Changing the Focus of My Blog

Hi everyone!! *waves frantically* It has been 2 months since I last posted--can you believe it? It doesn't actually feel that long, and I won't lie: it has been great for my creative self to not have to worry about blogging. Because, here's the thing, guys: I've run...

Detox December (and Rejuvenation January)

First Readers, Revising, & Publication

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who not only won NaNoWriMo but who made ANY progress this month. I finished with 32,000 new words, and I'm really proud of that progress! New words are always better than no words at all. 😉 To wrap up NaNoWriMo and to help all of you forge...

A Writer’s Basic Toolbox

As promised in the last issue of the Misfits & Daydreamers, I'll share links to past posts each Monday throughout NaNoWriMo. Why no new content? Well, I did a survey a few weeks ago, and of the 100 amazing people who responded, I'd say ~90% asked for content I've...

The Writing Is All That Really Matters

I get a lot of emails (and tweets, tumblr asks, facebook messages, etc.) asking me about my process--and that's great! I love sharing what I do, and I love hearing about what YOU do. But the thing is, no matter what my process is (or her process...or his process), at...
