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 …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Peek Behind the Curtains

Actually, only the bedroom curtains and blinds are closed, but the other curtains are all wide open. You’d have to walk halfway into my yard to see inside and yes, I’d see you coming. I’ve been wracking my brain for something to share all week long. It has been one crazy day after another. I …

Technical Blather: Calling All Google Geeks

I can’t take it anymore, I want my Google Chrome back. Please save my sanity (what little I have left). I haven’t been able to use my Google Chrome on my new laptop for way too long now and it’s driving me mad. I can use it on the old laptop, I can use it …

TMI Tuesday: Let’s Talk about Sex

Part of writing is using your fear to get the story out, or using your emotions to make something more compelling. This TMI Tuesday post is really personal and a little scary, so here we go. 1. Would you take a course in advanced sex positions? Why? If I did, it would probably just to …

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. I tend to be a Twitter focus-type. While I do post to Facebook, it’s most often an auto-post via my WordPress. …

Adventures in Writing: Mind of a Smut Writer

Have you heard the song by Korn called ADIDAS? If not, feel free to check it out at the end of this post, it’s pretty fucking good. I have to be completely honest here… I don’t think about sex all day. I do get ideas at random times from random comments I hear. Sometimes if …

TMI Tuesday: Life: dating, your body and more

Life: dating, your body and more 1. What period of your life was the happiest? Why? Well, last Saturday was pretty happy watching my daughter walk across the dais to receive her bachelor’s degree. Happiness tends to be a difficult emotion for me to tackle and hang on to. I’m generally content, though. Now don’t …

Adventures in Writing: Unraveled

Writing a story is like unraveling a skein of yarn. I crochet and I am one of those people who doesn’t make balls of yarn – I just pull from the skein. If you do this right, you’re in for a smooth ride. However, there’s always that one skein that is full of bunches of …

TMI Tuesday: This or That?

I wanted to try some more new things to get my muse all worked up, so here’s TMI Tuesday fun for you! 1 – Lights on or off? Honestly, I don’t think this matters to me. It matters what my partner would want, though. If they prefer the lights off, then I’m cool with it. …

Adventures in Writing: Finish What You Start

There’s a rule you need to follow when you’re any creative type and that’s to finish what you’ve started. Sometimes, that rule needs to be broken. The only time I break this rule is if something just isn’t working. The story doesn’t flow or something else isn’t working. I put it aside to either try …

Adventures in Writing: Social Media Abusers

Are you an abuser of Social Media? Here’s how to tell… Death to the Auto DM  I get that authors are supposed to be writing non-stop like a bullet train speeding to the next stop at… well the speed of a bullet. On top of that, they might have a day job, kids or parents …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Why You Should Be Writing

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 …
