Writers Need Feedback: The Difference Between Blog Posts and Books

I once had lunch with a writer, someone I knew well from high school, who had brought her play for me to read while I was sitting in front of her. The play was cleverly written; it was a roman à clef – or, perhaps more properly, une pièce de theatre à clef. It was about office politics that she had experienced, and there was a vampire replete with cape and the other accoutrements of vampiredom. ...more
I agree with you about the need for feedback and I hear what others are saying about the pros ...more

How to Find Your Authentic Voice

When I was in elementary school, I declared that I'd be a writer. By high school, though, I was sure I'd go to law school. That too, changed over the years. In college, I had a professor ask me to consider switching my major to English because she enjoyed my writing so much; it would be a "waste of time" to pursue anything else. I wondered if she was high. (To be clear, I hadn't yet declared a major, so, perhaps I was high. No, really. Maybe I was. It was the late '90s and I don't need your judgment. Great, now I'm off track.) ...more
Love your post! I can so relate. Thank you for sharing. I couldn't agree more. Especially, the ...more

NaBloPoMo Day TwentyFour: In a Weird Place

So today has been a little weird. I’m listless, bored, yet, full of energy it would seem, as I’ve tried to take the easy way out and ooze into bed and sleep the day away, only to have fits and get up every 10 minutes....more

Is There Such a Thing Like a Comment's Guide for Blogging?

Is there a guide to post blog comments?  During the courses Blogging 101 and 201, we wondered what'd be the blogosphere etiquette and exchanged ideas on that. We shared what we individually accepted as the right behaviors and moved on....more

What About 2015? Planning ahead. Part 4. The Campaigns & Timelines

Happy Monday! I don’t know about you, but I try to disconnect from the office work on the weekends, and I was reading this awesome book, so I decided to share with you a review of the “Death on Anyone” from DJ Swykert. What a book! I loved it....more

When work is the escape...

I have never been more thankful that I gave up teaching than I am today. If I were a teacher, I would not be heading to work. Instead, I would be living the life fantastic -- cleaning and cooking and preparing for Thursday's big bash at my leisure. Lucky me! I get to go to work. (I am not being sarcastic.)...more

I'm Thankful For My Job (and not just because I get a paycheck)

It can be easy to focus on the negative in work situations, and I am guilty of this a lot lately. As much as I’m ready for something new, my job has largely been a good situation for the last five-and-a-half years, and I’m grateful for it. Without my current position, I don’t think I would have been able to figure out what’s next for me—and actually believe that I’m capable of doing it....more

All His Words

Twenty-four days ago I started this little NaBloPoMo  project in tandem with Nanowrimo. So basically I’m sick to death of words.But I’ll be damned if I’ll stop with just a week to go. I will blog every day of this damn month. I will continue to add words to my Nanowrimo word count even if what I’m writing resembles something more akin to a bad Jackson Pollock wannabee painting than a lovely and coherent still life that invites you into the story....more

A surprise on my doorstep

Yesterday was my birthday and you knew that right? It’s not like I’ve been keeping it a secret LOL! The day was spent in my favorite way with my family doing family stuff and sneaking in some house stuff.  Curtains hung as we continue to settle into our home after more than a year....more
