I Need a Moment to Moment Personal Coach!

Life’s been chaotic again. In a good way. In mid-September I went off to a writing workshop on the Oregon coast. Mystery writing. Don’t panic, I’m not leaving fantasy and science fiction behind, just rounding out my skill set. Cause mysteries can exist everywhere. Even on other planets and in other worlds. So the workshop was fabulous, taught by Kristine Kathryn Rusch (aka Kris Nelscott and Kristine Grayson). There were twelve of us, writing our…

Scars

I had another post I was going to write today, but that one’s going to be postponed, because this one seems more timely. After my shower today, as I poured moisturizer on my entire body, I noticed something about one of my fingernails. It used to be grooved because of an old injury, but now it’s not. The scar on my finger is still there. A reminder of the power we have to ignore wakeup…

Show & Tell!

Way back when, I promised photos! I’ve finally gotten it together to take some photos. First up, the dragon garden. Although the spousal unit calls it the draggin’ garden because I’ve spent a lot of time draggin’ pots around. Hmph.   I’m including three photos here. This is the area of our property that has the most sun and beneath the lime green umbrella is where I spend a lot of time writing. It’s my…

I’m Alive!

I haven’t been around, I know. For months! So, here’s what’s been going on all spring and early summer First there was construction. Our only bathroom was falling apart, seriously falling apart. So, we took out loans and for 3 weeks we got a portapotty and I was surrounded by construction. Whee! It was a nasty, wet spring here and every time I planned to go out and weed or plant things, I looked out…

Spring!

Today’s the first day of spring. It’s been a soggy month so far. Which means I’ve been staying inside and getting lots done. I’ve been writing – lots. I finished a story that’s going to appear in a bundle about faeries this summer. I’ll let you know when that happens and links. I also finished a fairy tale story that’s going to be in a bundle in the fall. Whoo hoo! And in a couple…

Working Hard!

Howdy! I’ve been doing half a million things. Readying not one, but two novels for publication, spiffing up a couple of short stories and trying to keep my head above water. This year my goal is to publish something every single month and get the backlog of fiction cleared out. Or at least off my desktop where it’s screaming at me. So, this month, I’ve published a collection of short fiction! Stories of the Jeweled…

Working!

Hi all! This is just a quick note to let you know that I’m alive, well and floundering. I made huge plans for this year, wrote out my goals for the year and then began to hyperventilate. So, I’ve been trying to breathe and look at the massive list of things I accomplished last year. And am trying to move forward. Slowly. Nose down and focusing on the work. I’m still working on the Metamorphosis…
