November Collection

I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted anything. I threw in the towel on NaNoWriMo again. I've been sick for a week and it sort of took the wind out of my sails. I'm about 10,000 words into a new thing, my first attempt at a YA novel. But fear not, … Continue reading November Collection

Say When

So, I quietly did Camp NaNoWriMo in April. I thought maybe without the fanfare of announcing I was doing it and worrying about write-ins and taking part in the community (although all those things are great, and a wonderful part of the experience of NaNoWriMo) I would be more focused on the writing and less … Continue reading Say When

Survival Mode

So here we are, the last week of November, with that-holiday-that-shall-not-be-named right around the corner. Here comes the panic, and the racing around, and the fretting over money we can't really afford to spend, and 'To-Do' lists growing exponentially even though time is speeding up. Yeah, I really look forward to the holidays. I gave … Continue reading Survival Mode

Weekly Card – Queen of Wands

So this week I had to go with the All Hallows Tarot by Robyn Tisch Hollister. And we have the Queen of Wands. Wands are associated with the element of Fire, and creativity. All Queens are associated with Water, so we have Water (emotion) of Fire (passion, creativity, energy). Competent, strong-willed women who do what … Continue reading Weekly Card – Queen of Wands

Weekly Card – Six of Pentacles

And we follow up last week's Four of Coins with the Six of Coins (Pentacles) from the Fenestra Tarot.This suit is associated with Earth, earthly concerns, money, practical matters. Literally earthy things like gardening as well. We've progressed from the stability of the four through the tempestuousness of the five to the victory of the … Continue reading Weekly Card – Six of Pentacles

Hi Diddle-dee-dee, the NaNo Life for Me

Call me crazy, but I'm going to sign up for NaNoWriMo again this year. Why, you ask? Because I need to get back in the groove of writing every day. Yes, I know, I can hear you saying "What about all that whining about no time to write?" Nothing has changed on that front, I … Continue reading Hi Diddle-dee-dee, the NaNo Life for Me

I’m Making Myself Crazy(er)

Ever since someone tweeted out a link to a doll house furnished as a haunted/witch's house, I have been obsessed with the idea of doing a similar one, but even moreso with the idea of putting together one furnished like the home of Andrej and Anne-Marie. Fueling my addiction has been EBay where I found … Continue reading I’m Making Myself Crazy(er)

Meet Rowena

I was trolling on EBay this morning, and BAZINGA! This is the spitting image of one of the new vampire characters in my NaNo novel, right down to the shade of lipstick. Even the hairstyle is almost exactly as I envisioned her.  Ok, it's a little creepy, being wrapped in plastic like this, but what … Continue reading Meet Rowena

Falling (hopefully not Failing) Behind

I have seriously run off the rails in my NaNoWriMo novel. I'm down by two days now, and my only hope is to be able to carve some huge blocks of quality writing time of the weekend. This is so not good. I briefly toyed with the idea of posting some of it here just … Continue reading Falling (hopefully not Failing) Behind
