Henlit: Whether They Realize It or not, Millions of Boomers Are Waiting For it

When did I stop writing about the angst of torrid love, motherhood, wandering husbands, and terrible bosses? About the time, probably, that I got bored with the angst and became a hen.

In the Company of Writers

In the Company of Writers

Yes, this is a familiar theme for me. I love writing and I love being with people. I know, accept, and am comfortable with the duality of my writing life. I am completely at ease ensconced in my oversized chair reading the draft of a piece of writing on my laptop. Coffee…

CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHOR Proliferative Ashes – For Paul Celan

Proliferative Ashes is a poem about loss and love; it is a poem about language, and about the loss of language.

 

When I started studying Celan, I felt a connection with this lover of words, of poetry, and of people. I came to learn that, as a…

Welcome Tonya Kappes, Author of Spies and Spells

There is just something about going to a diner in a small town. . .
I grew up in a small rural Kentucky town. It’s one of those thing when someone asks me where I’m from, I’m going to say the county name instead of the city. That’s just the way a small town…

How to write during School Holidays

Now that I've transitioned from my 4 hour daily commute as a financial software consultant to working from home as a Paranormal Romance writer (aka wannabe author) I am absolutely loving my life.  I never thought it would happen and each morning I marvel at how I enjoy my days now.

I wake (ummm, am constantly jumped on by the…

Controlling Chaos

Lately I’ve discovered that I’ve been placing a tremendous amount of stress upon myself by overloading my goal setting for my writing career. Things such as research time, story development, meeting daily word counts, editing completions, reaching out to agents daily, and meeting deadlines are just some of the things consuming me. I also have a full time - and very stressful – day job. I know I’m not alone. I hear many people complain about the very same thing. What I don't hear are many…
