Itching

I realized the other day just how much my series is screaming at me.  Well, one of the books, in particular.  This particular book is a very loud one for me.  A few years ago, the protagonist awoke me from a dead sleep, telling me her story (yes, I even heard her voice in my …

Different Voice

I read something from NaNoWriMo the other day, questioning whether you write differently than you speak. My response?  Duh! I mean, I’m not the most verbose woman around.  I actually admire women who are able to speak their minds without fear.  I, on the other hand, am… reserved to say the least.  In a group …

Free E-Books

One of the gifts my sweetheart gave me for Valentine’s Day was an e-reader.  Being the Frugal Franny that I am, I rushed right into my shopping area and downloaded all of the free books I could get my hands on.  As an author of Young Adult Speculative Fiction, that’s what I seek out when …

Camp NaNo

Have you ever considered writing?  Sounds like fun, right?  Have you ever heard of NaNoWriMo?  It’s a challenge in November, where writers are encouraged to write a novel in 30 days.  A full, 50,000 word novel (about 125 pages).  Sounds impossible, right?  It’s not.  Thousands of people do it every year.  My first year I tried, …

He Believes in Me!

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer.  I didn’t understand exactly what that meant, but when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would first answer, “A mommy” and then follow that with “A writer.” At the time, I had no idea that I am …

Port… Something

I was able to go on another date with my guy yesterday.  With all of the massive things which have been going on in our lives in the past month, we’ve been so busy that we haven’t been able to make time for a date.  Yesterday, we made it happen.  Yay! He lives far away …

Bra

I hate bra shopping.  It’s worse than jeans shopping.  Seriously!  I’d rather wash dishes than go bra shopping! First off, you have to go through the process of bra shopping.  What a painful process!  The first step is admitting that it’s time to look for a new bra.  That means change.  Yuck!  And then you …

Three Hours

I recently read an article which said that successful people get up three hours before they’re due to be at work.  Being a morning person, that just seems to make sense for my life.  Sure, it means I need to get to bed a bit earlier than my normal old-biddy hour, but that too makes sense …

Ahhhhh

Last night, I had lots of stuff to do.  I needed to do dishes, I should have gone for a walk, and I’ve been wanting to clean the bathroom for days.  Between my hectic days at work, being slightly sleep deprived, and other contributing factors, I was just exhausted by the time I got home …

Dream

“Dreams” has been a fairly common thread in my life lately. In my entire life, there has only been one man whose face has actually been visible in my dreams.  Jerry O’Connell.  Mmmm.  Jerry O’Connell.  I know, I know – not your typical dreamboat, but for some reason, he does it for me.  He was …
