Off the Covid Benches and Into the Query Trenches

Off the Covid Benches and Into the Query Trenches

I finished my manuscript. There, I said it. That statement used to be gilded with large CAPS, exclamation points, and rainbow font in true ROYGBV fashion, yet somehow it feels different this time. For some reason, I’m not feeling the typical show of excitement to...

The time is Now!

The time is Now!

I'll admit it, I'm as giddy as Molder and Scully fan club as I geek out over the news of the Pentagon's UFO report scheduled to be delivered to congress any day now. It's not like I ever needed proof that aliens exist, but boy will it be fun to watch distinguished...

Staying COVID Positive

Staying COVID Positive

We did everything we were supposed to do. We followed the recommendations. We didn’t let the Covid fatigue get us down. We stuck with the protocols to prevent any of us from getting sick and stayed vigilant. We even signed our kids up for virtual schooling for the...

Cookies and Milk

Cookies and Milk

Creating has become a challenge as I aim to find a balance between time, energy, and productive cycles. That challenge for me lately has been getting back to my writing. There’s always a reason not to write. There will always be barriers that stand between a writer...

The Last Dance

The Last Dance

The Beast of Change

The Beast of Change

When change comes, as it always does, we sometimes stand in its way. Other times we embrace it with open arms, but no matter how we react to it, one variable never seems to budge—ready or not, here it comes! Our path in life and the simple fact that we're human sets...

A Saga for a New Year: A New Hope

A Saga for a New Year: A New Hope

I woke up this New Year's morning with zero idea on how to ring in the new year. What I knew for certain was that my day always starts with writing. Okay, I thought, I'll start with some kind of New Year's resolution-y thing to ring in the moment. Hubby’s been sick,...

Toxic Wasters

Toxic Wasters

There are toxic transactions, people, and patterns in our everyday lives that often seem to impede our growth and evolution as we make our way out on to the path to becoming. It isn't so much that we opted to invite this into our lives, but more in line with the fact...

Tricks Are Treats- The Heart of Character

Tricks Are Treats- The Heart of Character

What makes a character three-dimensional? Is there a secret recipe to bringing them to life on the page? I believe it's much like the folding and unfolding of the universe. Layers of a character can open portals to the known and unknown. Writers who spend much of...
