So You Want To Be A Writer?

Over the last few years, I posted a fair bit about the writing life on my other blog. Since this is now my primary blog, I thought some of those posts might fit here on Wednesdays, when we discuss writing. I hope they’ll be helpful to you wherever you are on your journey. November 2010.…

The Language of Flowers

  The Language of Flowers was one of those books I heard a lot about after it was released, but put it on my ever-growing TBR pile. A couple of weeks ago I finally got around to reading it. You know sometimes you long for a story that reaches deep into your soul, wakes something…

What's On Your List?

I love to write. It’s time-consuming and all-encompassing. I also love to read, but find I need to be pretty picky when it comes to what I read. Back to that time issue. As in, I don’t want to waste mine. I have several writing projects on my list already for 2012, but I’d love…
