Happy New Year!!!

By Hubby To the tune of Auld Lang Syne  Should old attempts at writing books be forgot or brought to mind Should old attempts at writing books be forgot or brought to mind Forgot I’m thinking my young dear Forgot and do not mind Forgot I’m thinking do not fear Forgot and do not mind   The year is new and hope is fresh, should I plot or maybe write The year is new and hope is fresh, should I plot or maybe write Do plot I’m thinking my young dear Do plot and be forthright Do plot a book of… Read more »

Merry Christmas!

Hubby wrote a poem, sing to the tune of Jingle Bells!   Oh, and we managed to get a picture of Santa’s littlest helper! Getting published is a goal. Like a hard working little mole We type and write and theme and scheme And with much pride we beam A complete work to submit Got read by a half-wit Not accepted we throw a fit  New York doesn’t know shit, OH!   Writer spells, writer spells Working all the day Plots that thicken, nothing like Dickens We don’t care anyway, Oh!   Writer spells, writer spells Working all the day Plots that thicken,… Read more »

‘Twas the Monday Before Christmas

And all through the house, not a keyboard was stirring, not even the mouse… Okay that was lame, I’m actually burning up the keyboard.  My rewrites are going well.  They are labor intensive and as I read what I originally wrote, I wonder why my editor puts up with me.  I know I drive her crazy.  But, I wanted to take today and say Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings, and Happy Holidays to everyone!  It’s been a crazy year, but we’re all still standing! I’m going to take the rest of the year off here at The Write Life.  I have… Read more »

Why/Why Not?

Good Morning!   Sorry for the late post, I was up late writing last night. So I’m posting two first pages today. Here’s the first one:      Jolie Burke stepped onto the outdoor walkway of the Regal 8 Motel on her way to get ice. And stopped cold.      At the end of the walkway, near the ice machine’s lighted alcove, stood a figure.       A man or a woman?      Impossible to tell. Flip a coin. Woman.       Maybe.      The woman wore shades—unusual for the outside of a Regal 8 in the middle of the night.  She wore dark slacks, and a suit jacket. The… Read more »

Monday Madness

I’ve been hunched over my keyboard working on my rewrite so much so I woke this morning and can barely straighten out. I feel like a pretzel. But I really like the changes.  My editor is brilliant! I plan on putting up another first page this Wednesday for Why/Why Not? I’m really impressed with everyone’s suggestions on the two last week. Also I wanted to mention I did sell my paranormal trilogy!  Yay!  We pitched it as Sons of Anarchy meets Rise of the Lycans.  The books landed at Berkely with Cindy Hwang editing.  They will be releasing 5/11, 9/11… Read more »
