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.

For the past 6 weeks my days start a bit earlier than I'm use to due to our new Xmas addition of a puppy named Strawberry for Mr 5yo.

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

FoodFic Look at DAKOTA

Charlotte Brevik knows how to make a girl feel at home. The retired-nurse/sheriff’s wife fills Lola Wicks with chicken and dumplings swamped in peppery gravy, homemade bread, and creamy casserole of butterbeans she grew and canned herself. A hearty meal…

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…

Good Evening!

Adjust a little- of things are not going as planned. Don’t bang your head against the wall and say something like “why me?” That’s really not going to do anything for you.

Instead, take a look at the situation. What could you do a little differently? How can you adjust to make…

Welcome Guido Henkel, Author of HUNTED

Food plays such an elemental part of our lives that I am often surprised how little of it is shown in fiction, and even in movies or TV shows. I mean, after all, didn’t we just have breakfast, and then lunch, and now we’re eating again? There are days when it feels that our…
