TGI Leapyear

The stockings no longer hang by the chimney with care, but the mantle is loaded with snowmen. I’m too busy writing to replace them with heart decorations. Thank goodness for leap year because I need every extra minute of February. My novel-in-progress, The Fifth Coin, fills my weeks. The draft sat on my hard drive […]

The vivid imagery throughout brought me into the story and the plot moved forward with unexpected twists and turns as I have come to expect from this author.

Another NaNoWriMo Win…Now What?

  An accumulated 100,000+ words  of steaming, hot, mess await my attentions from two years of NaNo wins. “But, Sara, why are you including 50k from 2014 in your list of words needing an overhaul?” So glad you asked.

Messy Middles of NaNoWriMo

The ol’ blog has suffered my absence long enough and I’m a little stuck on my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s the perfect opportunity to procrastinate AND get the blog moving. Playing God in a fictional world is great until you get stuck with all the decisions. This year’s time suck of writing is an urban fantasy […]

10 Procrastination Tips For Autumn

1. Clean mud off a pumpkin. Never mind that the farm-rich, caked-on mud hasn’t bothered you for a week. 2. Take fall pictures of freshly cleaned pumpkin. 3. Plan the classroom Halloween party. Face-painting, toilet paper for mummy wrap, a snack, but, oh wait, allergies, so revisit snack ideas. 4. Make a meme of fall pumpkin […]

It’s Fundraiser Time Again

Each autumn, I anxiously await the same old, time-tested fundraising packet from school to sell wrapping paper and cookie dough. This wrapping paper is fan-effing-tastic. I know because I bought some two years ago and haven’t run out. That’s right, it lasts for freaking ever. Did I mention this blingtacular paper is double-sided? On a […]
