Going back, to move forward

So this novel I’m working on is being as stubborn as a donkey neck-deep in peanut butter. I distinctly remember with my other two, being so full of ideas and words at times, that I’d choose writing over a nap. With this one? The naps win. Every time. Part of the problem is that it’sContinue reading “Going back, to move forward”

Being a Prolific Writer

  The word ‘prolific‘ is one I’d love to be labelled with… Oh look, she’s turned out another bestseller book! What a prolific writer she is… I’ve aimed at ridiculous wordcounts per day, I’ve pantsed and plotted and settled into a happy combination of both.

Landsick…

    Have you ever been on a boat long enough to get your sea-legs, only to feel thoroughly sick when you get back on land? This is probably the best way I can describe how I’m feeling at the moment – though it has nothing to do with boats, land or throwing up. Shhh! Let me explain.Continue reading “Landsick…”

Inspired by… THAT?

  So the grody thing in todays exotic photo is a dishevelled black satin sash that I took with me to Conference on a whim.
