Something Unexpected

I sat down to write today’s post and at first couldn’t think about what to say. My story is running in the back of my mind and the characters are pushing to get out. I thought about telling you about the story, but I need to get it written first. As I was searching for […]

Learning to Listen

I sit down to write, and I hesitate. I know what my outline says is to happen next, but something pulls me back. This has happened before. I figured out later that I was going in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, I don’t always listen to myself, and later end up deleting all that I wrote. […]

The Path Taken

I’m working on a short story. I have to say I am super excited about this. I’m also a little nervous. I’ve had problems writing short stories in the past. My goal is to keep it under 100 pages, but we’ll see if I can do so . . . In any case, this story […]

All Part of the Process

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a bit. I’ve been editing my book. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but editing is a pain and a process. It is not fast. I’m up to page 200, which is great. What’s not so great is I have to do major revisions from this point forward. I […]

Not Another Step

When I started writing books, sometimes the words would just flow… It’s like my fingers magically know what to write, and they hit the keys with purpose. I can’t type fast enough. The story builds before my eyes, and I am in awe. Other times I sit and stare at my computer screen. I mess […]

Perfection is the Enemy of Good

We have all heard the saying, “Perfection is the Enemy of Good.” As I work on my edits, that phrase comes to mind. I find myself re-writing the chapter I’m working on. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, when you write you aren’t editing, you are simply letting creativity flow. When you edit, you are […]
