I feel like I can add the tag #amwriting this week because I did actually do some writing, even if it wasn't a lot. I managed 1700 words on Thursday before I headed off to work, and while I'd had intentions to write on Friday and Saturday, it just didn't happen. I spent Sunday afternoon … Continue reading Progress is Progress #ROW80 #AmWriting #Mourn #KansasBeatitude
A time to sleep & a time to write #ROW80
I love how as soon as I start sleeping again because the baby starts sleeping again, he immediately stops. It's been about three days straight of no sleep at night, and while last night was better, it's not been great at all. I've also had a lot of pressure and stresses going on at work … Continue reading A time to sleep & a time to write #ROW80
A new work in progress #Mourn #KansasBeatitude #WIPpet
It's been a while since I've done WIPpet. It's also been a while since I've written and posted on this blog. I'm attempting to get back on track with this writing stuff and back into the habit of writing everyday. I've joined up with ROW80 this round in an attempted to basically write one short … Continue reading A new work in progress #Mourn #KansasBeatitude #WIPpet
Update 1 on Mourn #KansasBeautitude #ROW80 #amwriting
I ended up writing 2500 words on Thursday and then not writing again. haha! But 2500 words is something, and I have to keep telling myself that. I would love to average 2500 words a day again like I was doing, but maybe I need to work up to that instead of just assuming writing … Continue reading Update 1 on Mourn #KansasBeautitude #ROW80 #amwriting
Long Time No See! #writing #releases #ohMY!
Whew, it's been a long time since I've been around here. It's completely my fault, but I've had a lot going on in my life. For starters, I had a baby. And you know what? Sleep deprivation is REAL! I haven't been doing a lot of writing either because of said sleep deprivation. My mind … Continue reading Long Time No See! #writing #releases #ohMY!

The Addition and Subtraction of #ROW80
Well it happened, and it happened a lot more quickly than I thought it would. I didn't write yesterday, at all.

GOD and LGBT: Adrian responds to a blog comment.
I was asked to write a response to a not so Christian comment, and I do believe God was with me while I wrote it.
RGR received a comment yesterday that had nothing to do with the guestpost it was left on. However, we felt like we needed to respond, even if no one had seen the comment before we marked it as Spam. These are the kind of words gay men and women often hear and I am glad Adrian can give us a new way to see the words and take away their power.
There’s one thing in life I have never struggled with and that’s being a Christian. I’ve always felt called by God and loved by God. I’ve always been supported in my family even though I’m not “normal.” I’m on the queer spectrum, and I fall in a place that is rarely accepted. I’m bisexual, and yes, I’m also a Christian.
It’s important for me to explain this because I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard things like this…

Rainbow Con 2014
Hello one and hello all! I do realize that normally I'm supposed to be posting a WIPpet, as it is Wednesday. However, I'm not going to do that this week because I'm traveling to Tampa, FL for the first annual Rainbow Conference. I'll be attending as an author, so that also means, this is my … Continue reading Rainbow Con 2014

#authorcorner Jaye McKenna Interview!
I've had over the past few months the wonderful opportunity to get to know Jaye. We've been communicating back and forth via email after meeting on Goodreads in one of the groups.

“Damn Straight” with Francis James Franklin
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Today begins the newest project I have. I'll be posting interviews, guest posts and author spotlights every Monday throughout the 2014 year. For the first part of the year, I've decided to specifically focus on LGBT writers, meaning either the writer is LGBT or the novels/stories they write have main LGBT characters. … Continue reading “Damn Straight” with Francis James Franklin
Keeping it real…
I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I've had to take a break from the writing world. It wasn't willingly, but I had to. Depression hit hard and fast. I think it's something most people, if not most writers, deal with on a daily basis. Just recently Ned Vizzini killed himself; he was … Continue reading Keeping it real…

Jumping in, two feet forward
I feel as though I'm completely jumping into part of the market world. I've signed and paid for my first ad to be placed (no, I'm not saying where or how much--maybe if it works or does work, there will be another post on that). I've been doing a lot of giveaways with eBooks and … Continue reading Jumping in, two feet forward

Break through the walls…
Breaking through into the published world has been mostly pure luck for me. Staying in that world has been a series of mistakes, hundreds of thousands of questions that have even more answers, and trial and error. I am published through a small press publisher who does not have a lot of marketing—so while I … Continue reading Break through the walls…
Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Peek v Peak v Pique
These are fun ones and are very often misused. I think the easiest way to differentiate is to just write sentences with them. EXAMPLES Peek a boo! I see you! The peak was over six thousand feet high. The concept piqued the child's interest, so they gave the child more to study. We played peek … Continue reading Grammar Wednesday: Word Mixups – Peek v Peak v Pique
