Anyone who has been a part of publishing knows the whole "hurry up and wait" thing that happens. Tight deadlines drop right before months of radio silence, and then all of a sudden it's back to "I need this yesterday." It's just a part of the way things work, and as much as you try … Continue reading Writing Wednesday — When it Rains
Writing Wednesday — Submit!
Last month I struggled with submitting my goal of "one thing a month" but I pulled it off at the last moment. This month, I've still not sent anything off yet, but there's a week left. Also?

Writing Wednesday — Suckuary

I'm so … Continue reading Writing Wednesday — When The Story Doesn’t Work

Writing Wednesday — Bury Your Trope
Gah. (I originally tried to say all this without spoilers, and I give up. Spoilers for Star Trek: Discovery.) So, last night, the husband and I were watching a television show we've really been enjoying. A significant part of really enjoying this show for us? A out, open queer couple who obviously love each other, … Continue reading Writing Wednesday — Bury Your Trope
