Cold Feet!

Cold Feet!

Even though spring has finally sprung around here, I’ve got cold feet! Now, these feet aren’t actually freezing. I’m one of the ones who would wear sandals in the winter if it weren’t for the snow. This is the OTHER kind of cold feet. I’ve reached the final polish of the final chapters of my […]

My Brain is Turducken

My Brain is Turducken

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, you know that this last week or so has been rough. We had a bout of flu ravage our household right after a few of us finally got over nasty colds. It’s like the viruses new spring was upon us and we weren’t going to be cooped […]

My First

My First

I didn’t want to be a writer. Don’t get me wrong. Growing up, I loved to read and write. It just never occurred to be to want to be a writer. I wanted to be a teacher. I realized at some point in high school that it would be hard for me to be a […]

Am I Still A Pantster?

Am I Still A Pantster?

I wrote the prologue and first two chapters of my new project, tentatively titled Bellanok, with unbelievable ease. Seriously. The total so far is about 4,000 words, and I probably cranked it out in 2-3 hours over a couple of days. But then it happened. On Saturday, I opened up Scrivener, re-read the last chapter, […]

New Project Euphoria

New Project Euphoria

I didn’t think it would happen, but at last it did. On Saturday, I finally finished the revision of my latest WIP. What a rush to hit ‘save’ and close that last chapter. It is done. Oddly enough, though, with 3 chapters left to revise, the female lead in my next project just wouldn’t be […]

A Bad Start

A Bad Start

Do you ever have the feeling that you’ve failed before you even begin? The new year was no surprise, of course. I’d been planning for a couple of weeks. This was going to be a year of changes in my life. My word for 2014 was purpose-driven–something that had been lacking in 2013. After praying […]

Ready, Set, Write!

Ready, Set, Write!

This week, the NAF writers are going to share their writing goals for 2014! Now, I know some of you are shaking your heads. What’s the point of making New Year’s Resolutions you’re going to break next week anyway? Well, for me, my OCDness likes the crispness of beginnings. Whenever I decide to make changes, […]

Preparing for the Future

Preparing for the Future

This past weekend, I sat down with my new iBloom life and business planner to figure out what I was going to do in the year to come. The front of the planner has a whole section on reflecting on 2013 and my and God’s vision for 2014. It really made me think about where […]
