Ciao, amici! How was your week? If you read my Tuesday post, you know I had a release—one I wasn’t expecting and had to hurry to prepare for (The Scout). But that actually wasn’t my biggest accomplishment in the last seven days. That honor goes to Astral Conspiracy Series Book Two. (I’ll be revealing theContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! Happy Friday! I’m glad you’re here. I know it’s sometimes hard coming back to a full week of work after a holiday, and by day five, you’re exhausted. So thanks for sticking it out and visiting today. I got a lot done this week. New words written. Outlines completed. Documents edited. I admit,Continue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! Happy Independence Day! Yes, I’m a day late. But when you think about it, the holiday is kind of arbitrary. Independence was actually declared on July 2. Congress approved the Declaration of Independence on July 4. It wasn’t signed until August 2. So I figure anytime between July 2 and August 2 isContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici. I want to apologize in advance for the quote of the week. It’s not strictly writing-related. Today, the quote’s author is unknown. Which is too bad, as I’d like to thank him or her for the wise words: At the end of the day, all you need is hope and strength. Hope thatContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! I’ve been busy with rewrites and revisions this week, which (for me) is a combination of glee, stress, and oh-my-god-how-do-I-suck-this-much. I’ll admit to writing a few beautiful sentences, but I also have to admit to writing a few that simply made no sense. Maybe they would to Lewis Carroll readers (any fans ofContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! I’m super excited today. I wrote THE END on my rough draft of book 2 of the Astral Conspiracy series. I haven’t revealed the title or cover yet, so that’s all I can say about that. But I’m in revision-mode, making sure all the threads are properly woven, all the clues are droppedContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! The days are passing with dizzying speed. Makes me think of warp drives and worm holes (since I’m in sci-fi mode these days) but my series is decidedly grounded on our planet. Doesn’t mean I won’t take to the stars later, but as for now, no space operas. Just alien invasions. There’s aContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
Ciao, amici! Did you know this week was National Library Week? I’ve been celebrating with a post here and there on Facebook and Instagram. But I couldn’t let the week go by without mentioning it here, too. To that end, this week’s post isn’t about writing, but about libraries. There were a lot to chooseContinue reading “Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links”
I started this week with the best of intentions, then I was derailed almost immediately. But I’m determined to have a better week next week. It’ll be a busy one, for sure, yet I know it will be an improvement over this one. And I’m wishing you a good one, too.
Everything about this past week was insane. Site issues, blog schedule, writing goals, editing demands, family situations. So this quote by Terri Guillemets jumped out at me.
