Adventures in Writing: Being a Good Influence

This post is a little… okay, a lot emotional. This is post two in my “Being a Good Author Friend” series. Stay Tuned, there’s always more. I recommend tissues if you watch This is Water. I highly recommend watching This is Water. Everyone is influenced by someone or something happening around them. While I attribute …

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 …

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. …

TMI Tuesday: Getting to Know Me

Welcome to another TMI Tuesday where I answer questions that are (sometimes) WTMI for people to handle… Enjoy! 1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest? Christian Kane. Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with this poor man. I feel so bad for …

A Penny for your Thoughts: I’m an Idiot

When you haven’t done something in quite some time, it’s stupid to throw yourself overboard. And that’s where i make a boating pun when this has nothing to do with boating of any kind. Dr. J and I are trying to keep each other in check. We’re trying to make sure we keep our goals …

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 …

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 …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Off the Rails

I feel like I owe an explanation for my lack of posting, twittering, and so forth. I haven’t been pressured for it or anything, but it’s weighing on me and I wanted to let everyone know that things are about to be back to normal (whatever normal is… I tend to be a bit weird.) …

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 …
