Word Crimes

I suggest TV stations across the country start airing this as a PSA. The More You Know...

Thank you, Mr. Yankovic. Thank you.

Tiny Potato Believes in You

I haven't posted in FOREVER. Mostly because I've been desperately trying to finish editing my book so my writers' group can read it and tell me whether or not it's any good.

Sometimes, doing what you love is hard.

Sometimes, you just need someone to believe in you.

I believe in you.

And so does tiny potato.

Long, Dark Night of the Squirrel

Today your Saturday morning funny is brought to you by the amazing Becca Rose of @bookwormbeaut Twitter fame. And squirrels. Seriously, read ALL THE PAGES. This is why Twitter is my absolute favorite form of social media.

Sparkles and Butterflies and Unicorns, Oh My!

There's a joke in my writers group surrounding unhappy endings in books or films. Several of our members can't stand it if a story ends without resolution, or in a sad and/or depressing way. As we like to say, their stories have to have "Rainbows and Unicorns". I am one of the few who actually enjoys melancholy storylines (as long as they're done well) and thereby, I often have to give a "no rainbows and unicorns" disclaimer when recommending books or films.

You can understand why this made me giggle.

Why Is The Ink Always Gone?

This is why I don't complain when magazines and publishers only accept email submissions.

Calvin On The Creative Process

With the things I sometimes end up researching for a story, I'm almost positive the FBI has pinged on my Google searches.

Calvin On Storytelling

The blog has been quiet this week because I've been hard at work on the final draft of my novel! The end is near! I'll be back next week with more posts, including my review of  The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart. But for now, enjoy a little Calvin and Hobbes...

Bonus Challenge: What do you think Calvin's explanation of "The Noodle Incident" was? Leave your story in the comments. Extra points if you can Twitter size your reply at 140 characters or less. :)

Off Switch? Ha!

This is a fairly extremely accurate representation of how my brain works.

Book Zombie

Besides writing stories, the other thing I've loved to do since I was a kid is draw. Growing up, you'd typically find me with either a book or a sketch pad in hand. So for today's Saturday fun, I thought I'd share a recent bookish sketch, inspired by one of my favorite quotes.

Speaking of zombies, I'm currently reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. Stay tuned for the review!

It Made Sense in My Head...

My 2011 NaNoNovel went a lot like this. I think my husband can probably sympathize with Linus.
