we sit quietly here, frettingover nothing in particular. some bemoan their lot,others get on with it willingly. stop and have a cup of tea. while others walk in #ice and mud,while others #drown,while others #starve. without a #cup of tea. sbm. See More

seems it means many things, that

i do not wish to define,



words came in the night,

the fears of the day



i spoke to the bear, asked him

what will happen today?


he says he does not know.

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?

Commercial vs. Literary Fiction

What is commercial fiction? The term gets thrown around a lot. Do you write “literary” fiction, or “commercial” fiction? As a writer, I hate this question. Labelling some kinds of fiction as commercial and others as literary…See More
