So I hit 85K last night on Sabrina, at 2:oo a.m got a fragmented version of the opening scene (I think it could be good!) and finally figured out how to print the map of the palms. Woohoo. In other writing news, for those of us who follow agent blogs, Kristin Nelson’s decided to blog.http://pubrants.blogspot.com/ And speaking of blogs, I signed up for ehar’s 100 book challenge this year. If your interested in seeing what’s all in the tbr pile and what’s already been done, go by book buzz and check out the drop down menu. Its under Lissy :o) Guess that’s about all forRead More →

So this has been on my mind for awhile. And when is it not a good time for writerly babble? Especially on a writer’s blog :o)Anyways, in working chat this afternoon I had a thought. Why is it so hard for us writers to go in and revise, cut out and edit our stuff? I’m having a huge time of it with Sabrina and its opening. I still don’t quite know where the story’s gonna pick up, whether at that point she knows of her gift yet or not…but every bit that’s there its hard to look at and go this just doesn’t work. Why?Read More →

Crazyville is where it feels like I am right now. I spent 10 hours yesterday watching the Barrett-Jackson auction on speed for research for the next story idea. I’ve got about 2 pages of notes. Narrowed my car of choice down to the Shelby and the Corvettes though I don’t mind a nice Austin Healy either…and I’m still no further along on Sabrina. Its that old feeling of I’m rewriting the same old scene over and over again and nothing is moving this baby forward. Which isn’t good when I’ve got that query itch waiting to be scratched. Not too mention that would require aRead More →

Since Nell picked me for this, that means my rambling post about men and what good are they will have to be postponed (listening for cheers and whistles) Seven things to do before I die.1. Sell a book & see it published2. Travel outside of Alberta/Sask3. Have my own place4. Vegas5. Have a real convo with biker boy6. Go to a Wrestlemania7. Meet Shawn Michaels Seven things that attracted me to my loser crush (who I may not be good enough for if I translate his friend’s actions/words correctly)1. His eyes (quite noticeable when he stared for 4.5 years thank you very much)2. His smile.3.Read More →

Remember this?A quick plea to the hockey gods before hitting post, if the Isles do make a trade, please oh please, west coast team, west coast team :o)Well it seemed to work!! hehe Welcome to the Dallas Stars!!!!Read More →

I’m not sure if its the weather, the mid book slump or what, but I’m definitely in the throes of a writerly blah day. (Let’s not blame this on that pesky insomnia! On the good side of that though, I did finish off 2 books and start a regency which I’m really enjoying) Sabrina isn’t exactly interesting me at this moment. Two a.m brought some new thoughts, which just may work. Though I need to email someone *eeks* and hope she’s kind enough to answer a few research questions for me. Crossing my fingers on that one. I still have 50 some odd pages thatRead More →

2006: A Yearly LookCapricorn: You first since it is your birthday month. Caps have the publishing planet (Jupiter) in their House of Dreams and Wishes . The Big Sale, Acquisition, or Merger is more likely in ’06 than in any year in the last 10. I’ve seen true miracles ( pinnacles at least) happen with this house position, so expect the best outcome in all your ventures. Congratulations in advance.Read More →

Quick update, just hit 70K on Sabrina. Apparently those pages in the binder were WAY more than I thought, taking me to 68 this afternoon. I’ll push through to the wknd, hope to hit 80 then print it out and as Nell said, do adits. I know there’s a few rather gaping, glaring plot holes (uhm opening anyone? Black moment? Possible ending? lol) but maybe reading through it start to finish will help. In other news, nothing much else. Still no word on the two agent partials. Wondering if the one to NYC ever did get delivered. A little nervous to email and ask forRead More →

*blows noisemaker* So Happy Birthday to me.As usual, it had more low points then high points. Why is that?*sigh*Let’s see, the high points were that some of my Xmas gifts arrived from friends. It was a WWE day for a fan like me to be quite happy with. Got the HBK Shawn Michaels book, Cena wristband and EG armband from one of my good friends in the states. And another sent me a complete surprise, another WWE book. So wasn’t expecting that. And to top it off, miracle of miracle, the world junior tournament didn’t go long and stretch into Raw so I was ableRead More →
