IWSG: Oh, the Suspense!
Write what you know, the pundits suggest. This will add a sense of reality to your stories. Even as an older than average writer, I love a challenge, and there's so much that I don't know. I rather dislike conflict, and for most of my writing, those torrid ...

Row80 Weds Week 5: Suspense!
Oscar Wilde once said, "The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last." That's about how I feel as I set up goals and peer into the coming month. We leave Sunday morning for a trip that has no destination or end point. We may be gone up to a month (or back ...

ROW80 Weds Week 4: Conflict?
Summer is heating up and August promises more of the same, but we won't be home. We're hitting the road on August 3, just after our 41st anniversary with no destination in mind, except north. Despite global warming, I'm hoping it's cooler in that direction....

ROW80: Week 2: Wednesday & Spain
I always wonder why I should post on any Wednesday for A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80). Sometimes I do just skip, because Sunday was just yesterday, wasn't it? Updates for Midweek, Week 2 : --On track to meet goal of +1,000 new words this week (800 word...

ROW80: Monday morning . . .
"I'm late. I'm late." So the rabbit sings as he falls down that hole in the ground to a different dimension. My early morning breakfast of cottage cheese, blueberries, and walnuts with a smidge of banana prepares me to catch up, to focus, and to get to work...

World-building: More important than story?
My current work-in-progress, The Seventh Tapestry , has historical roots that reach back to France and Scotland in the 16th Century. But the main story is set in contemporary times. I thought maybe I could write this story a little faster than my usual thre...

ROW80: Weds check-in with a snippet
Summer has arrived here with 90F plus predicted for the next two weeks. I'm feeling lucky my writing routine is early in the morning. Our patio gets just a little morning sun, so my one potted plant is still flowering. Yesterday, I drove DH to his last sect...

Round 3, Week 1: All by Myself . . .
My F2F writer's group was cancelled this morning, so I'm singing that lovely tune, "All by Myself . . ." today. But I don't feel all by myself. Supported by texts, e-mails, and videos (even music), the writing goes well. So here's my progress this week on R...
