I wonder how many people are like me who love to write but often do not mention in real life to actual people. When it is mentioned, by someone else, I feel rather flustered. It reminds me a great deal of my University experience. I have a sturdy IQ of 140. I achieved high grades…… Continue reading The self-conscious writer
The Daily Routines of Famous Writers “A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.”
I have run out of books to read in my stack which means I am planning to go book shopping next weekend. We do not have a bookstore in the city I live in. Shocking I know. Horrific actually. So we have to travel to the closet city to us which is actually quite close.…… Continue reading Kindle feeds that book addiction…
Write about the shape of memories? I imagine some people think memories are crisp squares like windows into the past. The peer into them and there is this view they have. Crystalline. I am not so easily fooled. I know the games the brain plays on us all. More so someone like me with a…… Continue reading Write about the shape of memories prompt
When I was 12 I wanted to become a writer. I dreamt of living in the mountains and meeting my undeniable soul mate. I thought I would have no children. I never imagined physical pain would fill up so much of the gaps in my life or that children were not even a possibility. I…… Continue reading When you were 12 writing prompt
No, because some just don’t work out. That is not to say that some novels do not get re-worked quite some time later when I get a different take on them. Or stay on the back burner for a bit until I want to really get a feel for them again. Not every work is…… Continue reading Do you always finish your novels?
I need to go book shopping. Soon. Like now. That is all.
I have a thought about some of my early ebooks on works I did years ago. I wonder if they are edited as carefully as I might want. I wonder if they are worth keeping up. If I could have a good unbiased reader to check out one of the books for me and give…… Continue reading Readers
'Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.' Carl Jung
A level of coolness I will never attain if I keep tripping over my own feet.
I should mention I write fiction under a pen name. So if you follow me under Google+ that would be under my given name as that seems to be the one social media I have that blends everything together at this point. I have no particular reason at this point to write under a pen…… Continue reading Pen name
I don’t go about killing characters willy nilly. You shall die! I smite you! No, there are very valid reasons for killing characters. It legitimately fits with the plot line. And an injury would simply not work as well for the impact it will have on the main character. Clearly if it impacts my main…… Continue reading Killing a character
What book have you read more than once and would read again? If you are like me whenever you run out of books you know you have plenty others you can read again. I have some I have read many times over like Great book of Amber which has the entire Chronicles of Amber…… Continue reading What book have you read more than once and would read again?

I am currently listing to my playlist called ‘the 80’s’. A fun playlist which always amuses me because while in the 80’s I rather loathed the music but now it makes me all nostalgic. A sign of getting old I’m sure. Or nuts. Or both likely. A total eclipse of the heart. I wonder what…… Continue reading Music and writing
That is an interesting question. I suppose the answer is that my favorite authors take too long to write so I go book hunting. I love going into a book store and browsing for something new and interesting, which is a good thing given how much I read. I don’t care if it is an…… Continue reading What draws you to pick up a book you’ve never seen or heard of before?
I love my kindle. I also love real books. Love their smell, especially if they are from the library. Love the feel of them in my hands. Love how I can easily be transported into the story world. But I’ve purchased more ebooks this year than real books. Borrowed more ebooks from the library than real…
