Adventures in Writing: Being a Good Author Friend

I want all authors to take a deep breath. And then let it out. Take another and let it out. One more time, breathe with me.   I feel it’s been very difficult for some authors out there to be good author friends. Or, perhaps they are only good author friends to authors who fit …

Adventures in Writing: Social Interaction

Today, let’s talk about social media and interacting with others. First off, pick your platform. If you love Facebook, then focus on that one. If you love Twitter, then make that your main squeeze.

Adventures in Writing: Winding Path

Writing isn’t easy. It’s hard. It was never meant to be easy. My writing history has been a winding path. Sometimes, I barrel off that path into the unknown, machete waving back and forth trying to forge my own way. And that’s how it should be. We should all find our own way of doing …

Why Everyone Should Write Eliza David (@ElizaDWrites) said it best on twitter when she sent out to the world: “I want every woman to pick up a pen & write. A novel, an essay, a blogpost, a poem, a sentence. Your words deserve a voice. #FridayFeeling” I’d like to add to this though. Not just …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Oh, the Feels!

I read this article by Mary McCarthy over at SpliceToday.Com and the first thing I thought of was how I do things in my life. I do things that make me happy and if something doesn’t make me happy, I think about how to do it in a way that will make it fun for …

I’m currently working on three stories right now: Mistaken Monday, Blackmailed Supervisor, and Ms. Fix-It: Fiona and Her Knotty Life. And I plan to write another Masturbation Monday submission as well. I’ve been working on Beloved Master, the Master’s POV from Beloved Pet in the back of my mind, too. There’s a never-ending stream of …

Pet Peeves, Quirks, and Baggage

First things first Sometimes when I’m reading or listening to a book, the characters will piss me off. They will do something so obviously stupid, unable to stop themselves, like a freight train without brakes, barreling towards ruining their life or relationship or their cup of coffee. But then I have to remember that real …

It’s 3:15 a.m. – Do you know where your muse is?

I do! I know! As of this morning, waking me up and telling me that when I start the spinoff from Supervisor Sexcapades that it should be in first person pov even though I prefer writing in third. Arguing with my muse tends to be futile. (Resistance is Futile!) My muse pummeled me and said …
