It's been quite a fight since I started this journey back when I was a girl of 14 years old. I suffered disappointments and setbacks. Sometimes I wanted to quit, but you know what...? IT WAS WORTH IT! You may have seen on my social media accounts, the news I have been waiting for, for … Continue reading Offer of Publication: Tinderbox!
Still waiting, but this is common for us writers. I’m not saying anything new. It’s tough, frustrating, but you keep at it. It’s the same for artists–I’m looking at YOU, Robin Brantley. But we keep going because we love what we do. Even when we want to quit. Even when we say we’re going to … Continue reading Musing 03/19/21 – Diverse Writers: Still a Long Way to Go.
After many days of headaches and worries, my 9 to 5 finally allowed us to Work From Home (WFH). Don't get me wrong, I'm still worried, but not as as much. I worried about my Big Brother, who had Type 2. I'm calmer now and having to stay in. Since our governor just dropped the … Continue reading The Publishing Industry and COVID19
My wonderful, beautiful peeps! I've waited decades for this day! I am —pleased? Ecstatic? Going completely insane with happiness? All three! As of today, I have signed with and am now represented by Anne Tibbets of the D4EO Literary Agency Donald Maass Literary Agency! Dance with me! And when I say, decades, I mean DECADES! … Continue reading I HAVE AN AGENT!
While Big Brother and I were chilling for my #Birthday we binged watched episodes of #StarTrekDS9 and discovered a very interesting one called Far Beyond the Stars (recommended @AnneTibbets ) which involved another Captain Sisko vision-quest. <1> In this episode he is "an under-appreciated science fiction magazine writer in the 1950s America." (IMDB) Neither Big … Continue reading Mini Musing 10/18/19 – Reprint!
A while back I wrote a blog post referencing a video by the Nostalgia Critic asking the question, is weird the new good? https://authorwasimpsonblog.wordpress.com/2017/08/28/musing-082817-weird-is-the-new-brilliant/ The question recently came to my mind again by way of an article on the Barnes and Noble site, Science-Fiction/Fantasy Blog of 7 Impossible Fantasy Cities Worth the Visit by Sam … Continue reading Mini-Musing 4/13/19 ~ Should I Embrace The Weird?
I seriously love being a writer! Sure, sometimes I gripe and complain and feel like giving up but that's all of us. I really love placing words on paper -- or more accurately now a computer screen! Today I had the pleasure of attending the Fantasy Panel and Book Signing at Barnes and Noble in … Continue reading Fantasy Panel and Book Signing at Barnes & Noble
...Or, "If I can do it the hard way, why can't you?" I know it's been awhile since I posted here. But it's been one of those, life gets in the way, kind of years. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you'll know I was downsized from my job of ten years in … Continue reading Musing 11/5/18 ~ Follow the Rules!
This is a big step for me. I had already started my new work, Gunslinger Witch, so I couldn’t do NaNoWriMo 2017, however like many of my fellow authors I did follow along. Tonight, I broke the 50K mark at 52,315! Go me. Now of course, many of my fellow authors have also reached this … Continue reading Mini-Musing 11/27/17 ~ I did it!
Well peeps, in about 12 days, I’ll be hitting a milestone birthday –that’s right, I’ll be um – 30. Forget what I said about being 33 last year. I’m taking a bit of a break from my current WIP, tentatively titled Gunslinger Witch, although my friend Robin says I should be careful it’s not confused … Continue reading Musing 10/16/17 – Are We Getting Too Old For This Sh**? Part 2 or: “So now blogs are obsolete?”
With all the Musings, I’ve been writing for the past few weeks you would think this would be easier. I’m considering letting my work go. It took me five years to write my work mainly due to life throwing all types of crap at me and I’ve actually gotten some positive feedback not to mention … Continue reading Mini-Musing: 09/17/17 ~ It’s Hard to Let Go
