You Aren’t Going to Believe This!

Ok, so this is what happened. After work on Friday (two weeks from opening night of my show) I get a call from the father of one of my cast members. He told me that she checked herself into a hospital where they have admitted her for a few days and she won’t know exactly…

My Brain Has Stalled / Last of the Weavers

I have hit a bit of a wall. I’ve started the rewrite of my book and the first chapter came put pretty good. Chapter two, though?  My brain has stalled.  I’ve hit about 650 or so words and just kinda…nothing.  I know what needs to happen it’s just I don’t see it in my head…

#amediting

I am officially back in the editing chair! Having taken a few weeks away to write a few smaller things or just take a mental break, I have returned to take a final edit to my manuscript before I ship it off to begin queries.  This will take a good bit of time still, but…

I’ve Got a New Story…

I had been spending the past week or two looking into different writing contests. My book is still out to beta readers and I’m trying to keep up writing.  I figured a few smaller engagements in short stories may give me different things to pour myself into and maybe win some stuff along the way. …

The Rookie

“The Rookie” When I first came to, all I really could remember was that it was hard to breathe. My head was throbbing and I couldn’t see anything.  I opened my eyes but all I could make out was black.  I called out, “Hello?  Is anyone there?” but all that replied was silence. Ok, where…

The Tidal Wave

She walked along the beach and felt the sun beaming down. It was the perfect weather to be outside.  The air was warm but had a cool breeze that made the day feel refreshed with each wind.  She moved down the beach at a leisurely stroll, feeling the sand move between her toes.  Looking down…

And the Writing Continues!

Yesterday was a cool writing day for me. I finished a series of short stories that flow together into one for thefirstline.com and their publications for 2017.  I got everything submitted in hopes that it will be chosen.  I’m currently looking out for other literary magazines and other publications like that to keep me writing…

I Finished It!

It’s been a long and arduous process, and I know I’m not signed-sealed-delivered finished, BUT… The first revision of my book is now complete! Whooo-hoooo! Coming in at a little over 72,000 words is my first novel and I’m actually pretty happy with it. I can’t believe I’ve been pouring into this thing for about…
