say that I chatted and prayed that you all would read it. 🙂 Alas, here we are again at another weekly posting following my journey of writing and publishing a […]
