Z is for…Z! (Or Zed?)

Z is for Z or Zed! It’s the last day of A to Z! It’s been a lot of fun, and very educational, but I am also glad that it’s come to an end, and we can all rest a while, =) I thought about doing a big fanfare of a finale, but it’s been …

Y is for Yonder

Y is for Yonder! As we come close to the end of A to Z, I’m wondering what’s off in the distance for all you writers out there. Do you have any plans for what to do next, after you’ve finished working on your current project? Currently I’m working on an MS that has been …

X is for Xylophilous

X is for Xylophilous! So it’s the last half-week of A to Z, and we’re on one of the most interesting letters to theme, X. And because I like finding odd words, I’ve decided to go with xylophilous for today, =) Xylophilous is defined as growing on or living in wood; I also saw it …

W is for Welmish

U is for Unwind

U is for Unwind! Have you ever been on a writer’s retreat? This is something I have never done, but which I really hope I will be able to someday. I think the idea of a relaxing vacation devoted to unwinding with some quality writing time would be so fantastic, and so useful, too. I’ve …

T is for Time

T is for Time! How much time do you spend writing, per day/week/month? I write in spurts. Sometimes I will write everyday, and then other times (sadly) I don’t do much writing for weeks at a time. Various factors play into this, but usually it comes down to lack of inspiration/motivation. When I do write, …

S is for Songs

S is for Songs! I’ve also talked about music before on the blog, but mostly about whether you listen to music while you write. For today, however, I’m shifting focus and asking if you’ve ever come across a song that just seems like it was written for your story, or one of your characters. I …

R is for Research

R is for Research! I’ve talked about research here before, but today I’m interested in specifics…what has been your best or worst research topic for a writing project? I’ve got a story in production right now that involves life in the 1950s. This is a decade I’ve always been a fan of, but I wanted …
