This Week In Favs……….

10) “Critiquely Interview with The Rejectionist” from Mary Baader Kaley on Mary Baader Kaley (is) Not an Editor. Aahh…. an interview with one of my favorite blogs to follow: The Rejectionist. This is one interview that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It was refreshing, open, honest, and gave me the warm tingles. My hope it that you enjoy this interview as well. And…… Here’s a little treat from The Rejectionist’s website that I found this week – A Harry Potter themed […]

Finding the Balance

Like a lot of people, I’ve been struggling with balance in my life for quite a while now…balance between my work life, my writing life, my reading life, my blogging life (which is still new to me), and my personal life. I’ve got so much going on, that I’ve lovingly referred to my life (as I know it) as chaotic. Fellow blogger, Lisa Gail Green, actually posted an article, Balancing Act, that has stuck a chord with me since the […]

Song of the Week: Hero by Skillet

  The ‘Song of the Week’ posts are moving to Mondays!! What better way to start off the week than with a rockin’ or thought-provoking tune, eh? Music and writing go hand in hand. Soooooo, it’s needless to say that when you discover the perfect song for a scene, or for the entire MS, you never tire of it. Case in point: this week’s song was on loop for about 4 hours on Sunday during edits (another 4 chapters, I […]

This Week In Favs……….

10) “The Big Post of Querying” by Kat Zhang on The Katacomb.. This particular post was in response to a question posed to Kat in regards to how she went about querying – which is a daunting task that I think all aspiring authors tend to get the heebe-jeebes about (I know I do). I love Kat’s honesty in her postings. It’s incredibly refreshing and it’s encouraging to hear that within two months of querying, she found herself an agent. […]

This Week In Favs……….

I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th! I know I did ‘cause I got some major editing done…just in time for the fireworks too! It’s been such a busy and exciting week in the blogosphere that I had a hard time choosing what was going to make the list, but here it is! 10) “Half Over?” by Katie on KT’s Korner. Kudos to Katie for putting her 2011 goals out there for the world to see! This got […]

Song of the Week: Butterflies and Hurricanes by Muse

The theme for this week’s song is: “What’s it to ya?” Personally, this particular song holds many meanings, and not just for me. Each one of the characters in my MS had a moment, whether in their ‘’behind the scenes’ backstories or in the middle of the page that called for this song to played in the background. The personal meanings to them? “Time to take a chance!” “Now’s your moment!” “Change it. Change everything about you. You’re no longer […]

This Week In Favs……….

  Welcome, welcome! This is entry #2 for ‘This Week in Favs…’ It was a bit of a slow week for me, but I do have a few goodies: contests, another So You Think You Can Dance clip (an oldie but a goodie), and a great critique post I discovered this week! 10) I found another blog to follow this week: The Character Therapist. Jeannie, aka The Therapist, is a licensed marriage and family therapist and….a writer! As I perused […]
