Keeping Focused
One of the hard things about writing, aside from all of it, is keeping focused on the current project. When the words (and ideas) are flowing, it's fairly easy to keep on task. After all, the story wants  to be told, so it seems natural to tell it. Until yo...

Dogs, Snow, and Marketing
For those of you not following my Twitter and Instagram account: I'm dog-sitting. They are an adorable geriatric corgi and a puppy mini-dachshund (though old enough that he's at his max size). This means there are a lot of little messes to clean up, but tha...

Having Survived NaNoWriMo
We survived NaNoWriMo. I mean, I hope we did. Hopefully we also hit our word count (or got to where we wanted to be). I wrote 50,075 words, and aside from a few days where I fell behind, I kept up the pace of 1,667 words a day. It taught me a few things, or...

A Surprise Day Off
After a delightful day spent with my family yesterday, my plans to join my mother on a trip to visit my grandmother were thwarted by a very grumpy stomach. (And since it woke me in the middle of the night for over an hour, that led to a very grumpy Alex as ...
