“Turn and face the strange…” – David Bowie

Expecting Sunday’s song lyric?  Sorry if you’re disappointed!  The blog is about to get a makeover.  I’m going to ditch the song lyric, even though for me, that was a lot of fun.  Music has always been a source of inspiration.  However, not everybody gets that. I think sometimes, trying to figure out how the song fits into the story can detract from the piece itself.  So that’s out.  

You’ll see more of my serial fiction piece “Here Lies a Soldier” something I really want develop into a full length novel eventually.  I’ve also had a lot of fun writing backstory shorts starring my novel characters.  If I conjure up enough of that stuff, I could publish it as a collection.  Honestly, the constant stress of coming up with a new short story every week has really distracted from my novel writing process.  I really need to focus.  Keeping my short stories in my novels’ universe will help with that.

I’ll continue to share progress on my current projects, dispense my marginally useful writing tips and have a laugh or two at my own expense.  (Story of my life!)  Other changes are coming too.  I think it’s time for an updated photo, background image and maybe a tweak of the color palette.  Hopefully, it will give the blog a fresh new feel for the new year.    Come to think of it, I could use a new background and a tweak of my color palette, too…

Oh, and one more thing…

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all the kind support, meaningful feedback and yes, I’ll go so far as to say, friendship. I’ve met so many awesome people this year.  It’s been an absolute pleasure interacting with you all!  Keep it coming in 2016!

  2. Woo hoo!!! Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve. Also, the beautiful thing about a blog is that it isn’t static (it’s dynamic!) and it can change with you. You are honing your novel and we get to witness the process. Love it Friend! xo Whitney
