My husband and I just got back from several days in NYC, where we attended the 2018 Writer's Digest Conference for the first time ever. Because my experience, especially with Pitch Slam, was very positive and fruitful (all four agents I sat down with requested pages), I figured I'd make a blog post about it. … Continue reading My Experience at #WDC18’s Pitch Slam!
Hi all! Truth: I would love to be writing a self-pitying entry right now about a lot of writing related things. I am so super thrilled for the now many, many writers I've gotten to known on Twitter who have recently gotten an agent/book deal/mentor/you name it, but at the same time, I'd be lying … Continue reading My Editing Process
Hi everyone! No real entry today. Instead, I wanted to provide you with a link to my first piece as a reviewer for BroadwayWorld's Rhode Island page: Riveting GOD OF VENGEANCE at Head Trick Theatre My next reviews won't be until the end of April/early May, but I'm looking forward to them. Other than my … Continue reading My First Review for BroadwayWorld
It's my birthday and I'm stuck at work because reasons, so instead of doing library stuff, I'm typing up this blog entry. Enjoy! Spring 1996. It was my last year in the ballet company, and I knew it. I was worn down - like, I can't overemphasize how BUSY I was in high school, between … Continue reading Sleeping Beauty Casting – A Tale
ETA: this is another pilfered entry from a previous, now defunct author blog I had last year. I meant to post it yesterday, on the actual anniversary of Garfield's assassination, but I ended up going to the ER with my husband AGAIN for this hellacious illness we're both suffering from. Anyway, please enjoy! 2002. Home … Continue reading Thank You For Everything, Charles Guiteau
Hi all, No new post this week, I'm afraid. I'm in NYC all this week with my husband and on top of a pretty full schedule, we're also both ill. ~_~ (But not ill enough to warrant cancelling everything!) So, I'll be back next week. If you'd like more immediate updates on what I'm doing, … Continue reading On Vacation This Week
Hi everyone! This post is actually an edited version of one from a previous "author blog" I started last year, when I first got serious about writing and publishing my series. Enjoy! [note: the auditorium that serves as the main background picture/banner/whatever on my blog is the very same theatre whose backstage is depicted throughout] … Continue reading Write What You Know? Yes and No
Hi everyone, I'm due for a "real" entry this week, and one's coming, but I just had to announce that as of today, I am beginning the first round of editing on Book One of Front and Center. I AM SO EXCITED. 😀 The place I originally envisioned stopping Book One wasn't going to work-- … Continue reading First Round of Editing, YAY
Hi guys! I don't think I'm going to have time to write a "real" entry this week, what with a medical thing on Tuesday and plenty of stuff to do at work. So instead, I'll leave you with some bullet point thoughts on last night's Tony Awards. Enjoy! I really didn't have a horse in … Continue reading Tony Awards 2017: Thoughts!
Okay, so I'd been making good progress on my MS for months, chugging along, writing multiple pages nearly every day. And then, lately, words stopped flowing quite as easily. I'd go to outline upcoming scenes and just end up sitting there staring at the screen. The problem was not the overall story; I've been creating … Continue reading Stuck? Talk to Your Characters
