being bad

I should be writing but instead I'm looking at TV.  Yes, I'm being bad, but I'm enjoying it!  "Nashville" is living up to all the hype.  Between this show and "Revenge" maybe the nighttime soap opera is making a comeback?  I hope so because juicy tales of backstabbing and betrayal are my favorite things to watch on tv as well as read.  I think I'll make backstabbing and betrayal one of the themes for my NaNoWriMo novel.

my first guest post / interview

I'm so happy to announce that I've completed my first guest post / interview with author H K Carlton on her blog Pick A Genre Already. Although my story doesn't come out until March, she generously gave me the opportunity to introduce myself to other authors and readers.  As anyone can probably guess, I'm still getting the hang of social media, so getting exposure like this is huge.  I hope I get more chances like this because this kind of networking and exposure are crucial to making it as a writer.  Please check out the article and let me know what you think!

taking care of business

I'm going on vacation in a couple of weeks and I'd like to be able to leave with a clean slate.  I've made some progress in that direction but still need to finish my short story and finish revising my novella.  Accomplishing both is definitely doable but will take more discipline than I've been exercising this week.  However, setting a deadline might help in achieving this goal.
