Sharing Some Winter Cheer!

Inspiration comes from all kinds of places for me. There isn’t one single source that I can draw from. Seasonal things are inspirational too, like renewing things in spring, relaxing in the summer heat, or enjoying the beautiful colours of autumn. Winter cheer isn’t so different from Christmas cheer for me, but in the spirit of holiday equality, there are […]

New Logo!

I know I’m a long way off publishing and branding. But it doesn’t hurt to ponder these things as I work up to the whole marketing stuff. I keep dipping into my lapsed graphic design skills and thinking about the general look I want to go for. I’m still deciding, but I have a possible logo to share. It’s purely […]

More Inspiration?

Yes please.  I admit I get overloaded with inspiration. Just the other night I had an awesome dream that prompted a future novel. I didn’t spend too long on it because I didn’t want to distract myself from Out of Ashes. But Fae and Foe (working title) has been on my mind for a while now, and a full story […]

It really does.  But there are lots of us who have a wildly creative side to lose ourselves in when things get tough. Use this time to your advantage and throw every spare minute into your […]

Why Zombies and not Dinosaurs?

Many of you may know the joke about using the passive “by zombies”. Don’t know what the hell I’m talking about? Here…  Okay, you get the point. But why zombies? Why not werewolves or vampires or dinosaurs? Who knows? It’s still funny and can make for a fun game when editing your work with writing buddies. How many zombies can […]

Besties, Frenemies, or Nemeses?

I tried to make this writing-related, but honestly, it’s all about my new kitten. Imagine I’m talking about introducing two unpredictable characters or something. Introductions are always important.  Introducing Tinkerbell… I’ve had this little kitty for a couple of weeks now. She was desperately looking for a home after being found on the street. I estimate she was 4-5 weeks […]
