Glitter and paints–promises that I’m not a diva!

I do realize that I did not participate in WIP Wednesday yesterday. There is a reason. Anything that I wrote this entire week was entirely inappropriate for WIP Wednesday. I couldn't even fudge it with only certain lines. The entire writing consisted of one single, long running sex scene. So...I didn't participate. Next week, loves! … Continue reading Glitter and paints–promises that I’m not a diva!

Grammar Wednesday: POV–3rd Person Omniscient

So, you thought you were done with the last post? You're not. There is one more. This person is slowly becoming more popular, but there are still a lot of readers and editors and publishers and betas and such and such that don't like it. Do you know what omniscient means? Well, since I'm into … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: POV–3rd Person Omniscient

May 17, 2013 — San Lucas Toliman and Antigua

May 17, 2013 – San Lucas Toliman and Antigua   The differences in the work the group was doing today was starkly different from the many other groups we have seen. The group today seemed to have a lack of respect for the indigenous culture and spirituality that the others had. It wasn’t just with … Continue reading May 17, 2013 — San Lucas Toliman and Antigua

Grammar Wednesday: POV–3rd person

Third person is my favorite person to write in. I have to say, I absolutely love and adore it. Recently people have said they don't like third person because they are distanced from the character and can't get into their mind. Also, people say that it creates confusion as to what is really going on … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: POV–3rd person

May 16, 2013 — Chichicastenango and Chontala

May 16, 2013 – Chichicastenango and Chontala   The market today was quite an experience. Far from quiet, it was overcrowded and just about everyone had a purpose for being there—locals and tourists alike. The way people move in such a large crowd is amazing, with really only room for one way to move, people … Continue reading May 16, 2013 — Chichicastenango and Chontala

The wondrous world of editing

I've been seeing a lot of posts on facebook, twitter, goodreads and more about editing and the editing process. I'm not one to miss the bandwagon. Editing is extremely important when it comes to finalizing ANYTHING, even emails to the boss. There can be some pretty blaring typos (I've made them and will continue to … Continue reading The wondrous world of editing

May 15, 2013 — Chichicastenango and a few places in between

May 15, 2013 – Chichicastenango and a few places in between Today was ridiculously inspiring. Meeting Miguel and his family, eating with them and sharing so much with them put so much of what we’ve been touching on intellectually into tangibility. The poverty that these people face and everything we, as Americans, take advantage of. … Continue reading May 15, 2013 — Chichicastenango and a few places in between

Forever Burn (Adrian Smith) Book Review

I asked to Tom to write an honest review of FOREVER BURN, and that is exactly what he did. Thank you, Tom!


Sorry it’s been a little while folks, but all my exams are over now! So I should have a lot more time to read and write, which will be lovely. So, this book ‘Forever Burn’ was sent to me for review by one Adrian Smith, and I’m very glad to have had the privilege of reading it. It is the first in a series, which will be gaining a prequel soon. Right, I best get on with a review!

Forever Burn is the story of James Matthews, a firefighter trying to make a difference in the world. Trained to stay calm in dangerous situations, James is a professional. However, she is having recurrent dreams; dreams about a girl she pulled from a fire years ago. They aren’t just normal flashbacks, and James has a feeling something is wrong. That’s not all though. Her secret love at the fire station…

Creative Buzz Hop: A road less traveled… (6/7)

I have generally always taken the road less traveled, from the first moment I was born to the moment that I'm living right now. This weeks Creative Buzz Hop is all about the road less traveled and the inspiration that keeps coming from being off the beaten path. Maybe that's more astute to my road--the … Continue reading Creative Buzz Hop: A road less traveled… (6/7)

It's so exciting. I should have it done by the end of this week (in theory). Today you will get two scenes, the first is … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday: June 5th, 2013

Grammar Wednesday: POV–1st person

I've decide the next group of grammar goodness will be about persons in writing. There are typically 3 persons, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! Go figure, the numbers go up. First person, at least from what I have seen, is becoming far more common--that might just be because I'm seeing it more, not that it actually … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: POV–1st person
