Halloween Greetings!

In honor of the day, I thought I’d show my current mood via Jack o Lantern. I’m coming up on week dry spell in the Query Wars. Time to bust out a high powered, mega query blast!! Those agents aren’t going to know what hit them. *laughs maniacally*

Querying thought of the Day

I used to think I had a kind of sixth sense. I used to feel like I just “knew” things were going to happen. Well, I was wrong. 🙂 It seems like the days I wake up thinking, “I have a good feeling about today,” are the days that I have an empty inbox. Or…

More work (and that’s okay)

This weekend I had an epiphany for PAMR. I realized that it really needed to be in first person. I’ve already written about 6000 words, so changing is going to be no small task. Because, obviously, it’s more than just changing every “she” to “I.” I’ve actually gone back tonight and changed the first chapter…

I just got tired of the moon

Not the real moon. The moon on my blog template. It was getting on my nerves. So I changed it. Moved it up where it was slightly less imposing. I don’t know, though. My blog still has a dark, ominous feel to it. Oh well.

The most accurate test in the world!

Click the picture to take the test. As you can see, I came up as Galadriel. The test describes me as “Possessing a rare combination of wisdom and humility, while serenely dominating your environment you selflessly use your powers to care for others.” Clearly, this test is spot on. 🙂

Building the wall

So, once again, a post on Natalie’s blog got me thinking. I was analyzing today my unexpected emotion when it came to querying Midas. It’s been two weeks to the day since I sent out those first queries. Two weeks, and was already starting to feel like, “Oh well, I guess I failed.” I almost…

I’m absolutely giddy!

Today, I am thrilled to announce that my twin sister has started to write her first novel! As you can see, all the rumors about twins are true; we really DO do everything exactly the same. 🙂 Kidding, but truly, my sister and I have always shared a love for all things creative. I have…

New Babies

I started thinking about an analogy I made in a comment on Natalie’s blog last night. I was musing over the fact that we MoMo’s (see side link list) are all starting brand new stories. I compared a new story to a newborn. In many many ways, they are the same. They require so much…

A Post in Two Parts

Part One: Querying is hard. Today, I came to the end of a Dr. Pepper 12 pack. Inside the box, was a printed code for a contest. 1 in 6 win, it said. I entered the code online and a message came up: Sorry, your code is not a winner. Imagine that box flying across…

How I know I am a writer

About 4 months ago, a tiny flicker of a new story idea came into my mind. I have thought about it on and off since then, scribbling little notes in my Moleskine and such. Well, now that Midas is out in the world, I find myself craving a new story to write. So naturally, this…
