Why Storium Wins the Internet (And Possibly Life)

90 Day Writing Challenge – Week Two Summary

April 4, 2014

OK, so this week was more productive than last week, at least. I finished the formatting work on the book that was wearing on me—details like that completely derail me (I know it’s a bad habit, but hey, it’s what happens). I started with two big new clients this week, so writing was minimal, but […]

90 Day Writing Challenge – Week One Summary

March 28, 2014

I’ve decided I’m just going to summarize my weeks at the END of them, because…well…mostly because I didn’t get around to writing this until today, and it’s the end of the week, and…and…shut up, YOU DON’T KNOW MY LIFE.

My Writing Process Blog Tour: Ramblings of The Great and Terrible Evey

March 3, 2014

I have no excuse.  Cee Martinez made me do it. So apparently I’m supposed to tell you about my writing process.  I don’t know if anyone actually wants to read a cascade of ramblings about messy handwriting, but here we go. Behold.  MESS.  Or art.  Let’s call it art.  Also, apparently I have serial killer […]

“The Problem With Dreams” or, What Happens When I Get Nervous & Evernote Is Already Open on My Screen

February 25, 2014

The problem with dreams is that, at every single point along the journey, there is the option to turn back.  To cut and run.  To dart back to your old, safe, ultimately unfulfilling and dull, but gloriously familiar life.  It might be an extreme move, but it never actually stops being an option (at least, not for […]
