A Different Kind of YA Fantasy

I am an avid reader of YA fantasy. I have been exposed to vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, fairies, and the like. I am enchanted by them, but sometimes wish I could read something in the same genre, but with a different sort of mysticism....more

story on film

Few writers ever see their work published. Fewer still see their published work make the jump from printed word to acted scenes, whether live performance or recorded film. Yet, all of our stories already exist in imagery, we just tend to forget where it first played…...more

Writers talking shop: solidarity or solitary

Here on BlogHer, we have this writer’s group that sits underused in terms of activity, although I wonder if it is used at all in a passive, review sort of way. I frequent another site devoted to women writers of all types who wish to enhance and hone their writing skills. Each has things that they do well; to me, both sites are complementary.Yet if there is one thing I’ve noticed on both, it is how we interact on topics in the news, things like food, children, sex, politics, and on any number of other topics. What we don’t do is talk shop as writers....more

that kind of criticism will scare someone away, not help them improve their writing, or how they ...more

I've recently started my own blog!

I'm a wife and a daughter. I'm a non-practicing psychologist and a full-time mortgage analyst. I'm a socially conservative, politically agnostic, non-glamorous, sarcastic young woman who has repeatedly considered the possibility of leaving the big city for a small town. I love photography and traveling. And I probably eat more at breakfast than at any other meal of the day.I kindly invite you to visit my blog: http://mustbeliberating.blogspot.com/...more

muddled middles

Borrowing the body of my latest blog post for the group.Writing the beginning of a story is easy. The possibilities are limitless, constrained only by imagination. As we begin, each new character, situation, setting, and explanation helps develop an image of person and place and circumstance, requiring the writer to be true to the parameters as they move forward with the story....more

ray of inspiration

Authority and Voice

Last year, I developed a webinar for Parent Bloggers Network about writing techniques. I compiled this advice from my graduate writing program and from the curriculum I taught for two years in composition 101 at a local community college. That's a very long-winded way of saying I didn't make this stuff up. ...more
