A Year Since…

It’s hard to believe it’s been an entire year since I completed All Falling Things, but Facebook reminded me of how I had posted this picture when I finished. Life looks a lot different today than when I typed those two little words. For one, we’ve been in quarantine for almost ten months due toContinue reading “A Year Since…”

What’s in a Name?

This post contains spoilers for All Falling Things. Though most of the characters in this book are connected by name only to AIW (mostly the secondary characters), there are a couple who are based more around characteristics. Because of this, I had a little more room to play with their names. I really like findingContinue reading “What’s in a Name?”

When a Life Dream Comes to Fruition. Maybe.

I’m a bit numb. You’d think after a few days, this feeling would wear off – but no. I’m still having trouble sleeping because I can’t turn my brain off. Last week Thursday, I went into my gmail, like I do a couple times a week. Only this time, there was an email from aContinue reading “When a Life Dream Comes to Fruition. Maybe.”

Casting Part Three

The further into this story I get, the deeper I have to dig into the world of Alice in Wonderland to find ways to connect each character to Lewis Carroll’s story/concept. This one might be a little bit of a stretch, but I’m going with it – because the character’s physicality is based entirely onContinue reading “Casting Part Three”

Long Distance Feedback

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m part of an online writing group that does writing swaps/positivity passes. Though I know this is an international group, it didn’t really sink in until I got my latest piece of feedback from our swap: Y’all, someone in GERMANY has not only read but liked my writing. I’mContinue reading “Long Distance Feedback”

Another Beta Reader Returns

Originally, when Ann and Amy were done reading through my WIP, I intended to take them for a nice dinner as a thank you. COVID has, of course, changed that plan. I felt bad that Amy opted to mail me my manuscript back (she lives in IL) because I figured it would be expensive –Continue reading “Another Beta Reader Returns”

Positivity Passes

I’m part of an online writing community that is actually attached to an online fitness program I’m a part of. (Writer friends come into your life in the most unexpected of places, don’t they?) The admin for this group is also participating in #RevPit and offered the idea of a Positivity Pass to our groupContinue reading “Positivity Passes”

#RevPit Novel Aesthetic

One of the fun things about #RevPit are the mini games they play throughout the month. The one today is at the request of Jeni Chappelle, one of the editors – the novel aesthetic. This is simply a collage of pictures that represent your novel. It sounded like a fun exercise, and I am aContinue reading “#RevPit Novel Aesthetic”

#DVPit

#DVPit is a “Twitter event created to showcase pitches from marginalized voices that have been historically underrepresented in publishing” (The DV stands for Diverse Voices). It was brought to my attention through my participation in #RevPit, mentioned in a previous post. I had no clue things like this existed, though I’ve been on Twitter (underContinue reading “#DVPit”
