‘Pass’ion

Passion is something that we all want in our lives. The word passion makes me think of thrilling and exhilarating things, like rollercoasters (I’m addicted and would ride them over and over if they’d let me) and first kisses. Passion isn’t bad, but it’s proven to be fleeting.  So, why would I want passion if it doesn’t last forever? When we have passion for something or someone it compels us to...

What will you do (or not do) in 2016?

The new year is here and no matter how hard we try we can’t go back. I’m resolved to step away from Netflix and its holiday haze, and plan to step into a year of action: creative, physical, and spiritual action! Some of us *points finger at self* have set lofty goals for 2016. I do it every year and subconsciously make the same mistakes. Whether it’s the number of words I plan to write or the number of novels...

That’s A Wrap

I’m currently wrapping up my day and ending my week. It also happens to be the last month of the year. Yet as everything is coming to a close, I’m not ready to tie a shiny bow on any of my projects. The fact is I’m in the middle of two manuscripts, the Christmas shopping isn’t finished, and there are always papers to grade and laundry to be washed and folded. If I tried to wrap up anything in my life right now...

Missing It

As an imperfect human, I miss things. I miss things epically! I whiff a basketball shot, avoid the jerk cutting me off in traffic, misunderstand a conversation, forget an appointment… Missing is a part of life. If only missing were a sport, I’d be a gold medalist in the Mislympics! Over time, I’ve learned that missing isn’t all bad. There have been times I’ve missed a phone call or someone’s meaning...

Character Confrontations

We all have our own way of dealing with confrontation… Or not dealing with it. Figuring out what your characters would do, say, gesture, or yell during a confrontation can tell you a lot about them. So, this post is devoted to providing a few writing prompts that will stretch and grow your character. I’ll be adding a new prompt each...

“Presents”

I enjoy Christmas, and everything that comes with it; goodwill, cooler weather, hot chocolate, carols, and family. The presents are a bonus. During the span of my lifetime, I’ve observed our culture (and been guilty of) glorifying the presents more and more. It amazes me how that growing desire to have the next best thing correlates with our increasing craving for a presence in this world. I want to buy my loved ones the gift...
