Midnight Oil

Another night, come and gone Another night vanquished by day Another night I’ll never get back The clock is mocking me I’m staring at the freeway of my mind, a pretzel of overpasses, underpasses, onramps, exits. They crisscross, intersect, disconnect. Is it an excuse or a condition? Just pick one. Pick a lane and don’tContinue reading “Midnight Oil”

Dear Indie | From Hybrid to Fully Independent

Hi Indies! It’s been too long–yes, since I’ve posted–but, also that I’ve been waiting for this day. 😀 Today, I am officially no longer a hybrid author, but fully Independent. Today, all of the rights my publisher ever had for any of my books are completely reverted to me to do with whatever I want!Continue reading “Dear Indie | From Hybrid to Fully Independent”

#SongLyricSunday | Away – Breaking Benjamin

I mean…you knew this was coming, right? I can’t mention Breaking Benjamin in a post and then NOT pick one of their songs the following week. 😀 Gaw, I’m still gushing and just look at that full sleeve tattoo! *melts into chair* And for how close he looks here, it was even closer in realContinue reading “#SongLyricSunday | Away – Breaking Benjamin”

Confessions of a Hybrid Author | It’s Not a Quantum Leap, But…

It’s fascinating to me that so many authors start with a story, and that story becomes their first finished rough draft and then, their first published book–no matter how long it takes them to accomplish each of those stages. That is not how my writing journey started. The first rough draft I ever finished tookContinue reading “Confessions of a Hybrid Author | It’s Not a Quantum Leap, But…”

#SongLyricSunday | Try Again – Aaliyah

A big Thank You to our host, Jim over at A Unique Title For Me for another week of musical themes to challenge ourselves with.

Make sure you click on theContinue reading “#SongLyricSunday | Try Again – Aaliyah”

#SongLyricSunday ♫ A Special Event Post

But as some of you are reading this, I’m getting ready to take myContinue reading “#SongLyricSunday ♫ A Special Event Post”

A Day With My Muse

As I’m watching the calendar zip toward the end of the year, I’m really feeling the pressure, and all of my 2019 goals slip right through my fingers. It’s not that I haven’t been writing, I’ve just been writing everything except the books I had planned to finish before the end of the year. DisciplineContinue reading “A Day With My Muse”

My Preciousss

How big is it? Will it ever see the light of day? Do you feel worthy enough to be its creator? How long are you going to hoard it all to yourself in the dank caverns of your ‘unfinished’ works like Gollum and his precious ring? Writers, I’m talking about that ONE story that’s beenContinue reading “My Preciousss”

Meet the Character | The Meddler

Call me cupid. I’m not a sap, I just like seeing my friends so deep in the well, they can’t even tell they’re sinking. It’s that moment when it finally hits them that I get the biggest thrill. And I don’t mind taking in glory only I’m aware of while standing off stage; in theContinue reading “Meet the Character | The Meddler”

Houston, We Have A Problem

Warning: This might be a rant. Recently, I’ve noticed that more and more medical clinics are giving into the demand for a paperless society, adopting the use of tablets for patients to use in place of those pesky forms they never seem to have an endless supply of. And I’m all for the tablets, honestly.Continue reading “Houston, We Have A Problem”
