I'm an expert procrastinator and although I've finished about a dozen novels, I've never set myself a schedule. However, I take my writing … Continue reading In Which She Attempts to Write Five Days A Week, No Matter What

Because We Are Awesome

Recently I've been reading some great, eye-opening pieces about women and our astounding contributions to society. Sometimes women and the great things they do have been acknowledged, sometimes not, but always, we have been here.

Kameron Hurley Gets Real With Writers

I read this piece today at Chuck Wendig's blog. It said what I believe about the writing business, but in a much more elegant way. There is, for example, a reason I called it a business.
