This is the feed for my blog. I update the blog... occasionally? What's a phrase for "Not Terribly Frequently" that makes me sound busy rather than lazy? "When the mood strikes?", "As time allows?", "Every fortnight?" Hmmm.

I update the blog as much as I can. I'm writing, you know.

Wow. How far into August are we now? Ugh. July is a blur, a haze. Vacation rocked, but the prep for it, the vacation itself, the travel and the catching up afterward took most of the month. I also got to help out some good…

HWA Countdown

HWA Countdown

I think when Mercedes and I started the HWA Challenge we thought it would go faster. We’d be able to give updates almost daily and laugh at one another as we counted our victories on the march to horror writing fame. There are a few…

Navigating by the stars at night

I received my contributor’s copy of Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy yesterday. I contributed a prose poem/flash fiction piece called “Something with Subtitles, Maybe” to the anthology. I really like the way the whole thing comes together with the Hollywood theme. I’m looking…

A Work in Progress Wednesday Report… ON Wednesday? Wha?

A Work in Progress Wednesday Report… ON Wednesday? Wha?

Yes. I’m on time for a change. Not a big report today other than to say I haven’t used what few writing opportunities that have come my way. The weekend was exhausting, and I still seem to be recovering from it. Managed to up my…

Work In Progress Wednesday – Am I late yet?

Work In Progress Wednesday – Am I late yet?

I’ve given up on making excuses as to why I can’t get my Wednesday update posted somewhere around, I don’t know, Wednesday. Things happen, right? Call the the Mid-ish Week Update if that keeps you from throwing things. The book couldn’t be going better. I…
