The resurrection of my blog: Prose & Musings

http://mstephens-musings.blogspot.com/ I've had this blog for a while but haven't done too much with it. After spending the past four months blogging on the 18 or so sites that I belong to, I decided I needed to revamp my blog to not only promote my writing, but to also have a place where I can showcase other authors.

I'd like to invite you to vist my blog and look forward to your comments!

My first book signing today and a few stories.

Now I know what to do when I want to have fun! :)

It hasn't rained in weeks--today it poured, yet the timing was perfect. It's student orientation week and every parent and student had to go to the bookstore and walk past my table which (bless the manager) was…

I'm so blocked I can't even blog

Nothing like getting stuck on the third chapter with 43 more to go. There's no time for my usual strategy either. Can't walk away from a first draft that's peppered with holes while a six-month deadline looms over my head.

Okay, here's the deal. A third body just washed to shore, I'm in the morgue, and the medical examiner swears he's found some evidence. I can't see it--I've tried but it's not there. Not yet anyway.

I'm too restless--distracted easily by the dumbest things. I…

Somewhere between the first novel I wrote (that I never finished because it was the first novel I wrote and I didn't know what the heck I was doing), and the initial writing of my Harper crime mystery series, I wrote several short stories and a few flash fictions. At the time my only purpose for writing them was to use them as a writing exercise to help me focus on developing the plot and to tighten my…
