Writer’s Quote Wednesday

  The first draft is just you telling yourself the story. Ha! I love this Terry Pratchett quote. Not only is it a freeing thought but it's actually quite true in its astute observation if only we would just listen and apply! Writer's tend to have overly active imaginations when you add that to the... Continue Reading →

Required Reading

So a little while ago I was reading some Batman. In particular the graphic novels Hush and The Man Who Laughs. Which sparked an idea, which sparked some musings, which led to discussion that ended up in a story. It was one of those times that I was in between projects and feeling adrift, things...

Writer’s Quote Wednesday

Now here's a good one that goes with the whole "convention panics" rants and raving tangents I've been going off on lately (See here and here). Because it can often get a bit overwhelming when one is hit with the idea that they are doing something, giving so much of themselves and there time but... Continue Reading →

Convention and the Creative Writer

You could say it's a family trait, but really it has been etched upon what little history is known to me of my family tree. My mother suffers... Continue Reading →

Writer’s Quote Wednesday

I feel quite the kinship with this quote of Susan Sontag. I've always been called the watcher by my family, the one who seems to have this eerie ability to "see" and know all. There were times I found it a curse. It can be hard being naturally attentive to detail and the subtleties of... Continue Reading →

Something To “Crow” About

  The other day I went walking into my room and there it was seeming to fly straight at me, straight into my very vision: a big black crow with wings expanded gliding forward as if to catch its prey in readied talons. It was, after all just flying onto the upper gutter of roof,... Continue Reading →

Tasted Depths

So today I got my first ever creative challenge prompt from Creative Cafe (Just started following them on Medium and you can too here!) The theme being Tasted, inspired by the quote: "He tasted her mind and realized he was starving." I'm eager to join, or at least participate in my own capacity. Today hasn't... Continue Reading →
