It’s #NaNoWriMo! Bring on the words!

I leave stuff to the last minute. It’s a trait that I’m sure some fins annoying, but for me it works. Sooo, with that in mind, creating a novel in a month should be a cinch. I took part last year and wrote Evangeline – a novel which actually I shelved. I’ll go back to…

Expression Through Art

I write…a lot. It’s something that started out as a hobby and quickly progressed into an obsession. There’s so much going on in my head, so many bottled up emotions, thoughts and sometimes anger, that I have to get it out. I need to. If I didn’t, I’d combust. I don’t talk about my feelings,…

A Writers Inner Struggle

I’ve been rather quiet online of late, caught within my own inner turmoil of thought, a great deal of which relates to writing. You see, I write paranormal romance – I love it to my bones, yet I’ve found myself reading more and more contemporary romance – something I also love. Ideas began whirring and…

You Are a Legend

It happens to all of us. Honestly, if it hasn’t happened to you, the fine person reading this, then either you’re not a writer or you have a secret which I shall now stalk you until you tell me. You know that place you find yourself where you suddenly have too much to do? Where…

For The Love of Reading #TheQ4Q

Recently, something on Twitter caught my eye. A true story about a young woman whose life had taken an utterly terrifying and brutal turn when she was just eighteen years old.

Physical books – do we need them?

The invention of the eReader is, without a doubt, one of my favorite inventions ever. I’ve never been one to keep books. I wanted to, but as my husband was in the army and we moved around often, lugging boxes of books was never an option. I’d buy or borrow them, read, and then return…

A peek at my WIP ‘Finding Immortal’ and my battle with ‘the pit’

For the last few days I’ve been in a funk. You know that point where you can no longer form a coherent sentence? Where any words you string together are a bit crap, or even a lot crap. And even those times where you seem to be able to kill it when writing dialogue but…

A Crazy, Fun Day

Without a doubt, yesterday was one of the funnest days I’ve had in a while. As you all know, I gave away Fractured Immortal for one day only. I expected about 100 copies to be downloaded from the Kindle store – that’s what people told me to expect. Imagine my surprise when everything exploded. The…

My First Short Story

I finally wrote a short story. I’m actually really happy that I did it as I thought it an impossible task. But here it is. Stepping Out Lost. The stupid word ran through my head again, playing over and over. I flicked my gaze to the window, tipping my head to the side as I…

My 2014 in review. I owe you guys a big fat thank you.

I’ve seen a few of these posts around so thought I’d add mine to the mix. My blog has only been running since June, so I’m pleased with the numbers. Actually, I’m over the moon. I think we’ve all come to realize by now that I waffle on about random nothingness most of the time…
