Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, amici! How was your week? I'm sorry to say mine was less than productive. I seem to have hit that mid-winter wall where doing anything requiring more effort than pouring a cup of coffee doesn't seem worth it. In fact, there are days I even wonder whether I should make coffee. Shocking, right? Never... Continue Reading →

Ciao, amici! I'm a day late, but Happy Valentine's Day. I've said it before and I'll (probably) say it again, but this isn't a huge deal in my house.

Ciao, amici! It's that time again. A quick wrap-up of the week, and a little discussion about writing. Hopefully you'll join in at the end. This week was a hodgepodge for me. I wrote, I revised, I edited. I read and wrote reviews. I created graphics. I even tried a different tactic to get AMS ads... Continue Reading →

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, amici! As I write this, I'm waiting for my coffee to finish brewing. That means I'm once again in need of caffeine. But as I wait, I want to share a bit about my writing week. I think I mentioned that I'm currently writing a sci-fi series. If I didn't, sorry. Now you know. (They... Continue Reading →

Caffeine… A Writer’s Necessity

Ciao, amici. This isn't my usual post (or type of post), but I have a crippling amount of work to do, so I'm procrastinating. I wouldn't be if I wasn't so tired. But I'm caffeine deprived. See, when I was at the store on Sunday, I found chocolate-covered coffee beans. They're my favorite guilty pleasure because... Continue Reading →
