Write Tunes – New Eyes

I'm going on a much needed mini-vacation this weekend! Headed to Atlanta for Dragon Con! As a result, my whole work week has been squished into 4 days so I haven't had a whole lot of time to write or even think about writing. Which sucks, but it's a necessary sacrifice for some peace of… Continue reading Write Tunes – New Eyes

Write Tunes – My Love

I'm in a bind, trying to figure out how much research is necessary to make things believable. But also, how to balance how much research is explicitly used before it becomes too much and draws attention away from what really matters. That's my chief problem. Well right now anyway. In magical realism, there's a political… Continue reading Write Tunes – My Love

A Game of Choices

At first, I was going to make this into a dream poem but I wanted to be more explicit in the description of this particular dream. What's a Choice? I dreamt a dream I shouldn't remember. A clever dream, really. A dream more easily forgotten than the next, yet remembered. If only slightly. In another… Continue reading A Game of Choices

Write Tunes – broken record

Let's talk about quotes! I hate quotes, and no I'm not referring to the punctuation mark or general dialogue/conversation. No, I mean I hate quotes of something someone famous said before in fiction. Out of obligation, yeah, I'll do it. I'll do it when it's necessary. But most of time, I feel like using a… Continue reading Write Tunes – broken record

Write Tunes – Shuffle

It's been a weird week. I'm making a lot of headway, but I guess I wanted to quickly talk about trusting the reader. For example, my protagonist is more focused on other things and doesn't pay a lot of attention to mundanity. In this situation, I don't feel like this needs to be stated. It's… Continue reading Write Tunes – Shuffle

Write Tunes – Sunday Best

First day back at the library. Sorely needed. Didn't have much time to write but it was still like a breath of fresh air. It felt good to be back at it in a peaceful environment. And I'll definitely be re-incorporating it back into my schedule when time allows. I've slowed myself down a lot… Continue reading Write Tunes – Sunday Best

Learning and Stuff

Just wanted to say today that I think I'm finally out of my rut. I think I can finally get back to work for real this time, especially since the the kiddos are all back in school and now the library won't be an ironically loud mess. That was part of the problem, but certainly… Continue reading Learning and Stuff

Write Tunes – Glass

It's been getting harder and harder to write lately. Can't place why exactly. It's like if I can just get started that I can write pages and pages, but getting started is so difficult now. I don't think forcing it is a healthy practice but I think it's the only way to get through it… Continue reading Write Tunes – Glass
