A for Alexandria

I have accepted an invitation to become a Resident Author in Alexandria. My posts will appear two or more times a month and I have no idea what I'll be writing about. Feel free to check it out! My first post was published this afternoon.

They also have an opportunity for guest authors to submit, so if you're interested, check out the Guest Post Policy tab and join me down the rabbit hole.

Hope to see you there!


P.S. I finally bowed to social pressure and joined Twitter. I know, I know. Follow me anyway...

Land Ho!

With the ever present urging of Cyrus Keith and several long months spent cursing my past projects while slashing at them with a machete, I've started writing again. I don't consider editing to be writing unless it's more of a rewrite than a simple content edit or search for typos. I do consider it to be under the writing umbrella, but, you know, different. Like bacon is technically pork, which means it came from a pig, but I'm not going to call my breakfast Wilbur.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm back to creating. As in, blank Word document and no freaking idea where this story is going next.

I have never been one to outline. I know many people it works wonders for, but my brain works well enough when I think of my characters and just say, "Go." Unfortunately, it doesn't "go" very often, as is evident in my huge gaps between blog posts. You can bet if I can't make myself sit down long enough to write a post, I'm probably not doing anything more worthwhile in the writing arena.

But I'm back to writing, and hopefully back to blogging. I have an invitation to be a regular contributor to another blog, and I am seriously considering giving it a go. I'll let you know when I get the details ironed out, but that pretty much means I'm going to be running rampant on the internet.
