I’m putting together what I typed up (all 47 handwritten pages) with what was already on the computer and trying to find a semblence of order. I know the meeting, know when they kiss and know the black moment. Oh and when they fall into bed #1 and probably #2 but its just putting it there that’s driving me bonkers right now. *sigh* Times like this I think my muse hates me. :o)Read More →

100 posts in only 6 months. Either I’m way too talkative or not talkative enough lol Either way, happy 100th to me!!Since its a bit of a milestone on the ol’ blog, I was hoping to have something cool to say, some news one way or the other…something well special.*scratches head*Well, I’m over 20K on Trouble aka as Vin and Ava’s story as the little counter thing on the side says.Still no word on the full, though I’m experiancing a new calm about anything and all things writing. Once I figure out paypal I’ll be signing up for Suzanne’s workshop next month (which I hopeRead More →

Someone turn the heat on!!!The weather here is absolutely unbelievable. It feels like October. Its freezing cold, its raining and I’m in fleece!!! This just isn’t right for August. Though it makes hockey seem closer than it did when it was warm and nearing 40 outside. *sigh* Writing though however seems to be going well. I looked at my handwritten chunk of Ava and Vin and there’s a good 30-40 pages there (I love gel pens! they inspire my muse!) all paper clipped together waiting for me to type them up. And I’m about to hit 10K on the stuff written straight from mind toRead More →

Well I hit the 16 week mark on Tuesday this week. Sorta have a peaceful feeling right now (though can’t promise that in 48 hours lol) so I guess maybe I’m closer to the end side of wait time than I am to the beginning — or so I hope *g* Weekend was slow and slightly relaxing. Barring a small argument with dad yesterday at Costco things were good. Even got a Miami Vice fix :o) And I am now officially a geek – I bought my Christmas cards already. But they were cute, they were on sale and I now have 40 cute cardsRead More →

QUOTABLE: With Doug Weight speaking highly of Edmonton to Chris Pronger, was there a chance Mike Peca was swayed by some words from Janne Niinimaa? “Well, I don’t speak Viking,” chuckled Peca. Someone remind me why the hell this guy gets 3.99 million and Ryan Smyth isn’t even friggin signed yet??Read More →

I know more about writing now than I did when I started. Which is probably true of most of the writers out there. I know about synopses, query letters, wait times, guidelines, 3 different ways to count word count, SASE’s, IRC’s, GMCs and how to properly research an agent. *lets out deep breath* Quite the list huh? *g* I still however have no clue how to beat the writer’s block that LOVES showing up at inopportune moments. I can’t stop my muse from torturing me by giving me bits and pieces of the entire story then leaving me to put the puzzle pieces together intoRead More →

Hi everyone, Asking a small bit of a favor. My best friend and good buddy’s entry in the Romance Junkies contest has just gone up.

Thanks! http://www.contestjunkies.com Look for – I Am His Wife: Annie With any luck I’ll be able to pick a version of HP’s first chapter I like and email it in this week.Read More →

My NHL rant of the day. Thoughts while watching the GM here make some of the weirdest deals I’ve ever seen. Mike Peca??????? Oh come on, there’s better players than that on the Islanders roster for under the $4 million mark… I’d have even accepted a deal for Jason Blake if you had to take someone who isn’t a D-man. But Peca? I thought years ago good ol’ GM boy decided we wanted size and that’s why we traded all the shorter guys… So then he goes gets a 6’6″ defenceman… Chris Pronger??? Oh he’ll look great next to Bergie on defense… *sighs* I’m losingRead More →
