I wore it for you every day for eight years…strong and proud…hoping you would see…but you never did and made me feel as if I wasn’t worthy. So my heart just sat there on my sleeve gathering dust and my knees became bloodied and bruised from crawling after you…begging…a futile attempt to acquire w...

Kristina ställde en intressant fråga i en kommentar igår som fick mig att fundera. Hur skapar jag karaktärer och hur gör jag för att lära känna dem?

För det första så tänker jag mycket på karaktären ifråga. Jag funderar över hur den skulle reagera i olika situationer, hur den uttrycker sig och hu...

So far I’ve re-written the prologue through chapter 12. What is worrisome and fun and exasperating all at the same time, is when I come to a page that doesn’t have any marks on it. Did the editor miss something? Did I do something wrong and actually write a page correctly? How’d I do that? How ca...

St. Gorgonia isn’t officially called “the Audacious.” But she was audacious.

Gorgonia’s parents, Gregory and Nonna, were both saints. So was her brother. We know him as . She probably thought of him as her whiny older brother.

“What’s your favorite book?” “What’s your favorite movie?” “Who’s your favorite music artist?” These are tough questions, and I can never give a single answer to any of them.

Like most girls raised in the South (or GRITS, as we’re sometimes known), I was raised to be compliant. Smart, sure. Sassy, even. But when push comes to shove, don’t.
