Yesterday I mentally prepared for today. I could hardly wait until 12:01 AM so I could get started on my NaNoWriMo project. But leading up to midnight I watched two movies: Georgia Rules and Catch and Release. Not bad. At 12:01, I started typing. Two false starts that left me cold. (No, I didn't delete them but I did highlight them in yellow.) I put on my own copy of Must Love Dogs, and started writing again. Finally I found a beginning that satisfied me. My strength is dialogue. Once I put…Continue

I can't speak for the rest of the country, but many of us on the East Coast have been shuffling around for the past week as if in a trance. We're Red Sox Nation and we've been through division championships, league championships and finally the World Series.
Of course we're glad that The Olde Home Team won the big trophy. Personally, and I note here that I've been a Sox fan for ...let's just say decades and leave it at that, I was suprised that the Series only…Continue

I've been doing "Mystery Talks" at libraries over the last few months as a way of letting librarians and patrons get to know me, and I have to admit it's more fun than work. After thirty years in the classroom, it's great to have audiences that actually want to hear what I have to say, and of course talking about mysteries will never bore a fanatic like me.
I feel a little guilty sometimes recommending Author A over Author B, because we all know that tastes vary, and Author B wouldn't…Continue

If you've got a few moments, check out my RSS feed from my group blog at http://acmeauthorslink.blogspot.com, found in the bottom left column
It's about the Friends of the Library sale from last Friday. Some of you may have been there, done that.
Also, if you feel inclined, send me out a friend request. I'm over my limit of 100 and it will take forever to erase the almost 2000 I sent out.

At 12:01 tonight (or in the morning) I'll write the first few words (pages?) of my new project. Why do I commit to such as this? Fast writing. I usually feel like a failure when I quit producing. November isn't a real good month for daily writing. Daughter comes home from NOBTS and all I want to do is play with her. We visit family in Texas for Thanksgiving. We'll also be moving out of our apartment in Houston and trying to find room to store furniture…Continue
