Inspiration struck and life sucked

Inspiration struck and life sucked

As I sit here, sipping my second mug of Death Wish and wishing it would kick in, I find myself shaking my head. The liberals are still losing their shit over something the President may or may not have said. The MSM is treating it as a done deal, many calling Donald Trump the most racist president we’ve ever had. All the while, they ignore Dick Durbin’s rather dubious track record for […]

Snippet

light-magic-cove

Yesterday, I talked about the trouble I was having with the current work-in-progress. I finally figured it out and have written about it over at Mad Genius Club. What I realized is I’ve been trying to force what should be the book after this into this book. So I’m going through and taking what I can from the original draft that I initially put aside and the current draft and writing the […]

Putting Butt in Chair

slaybellsring

Just a quick post this morning. The knee injury has, as I’ve said before, impacted my writing. I’ve tried finding ways to work around it but I’ll be honest. I haven’t tried as hard as I should have. Or as I could have. That ends today. I’m going back to turning off social media for the “work day”. The only exceptions will be lunch and “coffee breaks”. I’m settled into one of […]

Writing Resumes, Pelosi Takes a Hit and Another One Bits the Dust

The title of the post says it all. Fiction writing has resumed — yay! Nancy Pelosi had a really bad day yesterday (another yay!). Topping it all off, longtime Today Show anchor Matt Lauer has been fired. All this and it’s not even 0900 here. Matt Lauer, face of the Today Show, hated by fans of Ann Curry and others who have come and gone, found himself out of a job this […]

On writing and Biden and more

It’s Wednesday, mid-way through the work week. Unless you’re a writer. If you are, you know the work week never ends. You never know when an idea will strike or when you’ll see an image that inspires you. Since it’s Wednesday, it also means I’m blogging at Victory Girls. Today’s post has to do with former VP Joe Biden, the gift that keeps on giving. Let’s start with good ole “Uncle Joe”. […]

I really should know better

I did it. I knew when I wrote Friday’s post, I was tempting my luck. I should know better than to throw down the metaphorical challenge gauntlet where my muse is concerned. But I did it and now Myrtle the Evil Muse is going to make me pay for it. Long story short, when I started considering releasing the expanded edition of Vengeance from Ashes and the other books in the Honor […]

Wow! What just happened?

This week has been odd, to say the least. Real life impacted writer life and writer life impacted social life. Quit laughing. I do have a social life — sort of. Add in a migraine, deadlines that have been blown in the real life sector and, well, you get an idea of what the week has been like. So imagine my surprise when I sat down this morning and realized how much […]

Reading and Writing: Can they co-exist?

Yesterday, I blogged about some of the books I’m either currently reading or have recently finished. As I wrote the post, I recalled some conversations I’ve had with other writers, not to mention online comments I’ve read, about their own reading habits. Then, this morning, I came across another post where a writer lamented the fact they can’t read fiction while writing. And a post was born. Before I go any further, […]

A Snippet and a Share

Just a quick post this morning. On the writing front, I finally have the opening of Light Magic figured out and the book is progressing nicely (fingers crossed). I should see the updated cover for the expanded edition of Vengeance from Ashes later today. I’ll share as soon as it’s in. This is also my day blogging at Victory Girls. Today’s post is about the latest Rasmussen poll, what it shows about […]

Remembering 9/11

(This post first appeared on Mad Genius Club on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. What I said then still applies to today. As we reflect on what happened that day, on its causes and its effects and on what still needs to be done, we should also reflect and take a moment to thank those men and women who dedicate their lives to keeping our country safe, to their family and loved ones […]
