Holy smokes

Tonight, I decided to start Newy, to just see how I like it. 2,500 words later, I am burning to keep on writing, but it’s 1 am, and I seriously have to sleep. Man. I am totally wired right now. I don’t want to stop. This is exciting.

Super Big Gulp

No, I am not ordering a large Dr Pepper from 7-11. (I wish) That is the sound I am making, due to the fact that, today, I started to write my synopsis for Tristan.I figured I needed a little break from editing, and my hope was that writing the synopsis would help me feel better…

Great Expectations

One Sunday, Father’s Day, I was assigned to speak at my church. It’s not the first time, but it was certainly the most scary. I felt this enormous amount of pressure to be brilliant. Three reasons why: 1, It’s Father’s Day and you have to have an epic meeting on Father’s Day, right? 2, I…

Writer’s Intuition

I figure that if Kiersten can keep up with her blog when she is in Mexico, I should probably throw up a post. I thought I’d give a brief update about my dilemma of Jody vs. Judy. I pondered recently on the nature of the elusive writer’s intuition. Lots of authors talk about it. Apparently,…
