I have a synopsis!

| March 8, 2016

As I told friends, I could disappear forever into the plotholes, and it’s so rough, I could lop off a limb on the jagged edges, but I’m about to go edit–and that’s when magic happens–when you see what you have, and how your unconscious has been plotting behind your back. I know a story/synopsis is […]

Random on a Wednesday

| March 2, 2016

Honestly, I thought it was Tuesday. Who knew? I also thought I’d be better at keeping up with my blog! But since I’m not, a quick catch-up! My Medical Blitz got rejected, but I’m submitting something else. I have almost three chapters and the beginning of a synopsis. Hoping to have it all shiny and […]

Facebook Launch Party (and too many other things)!

| October 14, 2015

Until the beginning of November I have too much to do. I’ve finished the pages of my proposal–the first three chapters. Still wrestling with the synopsis. My friend, Karen Whiddon and I call them Snopes, after Faulkner’s rather slippery barn burning family. You just can’t pin them down! We also have stuff going on around our abode. I had to […]

Friday at Random

| October 9, 2015

I love the phrase, “at random.” Don’t know why. Some words just feel good and sound good. It’s Friday, and I have too much to do, so this is going to be a random post. Just things that pop into my head. The clouds have rolled in. I love cloudy days. And the leaves are […]

Wednesday, and still at the synopsis!

| September 30, 2015

I love Wednesdays, because you still have a few days of week left, but I start to feel all crowded by the things I haven’t done. Today, I have to have my nails done. It’s the only girly thing I do, and they look as if I’ve been grinding them on sandpaper. Could have done […]

Rule Breaking

| September 29, 2015

I’d love to break the rules. I’m naturally someone who wants to do the right thing. I come from a long line of rule breakers, and while they terrify me, I secretly wish I could be a little more like them. A friend once told me that behind my back in high school, people called […]

Ooops–it’s Wednesday, the 5th!

| January 5, 2011

So much for blogging regularly. I’m having a January as busy as the holidays. Lots of stuff going on around the abode and with the family. Do you ever find yourself planning around the stack of errands you face in a day? It’s like treading water in mud. So, today, around errands, I’m writing a […]

Never on Sunday?

| September 27, 2009

I’ve mentioned this before–I don’t often post on the weekends, but rain in our area has apparently sent the satellite into perhaps fatal shock, so I thought I’d just catch up–from the coffee shop again. Also, I’m working on a 2-page synopsis for the three chapters I have–yay!–finished for my new proposal, and I need […]

Synopses Don’t Come Easy

| August 10, 2009

I’m battling away with “the short form.” It’s making me suspect I talk too much. How to cram a story into essentially < than 500 words? I’ve done this before. Just can’t seem to do it now. Uh-oh. That could mean something’s off, if I’m being all defensive, explaining more with excess words. Better think about […]
