Writer Woe Number 428 (or something like that): Too Many Blasted Characters

First of all, I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to say that the sheer volume of characters in my novels is my own stupid fault. That I was a doofus and basically unleashed the population of a small movie theater (on a Harry Potter premier night) into my imagination and said, “Sure […]

Music as Author Muse

I’ve begun sharing my playlist with my husband. It was probably a mistake, because now he thinks I have a split personality based on my music choices. For kicks and giggles, I scrolled through my playlist for the past Undertow books and, well, yes – it appears I’m musically bi-polar. My musical preferences range wildly, but […]

Saying Farewell

Someone once said that, to say goodbye to a character that has been part of you for years, is like bidding farewell to a piece of you. As I write the last book in Eila’s story, I know it’s true. I have no doubt that when I’m done with the final book in the UNDERTOW […]

Why the agony of writing for teens is worth it

Writers can become burned out. I don’t mean the hyperventilating, “OMG I have no story ideas!” type of burn out. I mean the grind of the words, the constant push to out-write your last book, the stiff necks, the time crunches, and the piecemealing of a life outside of your characters’ worlds. You try to balance […]

Indie author life and other forms of torture

Last night I had an epiphany. One would think it would have been obvious to ME for a while now, but it wasn’t. You see, I am a self-published author, though I refer to myself as an “Indie” mainly because I operate like a business – like a small press. I am also a professional […]
