I’m anxious to hear about the artwork she did for the VA, but she’s not telling until she sees the news, dang it. […]

Patrick needs…a personality transplant. Dang it. Actually, now that I think about it, I like Kane better overall. He’s the tough, strong, silent, get-er-done type. Patrick is just…well, a dork, kind of. […]

Writing Session 1: THHGAuthor/Genre: JD/rom suspenseWords written:  335Total Words:  31,815Time Spent:  15 minutes (break)  Notes: Dang it. *Now* the real story finally comes out…and it means the major revisions I’ve been dreading are a definite must. Fortunately, after I plug the *real* plot in, the whole story will make a lot more sense, but it’s going to entail a […]

The mind is a horrible thing sometimes…with way too much control over our physical responses.

June 11, 2013: English Breakfast

Writing Session 1: English BreakfastAuthor/Genre: JD/rom suspenseWords written:  71Total Words:  7,197Time Spent:  15 minutes (break)  Notes: Not quite the blazing start I’d hoped for this morning, but the particular style of writing required for this little section takes more work, or it does for me. Describing things from a hazy, doped up state and still getting all the information […]
