Pitch Wars, NaNoWriMo, Flash Fiction (And Me)

So there's been a lot of writing stuff going on in my life.

Not here on this blog, obviously, as evidenced by the monthlong gap in content.

But I got into Pitch Wars.

My second Original Syn book came out, and the third one is nearly done.

I'm doing NaNoWriMo, although I'm not writing ANOTHER new novel just yet. I'm using the goal-setting and community spirit to help see me through my Pitch Wars project edits (apparently revising is now a "kosher" NaNo tactic; used to be if you weren't starting a from-scratch project, you weren't really doing NaNoWriMo).

I've done two reading events/"author talks" in the past month and have another five scheduled before year's end.

I attended the Prairie Writers & Illustrators Day conference last weekend.

I staffed the Ashland New Plays Festival last month.

I'm trying to get some of my own play production stuff lined up.

And have I mentioned lately that none of this is my "real job"?

Hence I've fallen behind here.

But while normal was never the goal, maintaining some sort of blog presence is - and I'm even thinking of tying it in with a podcast experiment in 2020.

All that to say, don't give up on me here just yet. I may even try to squeeze in a flash fiction piece this Friday.

After all, I'm teaching a flash fiction writing workshop next month.

Oh good Lord I just emoji'ed in my blog. Maybe I really am losing touch with writing here ;-)

(Seriously, though - so much exciting writing stuff. Just a lot of plates to keep spinning! Thanks to those of y'all still checking in on this site. Hi, Mom.)


  1. Hi, dear. For some reason I haven't figured out how to get notifications when there's something new. I'll work on it.
