Remakes Blogfest

So the point of this blogfest, as conceived of by Alex J. Cavanaugh and Heather M. Gardner, is to blog about a favorite remake. This means movie, song, whatever. Is there any time a remake is as good as—maybe even better?—than the original? Of course, that’s a matter of opinion. So FWIW, here’s mine. My…

All Hallows Write

The Rules: #1 – Provide a BRIEF description of your novel before starting. #2 – Don’t use the same character for more than 3 answers.

Déjà Vu Blogfest

It’s my solar return today, so I’m out doing fun things like seeing Rogue One and having my annual tarot reading.

Insecure Writers Support Group

I’ve never done one of these. I don’t know if I’m supposed to officially sign up somewhere or what. But I feel like it’s fair for me, as a writer, to voice things that make me anxious or nervous about my work. Like choosing the next project. I get emails from readers every now and…

Spectacular Settings

The above is one of my favorite photos. It’s pretty mundane, I suppose, but it’s the wallpaper on my iPhone. I love London, and I was just walking down this street one day with the idea of going on the Eye, and couldn’t stop myself snapping this shot. Today I’m participating in the WEP Challenge…
