Hello again! The last few months have been absolutely crazy, and I'm afraid both my novel and writing blog posts have gotten dropped as a result. Between starting full time at a new job, moving, taking some PD courses, and then preparing for and recovering from minor surgery, writing of all kinds has been getting… Continue reading October 2017 Writing Goals
I am irrationally excited about this: Brace Yourself For A 'Dracula' Revamp, From The Creators Of BBC’s 'Sherlock' (Huffington Post)
I would add the book I’m currently reading to this list: Fragment by Craig Russell. One of the main POVs is written from the perspective of a blue whale named Ring. I’ll be doing an interview with the author soon, so I’ll be sure to ask him about what writing those chapters was like!
