I can see the floor

I came home last night to a packingboxless house. This morning, in the light of day, I can see the floor. The end of chaos is near. Which is good, I still have to re-write my ending for ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’ today, because I have to send it out to people either tonight or […]

out with the old…

I escaped today… escaped my house, escaped the pending move, escaped reality.


Today is/was back to back editing. I still have more to go. I think I’ll hole up in my bedroom with my laptop for the evening to give myself a chance to get some work done. My brother, I’ve discovered (and probably mentioned several times already) becomes increasingly more distracting the more he tries not to be disctacting.

Back in the Game

Things are beginning to look up. No, wait… let me edit that… things ARE looking up. The chaos from the past few weeks is over and my brain is on the mend. It takes a lot to stress me out and recovery time varies. I’m happy to say I’m back.

Freelance Camp and Life in General

No matter how much I say I have to blog today, time gets away from me and I lie down on my nice, soft, comfy bed and say, “Damn, another day passes without a blog.”

As my World Turns

I need to write. I’ve been spending my days editing, developing seminars and presentations, being a calming influence on a hyperly-stressed, about-to-move-back-across-the-country, little brother and gardening, but no writing.

A week of awesome with a side of amazing

This week has been full of stress, anxiety, hope, physical exhaustion, concussion quality boo-boos, dreaded early mornings, taxing late nights… and it’s been wonderful.

Looking for a House-Mate

Well, it’s official. My brother and sharer of the house has been offered a job back East. So now I have a choice of existing on rice and beans or get a house-mate. I think I’ll go for the house-mate 🙂

Just when you thought it was over

I sent the last few chapters of my novel to my proofreaders. Just as I was snuggling into my bed that night, the realization hit me – after all my stressing, I’d given my novel a ‘rocks fall and everyone dies’ sort of ending.

It is finished

I resisted typing the words “The End” but barely. I’ve finished the last section of my new novel, ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’, to be reviewed in a line-by-line edit by my absolutely amazing proofreaders – and no that’s not a suck up because they seriously rock. I’m really lucky to have them.
