My First Writing Conference In Review

Well, Las Vegas is in my rearview mirror and along with it the 2016 Las Vegas Writer’s Conference. I had a great time, and I am very glad that I went through with it. I am particularly glad that I got to meet, pitch, and learn from real-life literary agents. I am at that point in my writing career where… Read more »

Hello!

      No Comments on Hello!

Today is my BIRTHDAY! Huzzah! I know lots of adults think birthdays are meh, but I love them. A whole day dedicated to me and no one else. Well, everyone else who shares my birthday and (some years) Labor Day and lots of other things. But it’s fun to be queen for a day, and I enjoy celebrating milestones like… Read more »

#FlashFridayFootage: “The Walls Will Fall”

Happy Friday!! Thanks to the magic of modern technology, I am not actually sitting on my bedroom floor at this exact moment (I should be getting my makeup done and hanging around getting ready for one of my bestie’s wedding!), but I am still celebrating the #FlashFridayFootage vibe with all of you lovely folks. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!

#FlashFridayFootage: “Virgin Magic”

Hello! After a little break last weekend for the U.S. holiday (fireworks galore!), #FlashFridayFootage is back this week with one of the tougher flash stories I’ve written.

Let’s celebrate by watching videos on our breaks and fantasizing about all the ice cream we’re going to eat. The pinnacle of a good weekend’s plans, IMO. In any case,… Read more »

Huzzah, Friday again! An extra special Friday for me, since I am taking a half day from the day job and heading out to Denver for a friend’s bachelorette party. It should be a Very Good Time and I am quite excited. But first–how could I kick off a good weekend without a little #FlashFridayFootage? Yep, it feels so good… Read more »

#FlashFridayFootage: “The Light at Night”

Yes, you read that title right. After a tiny hiatus, #FlashFridayFootage is making its victorious 2015 comeback! Every Friday, except for the last of the month, will feature a brand new video with a brand new reading of a brand new story. Exciting stuff! To be honest, one of the delays in bringing back #FlashFridayFootage was that I don’t think anyone… Read more »

Life-Cycle of a Nora Novel

      2 Comments on Life-Cycle of a Nora Novel

Okay, maybe a Nora novel isn’t an officially recognized category—yet! In any case, I have a pretty methodical way that I go about writing a novel, refined over several manuscripts. So I thought I would share that method in case it is helpful and/or interesting for anyone else! The video describes it pretty well, but I thought I would also… Read more »
