Making (and Keeping) a Writing Schedule

I know people with full-time jobs, small children, and busy social lives who still find time to write. Frankly, I don't know how they do it, although at one time so did I. Now I'm retired, so theoretically I have time to write. You know what they say, "In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is."

In my head (the theory part) I will write or edit or polish so many pages a day. I try to write between 8:00 and 11:00 am, then take a walk,… Continue

I get emails from writers every week asking questions, or advice or just for the benefit of my experience. I always send a thoughtful reply and whether or not it’s helpful it’s always sincere. I try to make whatever I know available to anyone who wants it.

I’ve been ask why I give it away in emails, at seminars and at conferences. Well, it feeds my ego of course, but there’s more to it than that. I figure it’s payback, or maybe pay forward, for all the people who gave me advice and… Continue

Author Update

I’m the victim of my own success in an unexpected way. After four successful book signings at Books-A-Million stores their supply chain is so back-ordered for my novels that the next four of their stores have had to cancel my book-signings. Luckily Borders hasn’t had this problem, so I was able to greet my old friends at the Borders Express in Dulles Town Center Mall this afternoon. It’s always a good time and fans who bought one of my books keep returning to pick up another.

And it… Continue

Ten Reasons Why She Dumped Him

My mood went sour and surly this week. Maybe it’s because we’re officially entering the Dog Days of August. Or maybe it’s because several of my friends find themselves stuck in an endless down-cycle, a death spiral that is also known as Breaking Up a Long-term Relationship. Whatever the reason, thoughts about the end-game of love have been kicking up divots in my head lately.

Those Who Prey on Authors

I present workshops for those who'd like to publish, and I'm constantly surprised at both the naivete of writers and the gall of scammers. Here are a few things I would avoid as a pre-published author:

An agent who charges a fee. There are LOTS of agents around, and the good ones don't charge except (maybe) for mailing. My experience with this was tough to take. I was so excited when an agent wrote and said she loved my characters and thought I had real promise. Then at the bottom of… Continue

Toto, we're in Kansas

We’ve arrived. After weeks of living out of a suitcase and bedding down in five different places, we’re ready to move into our new home next week. I can’t wait. I never thought I’d hear myself say this, but I’m sick of eating out. I’m actually craving healthy food and that’s almost disturbing. Also, I gained five pounds (I had an official weigh-in of sorts this week), which really isn’t that bad considering my diet the last few weeks.

Thus far, I like Kansas. Yes, you’ve read that… Continue
