A Hobby?

Sometimes I'll tell someone that I'm a writer.  Then as the discussion progresses I tell that person I don't write for a living (yet).  They usually respond by saying, "so writing is your hobby?" …Continue

Do you think about your audience as you write?  Do you write simply for the story and characters, following where they take you?  Maybe your approach is somewhere in between.  It was brought to my…Continue

I'm sorry to hear about your computer.  What a bummer!  Thanks for checking in.  I'm so psyched to read the critiques.

Hi ladies!  Just wanted to check in and say that me and the little one are doing well.  He'll be four weeks old tomorrow and I can't even believe it.  I'm hoping to pick up writing again very soon.  Miss you gals!

I swear facebook is a drug.  I go on to do one quick thing and it turns into two hours of shennanigans!

Holy cow!  I just did a master word count for my novel and I'm up 90,402!  I feel like I'll need at least another 50k before I can call the first draft complete.  This is completely out of industry range for a first novel which is typically 80-100k.  Yikes. I'm wondering if I will need to do major cutting or chop it into two seperate books...?

Grrrrrr, falling into that age old trap where I backread 30 pages instead of writing new ones!

It's the weather!!!! My kinees and fingers are aching and I love the feel o the air today.

Monday-39 words...it's something...working on homework...

Hahaha!  Don't apologize.  At least this topic is a concern of our authorship.  Way more relevant than the internet games and random articles I was reading earlier.
