Finishing Goals and Making New Ones

So this month I am going to finish the second draft of my second novel in the Grover Cleveland Academy Series (why can’t it just have a name already?!?!?!?!). I’ve had the end in sight for about a week now, and I’m so excited that I can’t help thinking that everything that I want to […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The End of the Road

That’s right, folks. I wrote 50,000 words in one month. I dedicated all of November to writing out my second Grover Cleveland novel, no matter how bad it sounded in type.

How about starting the story completely over and rewriting it from another point of view? Yeah, I just did that. Ah, we fickle writers. We can never make up our minds, […]

Flamin’ Friday: Movin’ Right Along

I have to admit folks, that there were about three weeks there where I didn’t even look at Into the Flames. Or I would open the document and wait for it to load only to get distracted again. My life has been pretty hectic recently, but after things calmed down a little (just a little, […]

Six Reasons Why This Blog Post Is Lame

I have to admit something to you all. I am on the brink of being overwhelmed, and that is why you have not had an overabundance of blog posts from me recently. This is all completely my fault. Offered projects whose completion dates loomed far in the future or even in that wonderful land of […]
