Exploring life through writing

It’s time to PARTY! It’s time to CELEBRATE!!! Sleepwalker Chronicles: The Awakening, the first book in the trilogy, is LIVE on Amazon!   Labor of love, many sleepless hours, writing, editing, editing, beta-reading, editing, editing, editing some more (you get the picture) is here at last. The e-book version is available now along with the […]

The Cover Is Here! NaNoLA First Anthology

This is a very exciting day and I would love to share it with you! My short story is being published as a part of the first NaNoLA anthology, “Believe Me Not, An Unreliable Narrator” and today I got the first peek at the cover. I’m dying to share it with you, so here it […]

Writing Bucket List

Recently I read an awesome post by JD of A Wrestling Writer on Out Of The Well called Writing Bucket List. I have never been big on bucket lists. Maybe I’m not ready to die (just kidding!) or just cause I’m not big on adrenaline rush, but I’ve never thought of a specific bucket list, […]

I love my Kindle

Ok, I know, I¬†shouldn’t be professing love to an inanimate object, but I do love that darn thing! My Kindle is the first generation, nothing fancy (ok, it has the 3G, hallelujah!), but I love it just the way it is. I received it for Christmas few years ago and it’s the best “toy” I […]

Writing is My Lifeline

I am here to profess my love for Writing. I am not ashamed to admit, that when we first met, I was very intimidated and shy around Writing. I wasn’t sure if I was worth It, or ever be good enough for It. Writing seemed so well defined and polished and I surely would never […]

Writing is Courage

Share the Inspiration, My Favorite Quotes

As I am following my 500 words a day plan (still going strong!), I wanted to share something with you. As writers we know the power of a word. We write thousands of words that paint stories that make readers laugh and cry and feel as if they are in the middle of the story. […]

I Disappear When I Write

I heard somewhere that Jules Verne was so engrossed in his writing that when he was working on a chapter taking place in Arctic, he got sick with flu. It happens to all of us more often than not, when we write, we become so much part of the story, we transport there and the […]

Be Flexible With Your Tools

Every writer has a favorite method of putting words on paper. Some like composition books and a #2 pencil. Some love a pretty moleskin journal and a nice, easy flowing pen. Some love laptops and some are cool with a tablet on a go and some still use good old typewriters. I am a computer […]

A Lesson in Patience

Last night an orchid I have been babysitting for exactly a year finally bloomed. I was beside myself with joy, I really thought the day would never come. You might not understand what’s the big deal here, but then you need to know one thing about me. I have a green thumb when it comes […]
