Writer Wednesday: Morning Pages

A number of years ago I came across a book about writing by Julia Cameron. The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life has been one of those resources/sources of inspiration that I’ve turned to time and time again. With writing exercises throughout the book, it’s been helpful in getting my... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: NaNoWriMo Update

Happy seventh day of NaNoWriMo 2018! Last Thursday was the official kick-off of this awesome annual event, and since that time I’ve gotten 8,002 words down on paper. Ahem, keyboard.  Behind a little at this point, but the battle is not lost. Most of the words came last night during our monthly Writer’s Block. Writer’s... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Final Day of Prep

There was some work sprinkled throughout, but nothing back breaking or mind bending.... Continue Reading →

Writing Wednesday: NaNoWriMo Prep

The old faithful Traveler’s Notebook.  I was a little shocked when I realized that the first notebook insert had gotten me through two previous NaNoWriMos. I’ve officially leaked over into another notebook insert due to all my scribblings for 2018, but it’s cool to see years of work accumulated in one place. Planning and writing... Continue Reading →

Writer Wednesday: Writer Friends

Today I had lunch with a writer friend. Last evening I met with a small group of writers for what we call Writer's Block; it's a once-a-month meeting where we spend a few hours working on our individual projects. Beforehand, though, we meet for dinner and talk. Having a writer friend(s) is one of the... Continue Reading →

Another Bend in the Road

My intention was to finish the revised draft this summer and have it off to the beta-readers by the first of September. Four days after my last blog there came another bend in the road; I discovered I was five weeks pregnant. 😃 This is a dream-come-true, as my husband and I were trying to... Continue Reading →
