NaNoInspiration: Day 22

Writing a book is a adventure. To begin with it is a toy and amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him... read more

Caro Kinkead

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something or the other and finished my first “novel” at the age of eight (five pages, which my mother still has and threatens to sell to the National Enquirer when I make the NYT bestseller list). I have the usual collection of adolescent bad poetry and purple prose, much of which has thankfully disappeared — though I recently unearthed the first romance novel I completed. :: shudders ::


What I Write

These days, I’m focused on a contemporary romance series set in the fictional town of Henry’s Mills, close enough to New York and Boston to enjoy their amenities — but far enough away that urbanites wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle can deem it “rural.” The residents have cannily embraced this designation for tourism purposes.

The first book is in editing, with the second in the series planned for NaNoWriMo 2015. With luck, both will be published in 2016. Of course, that’s not to say something shiny and new won’t come along to catch my attention at any moment…

What You'll Find Here

At this point, I’m sharing my thoughts, knitting projects, general geekiness, and whatever else might fall out of my brain. Current media obsessions are The Flash, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Blindspot, and comics in general and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in particular.

Staring Down the NaNo Tunnel

I wrote 2,133 words this morning. Let me clarify. I wrote 2,133 words between 5:30 and 7:15 AM. That is…a lot of words. At this moment, I have 2,298 words to go, four days left, and pretty much just the climax to sketch out before I have something that I want to... read more

Because It’s November 1…

Late in the day, but I’ve managed to write 2566 words for the first day of NaNoWriMo. I’ve also managed to edit ten pages on another manuscript, so I think I’m allowed to take a little time off and do some knitting this evening. But because it is... read more

Reading Addictions

From I’m a reader. I’m also a writer, but I started down that road because there were stories I wanted to tell that no one had written yet. Given me free time, a comfy chair and something that grips my attention, be the... read more

Storing the Stash

Various tasks accomplished this weekend, along with attending a fascinating workshop by Laurie Schnebly Campbell Saturday. If you get a chance to attend one of Laurie’s workshops online or in person, I definitely recommend it. I came away with a good many notes... read more
